Well done.

We've had a great day here, and most of it had very little to do with getting anything done. We just enjoyed the day. The kids and I went out to lunch and wandered around the mall, talking about Legos and American Girl Dolls and everything in between. They played outside in the great snow we got yesterday until the couldn't take the cold anymore. :)

Steve and I went out for Thai tonight, while the kids played with Meghan, their very favorite sitter (who was available with one days notice - thanks dear friend!). And we bought a new shovel! (Do we know how to spend a date or what!!?) Really...we were in desperate need of a better shovel. I'd say "bring on the snow!" but we have had QUITE enough for a while! ;) I love doing anything with Steve - he is great company.

Tonight, the house is quiet. I'm feeling very much at peace. I have the pictures of Levi that I have been carrying around in my purse for the last 3 months. Tonight is the last night I have to look at those photos to know what my son looks like. Tomorrow, all the questions about how much he has grown in 3 months will be answered. I'll get to see for myself what his personality is like. I'll take my OWN pictures and the boy in the photographs that I carry around will no longer be a projection of my future, but a picture of my present. January 20th is bound to be a historical day for the United States of America. But for our family, it will surely be a day we remember forever. Thanks for being faithful to follow along this part of our journey. I've loved living it with you. I guess we'll see you on the other side!
