Happy Famiversary!

Here we are at the airport on July 15, 2006

I have been a little reluctant to post since our camera has still not been replaced with a working one!!! But here goes... On July 15th we celebrated the 3 year anniversary of the day we became a family. Now technically, we became a family the day we saw their pictures and accepted the referral. We became a family again on June 14th when they went to court and took our last name and again on July 10th when we met them for the first time. But we call the 15th of July our Famiversary because that was the day our babies met their family. We had a big homecoming at the airport with all of our "family", related of not! What a beautiful sight they were. It is kind of bittersweet because last year on our Famiversary, our family gathered for African food (not too adventurous trust me) and of course our Pappy was here to celebrate too. It was our first Famiversary without him, and it just wasn't the same.
On a lighter note, we went out for Ethiopian food and Andrew and Annabelle loved it! Picture Andrew eating an entire injera by himself and Annabelle demolishing an entire serving of fosolia! It was quite a sight!!! Here are a few pics of these sweet babies 3 years ago. Enjoy!

Annabelle with Mimi, not too sure of the paparazzi!

Andrew with his grandpa. This is what his face looked like for the first 2 months he was home. We called it "shock and awe"

Andrew on the first night he slept in his crib

Annabelle is feeling like she is in the lap of luxury! This is the life!!!

Proud Americans on the day after they came home... Ready for a swim!
