What a weekend

What a great, fun, busy weekend we had and its funny because I started and ended my weekend with my friend Donna! Friday night, we headed to Dan and Liz's house for this month's Adoption Option. She served an awesome BBQ and then we talked about attachment. We are hoping this is our last AO before China but you never know. We got plenty of information and advice and it was wonderful to spend time with this incredible community!!

Saturday was our couples baby shower put on my by the adoption community. Kim, Christy and Donna you rocked it out!!! Seriously though we had the best shower food I have ever had. I had brie for the first time and it was awesome. On another note, I had 2 Weight Watcher friends there and we decided to skip some points. We even had chocolate covered strawberries. So we had awesome food, fun games and we were showered with amazing gifts. Let me just tell you, this adventure wouldn't be the same without this community. I love them all and I know they love us. We have been giving clothes, advice, prayers and promises of help. Adoption friends, you really are our second family. Thanks for being so kind to us. You mean more to me than you will ever know and you have this soo much fun for us! We spent several hours afterwards with Kim and Michael, getting advice and wisdom for our upcoming trip to China. We both got lots of info!!!!!

Sunday, we slept late and missed the service but Michael joined me for nursery duty. We only had one child, but he was 13 months old and it was. I hope Michael will join me again for some baby time and practice. After church, we had lunch at a sit down Chinese restaurant with some friends and had a really good time. To finish the weekend, we headed out to WinterJam and got to hear Brandon Heath, Newsong, Hawk Nelson, Toby Mac and Tony Nolan!! Good times but a very full weekend. Bring on LynnMarie!!!
