Ok it's finally time for that blog update... :)
It's hard to believe that little man's first visit to MINNESOTA has come and gone already!! 3 years of persistence and lots of paperwork and expenses we had an amazing trip to MN for Christmas!!
God is so good in HIS faithfulness!!
Check out a small glimpse into our visit to MN!!
We did so many great things and saw so many amazing people we couldn't possibly
fit it all in this blog!!
|We had a rough start with our carry on luggage being stolen from the back of the truck|
but we moved past it and enjoyed the rest of our trip! God knows.
Look this handsome dude so early in the morning ready to go!! EEKKK!! :)
