Timeless Tradition!

Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays! Costumes are being created and I will post pictures of them later this week. My Mom is sewing a costume for Carter (I will just say "The Great Pumpkin will arise"). Morgan and Jenson are at the age now where getting a costume means raiding the costume closet in the basement - so funny! We spent last night at my Mom's having a taco fest (eating as much mexican food as we could stuff in), splurging on apple crisp and carving pumpkins. I have posted some pictures of the process - enjoy!

Quick update: We are still awaiting a court date and yes, I am going crazy........

Service equals love.

Just a quick post about the gift of service and how is has touched and inspired our family recently. Our church had a service project last night for our family where women of our church gathered for a yummy dinner, information was presented on third world countries and how in need they are of service, and then we spent the rest of the evening tying 3 beautiful crib quilts for us to take to Sele Enat when we travel to pick up Grace. I am so touched by the outpouring of love and interest in this adoption and so appreciate the monetary donations that were given, as well as the baby items, toys and other items that have been so graciously donated. We will be proud to take them to Ethiopia with us and deliver them in the name our church family. Again I have been shown how much acts of service (both big and small) can touch a person and make them feel loved!
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you...

We are still awaiting a court date!
