Yes we are still alive

It's been almost a month since I've blogged and for good reason. My laptop crashed...burned...discenigrated...had a melt-down, and so I've been without a computer for over a week now and IT'S KILLING ME SLOWLY!! Fortunately my blackberry gives me access to some of my email but going without internet access is causing me to have severe withdrawels because I use the internet for everything. Right now I'm in the cold basement working on our old dinosaur of a computer but hey...it's got internet (for now) so I'm happy! I have some new pictures to post of the girls so hopefully the 3 week time date they gave us for my laptop will be pushed up a bit. Will update soon!!

Welcome to the family Evelyn Claire

Sarah and Evelyn (Evy) Claire Bittner born January 2, 2009

Yesterday we took Sarah and Ansley to Babyland General Hospital and came home with a new baby. Sarah officially adopted Evelyn (Evy) Claire right out of the cabbage patch. It was very exciting (especially for me!!) to watch the nurses get her ready in the nursery and then hand her out to Sarah. She has blue eyes and a sprig of blonde curly hair. Both Sarah and I took the oath to be a good mommy and Nana KK and we took her home. As we entered the hospital where you check in as a guest, they had a display of original "Little People" from the early 80's and I could swear Joyce Anita was the one sitting under the window. It looked JUST LIKE HER!! I would like to think that maybe whoever found her sent her back to Babyland General and I hope that was her. Some of you know the story of Joyce Anita but for purposes of not making anyone feel guilty (mother) I won't share it here. ;-) We all had a great day and I am so excited Sarah was able to experience this. It has been on my list of things to do if I ever had a girl and fortunately I was blessed with two of them. Ansley will have her turn in a couple more years and I can't wait!

I'm telling myself the girl with the ponytails under the window is Joyce Anita!
