Little Miss Got a Haircut

I'm getting caught up on some things that I wasn't able to blog right before we left, so hang in there!

Miss Carlie got her first real haircut a few weeks ago! She thoroughly enjoyed the princess treatment that Miss Jennifer gave her while she was in the chair. Nicci was a big help when it came time for Carlie to look down :).

Lyndal asked Carlie this evening if she wanted to be called "Pepper" or "Tink?" She said, "I'm a PRINCESS!" When Nicole was about the same age she said something similar . . .
"Nicole, why are you so grouchy?" I asked. She said, "I'm not grouchy! I'm a PRINCESS!"
I love it!

We Got Our Girl!

We now have had Avery a little over 2 weeks. The above picture is our very first look at her in person and the bottom picture was taken Dec. 28 (after she was sharing the dog food with Jasmine:). I will post more details on our trip as I get time, but thought I'd at least start the blog up again. Avery fits perfectly! She has jumped into our household like she's been here forever. She eats a lot - constantly if we'd let her. She is sleeping pretty well and getting better at that even after recovering from jet-lag. We love her and still cannot believe she is here!

Hunting and Gathering

I started this pile a few weeks ago, just in case we needed to be ready quickly. And now it looks like we might need to be ready quickly! This is by no means everything, but it is a good start. Most of our foods, medical supplies, the front pack carrier, some Avery goodies, and other fun stuff are in here. The clothes will come later (if there's room:)!
