I see I am way behind on blogging. We mailed off our application before Christmas and received our acceptance letter from our agency the day after Christmas. Then we went through the busy-ness of holidays. We really enjoyed having family at our house. It was amazing. I don't know why I did not come to this conclusion sooner. We have a huge table, big house, and LOTS of places for kids to play. The grown ups got to have a lot of good time together, while the kids watched movies and played(the highlight of our night was when the three little girls played dress up. lol BY themselves One very cute fat fairy, one with a dance outfit on backwards and a third with her dance suit inside out AND backwards!) So we may have to host more parties. I didn't worry about my kids making messes or breaking things. :-)
Since Christmas we have been trying to get school in the groove again.(not easy after a 4 week vacation) Also, I have been creative. I have been crocheting up a storm. I made two sweet sweaters/hat/bootie sets for friends who just had twin girls. I will try to get pictures up soon. I am hoping to sell some of those online. Also I am toying with the idea of an online boutique, "Sweet Stuff Shop" for baby's and little girl's cutsie stuff. I have crocheted lace trim onto some little girls bobby socks. They are turning out quite cute. I am going to use any sales for our adoption fund.
We were approved for the two specific girls, Joana (12) and Guadalupe (7) . It is so exciting! We received our packet in the mail from our homestudy local agency this week. We begin the update of our homestudy soon. There is so much to do. And the weird thing about it-- I want to start their quilts! lol I will get the hubby working on my pictures and crafts/or website this weekend. ahhh. . . must sleep. Tomorrow comes early.
