Dahlia turns 5
Dahlia turns 6
Reminds me that each minute with our children is precious and should be treasured. (If only I wasn't so 'brain-dead' most of the time.) It's one of the reasons I wanted to start this blog - to force me to pause and really take in everything before it passes. To freeze frame bits and pieces instead of living on fast forward.

Explanation: Rumor Queen (China Adopt Talk) just gave it an R2 (which is about a 40% chance of being true). We could have our referral picture by end April/beginning May on the outside and maybe even earlier!!! For those who don't know who Rumor Queen is - think Holy grail. Oh happy days. I was gearing up for about another 3 months because it seemed like we were in another slow-down (how many does that make it now?) so I was settling for a referral by June/July and travelling in ...aug..g..g August. But now there are distinct rumblings that we could have a speed-up. Oh God....please make it true. Dahlia will be starting college soon ; 0.
To be continued..............
PS. I need help with posting my pictures. I want to move them around and write where I want but it's only giving me templates that I don't like and can't maneuver. I know it do-able - but I can't seem to do it. Directions/advice/tips are all welcome. Thanx

This picture is from our Disney trip last Nov where Dahlia met ALL the princesses but meeting Mulan was a thrill. We got to greet her at her dressing room door and walk out through the courtyard with her. I'll rephrase that - Dahlia greeted her and walked out with Mulan hand-in-hand while I did back flips and (rather unseemly) air leaps in an attempt to capture some pix of the event. (I admit I'm a bit of wild thing when I want a picture.) And of course Dan can prove it as he was video taping my lunges. (Not pretty.) I stifled the urge to yell "Cut - can you two back up and walk out a little slower!" Bottom line is we have some lovely pictures of our princess meeting "the princesses" and thus the inspiration for this years birthday party.
And as an aside - it looks like the cut-off this month is March 6th so...........9 more days! That's all - just 9 wee little days. Sigh.
