Here we go -- my first blog entry!

I'm officially blogging! Unfortunately, I'm a horrible writer, but I have been known to take a cute picture or two of our girls. I'll try to get AJ to do some witty writing for you occasionally, but for the most part, you're stuck with me and my camera.

So my first entry is not too boring, I thought I would start off sharing pictures of both girls' recent Gotcha Day anniversaries. For those not familiar with "adoption" lingo, Gotcha Day is the day each of our girls was placed on our arms. We recently celebrated Lia's 2nd Gotcha Day (August 28) and Lily's 5th (October 27).

We took Lia to Build-a-Bear (and Lily got to build one too, of course). Lia picked a monkey and dressed her in her favorite color purple.




And Lily picked a panda and dressed her in a pink princess outfit.




And for Lily's 5th Gotcha Day, we took the girls to the local indoor playground. It wasn't near as exciting as our previous celebrations but she and Lia enjoyed themselves.
