Merry Christmas!!!

We were very pleased to see a new photo in our email today. It looks like someone may have just woken up from a nap. :-)

I love the longer hair. I suppose that this is his winter doo.

I really wish we could show you his foster mother's face. She's a very sweet lady and always seems to have a smile on her face.

We know that Gavin is so loved and cared for by this wonderful lady and her family. We can't wait to meet them and thank them in person for all that they have done for our sweet boy. Knowing he is with a family that loves him so much, makes the wait easier.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!!!

Wonderful Weekend + Nov. WBC and Pics= Bliss!

What can I say, we love weekends!

...and this one was lovely. On Saturday one of my besties from a previous campus that I worked at, threw me a baby shower. I appreciate the time and effort that she put in to making it so special. Loved all of the games that we played and the cupcakes were to die for!

One thing that made it extra special were the people who were there. My mom was able to travel to this shower too and the friends that were there were mainly friends who I rarely get to see, since we seem to be spread out around the district...sigh! (btw my district has 70 elementary schools in it, YIKES!)

It was a special day and I am so grateful to have a special friend like EFG!

...and then later that afternoon when I picked up the mail, I saw an envelope with National Visa Center on it. Inside it explained that our paperwork was on it's way to the Embassy in Seoul, Korea! I have to say that knowing we weren't traveling until 2012 has made us sluggish in getting some things prepped for Gavin, but I have to admit...this letter has started making us feel a tad excited for the coming year.

...and when I was checking my email, what did I see, but an email with a Well Baby Check and pics of our sweet boy! It really was a treat. He seems to be getting taller each month. He's almost 33 inches and his weight hasn't changed much, still at 25 pounds...but that's probably due to the fact that he's beginning to finally walk!

Sigh...can I say with each new pic that we get, the excitement is starting to build. Of course when the New Year hits and people start to travel I'm sure that we will be on a roller coaster of a ride!
We can't wait...and we can't wait for you to follow us to Korea and back!
