Well...I haven't had time to blog in awhile, because we have been putting together our paperwork for our agency and the homestudy.  It took place tonight.  3 hours, a lot of questions, a lot of paperwork and a FANTASTIC social worker!!!  Jill Kelly is AWESOME!  We are so glad the initial meeting is over!  We are really in the process and I feel like we are accomplishing a lot of stuff right now!

YEAH!  Thanks to everyone who has helped us thus far in the process.  I will post more soon!  I am leaving for Gaylord, MI.

Have a Fun Night!

Crack Me Up!

So...Jack didn't want to take a nap today, so I decided to let him lay on Uncle John's bed and watch cartoons until he fell asleep.  My plan worked, he fell asleep!  But when I didn't hear him talking anymore, I went to check on him and he was asleep, and HANGING HALF OFF THE BED!!!!  His feet were at least 3 inches off the ground!  I cracked up!  How could he have fallen asleep like that?  Anyways, thought it was worth sharing:)

The adoption fundraiser is coming along well!  I picked out/designed invitations for it today!  I have the venue reserved, menu made out.  It consists of two types of food...Asian Cuisine and American Fare.  Things are coming together quite well for the fundraiser.  I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Have a Great Night!

Pix from our family photos last week!  It was a crazy night of photos...Jack was in a funk!  Imagine that my kiddo doesn't want to behave:)

The pix is really cute, thanks to Jessica Holloway with Captured Blessings.

Adoption Update

So...we are filling out the formal application for AIAA.  They have accepted our pre-application and we are looking forward to finally feeling like the process is moving forward!  

SAVE THE DATE, NOVEMBER 15th, 2008!!!!!

Did I mention to hold the date November 15th?????!!!!?????  We are going to host a fundraiser, with a silent auction and after party downtown.  I also scored an awesome deal with the Hilton Garden Inn for hotel rooms if anyone wants to make a night of it!  I'm telling you now...SAVE THE DATE!

We are scheduling our homestudy to hopefully have it completed by the end of the month with Jill Atterbury Kelly!  YEAH!  I will keep everyone posted on how that goes.

We also had family photos taken by Jessica Holloway, Captured Blessings Photography, last night and I think they will turn out great!!!  Jack got restless after awhile, but he's only two...guess it comes with the territory:)  Check out Jessica's website for some of her phototgraphy. She rocks!! Thx Jess!

One more time....SAVE THE DATE, NOVEMBER 15th....
