Fall Times

While there has not been a lot of action on the adoption front, we as a family have been very busy! Every weekend we have been very busy. We have finally started on Camden's big boy room. It took forever to get started because we couldn't decide on a bed cover that we both liked. :-) Sad, I know. Well my parents came up and my mom helped me paint his new room and my dad helped Randy build Camden's new bunk beds. The kid has it made, he has a queen/full bunk bed! We thought if it was made big, it would sleep more people when we have company in town, since we are not redoing the nursery. We took one of our guest rooms to turn into his room. The room is still in the works, but hopefully will be done in the next two weeks. We still have to stencil the walls, those are on their way, and Randy is putting new trim in the room. As we redo each room we are replacing the trim, going from a old burnt orange stained trim to a nice 5" white trim. It is awesome to paint a room with no trim in it!!!

We also have went to the local pumpkin patch and I found a new love, Apple Cider Donuts!!! WOW!!! Last weekend we traveled down to NW Arkansas for the annual craft shows that happen there, we have been going since I was like 10 years old. Major tradition there.

Plus, I get to start making all my "winter" foods. Homemade Chicken and noodles, chili, beans and cornbread, you get the picture!!! Foods that warm you from the inside out.

On the adoption front, things are slowly trudging along, there is a new referral about every week to two weeks, so things are moving, just slowly!!! We are getting there. Just have to keep waiting.

I hope everyone has a wonderful fall, see you soon!


  1. I pray you get your referral soon! I know that as soon as you do, life changes, and you don't have that time anymore to get things done. :) It's a great problem to have though!
