Then we met Daddy at Chick-Fil-A for lunch. After downing 7 chicken nuggets (plus fries) at dinner one night, we thought, "Hey, she must like chicken." And she seemed to enjoy it at lunch as well...
Lauren and Alex enjoyed some "cuddle time" in the booth. Actually, they didn't have a choice as we squeezed all 7 of us into a booth made for 4 :)
Lia LOVED opening her presents. She oohed and ahhed over everything. Wish I'd had the forsight to video it.

Today we celebrate the life of our beautiful little Lia. Though it's a second birthday for her, it's her first one with us. As we look at her life through these pictures, from her referral one year ago until now, we are amazed at how she's grown, and as always, we are amazed at what God has done.
Happy birthday, sweet girl!

Yay! I finally got video to upload...
Here is Lia playing Wii boxing with Daddy and Lauren. Keep in mind that unfortunately, with my timing, it's the first 2 minutes BEFORE the camera comes out that are usually the best video moments. However, I still think she's a cute little Lia Ali with her boxing moves.

There have been plenty of tears, grumpy attitudes, and exhausting days when simply finding the post office is an accomplishment. But all in all, we are doing well and getting adjusted to our new home.
One thing that has not been OK, though, is our internet service. I have not been able to upload video (not good) or multiple pictures at once (just plain wrong). So once we have corrected this tragedy, I will be sure to share some of our latest happenings, such as Lia getting knocked out while playing Wii boxing with Daddy.
The two angels pictured above are now in the middle of WW III over a heat register and a comb so my time has now come to an end.
Until next time...

She would take the big kids swimming in the afternoon while the little ones slept.
Thanks to everyone who made our move so much easier than it could have been.
We are now ready for visitors!
