Funny Face & Post-adoptive Meeting #1

Nathan is a gifted actor. Seriously. As in, could probably pursue a highly successful career. This is his "tough guy" face. It's hard to take it too seriously given the dino-jammies he's wearing,
but he's working on it.

We are a bit behind schedule, but are about to begin our post-adoptive meetings with the social worker who did our home studies back when we were preparing for adoption. It's going to be FUN to introduce her to our cutie-pie, awesome, ACTIVE boys!

Other than that news, we did manage to get away on a mini family vacation last week, in Nashville. John had to go there for work so we all tagged along & had a great time just "being" all together. The boys loved swimming in the hotel pool, & eating travel treats & watching movies as we drove. They are luckier than they know! DVD players had not even been invented yet when I was their age! Wow ...I am feeling old.
By the way, I found my first real wrinkle recently...
but I digress...

Love This!

"There are ways to teach a child of his significance regardless of the shape of his nose or the size 
of his ears or the efficiency of his mind. 
This is the concept of human worth
intended by our Creator."

 Tirian is about six months now & I need to make him an appointment for his neuter surgery.
He is both sweet & spunky at the same time. 

Juneau was terrified of him when we first brought him home as a small kitten, but now they are great friends. Tirian likes all dogs (we have so many in & out of our home) & loves to play wrestle with the smaller ones. Juneau watches carefully & steps in if she thinks a dog is getting too rough with "her cat"!

A Few More Christmas Memories

 It was a lot of fun to share Christmas with Nana & Papa this year. 

 Their dog, Toby, fits right in with the rest of the gang.

Goodbye Christmas, Hello New Year

 Happy Faces

Silly Faces

Yes, I know it's already Jan. 9, but we've been so sick lately that I am finally coming up for air & recognizing the new year. Wonder what 2011 will hold?
