THE Birthday Party {happy 2nd birthday Zeke!}

So last week I got surprised with pictures from the party that was delivered to Zeke’s orphanage in China! Ann from Red Threads is amazing! We contacted her a couple of weeks before Zeke’s birthday once we realized there was no way we would be there by then–and she quickly helped us put together a birthday party for Zeke! She made sure he got his fancy 2nd birthday cake, a present from us and lots of pictures from his special day! Here are a few from the party!

Isn’t our sweet boy just the sweetest thing??!!! Oh I can’t WAIT to have him in our arms! We leave in just 9 days!!! FINALLY in the single digits of our count down!!! I hope to get our day by day itinerary this week from our agency. We’ve been busy getting things prepared, packed and all ready. Getting so excited here!!

The kids are officially out of school for the summer too–so this week ahead we will just be getting the house organized (okay–so the kids will be running around while I’m nesting like a crazy momma). We just finished up lots of sports this weekend–can’t wait to download those pictures of the trophy ceremonies and Loo’s recital! Frank woke us up on Saturday–he was dressed in full soccer uniform complete with cleats to shin guards at 7:30am…I looked over to the side of my bed to see him standing there and he said, “Mommy! It’s time to get up! Wake up mommy. TODAY is the day that I get my very first trophy!” This boy melts my heart! Will post those pics soon too!

Hope y’all all had a great weekend!

What perfect timing to be all done with school and sports before you get Zeke. Lots of bonding time now
