The Natural

With an upcoming adoption trip to China towards the end of November, we are realizing that we need to get most, if not all, of our Christmas shopping done before we go. To that end, we have been on ebay, craigslist and other online sites trying to find some of this years requests. As with most parents, we sometimes disagree on what to buy. I will give you a short sample of our conversation this evening:

Me: "I'm really just trying to look our for our kids. I'm not trying to be a Scrooge."

Christi: (with a small smirk on her face) "Oh, it just comes naturally?"

Ah, the joys of parenthood:)



  1. It isn't often that I would choose to disagree with Christi - but you a scrooge? Nope - not even! :)

    love you guys - and hugs - aus and co.

  2. and this is Mrs Aus typing one handed while my two weeks confinement tick away, you guys continue to amaze and impress! Oh how blessed to be able to go back for two more!...some of us can only guys are living it!
    so blessed to know you as friends!
