New Nephew

Jake & Beka Dorr

I (Karen) have been very fortunate to have 2 best friends that have known me from the beginning of time: Alison & Beka Kiker. Our parents met in Lamaze class when both of our mommas were preggers with twins. Virtually every childhood memory I have somehow involves the three of us. We were so inseparable that my dad referred to us collectively as KarAlaBek.

Now we're all grown up (sort of), and Beka and Jake (her hubby) are adopting a baby boy from Ethiopia! They've even created an entire blog so that we can be a part of their journey. I'm beyond excited for them; I know that they're going to be WONDERFUL parents. Please check out their blog and give them money and prayers if they ask for them. :)

Thanks for the shout out, my bff.

I hope this blog includes stories from our childhood.

Episode one: Playing hide the boot.

Episode two: Meeting Clyde Drexler

Episode three: The family station wagon

That could be the first of several Kissilipper trilogies.

Hi Karen! Welcome to the land of blogging! For some reason, I remember singing a song about SWEEPING with you back in the day at Tadmor. Member the lyrics? I don't, but I know they were touching and beautiful.
