Some pictures from Summer

Summer

Yes, we are still alive over here- thank you to those who have been checking up on us! :-)


It seems that life does not stand still and the routines of Fall have unfortunately begun. Which means I have less time to spend blogging about everything that's happening and even less for catching up on all of my bloggy friends. I can't believe it has been 3 weeks since I last posted here. Most have probably given up checking in by now!



Not sure where to start, as a lot has been happening over the past few weeks...



I think I'll backtrack a little bit first: (mostly because I wanted to share a few pictures!)

So here are a few snippets from the end of our summer.

As I already posted a few weeks ago, our Elliana turned one year old on the 16th of August. Because we had only been home a few short weeks we decided to not have a big party or anything that day. We actually made it to church for the first time in quite awhile, came home to take naps and then gave her the toy that we had picked out for her at the store. It was pretty un-eventful, but she was happy.

She loves this little baby we got her at Target for only a few bucks!

We had a few of our close family over for dessert the next night and she opened a few presents.

She thought Grandma was pretty funny!

We plan to celebrate her birthday in a little more traditional Korean style when she is dedicated at the end of November. We are so excited she will be dedicated on the day our church celebrates Adoption Sunday!

A few more fun pictures are from a swimming day we had out at Grandma's house with the cousins. Everyone was anxious for Elliana to try the pool and when we finally got in- she loved it and splashed all around. What a cutie she is in her little swimsuit...

The girls are so cute with her and love having a new baby girl cousin to play with!

Actually I think EVERYONE is excited to play with her!

This was the sweetest thing- to find them in her room like this snuggled in the rocking chair with Nathan reading her stories. He is such a good big brother! (they didn't even know I was taking the picture!)

What a Summer this has been for our family- definitely one we will NEVER forget!
