What a surprise! When Paeton and I landed in St. Louis, MO on Sunday evening, Parker called to proudly share his news that he had successfully shot his first deer! Parker said,"He's about two year old buck with 5 1/2 points." What a welcome home present! Paeton and I were in NYC last week to see some broadway shows, we loved Little Mermaid and the Radio City Rockettes Christmas show was spectacular this year. We also saw Cirque Du Soleil's, WINTUCK at Madison Square Garden and really enjoyed this show as well. Paeton really enjoyed the sights from the Empire State Buildings observation deck. We would have liked to observe longer but it was about 20 degrees and so windy that night. We were tour guides for my dad's wife Connie and neice Michaela who really enjoyed their first trip to the Big Apple.
It was a slow week on the adoption front last week so it was nice to have the distraction of travel and so many fabulos places to shop! We even bought something for our ET baby, yes probably a little premature as we do not know for sure if we will adopt a boy or girl. I've felt strongly, early on that we would adopt a boy, and since we are now #5 on the wait list for a boy and still have not moved on the girl wait list(#13) it is looking like I was right. However I read all of the yahoo mail from last week and it looks like there will be movement on the baby girl list soon, so we really do not know. But we bought an adorable outfit at a darling boutique by one of our favorite restraunts, SERENDIPITY (YUM!) for our little boy it has a NYC fire engine scene on the front. So cute! If it so happens that we receive a referral for a little girl, it will make a fab gift!
Jamie and I dropped Bambi off at the frozen food locker and they will process the meat into summer sausage, jerky and ground meat for chili. Parker is very excited to share his harvest! It will take about a month to process so if you are in the neighborhood around Christmas come by for some cheese and sausage crackers and chili!
