So far behind....Part 2

Our good friend Eli's Daddy (Sorry Mike but that is your name from now on) came by the house bearing gifts for Norah and us. He brought Norah a super cool bell for her bike and a plate for the back that says "princess" on it. You know, in case she forgets. The adults were given the makings for a very nice Margarita Monday. Thanks again Eli's Daddy. You know us all to well. We can't wait to see more of you and the whole family for Halloween!

Norah asked for the bag that has her clothes that she was wearing on her adoption day. We keep the clear bags in plain view in her closet so that she can see them whenever she wants to. This is the first time that she wanted to actually try on her coat and wear it around the house for while. She didn't seem upset or sad. We looked at pictures from her adoption day and photos of her foster mother. She kept the coat on for about 2 hours then took it off. I think it may finally be sinking in that she is here to stay.

The craftiness continues around here. This would be the "Count".

Here is a pinball game made out of a box that was going to thrown in the trash at work, popsicle sticks, bottle caps, nails, marbles, a rubber band and clothespin. Yes, it really does work!
Have a good week!
