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!

Thanksgiving Week

I've been off for the past week and have had so much to do! The backyard was an absolute jungle, so I've been storming through it machete in hand filling the green recycling bin to the brim. I've taken care of tying up loose ends for the business as well as cleaning up the house and rounding up all of Keira's clothes for donations. Yes, it's been a busy week! Even as busy as it has been, I still love to cook the Thanksgiving meal so we had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Kat and Matt who drove down from Studio City as well as Lorraine and Mike. It was great to get to spend the day with family. I was good this year and packed the majority of the leftovers in tupperwares for them to take home.

We headed down to Carlsbad to the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony they had at The Forum tonight. It is a great little annual event that they go all out for the kids. They had horse drawn carriage rides, crafts for the kids, cookies, brownies and mini peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Carolers, name it. It's a great way to kick off the Christmas Season.

Here is Keira by a little Koi pond they have. There is a small waterfall along with a reindeer display which is really cute. Keira loved looking at the fish.

Here we were watching Santa make his way down the red carpet! Santa looked like he was about 4'9" tall! He was a tiny guy!

Here were some of the carolers entertaining the crowds. They also had dancers and other singers.

Here are Dan and Keira in the crowd enjoying the show. We alternated with her on our shoulders, but after a while, she finally wanted to be on the ground so that she could dance.
We had a great time and are very excited about the Christmas Season!!!

Shorts and a t-shirt in November - I'm jealous!! I told Jason Ciara (Gaelic spelling) was coming for Thanksgiving; he was disappointed when he realized it wasn't Keira.

It's crazy, isn't it Paula? It really is unusually warm for this time of the year, but hey! I'll take it! :) When are you going to be heading our direction? We'd love to see you guys again!
