Celebrating the holidays...part three

Happy New Year!!! We are praying that this is the year that we see our next child (ren)'s face and travel to Ethiopia to meet her and bring her home to meet her sweet sisters! We can hardly wait! Today marks SEVEN (not sure on the weeks) months on the list so we are hoping that "the call" comes soon!



Last night, we had a New Year's Eve party. We made the tomato and cheese and cinnamon bun pizzas out of the latest Rachel Ray magazine....yummy! After dinner, we popped off party poppers in the driveway and finished the night up watching the countdown to the new year on YouTube. Luckily the girls didn't mind at all that the countdown was for 2008 and it was only 7:00 p.m.! They couldn't have been more excited or blowed their horns any louder if it had been 12:00 a.m.! We feel so thankful for all of the blessings of 2008!

Enjoying party poppers for the first time! Please disregard the messy garage...maybe that should be a new years resolution! Haha!

Today, Ally Grace and Brennan came to visit (with Mimi and Papa). We finally got a picture of the four kids together without Sophie Le crying. This picture is a year and a half in the making!
