The Coles have arrived!

29 December 2010 | by Bixby

They are here! After a very long trip which included several delays, they have arrived, seemingly unscathed (though very tired).  We are very excited about these next few weeks together. As to other news, we have been planning for several days to sit down and give you some updates of all that has been going […]

15 October 2010 | by Bixby

Zacharie Bixby and Adeline Cole were born on the same day shortly before Christmas 2009. However, they will have to wait until after Christmas this year to actually meet each other in person. Thanks to Skype technology, they have been able to get to know each other a little beforehand.
