Last week I had to make a quick trip home for a funeral a dear family friend. She was my friend Melissa's mom and one of my youth leaders growing up. She battled cancer for many years. Her funeral was beautiful and it gave me a chance to reunite with many dear friends that I hadn't seen for years. In her passing she gave us a gift of renewing many friendships. I was able to reunite with one of my partners in crime growing up...Liza. For posterity's sake I will not post all of the trouble we got ourselves into. But I love her and I am so excited to be in touch again.
So this picture is like the worst quality ever I had to steal it off of her facebook because she still hasn't e-mailed me a copy of it.
Since there was no school on Veteran's Day, I let Maya and Eden have two of their favorite friends over for a VERY LONG play date. Maya and Elsa have been friends since they were two and Eden and Kate have been buddies since they were born.
Here they are dressed up as fairies...
On Wednesday I was able to go with Maya and her third grade class to see Peter Pan that a local children's theater put on. Edee tagged along too and we had a great time.
On Saturday we took the girls to see High School Musical 3. Aric is such a good sport. I'm pretty sure he was the only dad there. It was so fun to watch the girls faces during the movie. When Gabrielle and Troy finally kissed I thought Maya was going to die of embarrassment. Eden just covered her eyes and giggled. For paybacks Aric expects me to refer to him as "Wildcat" from now on.
(Look closely and you can see Eden's awesome outfit she picked out for the movie, aren't you lovin' those cheetah leggings. What you can't see is her black dress, hot pink cardigan, and those leggings were capri length so she wore black tights under them and then she wore her matching cheetah shoes. She and Maya both looked...as Sharpay would put it.... FABULOUS!)
And the biggest highlight of this week was FINALLY getting up on parent profiles. It is the number one adoption website out there. It took quite a bit of work to get all the paper work together and get all of our information and pictures up, but it is done. It felt good to actually do something that could, hopefully, get us closer to finding our baby. This waiting business is not good for someone who lacks patience the way I do. Keep your eyes and ears open, who knows, maybe one of you...my faithful readers, is the link to finding our little guy.
