A Friday of Firsts

Today we had two firsts at our house. Ethan went to the dentist for the the first time & Mia got her first hair cut. Both events went quite well. Ethan was first and just loved sitting in the chair holding the suction tube. When he was done he told Dr. Larry he was going to be a independent dentist like Herbie from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Then Mia was up. She just sat on Amy's lap and enjoyed being fussed over. (Boy is she all girl or what???) We just trimmed her hair so everything was more even. With the way times goes by before you know it we will be getting first cars:(

My little man

Fu-fu Mia

Are you looking at me???

Jammie time is one of my favorite times of day. The kids tend to be so loving and willing to snuggle. These are randoms shots of my kiddos during my favorite time of day.

FFF- It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Playing shepherd

The Christmas glow is here

Daddy's little helper

Well it's's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Steve & Ethan finished putting out the lights this week so we are set. Now we just have to shop..(Amy's department:) We didn't get in line this morning to shop. I believe shopping is a non contact sport.....and didn't want to go into the "battlefield". But we still hope to snap up some good deals! Happy shopping to all!!

Gobble till you Wobble

Mia watches her first Thanksgiving Day Parade in awe

Happy Thanksgiving

Miss Mia in her holiday attire

Gobble till you wobble

Where's the pumpkin pie???

Ethan's food coma brought him to the floor

Today we give thanks to the Lord for all our blessings. Amongst the plates full of turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie, we took time to acknowledge all that we are thankful for. We are thankful for our family and friends. The love and support they have shown and given us over this past year has been incredible. They have all been there for us along Mia's adoption journey. Often we all asked "Are we there yet?"......but didn't have an answer. We never imagined how emotional the roller coaster ride was going to be. But today we give thanks that the journey has ended and Mia is now home. We now look forward to our first Christmas as a family of four and any other new adventures we may encounter. Thank you to all of our family and friends for all that you do. We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and gobbled till you wobbled:)

FFF Christmas Photo Edition

Tuesday we went for our Christmas pictures. It was rough with Mia. First off our appointment was at 7:00pm, yes I know it is late but it was the only opening they had. Then Mia wouldn't sit still long enough to take pictures and she wouldn't smile. So this year Mia won't be smiling in our Christmas cards, oh well maybe next year. Ethan on the other hand was a HAM!!!! He loved smiling for the camera, can you tell we have him trained:) Yes our Christmas tree is up (it was up on November 3) and we are finishing the outside lights. We do it this early so we can enjoy it and we don't feel so rushed around the holidays. Yes we know we are crazy...but we have seen other houses decorated too:)
