Can you tell John is on vacation? I am being very bad about posting and I really am sorry. A sorry poster, that is!
First off and the biggest news is that I am the proud aunt of an adorable, new nephew. My brother, Cam and SIL, Melissa, are the proud parents of 8 year old Noah! This is the reason my brother is in the States right now, and not at home in Italy. He’s doing the finalization of Noah’s adoption with the court in Wise County, Texas where it all began.
Noah is a sweetheart who loves Spiderman, swimming, going to the beach, (They live a block or two from the Mediterranean!), riding his Green Machine, snowboarding and being a sweetheart, most of the time. He’s a doll! Check it out.
Here he is on his Green Machine, riding in a park at the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. (Note: two wheeling it on a three wheeler!)
Here he is with my brother, Cam and Melissa, the lovely wife.
Here, Melissa is outfitting him to snowboard.
In action! I believe this was his first time on a snowboard.
Last Christmas at my parents house looking at a new game.
I said his name, he turned around and I snapped the shot before he knew I even had a camera. (The date on the camera is wrong. It was last Christmas.
A friend of theirs in Italy got married…
Got married at a CASTLE! But did I get cool pics of the castle? NO! grumble, mumblestupidbrothermumble….
At some banquet or another with the lovely mother/my SIL, Melissa!
Snowboarding in the Alps. I can’t remember which ones.
Isn’t he adorable! Anyone need a dimple? He’s got plenty to spare! I couldn’t be more tickled and even though I already welcomed him to the family when they got him, I am so happy it’s official, now. Noah Camdon Wilde. I think it sounds great!

Well congratulations to you… and your brother, and wife, the whole family… Noah is a beautiful boy, and they look so happy!
Boarding, my 8 y.o. just started this past year (of course, after we fully outfitted him in ski equipment!)… but how cool is that living in italy and being able to board in the Alps!!!!

The Alps in the picture are in Austria just southeast of the German border near Garmisch. Thank you for the congrats! It’s nice for it (the adoption nightmare.. err.. “process”) to be over. The courtroom hearing lasted all of 5 minutes. That was the most expensive 5 minutes of my life considering the travel that needed to be made just to stand there and nod while the lawyer did the talking (also not cheap! haha).

Congratulations lovely family! I think that we should all go over to Italy and help you celebrate. Who is with me? Yes, yes I know you’re HERE. But let’s go THERE. Not that Texas isn’t scenic and everything …

I am totally with SSG – let’s go to Italy and celebrate! I KNOW you could use the break 🙂 SSG will even make lemon drops for us! I’d really like to check out that castle.
Congrats to you, Cam, Melissa and Noah! He is a beautiful boy, and it looks like he is also quite the athlete.
