New Look

Hey Aunt Cheryl,

Just wanted to ask if you liked the new look of the blog. :-) It's rather Barbie-esque, but fitting for a 2 y/o little one. Just let me know what you think.

Take care! See you in a few days!!

Poem from the late august DTC group

I wanted to post a poem that came from one of my Yahoo groups. :-)

May you be safe and sleep soundly through the night,
May you be safe as you wake to the morning's light.
May you feel my love from so far away,
May it comfort and protect you throughout each day.
I will pray for you my little oneUntil our time of waiting is done.
I will pray that the Lord keep you safe from harm,
Until the child of my heart becomes the child in my arms.

Family Reunion

Today was the McKenzie family reunion. It got off to a bit of a slow start. I think we need to send out postcards to remind people what time things are suppose to start. I had a great time talking to Suzie, Lynnea and Tommy as usual. Rebecca, Suzie and Kraig's little girl is just adorable. Full of smiles and giggles, I can't wait for Julia to get here. :-) Everyone wants to know when she's coming...Man, is that the million dollar question. If I only knew when we will get to go... There are some families on the WCC board that are getting NOVEMBER consulate dates. UGH...I sure hope that doesn't mean that we won't get to go till December or January. I don't think that I can wait that long!!

Ok...I'm super dee dooper tired so this is it for tonight...6 short days till we are in Florida!! Love ya Aunt Cherrie!!

Poison Ivy, Interlochen and our Journey the poison ivy started a week or so ago and I didn't know that's what it was. It's now spread into something fierce and it's killing me. I got the doc to give me more prednisone, so hopefully that will help. Otherwise I'm headed to Florida looking like a lepper.

We took our usual Labor Day camping weekend to Interlochen. It went really well I think. We were talking about how life will change when Julia gets here, that grandma's camper might not be big enough for all 5 of us. I would love to have a camper of our own, hopefully we can make it happen. Cam had a great time with Max and Mackenzie again. They played baseball the whole time, along with Gameboys. Theresa and Tyler spent the weekend with us too. We shopped and had fun playing cards. I bought my first Buddha. He's black and holding a globe. I put him up in the living room. I think he looks great. I did buy Julia one outfit. Kristen picked it out at Sam's Club. It's a cute little twin set with pink twill pants. :-) I will post some new pictures of Cameron and Anna from this weekend once we get our new camera set up.

Speaking of Julia, no word on our brown envelope or a LID. Michelle said that Ming was going to ask about them today. I hope we know something soon. We now think it might not be till closer to December that we travel. Wayne is happy, he didn't want to miss Deer Season. He would hate to miss hunting. I'm sure he would be fine without it, but I know that it's important to him. Soooo....I don't think we'll have anymore adoption news till we either hear from Ming on the LID or get the brown envelope with all the paperwork that we need to complete once we get to China. Later!!
