Thanksgiving in Nebraska

Apology: I realize this Thanksgiving post is actually being written on March 19th. Oooops, I'm very sorry. The family blog has been neglected.... but is now revived.


Can you see Liam's name on the flag?
Liam gets a ride from Grandpa with his cousin

All dressed up and no snow to go


Favorite game with Grampa - throwing balls down stairs


Music time with Gramma

Does Nebraska really have weather this nice in November??

1 year ago today...

We saw our son's face for the very first time - on 11/25/08 - and received our official referral. Words can't explain what it was like for us to get that phone call and open up that email to see the first photo of him.
And soon afterwards, we were off to celebrate Thanksgiving with our family and were able to share the photo with our relatives and celebrate. And now, a year later, we are celebrating Thanksgiving again - and instead of a photo to share - we have our son with us to introduce to many....including his great grandmother!

We are so thankful.

Birthday Bash for YaYa in Galveston



A special birthday celebration for Grandma in Galveston - Liam's first beach experience!
Well, besides Coney Island - but that didn't really count.

Uncle Chris takes Liam into the water. It was a bit cold, but still nice weather.

Checking out the jellyfish with Daddy.

Reading a favorite book with Ya Ya

Checking out the tide with mommy as Ya Ya looks on...
It's coming in!
Early morning walk with Daddy in the jammies.

I love to play patty cake
Window watching with Ya Ya
Ahhhhhh
Let's go fly a kite. Can you spot the kite?
Happy Birthday Ya Ya!
