Wow...what a very remiss blogger I have been this past month. Or two....
What could my excuse possibly be you ask? Well I really don't have one except the busy bees were buzzing all over our household. I had two or three posts "in the cue" but as time passed they seemed outdated and too much else had happened! I honestly haven't had a free moment between holiday preparation, parties and social get-togethers to check other blogs, never mind post on my own!
So here I sit with a month and a half of bloggy news and I just don't know where to begin! So I'll begin where I left off and just fill you all in on all that we've been up to!
November brought my birthday and I turned another year older. Finally....29, oh what a good age to be. And yes....I am sticking with that
lie age. We had a nice family/friend celebration with one of my favorite meals, pizza and salad, after an afternoon at one of my favorite spots, the nature park. Perfection!
Then we went to the D.C. area to visit family for Thanksgiving. We had a fabulous time with Adam's brothers & families, his parents and some other family members! The adults had a grand time catching up and hanging out. And the kids all had soooo much fun together. It was awesome to finally see Sammy Wei being welcomed as one of the bunch. We had not only 1st cousins but 2nd as well which was great! The older kiddos were just wonderful with the younger and the households, back yards and hotels were filled with laughter and joy!
Here's the gang! Aren't they all just precious!
While we were there we got to meet a long awaited arrival! Acquaintances that have become fellow adoptive friends introduced us to their sweet daughter home from Korea in October! Sammy loved the "baba" or baby and kept tickling her chin...
And December was a busy month with Hanukkah and Christmas and all the festivities that come with each holiday! We visited Santa and his reindeer. Simone giggled and laughed but Sammy wasn't sure about him!
While we were up there I got together with an old high school buddy! Haven't seem him in quite a few years and it was awesome to chat and catch up with him!
It was GREAT to see you Mike -let's not go 16 years without getting together again!
As soon as I have a few more free moments I'll catch up on the Christmas festivities and the snow play! Oh...and the trip home. Yep, we traveled through "the blizzard", but made it home. Lot's of stories still to share!
So if your out there still, I thank you!
And Happy Holidays to all!
