The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

Labor Day!

What better way is there to spend Labor Day than at your bosses house for a barbecue- especially when it's a surprise to your boss that you're coming! lol

Dan has a great crew at Budget and he truly loves working with all of them. They all have fantastic chemistry and work so well together. He always has funny stories to tell me of things that happened throughout the day. He can always depend on them to get things done---and at the same time making it fun as well. They are all such a riot and I do sometimes miss going in to work with them on my days off from my regular job although I think now everyone is so much more advanced than I am in doing everything on the computers that I would probably be banished outside to wash cars since I would just slow everyone else down now! Plus being a full time mom to Keira was a big enough job on it's own :).

Sandy called me a few days before Labor Day asking if everyone from Budget could come over for a barbecue at our house. Of course! We'd love having everyone over! The trick was that it was supposed to be a surprise for Dan. It's been a long time since Dan has had a 3 day weekend, so keeping him in on Labor Day without telling him why was going to be tough. Fortunately, the heat made it much easier for him to want to stay in without too much of a fight!

They brought a ton of food and we had a ton as we did ALOT of eating that day!
Luis and Mabel brought their daughter Armanie. She is only a couple of days younger than Keira so it was great to have her over for Keira to play with. At first, they were a little competitive with each other (Keira was especially for Luis' attention-who she was just madly in love with!) but as time went on, they were sharing not only toys, but trading shoes. Keira came running out with Armanie's sandals and Armanie came running out with Keira's Crocs. It was very cute.

We had a great time and really had fun with everyone here...thanks to you all for making it such a great Labor Day!

Speaking of Labor... I go back to work tomorrow. Wow! Time really flies! I'll see all of you guys back at work :)

Here is Keira with Luis- who by the way, was able to get her to do the impossible--wear a hat for an extended period of time!
