We're Back!

Phew! So much to do and so little time?!!

We flew out for a super quick trip, to Australia's tropical paradise, Queensland! We went to a wedding, had lunch with some fellow waiting parents, visited 2 theme parks, went to the movies, and did a spot of shopping!!! Ooooo, the SUN! It was still quite cool, up there, but the SUN was soooo toasty and warm!

OK, so the last few days have brought about several Congratulations!

Firstly, Congrat's to our good friends on their nuptials! (oops! I thought I had some photos here, but they're on Mr T's computer! will post shortly, they are so gorgeous!)

Secondly, HUGE hugs and congratulations to F&A at Imagine Alyzabeth An.... they no longer have to IMAGINE! She is absolutely adorable. We are so so happy for you guys!

Also, a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to all those families logged in on 26th & 27th Jan. 2006. We are two tiny days closer, in our quest for Mini... but I'm sure to those families logged in on 26th & 27th Jan, don't think they are so tiny!!! Maybe its my recent "quick trip" - but I'm not fased. We WILL see our Mini, one day.... Alyzabeth An is the most recent proof that miracles DO happen and dreams DO come true.

Got a huge week ahead of us. Our house goes to Auction on Sat. I've got 2 people looking at my car (to buy). I've got computer software training, wages to do, cleaning and washing to do, Doctor's appt, health check for insurance policy... plus a couple of coffee's with a couple of friends! Not to mention the kid's school and sporting activities!!!

Stop the world! It's spinning to fast!!!

Glad you had a safe and happy trip...shear any sheep?

Ahhh...there's that lovely face again. That kid has just done something to me..that sweet little face. She's not even my little one and I already look at her and feel like everything is worth the wait.

You didn't miss a thing. The name is under wraps. Just in the rare case it takes another 2.5 years I don't want to get sick of this one too and have it be a 'wait' name ;0) (No, I really don't think it will be 2.5 years more...if so, I am changing my name to "Looney")

Alyson and Ford have one very, very beautiful daughter- I am still beaming for them over here!

Glad you guys had a great trip and got to soak in some warm rays :)

Man, all you guys have us blushing over here reading the sweet, beautiful things you have to say about our little one.
I'll not pull your leg, we all know the Wait is a HUGE drag. And I'll tell you true. While we'll never forget the Wait, the Referral is a giant booster shot of HOPE, JOY and Love bundled up in one little girl we call Alyzabeth.
Thank you all for always being here with us and for us on our journey.
