February?

We are having crazy, beautiful weather here! The kids are getting a lot more outside time since they don't have to bundle up. Tomorrow, Tuesday, it is supposed to be over 70! However, it may rain, but that is OK since we are so far behind in our rainfall. (LOOK! Jeremy is on his scooter!)

I found out today that 3 families got referrals last week bringing the total for January up to 4! Our AWAA program director says that more are on the way for February. We really don't think that we'll hear anything this month since there are so many still ahead of us. We are hopeful to hear good news about the grant for which we applied from Shoahannah's Hope. Please, pray that we get a BIG one!



Here are the "gnomes" that I have been knitting since -I really don't remember! I wanted to make some brown and tan dolls for the little ones that are coming from Ethiopia. I hope to have one for each of the children in our travel group and some extra to leave at the transition home with the little ones there. I bought some lavender and red yarn yesterday to make some more!!

Happy 4th Birthday, Bennybennybenben!

Susan,
These are ADORABLE! My grandma makes blankets for the hospital and shelters--I'm going to pass the site you mentioned-these little guys may be a nice change of pace! Thanks for sharing!
