Snowflake Factory

Our house was a snowflake factory today. We made lots of big snowflakes to put on the railing of our stairs instead of our normal lighted garland. If you would like to make some snowflakes, this is the movie that we watched to learn how to make them. They are very easy to make and turn out great!

Update to Gotcha Day


When our travel group gets together at our house we always have all the girls sit on the stairs for a group photo with all the parents taking pictures. We did that again last Saturday but this time the girls insisted that the parents sit on the stairs, too, while all of the girls took photos. It was pretty funny.

10th Anniversary of Our Gotcha Day

Ten years ago today we met Abby and became a family. In the adoption community that is called your "Gotcha Day". If you would like to revisit some old memories, you can watch the short video of our first meeting called Our Trip to Get Abby (this is the first imovie Karl ever made and it still makes me cry every time I watch it) or read the longer story version of our trip. Abby is now a thoughtful, kind, compassionate ten year old with a blog of her own called All About Abby. What will the next ten years bring?

Then


Now







Finally for one more trip down memory lane, here is the video I made for Abby's 10th birthday called Abby's First Decade.

Play with Me, Please...


I guess we haven't been clear enough when we explain the rules about no dogs or dog toys on the furniture to Annie.

My Tween


It's official. I am the parent of a tween. Abby taught herself how to find Taylor Swift music videos on YouTube.
