Happy Valentine's Day!

Dominic made me a Valentine card at school -

A few pictures of us getting ready to celebrate with our bag of kisses...

Dominic and Jack

Dominic has taken a greater interest in the cat over the last few months. Normally they don't pay much attention to each other since each believes they run the house...

Dominic brought the cat breakfast in bed (after dumping the water all over the kitchen) -

And was determined to give him a kiss, sound effects and all.... MUAH!

Work hard. Play hard.

Is it October yet? :)

So excited that we're going to be able to make it to Guatoberfest this year! Looking forward to spending time with our online friends and it will be the perfect 1st cruise for Dominic! Now he's just got to get a job to help cover the expense. :)

Who else is going?

Our First Family Day



One year ago today, Dominic and I were reunited forever. While the trip didn't exactly begin as planned, all ended well and I wouldn't trade our extended time in Guatemala for anything. Dominic has grown and changed so much over the last year, but on occasion I get a glimpse of the little boy I met on my early trips to Guatemala and I am reminded once again about the early moments I was fortunate enough to share with him and not so much about the moments I missed...

Our celebration plans today were foiled by a busy day at work and more snow.... We ended up having dinner at home and "celebrating" with some leftover Krispy Kremes and one of the gifts I collected for Dominic while we were in Guatemala.

Dominic showing me that this is not simply a backpack or a "man purse", but a place to keep his tools....

I am still in awe of this amazing little boy. And just when I think it isn't possible, I love him even more!

Getting back on track...

We're still here.... This video from our recent trip to Chicago sums up our life the last few weeks...

We get a little momentum and then we end up face first. :) We'll be back on track soon.
