Ellas Big Day




Ellas big day in court was planned perfectly by all... all the correct papers were filled out & waiting. Mom, Dad, & girlies were adorable & fed & out the door in record time. We even arrived early enough to take a few pictures outside the courthouse... too bad it was the wrong courthouse. The lawyers assistant failed to tell us that the courthouse had changed since we last did this... thus, we arrived 2 sweaty, late, stressed (and perhaps swearing) parents & 2 tired, cranky sisters at the courthouse 30 minutes late. Dah... nothing like being late for a finalization hearing to convince the judge that you are suitable parents. Luckily, the girls won them over & everyone was very understanding. All's well that ends well... a phrase we have been reciting a lot lately...

Congratulations again! Sorry you had drama the morning of your big day and then the morning of your big big day (sealing). But yes, all did end well :)

Congrats! We know about court dates. We were in and out in 5 minutes. The judge didn't come down from his chair for the picture. We had to come home early from Utah during Christmas break for our court date and then it lasted all of 5 minutes. We were a little disappointed that we had to leave family early for a 5 minute court hearing, but Sophie is worth all the trouble.
