One thing I haven't mentioned on my blog yet is that we have been building an addition onto our house so that we could adopt. We've done all the work ourselves, so it's taken a looooooong time! I use the word "we" very loosely since John does nearly all the work & I just admire, chose colors etc. That picture of me on the ladder is me "pretending" to work I think. The addition gives us one more bedroom as well as a larger laundry room/mud room and a walk-in pantry. Anyhow, we are getting much closer to being all finished & I am so excited!
