We went to the new Coke World! Don't worry Brian, it isn't dramatically better than the previous one. We did pick you up a little gift.

Here are our hosts for the weekend, D,Q & L

I loved watching little L...however she didn't warm up to us very well. Maybe next time we see her :)

It's a Coke couch and rug! Miranda wanted this just for Uncle Brian.

L did warm up to Miranda. Miranda loved holding her hand and walking with her. There were several times that we needed translation. I couldn't tell if she was babbling or speaking Vietnamese.
I am so proud of us. The girls did excellent with the food. We were served a fish (with the head on) and they didn't even flinch. The fish was very good, however I didn't get near the head! We went with some new Vietnamese friends that Dave met at a birthday party the weekend before. We ate Vietnamese food all weekend. It was a wonderful experience for me. I know I won't starve when we go pick up our son!

Snow in the SOUTH!!!!

The girls have been praying for snow for 4 years!!! We didn't get much in Oregon and I knew there would never be a chance they would get it here. I guess I was wrong. They lucked out because we were headed to Atlanta last weekend and they received more snow that Montgomery. I was delighted to let them play. I haven't seen them have so much fun in a long time!

My brother sent this photo to me yesterday. I was excited for him. I did a little photo editing to make it family friendly :)

The Girls were complaining that we couldn't have ultrasounds of their little brother like other babies. We saw this idea on an Adoption Website and decided to make an "Ultrasound" of our own. If you look closely-the Baby is actually the outline of Vietnam.--Dave

Happy New Year!

I am delighted to see a New Year arrive! The things we are looking forward to this year: traveling in conjunction with a move, me quitting my job, hopefully get a referral for our son!

We went out to some Geo Cache sights yesterday with Dave's GPS. I think we will go hang out today too. McKenzie has shingles again and needs to be quarantined. So, we are doing things that are close to home. Here are few pics from yesterday.
