Wow, times flies.  I can't believe I haven't blogged in 7 months.  I guess I'm not totally giving it up but slowing down... a LOT!
The kids are doing great and wow, do they keep us busy!  Cooper is now 6 and Kara is at the end of 4 - They are both absolutely thriving, learning new things everyday and growing like weeds!
They are both amazing little beings - so smart, witty, athletic, beautiful - we are so blessed.

Anybody have any questions?  I promise to answer!

Here are some recent pics:

Wow they have changed sooo much. They are beautiful. I was really shocked to see an update but happy to see you remember blogger world. My Kotlas girl (Dec 2008) is doing great also.

Glad the kids are doing so well. THey have changed soooo much. Its nice to see an update and it took me by surprise, thought you were done with the blog. Our Kotlas girl (Dec 2008) is also doing well. We ended up adopting again through a different agency about 1 1/2 ago. Wish I had the patience like you to actually do a blog of our adoptions! How is school going for the two of them?
