Aaron's 4th B-day Party

Today we celebrated Aaron's 4th b-day. We had 15 kids over and we decorated gingerbread houses. The kids had a blast! I just can not believe my baby is going to be 4 on the 23rd. Here are some pictures :o)

First Book

My friend Marcey gave me our baby's first book. It is so sweet ...
"God bless me and God bless all the children in my own country" is a quote from it; the book takes you all over the world to say good night, even Africa :o)

Court Date Court Date!!!!!

We received an email this morning that we have a court date!  February 10th then we will travel about 3 weeks later.  Sometimes the court date does not go through the first time, but we are just going to think positive and have faith that everything will work out.  I just can't wait to get my hands on her.  I fall more and more in love with her everyday!  The song I have set on this blog "I Love You"  is a song that I thought of after each of our boys was born and now it makes me think of her.  The love you feel for your child even though we have just met is amazing ;O)  Thanks for the prayers and finger crossing just need it a little longer...

Great News

No not a court date but another fellow CHI family Angie and Joe recieved their referral for a sweet two month old baby boy!  They have been waiting for 19 months because they switched from the Viet Nam program after all the problems with the adoption process there started.  I am so ahppy to see this referral; it has been a long wait for them.  You can check out their blog to the left "love is spoken here".  Angie lets hope for some quick court dates!

No court date

So remember when I whined about the wait?  Well that was nothing compared to this one!  I see her face and I want to hold her and squeeze her and never let go...  Right now we wait and wait to hear if we will have a court date.  Our agency will be closing the 19th for two weeks; this is for the Christmas holiday.  I would really love to have a court date before that so that this Christmas could be even more merry!  
On another note the boys are doing awesome.  Zack is a little book worm; he loves just sitting by the fire and reading his Goosebumps books and he is also learning to make hats with me.  We are planning on donating them to the NICU at the local hospital.  Aaron is learning to add numbers and really working on his letters and sounds.  He does not love to write yet but if you let him color he will be busy for hours (can't leave any white on a page).  

Keep those prayers coming and those fingers and toes crossed that our little lady will be home soon!

Catch up

We had a great Thanksgiving- good friends, good food, good times!  Saturday we went on the Rail Runner to a Christmas festival in Belen it was lots of fun .  We went to a great cafe called The Rail Cafe; it is super cute and way worth the trip!  We are still awaiting our court date.  I am guessing it will most likely  be a couple more weeks before we hear anything.  A few families had court dates today that did not go through and they were rescheduled for January 15th.  I feel very sad for those families and hope that second time is the charm.
