I am THE happiest and blessed momma in the world!!! I have FOUR beautiful and smart (highly independent) adopted babies and the best husband a girl could ask for! I am passionate about international adoption as we've adopted from Russia, Korea, Ethiopia, and China. I love spending my time together as a family, shopping, decorating, hanging out with my girl friends, being outdoors and staying active. Family means everything to me and I couldn't be happier with life!
We had "ThanksMas" (aka Thanksgiving + Christmas) with Grandma Ro and the McCorquodale families this weekend. It was a lovely time and we really did it up good! Here's Grandma Ro with all the Great Grandkids!!!! Gabriella opening gifts..........................................

Ahnya was pooped and passed out at the party for a couple hours!
It was great seeing everyone and look forward to seeing everyone again soon. Happy Holidays!
We're back!!!!!!!!!!! And we all had the most amazing time at Disney World!!!!! The girls loved it again...and lil Ms. Ahnya had a magical time. Here the girls are going to the park for our first day!Gabriella and Jocelyn had appointments for the Bibbity Boppity Boutique to be transformed into royal princesses! Gabriella picked out the dress Rapulzel and had hair and make-up done by her Fairy Godmother! Jocelyn picked out the "Belle" dress and her Fairy Godmother did her hair and make-up. This is one of the top highlights of the trip. They had a wonderful time. Oh, Ahnya was "Tiana"! She kept saying "momma, I'm a princess!"After the Bibbity Boppity Boutique (which was right in the castle) we met Cinderella and then had lunch with 5 Disney Princesses! Cinderella, Ariel, Jasmine, Belle, and Sleeping Beauty joined us for lunch. This was the 2nd highlight of the week!!! Food was good and having lunch in THE Disney castle was breath taking!
Here's Ariel with the girls!..................and Sleeping Beauty getting a group hug from girlies!After lunch we did rides and character greetings! It was a long but fun day. We were at Disney World for 5 days.We went to SeaWorld for one day to break up the 8 days we were there! The girls and Ryan and I were able to FEED the dolphins and pet them! What a super memorable time.
Grandpa Bob and Grandma Peggy were wonderful to have with on the trip! Not only did they love it but they really got into the spirit of Disney!!! Peg stood in line, saved spots while Ryan and I ran here and there! They were life savers and it was wonderful to have 2 more extra sets of hands!!!!!!!!!
The girls loved LOVED the rides. I think we went on them all. Some we went on twice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The girls even went on Roller Coaster rides!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you look close you can see Gabriella and Grandpa Bob and Ryan and Jocelyn in second row of this water roller coaster ride!!!!
Always have to go on the Mad Tea Cup ride twice!
We went to all the parks except Epcot. The girls are just two young and we decided we'll save that for next time! We went to Animal Kingdom 1 day and HollyWood Studios the other day. We also had a day to relax and swim at the house we rented. Diseny was a hit, Ryan and I enjoyed our time, girls loved it so much and we are already looking forward to our next visit!
