Have a Great Weekend...

I am not blogging as much as I used to. We are very busy around here preparing for Sophia and Spring. Today I am hoping to put the finishing touches on Eli and Sophia's room and I'd like to get started painting the downstairs bathroom, we are going to re-do it too.

Zach is up at Michigan Tech with his Dad. That is where he wants to go to college, so they are touring the campus.

Tim's fishing boat needs some work, so he's going to be working on that this weekend.

We are busy busy!

Thank you for all of your comments below. I know that I will be using a separate travel blog, I still haven't decided about moving the main blog. I will let you all know the travel blog info.

Moving the Blog


I am thinking that I will be moving to a new blog to document our trip to China and our new family life which will include Sophia. I am not going to put a link to it, so if you would like to be informed when the time comes so you can follow us, please leave a comment below or send me an e-mail. I think we need a fresh start. This blog was about the wait and since we first saw our daughters face on February 19th, we are waiting no more.

A Peak at the Room...

Eli and his Grandma Peggy Bear. He just loves his new bunk bed. He's doing really well sleeping in the top bunk and can get up and down the ladder very easily and carefully. Eli has a quilt with sail boats on it.


Sophia's quilt came today and I just love it. It's from Target. It has different things embroidered all over it with different types of fabric. In the center is a princess ballerina with a toole skirt. I love the saying at the bottom of the quilt, I think it is so fitting for her... good night friends, I'll see you soon.


The shelf doesn't look level in this photo, the shelf is up higher on the wall, so I had to hold the camera above my head to get you this crooked picture. I'm not done with this shelf yet. The middle frame will have a photo of Eli and Sophia together on it. I like the doll on one side and the sailboat on the other, but I haven't finished in-between. It is a challenge to integrate a boy and girl room.
This is the top of Eli's dresser. It's not done yet either. But you can see where it is going. Eli's furniture is the stained wood. Sophia's is white. Most of Sophia's furniture is in storage since she will be sleeping in the bunk bed below Eli until we feel it is time to seperate them. When they move into seperate rooms, Eli will take the bunk bed with him and Sophia will have all white furniture.

I still have quite a bit do in their room, but I am happy with how it is coming together.

For those who have asked...yes, I got my cast off two days ago. I have a wrist brace I have to wear for 4 to 5 more weeks, but it is removable and I don't have to wear it at home. I am so glad to be rid of the cast!
