We survived another Halloween...... Since it fell on a Saturday this year- we had a busy evening! We started off trick-or-treating a few neighbors and then we headed to our first party. The kids and Dad's trick-or-treated some more and then came back. Then off to our other party! By the time we got home, Harrison was laying on the floor in the bathroom, too tired to crawl into the tub! Sugar Crash! Thankfully we gained an hour Saturday night! Sunday afternoon we headed to Houston, to my Mom's shop. My Dad took the kids to the farm while my Mom and I decorated for Christmas! Yes, I said it- Christmas! In retail, most of the Open Houses are the first weekend in Nov.- So we had to get it ready! Which is ok with me, because I LOVE CHRISTMAS! My mom has a shoe store and in the back we have a small business with gifts and all kinds of home decor- needless to say, Christmas is busy and lots of fun!
On to more important things: We are now UN-Officially 7TH IN LINE on the unofficial list. There are so many families with our agency getting ready to travel this month and next to go pick up their precious children! Which means, the Transitional Home will have lots of room for new kids!!! It's going to be a great New year, I just know it!
One more thing.... We have signed up with a company, JUST LOVE COFFEE- They sell Fair Trade Coffee and they give adopting families approx. 30% of the proceeds to go toward costs of their adoptions. All our friends and family have to do is go to the website: www.justlovecoffee.com/thejays and buy great coffee! You can even buy Ethiopian coffee- You know Ethiopia is the original birthplace of coffee- it came from the Kaffa region. So we would love to have your support! More later, enjoy the pics!
