Jan 2006

The second Annual McQuade Ski Trip to Austria was a huge success. The boys all were in ski school while I followed Jenn over every bumb on the mountain. I'll let you guess who our neice and nephew called slinky on skis. Great snow the first night after getting there! Super vacation. We kept thinking we'll need a room for 7 next year.

I know we've been saying "the paperwork is almost done" for quite some time, but we think the paperwork is REALLY almost done.

Dec 2005

We had a wonderful Christmas in Germany. We went to several Christmas markets and also caroled with our church and neighbors. We also did lots of sledding this year. We are finishing up the adoption paperwork and waiting on our clearances from Texas to come back. It seems like everything takes 12 times longer than everyone else doing this in the states! Try to explain a customs form to the secretary at the Chinese consulate in Houston over the phone! There goes another Express Mail packet, this time with a signed customs form. It's good to know that God's timing is perfect in everything and that He has known the day we'll meet Grace since before time began.
