Winter in WI...isn't it wonderful????

Our front yard and the HUGE snow pile

Christmas time

Pretty in Pink!

Well things have gotten back to "normal", if you can call it that! I feel like we're slowly getting caught up from everything life threw at us over the last 6 months. I applied for and received Maddie's social security number. It came in less than 2 weeks. I was impressed! I also applied for and received a court date to re-finalize her adoption, which completely irritates me that we have to do, since she's a US citizen in the eyes of the US government, but not in the eyes of Wisconsin...and if we want a WI birth certificate (and ultimately a US passport), we have this last big hoop (rubber stamping) to jump through. Why the US and state governments can't share information is beyond me!

Since Christmas, Maddie's been seriously ill 3 times. Pneumonia twice (once during Christmas, which wasn't pleasant!) and a virus that she's just getting over now. Other than that and the 2 feet of snow on the ground, life is pretty good.
