"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

My beauties!

Big A's new pair of glasses and Little A's new haircut... warranted mom to take new pics. I'm just posting one of them together. I have more on my website, and the whole set up on facebook.

Went in for a trim...

...came out with a totally different kid!

Before-





After-



So we went in to get a trim... his hair was very long and getting pretty uneven, so it was time for a trim. Normally I would just do this myself, but since he is a ring bearer in my sisters wedding at the end of the month, I thought we'd get it cut into a style. BIG MISTAKE! She asked what we wanted done, and I said 'just at trim, shape it up a little' and she cut it INTO A BOB! It was awful! So she tried again, deciding to cut it into layers. It was even worse. At that point, the only thing that would save it was cutting it all off.

Of course he's a-freakin-dorable, and while he was really upset about the hair being gone, he's diggin' the spikes. She put it in a faux hawk and it was so cute!
So we went in for a trim, came out with a new kid. :)

No new adoption news, really. Still hoping for letters being signed 'this week', but 'this week' has been the news for the last few months. I hope they are getting everyone back into their appropriate jobs again, and I hear paperwork is moving. Our dossier is complete... just still waiting for the darn FBI to get our I-171H back. Otherwise.... we are still waiting for news on what to do.
