Shes ONE!

Nora turned one yesterday. We had a nice little party here at home. She was a bit overtired and overwhelmed but I think she enjoyed it. She really liked making a mess of the cake.
We are so lucky to have this little girl in our lives. I have lots of pictures to share from this weekend.
Thursday was my birthday and I got the best present. A letter from the courthouse with a date for Nora's readoption. Its mostly just a formality as shes legally ours with a birth certificate from Guatemala with our last name. But we are changing her first name and giving her a middle name so this court date will do that along with giving her a Wisconsin issued birth certificate. Having that will just make things easier for her in the future.
Enjoy the photos.

Busy busy

As usual. Getting a few things ready for Noras birthday party. Ryan picked out her "theme" for plates and such. Just a small family gathering on her actual birthday. Aunt Cindy will be out of town so she gave her gifts already. The boys had to have her open one. She immediately found the button which makes the music turn on. Very cute, thanks Aunt Cindy.
Heres Nora playing with the boys in "Little People Town" in Evans room as we call it.
And pics I took of River and Canyon too. Hope everyone is going to enjoy the hot, HUMID Wisconsin weather it appears we will have this week.

Happy 4th of July!

And Happy Birthday to Jim! Im working all this week/weekend, Nora threw up a few times (all over daddy each time), Ry is slowly starting to get some sleep after having some insomnia for over a month. So we chose to lay low at home with just us 5 for the holiday. Jim did some fireworks and sparklers with the kids which they love.
Hope you had an enjoyable and SAFE weekend!
