Crazy December!

Our silk fundraiser is going well! This is Marc, Dagny, and Atlas in Minnesota enjoying theirs! Aren't they the most adorable pirates? ARGHHH! There is still time to get some for Christmas if you order soon! Click here for ordering info: ORDER SOME SILKS!

The America World families who received their referrals on October 3rd will be represented in court this Tuesday, December 11. We pray that things go well and that they will travel soon. The next group of families who received their referrals on October 19th are still waiting for a court date. We were so excited to hear that one of our families accepted a waiting sibling group of three, ages 9, 6, and 2 years!

We received news that we are getting a new family coordinator who will work full-time. She is from Ethiopia, so she speaks the language and will be able to add a lot to our experience. There are 130 families in the program now!! Another agency staff member is moving to Addis Ababa with her family to run the transition home.

Jeremy got his cast off Friday. He just began to straighten his arm on Sunday, but still won't use his fingers. We tease him that he has a "robot arm."

Saturday, we went to the IBM Christmas party, the Cary Jaycees Christmas parade, our church's production of the "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever," and kids eat FREE at Denny's!

Santa guessed that Marissa wanted a pony.

Santa didn't think that Jeremy's broken arm story was exciting enough so he added being chased by a bull!

We are trying to prepare for Christmas and the girls' birthdays. Yesterday's plan was to get the tree up, but we spent the day trying to arrange our living room so that we would have room for a tree! Oh well!
