Introducing our budding family. We hope you will enjoy watching us grow... and everything else under the sun. ;)

For Those Familiar With Headless Chickens...

This week and next we will be running around town ragged. From getting our fingerprints taken twice (one with ink, the other one done digitally), to mailing forms, to going to the doctor 2 separate times each (not including the vet visits for the cats) we are beginning to look like chickens with their heads cut off.

Seen below are our happy faces at the Round Lake, IL Police Department on the bright and shiny cool Saturday morning. Oddly enough there wasn't a soul in the parking lot - but that didn't deter us from getting "printed". We were greeted, paid the fee, inked and we moved on our merry way in no time at all.

Today we spent the morning driving out to the YMCA in Crystal Lake, IL (exciting stuff huh? LOL) in search of our second venue for fingerprinting. Hayden enjoyed watching the swim team and the daycare while he waited. He is anxious to start his swimming lessons this summer at our own Y in the coming weeks. On top of swimming, soccer will also keep this mommy and son busy. He is one happy boy.

Lastly, we are excited to announce that we have nabbed the perfect gift for baby sister. It's called a Zoobie Pet. We chose a pink (of course!!!!) hippo and can't wait to give it to her when she comes home. Hayden is excited to say he helped purchase this "lovey" item for his little sister.
