Congrats Rebecca

I wanted to post a HUGE congratulations to my dear friend Rebecca. Her family accepted a referral for a beautiful little boy from China named Xu Bing. Her blog is posted in my favorites so feel free to check it out! She is a wonderful blog designer who is going to have her hands full soon with her growing business and a 2 year old boy coming home~

Love you Rebecca and congrats again!

Long time no see

So I realize that I have been a bad blogger (and bad photographer) recently and I want to remedy that (Grace, thanks for keeping me in line). I came home tonight and took a few pics. Both Noah and Logan are doing really well. Noah is eating like theres no tomorrow and growing every day. Logan has taken quite well to his role as big brother. We have been among the unlucky masses who have had the nasty flu bug. Everyone but me (thank goodness) has been passing it back and forth for 3 solid weeks. I am praying I do not get it as I am leaving for Ethiopia in 2 1/2 weeks. Hilena, here your mommy and grandpa come!!!! Thats right, I am lucky enough to have my dad traveling with me this time. I am really excited to have someone from my family along to share the experience with me!

Wow, I didnt realize how long it had been since I posted. Needless to say the time has really flown by lately. Noah is adjusting to life as member of our family tremendously well. He is a good-natured little guy!

Yesterday was such an answer to prayer when we found out that Hilena had finally made it through court. She is officially ours. We are excited beyond belief. I told my friend Kelly yesterday that I am totally "thinking pink" for the first time. This is a new (and quite pleasant) concept for me. I have been looking at nothing but trucks, dinosaurs, matchbox cars and all that is blue for several years now:) I am not complaining as I LOVE my boys but Hilena coming home will add some new "color" (pink is such a lovely color) to our testosterone filled houshold.

I have decided that I will be going back over to pick Hilena up. I am excited to go back over and spend more time with all of the kids. Hopefully this trip will be considerably shorter than my original 11 day adventure.
