Happy Second Familiversary!

Today marks the second anniversary of Matthew and Nicholas' adoption day. Yep, two years ago today we were in Vung Tau meeting our children for the first time. Although it's only been two years, it feels like we've been a family forever!

If you're new to the blog, please feel free to check out posts from our adoption blog here. The link will take you the archive for June 2007, and chronicles day to day life from Dan's perspective while we were in Vietnam. If you want to read the whole thing from start to finish, feel free to do so. We had an amazing time with our adoption process. The blog can be found at

We managed to get a couple of pictures this afternoon, so here you go! Oh, and one quick note about their shirts. We bought these while we were in Vietnam. I bought them a little big, so they'd have them to wear a couple of years down the road. They are large enough that hopefully they will get to wear them again next year! :-) The dragon on the shirt is embroidered, and while I don't remember what I paid for them, I promise you it wasn't more than $5 at the most, and the design is beautiful.

Happy to celebrate our Familiversary!

Starting to calm down a little bit...

Two videos of the boys using chopsticks for the first time. I bet they are better at using them than most people! :-)



Swimming Lessons, Spring 2009

Below are a few videos (just 5-7 seconds each) of Matthew at his swimming lessons last week.
