We're Parents!!!
Friday, November 30, 2007
Well thankfully the judge looked past the fact that the sheer scope of this event in our lives made us both sound like babbling idiots. And I'm a fairly good public speaker but unfortunately some alien took over my mind during the proceedings.

As Steve Jobs would say, just one more thing.

Our 10 days were waived!!! Which was beyond a surprise since they have rarely been waiving it here ever since accreditations. We are currently in total shock and when we come back down to earth we'll post more details.

    Congrats! We are very excited for you and your new family! That is very cool that your ten day waiting period was waived. You'll probably beat us home. When do you head to Moscow? We will be in Moscow from December 8th to the 14th.
