I was talking to my dear friend Tracie the other day. She mentioned a blog that lists adoption fund raisers. I think this is great! When you go to buy your Chritmas gifts this year check out these great options first! Give wonderful gifts to your friends and families while helping bring children into families. It doesn't get any better than this.

My Favorite Time of the Year


John and Tracie are in the process of adopting a little boy named Aiden from Eastern Europe. Aiden has Down Syndrome and will be 3 in March. We are excited to welcome him into our family. The Loux’s are currently raising finances to help pay the cost of adoption. They are still in need of $18,000, and are trusting God for total provision.

If you would like to help support their adoption, they are currently having a fundraiser called ART FOR ADOPTION.
They are currently selling photographs and will be listing some original paintings and other artwork soon.
The link to their webstore is

You can read more about Aiden and their adoption at their blog, where they also have posted other ways that you can give to their adoption fund.

Good news! Havah slept 8 hours straight the following two nights. Maybe I should get you guys praying more often!

In other news, I got an end table from the thrift store that perfectly matches on of our coffee tables. I painted it black to match and now it's drying in the garage. Painting is a great way to spend Havah's nap time!

Havah and Gram

Almost every morning Havah wakes up to her fan club. I'm quite often at the gym, so it's the fun folks who she starts her day with. One of her very favorites is her Grammy. Grammy is so fun. She gets out the best toys, she snuggles, and when Havah is done snuggling or playing with toys Gram moves her onto the next thing.

Last night was pretty rough. Havah woke before her normal 10pm dream feed and wouldn't calm down, so I fed her and went to bed early. She woke again before 12, then again around 3, then 6, then 7:15. So...I'm tired. It was one of those nights where you're so tired you are thinking irrational things like..."God, why are you doing this to me?". I was thinking, do I need to bind evil? So I prayed and I felt better, but Havah just kept right on with the crying. Even now I'm typing with one hand because guess who only wants to sit in my lap.

Aren't these leaves lovely? Our tree stands above them all. When you drive down the street you could see the golden beautiful tree standing tall saying...look what I'm about to do to your neighbors yard. Pray that this mess doesn't blow into yours.

It was very beautiful and all in one day all those beautiful leaves landed in perfect piles ready to be bagged and carried off. Oh wait, that last part really didn't happen.
