5 Months Many to Go??

Yes, we are celebrating 5 months being logged in today with CCAA. Where do we stand with the wait? Who knows. Some are saying the wait will go out to 2 years, some are saying the wait will stabalize at 14 - 15 months and yet some are saying the wait will stabalize at 10 - 12 months.

We are hoping to see her beautiful face next June or July and travel in August or September. Only time will tell


I saw this on the RQ site. It's a great quote about patience.

“Patience is a hard discipline. It is not just waiting until
something happens over which we have no control: the arrival of the bus, the end of the rain, the return of a friend, the resolution of a conflict. Patience is not waiting passively until someone else does something. Patience asks us to live the moment to the fullest, to be completely present to the moment, to taste the here and now, to be where we are. When we are impatient, we try to get away from where
we are. We behave as if the real thing will happen tomorrow, later, and somewhere else. Let’s be patient and trust that the treasure we look for is hidden in the ground on which we stand.” –Henri J.M.Nouwen

Camping Part II

I got to thinking about T's visitors at the campground last weekend. I wonder if that is the day our daughter was born. It very well could be!! I got goose bumps when T was telling me about his visitors and he was so excited about it. Maybe...

Foto Challenge

Double Happiness has a new challenge - Any photo with a pumpkin. Here are some pictures I took this past weekend for the pumpkin carving contest. You can see the reaction of H when we try to get her to put her hand inside the pumpkin!! She wanted nothing to do with it!

Weekend Camping

We went camping last weekend and had a great time. We belong to a private campground that has places to go to up and down the east coast. The one nearest us closes for the winter and last weekend was it for them. Yes, it was cold but we kept warm by the fire! There were a ton of activites for everyone to do during the day including a hayride and a haunted house!! There were also a costume contest and pumpkin carving contest.

While we brought the kids to the hayride and haunted house my husband decided to stay and watch the fire. He said some people came into the site and started talking to him. They even went as far as going and sitting by the fire and putting their youngest one in D's stroller. The guy of the group was filling in for the DJ for the evening dance. The family had never been to this campground, was out exploring, and needed a rest. The catch to all this? They were from China! Big T told me about it when we got back and said he is now a believer of signs! He also said that if he ignored that one then God would probably come down here himself and bitch slap him!

Anyway, here are some pictures, enjoy!!

The Lion King

If you get the chance go see it!! What a remarkable show. The costumes were gorgeous, the singing beautiful, and the props were amazing. We weren't allowed to take pictures so these aren't mine. One of the guys I graduated from highschool with is still working as the assistant lightning director for the world wide tour of the Lion King. I was hoping he was here but no luck. I would have loved to talk to him and maybe get back stage.

We are going camping this weekend with our neighbors. We belong to a private campgound called Outdoor World. They have campgounds up and down the east coast. The one we go to shuts down for the winter and the last camping date is this weekend. They have trick-or-treating, a haunted house, hay rides, and the requisite DJ dance on Saturday night. It should be a ton of fun!!
