Pre-Easter Fun!

Last weekend was our neighborhood egg hunt. We’ve never lived here at Easter before, so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. Egg hunts back in Kentucky kind of sucked–all the ones we went to were like frantic egg grabs, parents encouraging their kids to take as many eggs as possible, little kids crying, some kids with no eggs and other kids loaded down. After three years in a row of horrible egg hunt experiences I was leary of taking my...

Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!

I’m still trying to catch up on our vacation pictures and videos! We had such a great time. Did I mention that? On Tuesday of our vacation week we went to Universal Orlando to check out the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. SO EXCITING! I never thought I would be able to go there. Ever. A friend had connections who got us free Universal tickets. How awesome is that? My parents watched Ada and Henry back at the rental house so...


We’re Home! (Disney Videos!)

We made it back from Orlando yesterday afternoon. Henry was wild on the flight home. I think he was just exhausted from the entire week. He was also upset to leave my parents. :( We had a great week! The kids loved Disney World. The first day (Sunday) we went to Magic Kingdom. It was so crowded. Oh my gosh. We could barely even walk!! I thought this was supposed to be the off season! I expected it to be more...

New Glasses!

I have a lot to write, but I’m dead tired at the moment. But I wanted to go ahead and post this– Rosie got new glasses AND she got two teeth pulled yesterday! Before I fall asleep I also wanted to add a huge thank you for everyone who contributed to Vladik’s hosting fees (previous entry). I’ll post an updated grid soon. I’m working on uploading our vlog from today. We had a big surprise this afternoon! I’ll post it tomorrow....

The Facebook Page!

Hey look! We decided to go ahead and make a Facebook page for the blog and YouTube channel. I was afraid no one would like it. ;) The kids are having so much fun making vlogs. Even if not many people ever watch them, we’ll still have tons of cool videos for memories. But I’m really hoping we can use some revenue for hosting costs! Check out our page and like it if you’re on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/halfheardinthestillness Our latest video is...

DonutFace Vlog!

I’ve been thinking a lot about Vladik and Igor lately. We haven’t talked to Igor since he got back to Ukraine. He can use his roommate’s phone to Skype with us, but he hasn’t. I know better than to take it personally. Life is just unfair. I love that kid. Despite everything, I love him and I will never stop. I’ll never forget the way the top of his head smells, just like one of my own children. I still haven’t...

Keeping Busy.

I have some news about Igor. I’m not really sure what to say yet. I’m working on gathering my thoughts. In the mean time I’m keeping busy, see? The Toddler Life: Henry’s antics=Never a dull moment, ya’ll.

Henry’s Speech

Igor and Tyler are in Atlanta. Tyler will be home on Sunday. Igor flies out on Saturday afternoon. Henry has his two appointments for speech evaluation coming up. First there’s an evaluation meeting on the 27th. I’m not sure exactly what they will talk about at this meeting, but it’s at my house and it’s an hour long! The second appointment is on the 5th of February and it’s the actual evaluation. I’ve heard they don’t do much for speech articulation,...

Time for Goodbye

Like many other Americans, I bought a Powerball ticket yesterday. I don’t normally buy any kind of lottery tickets. Actually this is the first time I’ve ever purchased one. But I thought, What the heck, $2 for a Powerball ticket isn’t much.  Just in case a miracle should occur… I know exactly what I would do with that money. Happy days to all of my friends who are adopting and struggling to raise the funds! Your adoptions just became fully funded!!...
