The Little Things....

Each day that goes by you follow your routine. You get up, shower, dress, get kids up, dressed, breakfast... and so the day goes. But every once and while you have to step back and smile at the little things. This was one of those moments.
For those who have adopted from International countries, you know that sleep is one of the more difficult things to manage. In our case it is no different. Cassidy still has a tough time sleeping - so when she was yawning over lunch, and I asked her if she was tired and she said yes - I didn't believe her (BAD MOMMY). Obviously I should have!!!!!

Welcome 2009

Welcome 2009. We have so much to be thankful for, and so much to look forward to. Now, as a family of 5, there are changes, experiences, and lessons that need to be learned. I can honestly look back and now and say WOW!! I was not certain that we were going to get through 2008, but now we have something to look forward to - 2009.

Max, Ethan and Cassidy have enjoyed their time together. They have started to really bond and it makes Dennis and I smile how easily Cassidy is adjusting in with the family. They enjoy movie night, riding bikes, and just building with the blocks.

We hope that 2009 is as fun and enjoyable as 2008 has been!!! We wish all of our friends and family the BEST IN 2009!!!!
