Happy TSD!

Happy Tomb Sweeping Day!! I meant to run by H*llmark to get you all a card but dang, I forgot! As of this writing, it's 7:20 PM in Ch*na so their holiday is about over. For those of you unfamiliar, it's yet another holiday that pretty much shuts down the whole country. Well, at least the CC*A and that's all I care about. The rest of the country can party-on, but those working on our dossier (those who SHOULD be working on our dossier) need to get back to work!!

We are waiting on our LID (Log In Date). Grrr. It's taking so long!!!!!!! As soon as we get logged-in, our agency will call them to remind them of their commitment to expedite our dossier. Please, please pray that we get our LID ASAP and then get approval QUICKLY thereafter!! I know of another older child adoption that they reviewed & approved the family IN ONE DAY! So, anything is possible....PLEASE PRAY!!!

Today Brenden & Nick have their first golf tournament of the season. But here's the kicker....the high for today is 40 degrees!!!! They're going to freeze their mulligans off!! My poor babies. I brought out the long johns...scarves....etc, etc. Not exactly comfortable golf attire. Oh and they're playing on one of the hardest courses in our entire state. Maybe I better go along and help them. Maybe not...I've never played golf in my life. Well, the mini variety....but I have a feeling it's slightly different.

So that leaves Lucy and me home alone!! I wish I could say we have some fun plans but I simply must take advantage of the free time and get some cleaning done. But, we may squeeze in some shopping this morning after we drop N off.

Oh the joy of a box!!

If there was ever any doubt that Lucy rules the roost....the fact that she could get her big brother in her new-found play place is all the proof we need.

I'm thinking that our next adoption needs to be a sibling close to Lu's age....however she is having great fun playing with this lasagna noodle.

Uh oh...poor Charlie has become Lucy's target of the moment.

Love your new springy blog look...didn't help in Chicago, though, we are looking at at leat 3 inches of snow. Yuk.

What is it about kids and boxes? My kids tend to have more fun on Christmas morning with the boxes than the toys they got.

Anyway, praying that you will get your LID quickly. Do you mind me asking why they are expiditing your dossier???

Next adoption? lol. Lucy is so cute. I love the last picture. She sounds like me; content to play with a cardboard box. ;)

If it makes you feel any better, it's only 52 here at the moment. Still not good golf weather.

She can't possibly get any cuter! (Neither can B or N for that matter). Can't wait to "meet" Shu Li. Praying, praying, praying.

We have a "girls in the diaper box" picture too!!! Such fun!

And I have the same questions Mandi has...

My my Lucy is getting ADORABLE!

Thanks for the compliment on my blog! I haven't the faintest idea how to do the layout either! I'm sure that morgyn would be happy to help you with yours! She is amazing at it, and literally she finished it in 5 minutes!!

Love ya!

Hope you get your LID quickly AND get expedited. Your sweet girl needs to come home!

I love that your boys love their sister so much they are willing to do all those crazy things that bring her joy. What sweet sons you have!

Holly said...

So funny. Your boys are so great. If I had a teenage daughter, I would be praying they would meet someday! Love the lasagna noodle. Oh yes. They are very fun. :)

Rachel said...

I'm praying today that you will hear very soon of your LID. God's hands are on your paperwork for sure!
Oh, and hey, how creative is it to have a lasagna noodle friend? What a resourceful girl!
