Tons to be thankful for...

Thanks Leslie for the amazing pies! The chocolate cheesecake was to die for, they were all delish!

Not a great shot, but only one I have

We had a lovely Thanksgiving, hope yours was fabulous!

Pretty in Pink- "Gothca Day Outfits"

Sage & Sophie

They've grown right into these special outfits

Best Friends

Trevor's the bomb!

I took these pics a few months ago to celebrate their 2 year Gotcha Day anniversary, I better post before it's 2 1/2 years. Check out the first time they put these on after being home here and their 1 year anniversary here. They've grown so much. Love you sweet Sophie Mei & Sage Li, and TT!

Bouncing off the Walls...

Sorry I haven't blogged much lately, I'll let you know what I've been up to later, but here's a quick post to keep up. Sage is very proud of her rubber bracelet collection (just like Trevor's but girly). After all, a girl must accessorize!

Awesome big brothers!

"Bouncing off the Walls" birthday party

Fun with friends from school

Sophie, Halli, Sage

Happy Birthday Halli. A great party for a great girl!
They have such a fun Kindergarten class and have made such good friends, S & S are definately loved there! They're also learning a lot. They like having homeowork like their brothers and are so proud as they learn to read.
BTW, one of the girls broke my nose pretty sure at this party, I won't mention which one, it was an accident, but OUCH!

Look what we woke up too...

Sophie and Sage were thrilled to wake up to see everything covered in snow. They didn't waste anytime, started getting warm clothes on even before the sun was up. After breakfast, they waited by the window until it stopped snowing and mom said it was warm enough to go out.



What happened to Fall? Oh well, this is going to be a fun winter!

Halloween Parties

Sleeping Beauty (Sage) & the Snow Queen (Sophie)

They should've been monkeys with the banana (Trev) but they couldn't pass up a chance to be beautiful princesses. Of course Sophie couldn't be all fancy, she picked out the scariest trick or treat bag to contrast her gown, that's my girl.

We went to "Boo at the Zoo" this year. The kids enjoyed it but it wasn't that great. It was overcrowded, long lines, and I got yet another parking ticket, Nice (there's such limited parking, they must have issued at least 100 tickets that morning). Oh well, next year we'll pass on that party. But our city held a fabulous Haunted Halloween celebration. They thought of everything and went all out. The kids enjoyed the face painting, games, crafts, live music, doughnuts, and got to choose a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch at the end. They had spooky stories in the cemetary across the street (we missed that) but enjoyed touring the Sorenson home/museum (old antique home). It was well organized, quaint, and a lot of fun, just wish I was as organized and remembered my camera. Here are some other fun Halloween parties...

Sage & Minnie Mouse (Jen). Trunk or Treating at the church
