Fun times at the Patch

Last weekend we went to the Sauvie Island pumpkin patch. We had a great day with family and the weather was beautiful. Here are a few pictures from the day..

Moving Forward

As many of you know we had a difficult situation to get through with our home study. After several weeks of riding the fence of the unknown, we now have been told we can move forward. We are thrilled and could not be happier. We do however need to change agencies. We are now going through Children's Home Society and feel like this is a great agency with lots of Ethiopian adoption experience. We should have our completed home study in our hands in about 3 weeks.

Thanks to everyone for all your prayers during those stressful weeks.

What is your favorite season?

...mine is FALL! After reading Tara's blog and her post about fall, I was inspired to get pictures of the beautiful trees I drive past every morning(thanks Rhonda). I love the crisp foggy air and the amazingly beautiful scenery we have in Oregon. I am constantly in awe of God's creation. Some of my favorite things about fall are the colors, smells and food. If you have ever been to my home you would know quickly that my house coordinates with fall, I love it! I can walk into any store during this season and find something cute for my home. I love being in the house, cozy, with the fireplace on and my favorite piano hymns CD playing . The greatest gift of fall is the peace it brings to my home. I love Fall!
