So, Sunshine has wanted me to post on her blog for a while now and I couldn't think of a better day than today...she's at work and doesn't know that I'm posting.
Today our boys are turning one and it's incredibly hard to miss this huge milestone. Since receiving our referral we have been thinking positively and hoping we would have traveled by now...very unrealistic but that was our hope. Now we just hope to travel by the end of the year (but that's not looking so promising either :-(). While the boys aren't with us we have still been celebrating with friends and family. A couple of nights ago we had a birthday party for "the Brothers" at Micah's house. Throughout the adoption process we have made so many new friends and it has been wonderful how supportive everyone is. Tonight, we are having a 30th birthday party for my sister who now has to share the date with her nephews...I don't think she minds. In fact, Megan, my nephews, and I are going to get some bday presents in a few minutes...I'm a major procrastinator.
Since today is my first post, I thought I better take a few pics for Sunshine's Blog:
A wide angle shot of the Boy's Room
Closet space is at a premium these days
Despite what you think, one crib is for the boys to share and the other is for our cat Kootenai
Our scary Halloween decoration....BUMPERS
A birthday gift to N. from Jody's Family
There is nothing wrong with boys playing with dolls. At least Franky my CHILDHOOD cabbage patch friend doesn't think so!
A rockin' moose from Grandma Clark
In order to eat supper at the table with our boys every night we needed to get some new chairs...for us too!
Sunshine decided we need two Injera baskets at the Holt Ethiopian Auction...I don't know how we ever managed without them!
