Weekend recap

We were able to go shopping with two cousins, my sister-in-law and her mother on Friday and had a great time! I found some good deals for Rory's summer wardrobe. My sister-in-law's mother treated the three cousins to their first Build-a-Bear experience, and they were so cute! They all had very specific ideas of what they wanted, and Rory promptly named her bunny "mommy."

Rory (and mommy) survived her first sleep-over this weekend. She and Camden stayed with Michael and Liz Saturday afternoon and night while Brian and I were able to have date night. We headed to Opry Mills and ate dinner at the Macaroni Grill, saw Confessions of a Shopaholic, and did a bit of shopping. Rory didn't do quite as well as I hoped, but she is fine. I think they wore Michael and Liz out!

I have a feeling the kids are going to be coming off a cousin high this week and it could possibly be a rough ride! We'll see - maybe they'll both surprise me and settle back into a regular routine. Today involves grocery shopping and I've got to finish up all the kid's clothes for the consignment sale drop-off tomorrow.

I am having trouble believing that one year ago today we FINALLY got our travel call for Rory. This was after a 4.5 month wait and alot of uncertainty regarding first our immigration paperwork and then with Rory's health. Our case worker from our agency called us about 8:30 on a Thursday evening to let us know she had just talked to not only the Korean agency, but also Rory's foster mother and she had a great update on Rory for us - the first we had received in those 4.5 months. It was amazing to finally know we were past the hardest part!
Stay tuned this week for lots of blog repeats from our week in Korea as well as the videos.

Yeah for shopping! Are we still on for Thursday? What consignment sale do you do? I have been looking for one. I have LOTS of tubs full of the kids clothes I need to get rid of.

Amazing how fast the time goes by!
Sounds like the kids have been having a great time and I'm sure Rory did fine and just think next time it will be even easier! =)

Glad you guys got to have a date night!

I loved reading about your trip to Korea.... so I can't wait for the recap!

I can't believe it's been a year since Rory's travel call! Wow! I've had a pretty down day waiting for Cindy to come home, so thanks for the reminder that it WILL happen and it will be great when it does. :)
