Good News!

While I am putting together pictures from this Christmas, which let me say the "cute" was not in short supply, I wanted to share some good news!

We have our official LID for our second adoption! The date is December 24th 2007. LID stands for Log In Date and it is this date that China uses as a reference point. For example, when the babies are matched China announces that they have matched from December 1st through to December 9th 2007.

Unfortunately this date really doesn't mean much - at least not right now. The wait has increased to about three years - we weren't planning on getting our paperwork started until 2008, but we fast-tracked it to get our place in line. So now we'll have plenty of time to enjoy Hannah and get her ready to be a big sister.

Hannah is famous!

During our local Christmas parade Hannah was photographed by the local paper. The photographer came by and took down Chris and Hannah's names while I was in the house getting some coffee - oh darn. Anyway when he told me, I thought there was a small chance that she would get in the paper. Low and behold, Hannah's got the largest picture in the whole spread. What a ham bone. Don't tell her - it'll go straight to her head.

We love Cole Man

Here are some recent pictures of Hannah with her cousin Cole. We call him "Cole Man" because it just fits. Hannah was kind enough to pose with her cousin while they were hanging out together.

Birthday Party

Here are some pictures from Hannah's cousin, Greyson's 2nd birthday party. I can't believe he is two already! And here is Hannah being such a silly girl.
