Hmmm... could this be a sign?

I had a few good signs being from this picture I took at the Georgia Aquarium at my favorite gallery.... I know somewhere in the adoption world or at least on the Taiwan board, moms have referred to their newly referrals as "XY" .... check out this picture....

Gymboree here I come....

I was good today and I did not go over board.....but I could not pass up Gymboree today at the mall. I went straight to the clearance racks...check out Ellie's new pj's and hat...too cute!

The Best Taco Shells in the world....

These are the best taco shells in the world....but you only can get them in KANSAS!!! And we're (Brian) not in Kansas anymore..... so, my taco shipper (Aunt B) sent me 36 boxes of shells...yippie!!!!! Thank you Aunt "B"!! If you're ever in the KC area, stock up! Trust me on this one....oh, don't forget the Silva's chips. Can't get those here either!

More photos of Ellie's room...

I do have one last thing to add to her room, it's her wooden letters "Ellie" to the wall....but I need to order them & paint them!

Brian & I copied "Pottery Barn" doll house bookcase and built it ourselves!!! It turn out beautiful (and bigger) with a savings of a few hundred dollars!

Our fat cat.... Thumbs

Our Thumbs has been fighting a bad infection the last few weeks, and he has lost his battle with diabetes also. We made a decision to put him down lastnight, which was difficult because he has been apart of family from the beginning of our marriage. He was a wonderful cat, so friendly, lovable & FAT! He was everyone's friend, would rub up against & sleep with the neighbor's HUGE chow! Beatrice grew to love Thumbs and I think Thumbs loved Beatrice too... Fergie could care less, she just wanted him for his food. You were a wonderful cat and you brought great joy to our lives the last twelve years. We will miss you, Thumbsy!
