What are we doing while we wait for more news from Ethiopia...

Time at our house seems to fly by... I wonder if time will start to slow down throughout the adoption process... In the mean time, this is what we have been up to. We headed to our friends' cottage for the night. The scenery was beautiful...the weather was very cold!
The boys decided they were tough enough to spend the night in the "boys only" special hang out room (above the garage...no heat).

We decided to take a picture of the thermometer in the room...notice the inside temp got to a whopping 24 degrees last night. They had electric blankets and reported that they were "hot."

This morning, some of the kids baked cookies (it counts when you buy the dough, right?)...

While we had fun with the cookies, the dads were outside cutting up some fallen trees...

The kids had a great time learning to snowmobile. Did you ever hear of knee boarding behind a snowmobile? They also thought it was cool to be on the frozen lake.

Is this the coolest tree fort, or what?

What a fun day. Sharing time with friends and family...that's what life is all about!

  1. What a fun "last minute" night. I think a night by the cozy fire is exactly what we ( meaning you and me) needed. A day outside exploring various winter activities is exactly what the boys needed (Tim and Doug included).
    A, C, and Q have finally thawed from their "cold" sleep. Always fun to hang out with your family. Great food, great company and great conversation!
