Happy New Year

We are thankful for all the experiences of the past year, both positive and painful, as they make us who we are today. We look forward to the new, and wish everyone peace, love, happiness, health, and acceptance in the coming year.

Drew and Aiden spent New Year's Eve cruising the family-oriented activities downtown at the waterfront. It is nice that we are so close to downtown. I have some sort of a cold, possibly strep throat, so I tried to get some rest. I will call the doctor today to see if I should be tested.

The weather is delightful. Highs around 70 and cool enough for a comforter at night.

We cleaned out three boxes from the attic this week. More is coming down this coming week. Almost all the infant things will be donated. We can get what we need again if we need it. Aiden enjoys replaying with the baby toys. He doesn't remember them (it seems like just yesterday), but plays with them nonetheless. I like getting things out of the house. Drew says soon I'm going to remove him from the house too.

I'm beginning to add adoption blog links to my blog. It is a good way to keep the blogs in one place so that I can find them.
