Happy New Year!

Happy 2011!  It boggles my mind to think of all the wonderful things 2011 has in store for us.  We will be bringing S home to be in our forever family, my sister will be having her 3rd baby, and we continue to be blessed with health.  I'm not much for resolutions(no offense to those who made them!), but my Starbucks habit might be out of control.  I'm not promising anything, but I may cut back a tiny bit!  To ring in the New Year we went bowling with our friends Jeff and Barb and several of their friends.  Easy group to get along with and a kid for every age group!  The girls both had a great time.     

On the 2nd we had our annual Christmas with the Klimeks.  Nan and Eric hosted and had an awesome brunch.  It was great to see them, but too short!  Everyone had to go back to work and school the next day so we couldn't stay late.  The kids all got pillow pets from the grandparents.  Great for EVERY age!  
I have no idea why the Grandpa's are in this picture!

As far as adoption news goes, we're just compiling all our paperwork so we can be ready when Russia starts back up after their holiday.  It is such a pain!  Most of the paperwork is re-do's and just time consuming!  It is all worth it to bring S home:)

  1. Ava got the ladybug pillow pet also. I had never heard of them, but the boys have. Hoping things will move quickly once the Russian holidays are over. Can't wait to hear all of the news.
