LOA Baby!

This afternoon I went to open the door for my mom and there on my porch was a Fed-ex envelope! I was so excited and sure enough it was our LOA (final approval from China)! We waited 45 days which isn't too bad as the average wait is 52 days right now.

According to my calculations we will travel to China sometime in May! We have lots to do to get ready, I better get to work!

Our Valentines Project

This year is the first year that Zack had to make a valentines "box" for school. I asked him what he wanted to do and I pulled up a bunch of ideas on-line for him to see that we could maybe copy. I had a few boxes saved from Costco that would be perfect.

Well, he glanced at my "cute" ideas and firmly stated that he wanted to make R2D2. Um...really? We can't just paste some red and pink paper on a box and call it good? Apparently not.

So, I spent a whole day trying to find a garbage can in the shape of R2 and the rest of the supplies and then we had a super busy day scheduled so we had a total of like 3 hours to get this puppy done, the night before the big party.

I think it turned out pretty cute! I promise this was not one of those projects I took over and did. Zack actually did most of it. He was pleased with it and now he has a cool trash bin for his room. Win-win!

(Notice the shirt, he loves anything Star Wars)
