Dreaming of a White Christmas



I can't say a white Christmas is in our future with tempetures today of 70 degree, but one can hope.  Roman is dreaming of making a snow man, sledding, and making snowballs.  In the mean time, we decided to make these melted snowmen sugar cookies and read Snowmen at Night.  A fun story of what snowmen do when all are sleeping a night.
.
While Roman is dreaming of snow, I am dreaming of holding this sweet little girl in my arms.  On Tuesday, our Article 5 was picked up at the U.S. Consulate in China and we are officially waiting TA the final step in the adoption process prior to going over to China (travel approval).  This should come in the next 7-21 days.  I am of course praying for way under 21 days as we are hoping to leave for China on the 1st of January in hopes of having a Gotcha day of January 6th.  Please pray along with us!



So it is Friday!  What do you have planned for the weekend?  We are planning to go to our cities tree lighting ceremony.  The boys need haircuts and I am looking forward to just relaxing.
