What's going on?

We are headed out of town for the long weekend, and it's a good thing, cause the up and down rumors here, are driving me crazy. I try to stay away and just wait and see, but then I can't seem to help myself and keep checking every few hours! I don't think the CCAA will make it to December, but I will be thrilled if they get as far as November 29. It appears we won't get any news until maybe the 10th of this month, but let's hope that means they need the time to keep matching babies!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Wedding in Savannah

We had such a wonderful time in Savannah for Tris and Lexa's wedding weekend - I can't even been to describe all the fun and frivolity that took place! Seeing family and friends and celebrating such a special occasion with everyone was a joy. When we came home, I experienced this huge letdown and missed all the laughter and comfort that being with family brings you.

Anyway, life has once again returned to normal and I finally had the time to put together a little slide show* of the weekend festivities. Hope you enjoy and for those who we there (and those who couldn't make it), we miss you and can't wait to see you all again soon!
