Happy Birthday Michael!

Today is my brother, Michael, 31st birthday! This picture was taken at Thanksgiving with his son Bryan "saggin" his shorts! Michael is a natural dad to his sons Patrick and Bryan, a great outdoors man, a fix-it man (not sure where he learned how since or dad tries, but.... sorry Daddy) and fabulous Kindergarden teacher! We had a lot of fun together growing up and were even college roommates one year! Hugs and puppy dog kisses Mikey!

3 Month LID Anniversary

Today is the 3 month anniversary of our log-in day! It is amazing how fast the 3 months have gone! Hopefully the next 12 or less will go just as fast! We still remain optimistic that the CCAA will speed up! There is always hope and miracles DO happen!

My Boys...

Troy won 1st place in his age group (30-34) today at the LSA 5K with a time of 21:20! He placed 8th overall. I on the other hand, got 3rd in my age group with a time of 35:37! I walk/ran the 3 miles which wasn't too shabby since I haven't run in maybe 3 years! I am a water baby! Way to go Troy Boy! By the way, this is his first race since his back surgery in November! I think he is doing awesome!

Jack enjoyed the 60 degree weather today with his hedgehog! His dad says he needs a "poo (shampoo) and cut"! I find him pretty cute as this stage, but I understand!

This is what we saw at the top of the stairs when we came home yesterday! Jack had all of his favorite "babies" collected in one spot!

This Time Last Year...

We were in Alaska for Travis and Rebecca's wedding(My BIL and SIL)! Happy First Anniversary Travis and Becca! Today is also the ceremonial start of the Iditarod! We saw this last year and it is amazing! We didn't realize how tiny (thin) the sled dogs really are! The movies portray them as thick coated Huskies, but the dogs are really far from that.

Troy and I have been busy with work, church, stamping workshops, etc. It is nice to have off this Saturday to just be US! It is snowing AGAIN, but just a beautiful dusting! It is a great day to stay home!

Troy moved our furniture in our guest bedroom into our empty 4th bedroom to have the "nursery" a blank slate and ready to go. We still have a long wait until we get our kid(s), but it is cute to see his enthusiasm to get it ready. We always talked about decorating it once we get our referral, but there are still nail holes to patch and clean up.
