It's A GOOD THING That Our Judge Had Pants On!

We went to Superior Court today for Hannah and Sara's Readoption and Domestication today.

It was a lovely visit with Judge Stephen Kelley.  He was very friendly with our girls and he had much grace throughout the process.  Hannah asked him question after question and he answered them for her.  Then he listened while she told him stories about learning English.

But the icing on the cake occured right after he finalized all of the paperwork and we stood up to get pictures.  That's when Hannah noticed his robe.

Before we knew it, our spunky Hannah bent down, picked up the hem of his robe and peeked underneath, and then asked, "What's under that dress?" 

Judge Kelley was very kind and said, "I have on my suit under my robe."

Hannah's curiosity was satisfied and then we took pictures. 

Ben and I didn't quite know what to say, so we just smiled for the camera.

And It is Official Again--Our girls have been readopted and their foreign adoption has been domesticated.

AND I'm positive Judge Kelley will have something to share when he talks to his other Judge buddies!!!

Here is our picture from today.

It's Official--Again!

We will be doing a little celebrating tonight!  (Judge Kelley asked the girls what kind of food they wanted to eat and it looks like it will be Chinese Food!)

A special shout out to Jason and Joli who told us how to complete the redaoption ourselves and gave us the awesome example to follow.  It worked wonderfully!
