This, That and Another Thing
The last few days have been filled with trips to Disneyland, basketball games, searching for a wallpaper pattern for Samantha's bedroom and eating meals out way to many times each day. We have gone to Coco's, Chinese, In and Out Burger and ordered Pizza. Twice.

Not exactly a good schedule for a gal who is trying to eat healthy and lose a little weight.

I'm planning on staying home tomorrow and doing laundry and trying to get the house put back in order. I'm also going to plan a few healthy meals. Tonight I was so rushed we had scrambled eggs and pancakes. The kids seemed to like it.

I went over to the High School today and officially un-enrolled Tyler. He is suppose to start on Tuesday of next week at his new High School. I have been praying daily that it will be a good move for him and that he will like it. I think I may be more nervous about the whole thing than he is.

Our agency received 3 referrals today, all little boys. That puts us at #68 on the overall list. At least we are making progress.

We made the decision a few days ago to increase the age range of the children we are asking to adopt. We had originally wanted to adopt an older child but our agency did not want us to disrupt birth order. Paige will be six in July so we changed our request from 0-4 to 0-6 years. I am much happier with this request. I really felt God leading us to do this and I am so happy we have done it. I mailed the paperwork off this morning to our home study agency and they are going to write an addendum to our home study approving us for this expanded age range. It should only take about a week to get all the paper work done.

I am really excited about this change.

Here is a picture of what greeted us Sunday morning as we left for church. Seems to be the handy work of a few teenage girls.

They disposed of their empty toilet paper rolls in an artistic way on the boys truck.

Aww just gotta love them.

I was browsing through your blog, enjoying your posts, when I was very surprised to see a post about our family. Thank you so much for your prayers and support.

We are sending in our application tomorrow to adopt two children from Ethiopia! I am very excited and very scared at the same time.

The TPing post is hilarious. Luckily we live in the desert and don't have many trees here.

Hurrah about the peace you feel with your decision on the age range.

Once, some kids tried to tp our house. However, the tp soon got caught high up in the tree and it was barely noticeable! We almost felt a little let down. Almost!

The three older kids cleaned up the yard. However, there is still some TP way up in the trees. We need a strong wind to come along and help us out a little with that one.

Did you actaully think I would pick it up? You should know me better than that by now Brenda. lol

What a mess! I especially liked the empty rolls on the antenna. Very clever. Very clever indeed.
