Hurry Home Maddie!

It's official! Our adoption paperwork is logged-in, and we are eagerly awaiting our baby girl from China! With the way things are going right now, it's going to be a LONG time until she's home, but we are always keeping our fingers crossed that things will speed up. One of the benefits of this long wait is that it gives us some time to really prepare for her arrival, although since this is something Ryan and I have been talking about for a while, it seems like we have already been waiting for so long. At any rate, this next year's focus will be getting ourselves into a bigger house--we have very quickly grown out of our current home. Two dogs, two kids, two parents and 700 square feet is getting tight!

Merry Merry!

Merry Christmas 2010! We started off this holiday season at the Magnificent Mile Lights Parade. It was C-R-O-W-D-E-D beyond words. Once the parade actually started, we lasted about 30 minutes, gave up and went back to our hotel room for dinner. Keegan and Regina had fun at our hotel, and shopping downtown.

Christmas celebrations were very fun too! Keegan and Regina received so many wonderful presents--we are still trying to get them all opened and played with!
