San Francisco

It was a cold, rainy day in San Francisco, but we had a great time!  Andrew flew into SFO, but has never been to the city.

                           Seeing the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time.
                                           Going down Lombard Street.
                                         Our view at lunch of Alcatraz.
                                Checking out all the decorations at Pier 39.

                                         Watching the Sea Lions.

                                  Union Square at night when it is lit up.
If you haven't been to Union Square during the holidays, every window at Macy's has a giant wreath in it all lit up.  It is so beautiful!
Christmas music was playing from the outdoor ice rink, the rain was falling and the hot chocolate tasted even better!

So thankful and blessed this holiday season to be surrounded by my family.  Remembering and praying for those precious families in Newtown, Connecticut who lost their beautiful children this last week. I can't imagine the heartache they are feeling. Thankful for my Savior who came into this fallen world.


  1. Thank you for sharing! I love following your blog. Tell Andrew hi from Ukraine =)

  2. So much fun and sweet beauty all through the blog.. Im catching up. ;) love all the first. What wonderful blessings not just for Andrew but for all your family.

    God bless


  3. I love your blog and keeping up with Andrew's life. I prayed for him to find a family for a long time, it's so neat watching him learn what it means to be a part of a family. Looks like you all are having so much fun! I love San Francisco, especially during the holidays! One quick question though, and you may have answered it already and I just missed it. Why doesn't Nathan join you on all of your wonderful adventures? I can understand leaving the babies behind to focus on your big kids, but I never see Nathan in any pictures? Hope this doesn't come across as rude, I am just curious and I assume that there is a reason. Thanks and hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your sweet family!

    1. Actually the babies and Nathan do join us a lot. Nathan gets extremely overstimulated. We keep him in a good routine at home as much as possible. Otherwise he will rage. He does not do the things that will freak him out. That helps him and is best for the whole family all the way around.
