Happy Holidays!

Yes, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The judge did grant our appeal to adopt Moses and Matt and I both cried. I don't know what to say about the sealing. It seems to kind of trivialize it when I try to describe what it was like. They took me into the bride's room to get ready and to get changed after. When I was in there with my escort after the sealing I told her that it was much better than being a bride. I am so overjoyed to be the mother of Ava and Moses and that was an incredibly happy day.

We are glad to be back home, although it was great to see our families. And we are so excited for Christmas and Matt getting out of school! I decorated the house with the kids and Ava and I made fudge (it didn't turn out very well, it was my first time making it without my Mama). Now if Matt lives through his finals (he had taken 3 when I asked if he was halfway done and he said, "No, I have 11 more."), we'll be able to enjoy this Christmas season.

I will share pictures when I get them. Until then, here are a few Fall pictures my lovely friend Carissa took.
