10 Year Adoption Anniversary

October marked 10 years since Zach's sisters were officially adopted! My cousins Emily and Grace took some pictures for us to commemorate the occasion. In the last 10 years, Chris and Kristi's family of 3 has increased five-fold. Almost biblical proportions! This weekend we will celebrate with a traditional Russian meal prepared by Elena and Luba. 

I was a little on the fence at first but eventually Emily convinced me to let her bring out her wind machine 

Shep found a look that worked for him and really committed to it.

Please take note of Reagan's blue bandaid below.
 That afternoon we ran through McDonald's to feed/treat the kids to somewhere they've never had before (ha) while exchanging money with the cashier, reagan yelled up from the back that he really needed us to ask her for a bandaid. Because he'd cut his finger. On a pocket knife. This is really just a PSA so you know if you are in a pinch you can also get bandaids from the McDonald's drive thru. We are also going to just skim over the pocket knife part of this story. Like WHY DO YOU HAVE ONE?
