"Starting off Strong" or "Update: Standby"

I know you're all eagerly awaiting blogs summing up 2013. I'm sure I'll have on by my personal New Years (next Thursday), but between working, the holidays, company, prepping for adoption, and things like that, it's all I can do to stay on top of life in general, much less throw in 'extras' like blogging.  To sum up the begining of the year, we took a trip, came home, built furniture, did paperwork, worked out, and slept. Yeah - that pretty much covers it.
The dogs are pretty happy to be out of the kennel and back on their own turf.

Clydas snoozing like a champ in my office - yeah - I'm a little jealous.

Anyway, recently we got to go on a last hurrah before kids - well, maybe. There have been other delays coming up in the adoption process. They are relatively minor, but they are impeeding our ability to get My Sailor finger printed. I can do a lot of things for him while he's gone, but I can't be his thumbs. So it's a race against the clock to see if we can get this done with his work schedule and before his next deployment.  We've turned in all that we can. Now we just have to wait for a few more peices of paper.
Like I said before, "So far no morning sickness, but the papercuts are terrible." While we were in Disneyland, I really wanted to do a "Waiting" photo shoot, but we couldn't nail down a photographer. Instead, we spent $8 at Micheals and bought a small black board with erasable crayons.

I hauled that board and around, and we jotted down a note to our future kids whenever we had the inclination. A few of them turned out great. I'm working on a slide show about it, all, but here's just a sneak preview...
Dislcaimer: Disney does NOT encourage the use of signs in their park. They were kind enough to allow us to use them once we explained our mission. In fact, Mickey GRABBED the sign from us to hold it himself! Best character interaction ever.
