Merry Christmas all.....

Yes, I realise it's been awhile since I posted. I guess the last post we were waiting to hear if we passed court in Ethiopia.

Well, as it turned out we didn't actually have a court date on the 5th like we thought. The birth mother broke her leg and was unable to get to court. So we got rescheduled for Dec 18th, but still haven't heard if we passed. You will all find out once we know.

We are off to Mexico tomorrow and will be there until the New Year. A great place to be when you are trying to keep your mind off of if we passed court or not. I felt like I wasted a good part of my week when we were waiting to find out if we passed or not, waiting by the phone and checking email. So I will be warming up my bones, swimming and eating salsa rather than racing to the phone each time it rings!

Want to shout out to all who I have connected with thru blogging or other sources of social networking. You guys are a super outlet and understand what's going on. Thanks for taking the time to write your own posts to tell what you are going thru. You guys are real gems.

To all my in IRL(in real life) friends, thanks for supporting us and keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.

Here's to an awesome 2010. Looking forward to what this year holds. Peace out.

Johnny Cash is comin' to town.....

Remember this post? (and don't just pretend to read it...actually read it!) It is such a good way to remember about the true meaning of Christmas.

Once again, I am in a grumpy post CAFAC email. It turns out we may not find out until NEXT week if we passed court or not. BOOOOOO.

As those of you who read my link to my old post saw, it was suppose to be my sister's turn to go to the annual Christmas party. But since she is working, it looks like I will be going in her place!

Good thing, because I need a good dance with Malcom to cheer me up. Except this year, Johnny Cash is making an appearance! What's your favorite Johnny Cash song? Ring of Fire? Get Rhythm? Walk the Line? I will update you on my favorite Johnny song after the big party.

Dec 5th, 2009

Dec 5th. Has almost come and gone....

I actually went about an hour into the day without thinking about Nev's court date.

J had a hockey game and we slept in a bit and had to run around the house like crazy trying to get J and Ad ready for the game! Here is a picture of our hockey star in action!

We then came home and put up the Christmas tree. J has been looking forward to it for awhile now, and Ad was gone for 5 nights so this was a good family time. It's the first year we have a "big" tree and it was fun decorating it. The past um.......11 years we had a 4 foot tree that my mom picked up at Salvation Arm, and it did the trick. It suited our houses because they were smaller and we didn't have a lot of room for a large tree. Now that we are on the farm and have lots of room we bought a 8 foot pre-lit tree. Since Jay has been born we have had a little tree ball that had a picture of her as an infant. This year we hung a photo frame of NEVAEH!! It was so special.

We won't find out for a few more days if we passed or not. I will be trying to stay as busy as possible without wearing myself down! I will give you guys an update once we find out our result.

P.S J scored a goal as well today. What a great day. Hope it is made even a better day by finding out that we passed!
