We planned a special dinner for Isabella on Friday to celebrate the end of her second year with us. She's learned so much the past two years that we wanted to make sure we could reflect on the awesome gift we've received - her.
So Kevin, Isabella, Grandmas Sue and Mary and Papas Al and Steve and I all went to dinner at Dontino's - our family's favorite Italian spot (Kevin and I had our wedding rehearsal dinner there.).
After dinner we went back to our house for what else, but Dairy Queen ice cream cake and a few small presents to spoil the princess with.
I'll fill you in on the rest of the weekend later - now it's off to rest because I'm sick yet again. Isabella is finally getting over her double ear infection and bladder infection so of course I get strep throat. Ugh!

We would be meeting our daughter, in person, for the very first time in less than 24 hours. Not to leave and return months later, but to bring her home - forever!
These two years have FLOWN by! We've lived so much joy because this little lady joined our lives. We've made forever friends who love their own Guat-tots. We've shared our love with a child who may not have had a home.
As Kevin and I reflect on what tonight means to us, please say a prayer as we celebrate tomorrow - two years as our forever family!

"Smile for Daddy!"
"Smile for Mommy!"
"This is good sausage. I hope everyone else is enjoying breakfast."
"Hi, Mr. Bunny."
"Would you like one of my cookies?"
Time for the hunt. Wait....
"I'm getting the eggs!"
"Mom says I should share with the babies."
"Check out this hawk!"
"Can I touch it?"
"This is really soft."
