ANCIENT CHINESE BELIEF: When a child is born invisible red threads extend from the child's spirit and connect to all the significant people who will be part of the child's life. As the child grows, the threads shorten, drawing closer those people who are destined to be together.
JOHANNA'S FAVORITE VIDEO!

Poor Johanna had to share her birthday with moving day. But she had a good day anyway and was very excited about her new Princess bike. It's so great at our new place having this huge shop. It has a huge fireplace so we can warm it up and the kids can ride bikes, golf or whatever on cold winter days.

The holidays have been crazy busy for us, so I have not kept up with my posts! My parents and aunt & uncle came up here for Thanksgiving, which was lots of fun. Then Anthony came home for a two week Christmas break, so we spent Christmas with my family. And in the middle of all of this we had Johanna's 12 mo post-adoption visit. Now we can stop and breath. Even though my house looks like it exploded and we are playing catch up with our schooling. Anyway, this year we got to go out to the forest and cut down our own Christmas tree! That was lots of fun. Here are a few pics.
Also, a quick Johanna update..we had an appointment with her surgeon while we were in Ca. She is going to have another surgery this spring to try to close up the hole in her palate a little more, remove scar tissue from lip and she gets fat injections to try to even out her lip a bit.
