A few random things....

Here is a little of what we've been up to lately...... This is Addie and Phoebe. My best friend from college, Kate, is Phoebe's mama! Kate and I have been through a lot together. We have laughed and cried, shopped (lots!), eaten lots of meals(and chocolate!) together, visited each other all over the country, talked, e-mailed, and basically shared our lives for the past 14plus years. Never in my wildest dreams would either of us have guessed that we would be adopting little girls within a year of each other, and living 30 minutes away from each other, too! What a bonus. I'm SO thankful for Kate and her family. And we love SeeBee like crazy! Oh yeah, and we like brown and pink clothes, too! :) Riley fishes pretty much every day now. In between skateboarding, rollerblading, soccer and baseball, that is.......this boy does. not. stop. EVER!
Addie likes us to hang out in her playset with her. She has the best daddy in the world, and he hangs out with her every chance he gets. I love him! My friend Despy and I worked on our dossiers for China together. She just got back a few months ago with her new daughter, Tianna. Isn't she beautiful? I LOVE her big eyes!!
Addie reading to Tianna. They sat still for about 3 seconds the whole time we were visiting, I was just lucky to have my camera ready! (notice the book is upside down that Addie is reading). I love this picture!
A little more outside time...... And finally, we got to meet our newest little friend "baby Aidan". He is SO sweet! AND, he will be getting a big sister (or brother) from China, too! We're not sure when, but we can't wait!! So that's a little of what we've been up to. I am going to Indiana this weekend for a retreat with my China team. I"m so excited to meet everyone in person, and talk more about our trip. 5 more weeks, and I"ll be in China!!

I can't wait to hear about your weekend trip to Indiana and more about your retreat!

That picture of Addison reading to her friend is precious. It's all that more cute since the book is upside down.
