I’m hoping this blog becomes an online journal of the day to day in our family, so as I finally get around to putting our yearly pictures in albums, I won’t forget what the hell we’ve done. It’s a way to keep friends and family who don’t see us regularly in touch with the pulse of our days (and even those that do see us regularly who care to climb on board). And finally it’s a way to branch out more into the Ethiopian adoption community we are honored to become a part of (hopefully this year).
Buddy and Lou have had a ball with their best friends, the neighbor’s girls, playing at each other’s houses, sledding, sitting by the fire to play games with me and L, and just having a more relaxed, less structured pace of life. I have to remind myself that it’s okay to not have structure every once in awhile (but that’s very difficult for a very “type A” planner). L is home from work today because of the road conditions. It’s nice having him here (he works in his “man cave” and we stay upstairs to try and prevent distracting him too much).

So that’s all for now! Who knows when the next post will happen–maybe tomorrow, maybe next year–but at least I can cross “start blog” off my list! Happy New Year!
**I have edited this post and removed the actual names of people. Yeah, I’m my father’s daughter–paranoid about the safety of some of the world’s inhabitants and certainly don’t want other people uncomfortable with me putting their children’s names in here (and pictures for that matter–just let me know if you ever want me to not write/post photos about you or your children and I’ll respect that completely).
