Today was the perfect day! After church Anne, Rick, Emily, and the girls came over for lunch and gingerbread house decorating. Adrienne and her friend put all the houses together and then each kid had their own to decorate. After they were done they wanted to play outside in the snow. It was really coming down! They lasted a long time sledding! Finally the little ones came in for hot chocolate and Adrienne and Madi stayed out to make a snowman. It is the cutest snowman that has ever been outside our house! Dorky I know, but it was a Hallmark kind of day! I was thinking we would have to do the gingerbread houses after we get back from Russia, but I'm so glad we didn't wait. Yesterday Mark worked on many of the things I consider "his department"! Cell phones, power converters, hotel reservations, etc. So much to do! In just a week we will be meeting our sweet girl! Last night was all about Adrienne and her play though, and today was all about the kids. Priorities...the rest will come together!
