Well we made it home yesterday with no major issues. I cannot believe the snow!!! It didn't seem like much at O'Hare, but at our house it is crazy. It is almost like driving through a tunnel when you enter our neighborhood. So we missed the biggest blizzard ever!
Well, now we begin the fun (yes, there is sarcasm there) wait for our court date. Our coordinator said she planned to have us back in March, so I can hope, right? Considering our wait for Oscar was 6 months long, I am just really hoping we can at least cut that wait in half this time! We shall see!
On the plane yesterday I think that Joe and I settled on a name. We are going to think about it for a day or two, but I will let you know when we have it. We watched videos of her and Oscar on the plane home and I just can't get over how incredibly luck we are!
Our two days in Moscow were nice. Although we really just wanted to get home, I am glad we stayed. We toured the Kremlin and after shopping on Arbat street we attempted the subway. I am still amazed at the subway. I have been on lots of subways in major cities and never seen anything like this! We only went to 2 stops, but the amount of people and the beauty of the stations was incredible. It was also incredible that with every sign in Russian and no English anywhere we were able to get where we wanted to go. We also went to a grocery store on Tverskaya Street that was amazing. Huge chandeleirs and gold everywhere. By the way the strawberries in this store were about $14 for a small container.
Well I hear Oscar getting up so I better get going. Thanks for all the kind comments. We can't wait until we can post a picture.

  1. I am so glad you made it home safe and sound!! You are lucky that you missed that storm. I can't believe that you could even make it down the street, the photos of Lake Shore Drive were insane on the news. We are in Minnesota and we were grateful that we Dodged that storm. I agree with you I love the subway also, it is so ascetically pleasing. You are not alone on your wait for a court date. I can't wait to here what name you and Joe came up with!!
