Four Day Weekend


The kids were off of school both Friday and Monday so we had a four day weekend!  Of course, it would have been a lot more fun if Daddy had been home, but it's still busy season.  Today, Brian's family came for a visit.  It was a beautiful day and we had a lovely time with them!

Conferences

 
 
Both of the girls had their parent-teacher conferences today. Their teachers had such good things to say about both of them!  They are both working so hard and growing so much!  So thankful for these teachers that know and love our girls so well!

This Week


 Molly made straight A's again this report card so she's on the Principal's Honor Roll!  We are so proud of her hard work at school!  She is doing such a great job!

 We've had a fun time celebrating Valentine's Day.  Aaron has been SO excited about Valentine's Day for weeks.  He's been making cards for everyone!  The girls have never really card too much about cards, but Aaron really loves them.  He gets so excited when someone gives him a card!  Nana also made Valentine's Day cookies with the kids.  Yum!  

AND ON THE ADOPTION FRONT....
We are waiting on Travel Approval!  I should be traveling in the next couple of weeks to pick up our sweet Ethan!  We sent him a package around Christmas and it finally made it to China this week.  Tammy sent us several pictures of him with the things we sent.  It is so sweet to see him looking at pictures of his family!  The kids loved looking at the pictures of him with the things we sent.  I think it made it all seem very real to Aaron.  We are all very excited to bring home our little brother!

Rayna


Rayna started in a new class around Christmas and she has been doing SO well!  In fact, she got to be Polar Bear of the Month in her new class!  Yay, Rayna!  (Aaron was excited to pose with the big polar bear in the office).

Rayna has recently started wanting to write a lot!  She's been making lists of all sorts of things.  We are so incredibly proud of our girl!

January Happenings


I've been a little slack with blog updates lately!  This time of year is Brian's busy season which makes things a little busier for Mama at home!  But everyone is doing well!
 
 
 
 

We are getting closer and closer to ETHAN!  We got an update on him last week and he looks great!  He is now 24lbs so he's grown a little since our update in August.  The orphanage described him as "active and cheerful."  Our agency has said that we we will be traveling either at the end of February or beginning of March.  Getting closer!
