Happy Thanksgiving y'all!!!!!!
Hope you all have a wonderful time with family or friends today.
(Just a little rebellious about all the Christmas decorations already being out. It used to be bad manners to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving. Or maybe I am just getting old.)
I desperately need y'all to pray for a sweet girl in my youth group. Her father was killed yesterday in a car accident. Her mother passed away two years ago with cancer. When I arrived at her house yesterday, she was understandably heartbroken. This child is 17 and the sweetest thing in the world. She has an older sister that lives at home with them and commutes to college. They desperately need your prayers.

Double Baby Shower!!!

On Sunday, we had a double baby shower! Deb's and my family and friends gave us a wonderful shower at our church. We gathered together to celebrate the gift that God is giving our families. We had a beautiful pink cake and lots of other food. Then we opened gifts! So many special things for our sweet daughters. Thank you all so much for all the love and prayers that we received on this special day!

Good News on Faith!!

Deb received her paperwork from Korea! This means her daughter, Faith, will be home within 30 days!!! Thank you Jesus!!!

OK, so I have been hearing from some of my blogging buddies about how they enjoy geocaching. I had no idea what they were even talking about. But they got me curious. I began looking into it, and I was shocked to find that several caches exist around my hometown! So we invited our grandson and took off in search of the great treasure. In the back of my mind I was hopin to be able to maybe find one, and then be able to successfully find the Tahoe again. But it was great! We found two caches that day. The woods were beautiful and we have so much fun together as a family. If you have no idea what I am talking about, go to and give it a try. I guarentee a great day with your family!

10 Weeks Waiting for LOA.....

Today is 10 weeks waiting for the much-longed-for-all-powerful LOA. However, over the weekend we attended the required class for all of Holt's parents-in-process. Of course we had to pump the SW for info!! She said that parents generally do not go beyond the "3-12 weeks" estimated waiting time for LOAs. So I am anxiously expecting something this week or next!
