October 24th was the boys’ fourth Gotcha Day anniversary!
The last week in October we traveled to Colorado so Christianna could meet our family out there. Wonderful stays were enjoyed with Chris’ Mom and brother Andy, as well as Uncle Doug & Aunt JoAnn. Coleen’s Uncle Jim & Aunt Cleo were also paid a visit, and we enjoyed a delicious dinner together. On the way home we spent a day touring Mt. Rushmore for the first time. There we met one of the original workers (not many left), which was quite an honor! We were there 10/31, 64 years to the day that work on the monument was stopped (technically not completed, as there were plans for more).
November brought Christianna’s final adoption decree from the court (praise!!), and our first snow.
