Ringing In The New Year

We had a kid-friendly New Year’s Eve Party tonight (Attending were the Strouds, Kubickis, and our favorite babysitter Amy). Alex was really excited to fix his own plate and made sure everyone had chips on their plate all night long. With lots of food and laughs we toasted the New Year at 9 pm. Wade…

Adoption Update

We’re still waiting, but the numbers are getting smaller. We were recently told there are 35 families waiting to be matched with a baby. 6 of those families have a home study completed in 2009. The remaining 29 have a home study completed in 2010 (the program was put on hold for 2011). We are…

Here And There

Wade spent the day flying just to fly. He was four segments short of making Gold status and had an extra ticket. Obviously he was gone most of the day so Alex and I ran errands and then had Abby and Asher over for dinner.

Returning To Normal

I spent the day trying to find homes for everyone’s new Christmas gifts. Alex spent the day playing with toys. He didn’t even notice when I packed up three bins of old toys for the attic. Maybe tomorrow I’ll make it to the grocery.

Slowing Down (Thank Goodness)

Today was a nice and relaxing day in Collierville. The weather was nice so Alex decided to change the tires on Granny and Pop’s minivan. Later that afternoon it was back to the construction site. We ended the day by getting together with the rest of the Burch family. Alex wasted no time in attaching…

Christmas Part 3 – Memphis

Alex woke up on time (his clock turns green at 7) and couldn’t wait to see run into the living room and see what Santa had brought. After church Alex convinced Pop, Aunt Emmy, and Uncle John to read his new Curious George book to him. Then we had Alex pass out all the stockings….

Christmas Part 2 – Dad’s House

Alex and Harper had plenty to keep them entertained at Dad’s house. We weren’t up too long before the rest of the family appeared for a family breakfast and then lots of playing! We returned to Mom’s house for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner with her side of the family. Alex loves having older cousins…
