Last Quarter of 2013 in Review

Happy New Year! I wanted to post this message last night but I was too tired and too busy watching the "ball drop" in Times Square on TV :). Anyway, it's been a wonderful 2013 with our little Henry and I have included some photos below from where I left off in June (click on photo to zoom).

I will be updating my blog on a regular basis again (well, I'll try) since we have been matched with another cute little button! He's 15 months old from Zhengzhou CWI in Henan but currently in foster care. I will write more about our new son as soon as I figure out how to reconfigure the layout and design of this blog!

Wishing you all a Happy 2014!

The invitation I designed for Henry's
3rd birthday; the RSVP info is on the
back of the cloud.

My "Teeny Bots" cardboard cutout for Henry and
his teeny buddies; it took about a week to design
and build this, but it was totally worth it.
**** ****
The "build your own bot" robots ready for the children
(I may include another post about the party
as I have more to share!) and lunch box favors.

Henry at his second annual dental visit
(he was more cooperative but hated the cleaning).
