Anna's Turns 2!!

We had a very special weekend last week celebrating Anna's 2nd birthday, her U.S. Re-Adoption court day, and her and Brooks dedication at church. We were so glad we were able to pack it all into one weekend so our parents could fly in to celebrate with us!

Thank you to everyone who helped make the weekend so special. Anna enjoyed all the attention and we were so happy to be able to celebrate her birthday for the first time!

Here are some pictures from all the festivities:

Anna's adoption was finalized in Russia, however, we opted to have her "re-adopted" in the U.S. so she can receive a U.S. birth certificate. Both of our parents came, Amy's cousin Shanna and her kids Aiden and Marina, and our friends Keith and Shelley Brooks with their children. Thank you all for joining us, it was a MUCH easier process than the questions we had to answer in Russia:-)

The first of many birthday celebrations with our Anna!

Fun Party!
