Meetings in Bloomington Illinois..

I had a meeting in Illinois on Monday which meant Gma did school pick for me...

Miss Vika decided not to take a spot at school.. hmmm... She said she "FORGOT" to take a nap. LOL Well about 5 minutes after leaving school she must have remembered to take a nap. :-)

Believe it or not.. we have scheduled our one year follow up appointment with our social worker... Praise God!!!

Prayers for the people of the blast in Moscow.

Amy and I traveled here each time we went to Moscow. We also used this airport when we left for home with Vika.

The airport blast

Friday, January 21, 2011 the STL

Well STL had about a foot... depending where you were.
So ready for Spring! :-)

Aunt Mel was super and let the kids come over while Amy and I were at work. Vika is super smart.. She does not like the snow! So instead of palying outside in the cold snow.. she and Brook got in a warm bath and played.

After picking up the kids from Aunt Mel's I went home and cleaned the driveway with the snow blower. Justin took over snow blower at the house and did a great job. The only trouble with that is I went from running the snow blower to running the shovel. LOL :-)

We got our driveway all cleaned up and then headed to Gma Fridley's for driveway clean up. I used to have tractor duty there, but times are changing. Another tradition handed down to the younger Fridley generation.

Todays forecast is SNOW... blech! 3 to 5 inches are forecast for the STL area.

Spent the weekend inside as much as possible.... :-)

Amy and I did Yoga twice this weekend. Man do I enjoy that.. For the guys out there who think Yoga is not a work out... try it...

A look back last year this time...

Vika & Justin are doing well... We are actually signed up for her 1 year at home review by our social worker.. Can you believe it? Praise God...

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!

We had a great Christmas & New Year.

The Disney trip (Walt Disney World & Disney Cruise) was outstanding!!! Vika & us enjoyed it all completely! Our cruise was a southern caribean and it was out standing.... Vika cried when we had to get off last week... We already have next years booked so she is counting down the days already.

Looking forward to 2011. 2010 was a very emotional year. Hoping for a smother but yet fulfilling year.
Thanks to Aunt Mel & EA we had da great new years eve...
