New Look/ New Blog

Well I finally did it! I've wanted to make a family blog that would focus on our whole family and the many different aspects of our life, instead of just our adoption process. So this is it......it isn't exactly what I was hoping to do as far as the design.... but I have had this blog and name created since last August when we received our referral. It's been sitting and waiting for me to get back from Russia, and get settled. I think we are pretty settled, so I guess now is the time...

If you came over here from our adoption blog "Welcome!" Glad you made it! If you are some of my IRL friends then you should probably get the blog title and theme.... :-) I had been trying to find a photo to go with the fish theme and found several that The King Fish took of Shamu at Sea World. How appropriate! It matched the background too.... lol! Naturally it won't stay like this forever because I like change far too much!

I'm excited to do a short post on each member of my family... and why they were named as such. I got the idea for this from my blog friend Flamingo Mama, who really could have been a IRL friend had we not moved from the town where she lives. My friend Kristine also inspired me with her new blog and her children's nicknames.

I've added music to this blog as well.... even though I always seem to mute it when I am reading or writing. These are some of my "Happy songs" that get my toes a tappin', my feet a wigglin' or my hips a shakin'!! (Not too much or trust me there could be a trip to the local ER for some kind of dislocation.... that or someone called in some seismic activity)....

So anyhoo.... I could go on and on.... but I'll stop for now... and just say "Yay! Glad you're here!"

Howdy! Made the switch over to your new blog. I understand the reason behind it, we did the same thing. Looking forward to following you on the new blog.

Love the new family blog! It's a marvolous idea and something I should attempt to do too. I especially enjoyed reading about everyone in your family. Your boys and mine have very similar personality traits! I sure wish you lived closer.
