Many have asked so here's a little update on all of us and our processes -

Noah: Adorable, charming, so smart and so stubborn!
Mike: Running (training for an Ultra), phenomenal pharmacist, adorable, charming and so smart
Jennifer: Looking forward to painting and decorating - I just need more time!

House: Upstairs could be finished if we just had the time. I took a few hours and primed the smallest wall and have nailed down out colors (I hope). The next few weeks I will focus on getting it done, I hope to be moved up there by 4/15....

We've been getting dumped on for what seems like weeks so any hopes of working on our yard, deck or anything else has been put on hold.

Adoption #2: We have been licensed for Foster for a couple months now, we have been called a few times but nothing has worked out. We're not looking to "foster" in the traditional sense but have to be licensed to take an adoptive placement. We have an approved home study through State Adoptions and are in the mix of waiting families...wait and wait and wait. I get to make a photo album like we did for CSSM so I'm pretty excited about that. So really we're just waiting.

That's about it.

We earned it!!!

Our St. Patty's day started with the Whale Run! DH got first in his division again and beat his last years time by TWO minutes!!! I actually ran and got 20th. That being said you can't judge what you're going to see below.

Here's the proof:

Art & Wine!!

It must be good!

The art...not-so-much

They can barely contain their dislike...

(again blogger is not uploading right-grrr)

sorry for the head tilt

I think his face says it all

I can only drink away the horror

The many faces of Noah

BTW - it was his choice to be outside the window looking in.

For whatever reason blogger is uploading these sideways. So frustrating.

Surf Action

Back to Costa Rica posts (I'm getting closer to getting all our pictures cataloged)...My blog is essentially our family scrapbook/photo album so if I don't document here it doesn't get documented. These weren't actually taken by me for a change!

(Surf action pictures)

Getting our instructions

The observer - so cute!

We're off!!

It seems so much easier for the little ones

Up and going

G'pa S - a total surf dude!

The falling pictures of all of us are the BEST!!

Go Daddy!!

Now it's DH's turn

Go Baby!!!

This is my favorite!!! Thumbs up & toes curled!!

Now me...I have to admit I'm not comfortable showing

this much flesh on the www but I had document.

Hang Ten Dudes!!!
