"Gone, Gone, Gone, I've Been Gone So Long...

I've been gone, gone, gone so long!"


I don’t even know where to start to try and catch up. I am weeks behind on my emails, I am trying to get caught up on the blogs I follow and recently my posting here has been non-existent. Between Christmas, New Years, being sick and switching offices at work I have felt like I don’t even have time to go to the bathroom!

Here is a slideshow of some of our holiday fun.

We had a wonderful Christmas with our friends and family. As usual we celebrated with too much good food and drinks, so now we are headed back to the gym so we can work off all of our consumed goodies.

Here is a slideshow of some of our favorite kiddos durring the holidays.

While I was taking my blog hiatus we passed a major milestone on our adoption journey. We have officially been logged in with CCAA for 1 YEAR!!! Here is what the count up meter on my blog looked like on Jan. 29, 2007:
















In honour of our 12 months down I would like to share this video:






We rang in the New Year with our friends Lisa & Jeff and Erin & Derek and all of their adorable kiddos. The evening was spent with good food and lots of laughs and of course fireworks!
















Larry and the girls waiting for the fireworks.


















Jeff shooting off his gun at mdnight. Now that is a smokin' gun!
















There is so much more blogging to be done but Larry has just challenged me to a game of Yahtzee so it is my duty to now go kick some butt, lol!
