Adoption Fundraiser 10-3-10

We had an amazing time at our adoption fundraiser on October 3. We had about 60 people show up for our Silent Auction and Progressive Dinner. The evening started out at House #1 with appetizers and over 20 items to bid on. We then went to House #2 for dinner out in the backyard. At House #3 we had dessert and coffee, a final chance to bid on items, and then we shared a little about our hearts for adoption, had a couple people share about their experience with adoption and also watched a short “Gotcha Day” video from someone who came home with their beautiful little girl from Ethiopia earlier this year. It was a wonderful event and we are filled with gratitude and love for the support, friendship and love from friends and family.

Christmas 2009

Our Christmas season was wonderful this year. December was actually a slow month for us and we so enjoyed it! We celebrated Advent daily with different readings, songs, lighting of candles, and time together as family. We had wonderful friends come over for Christmas Eve – went to our church service, then had a big meal, then sat by the fire and hung out. Christmas Day we spent as just the four of us and had a nice relaxing day. That evening and the next evening (Jay’s birthday) we got together with some friends to play Catan. And then my parents came to town December 30 – and we had a lttle time to open up some gifts with the kids.

New Years Eve 2008

We hosted our second annual New Years Eve party this year. Just 14 days before Jonah came. We kept wondering whether we’d have to cancel or not. We had a really great time – with games and fun and kids running around. This year people did not stay over (since Jonah was coming so soon), but we still had some people stay until 330am – so we could play a game of Settlers of Catan! Fun times…
