Happy Thanksgiving

Yesterday marked two months since we saw the first videos and photos of our daughter.  Though we were hoping to have it done already, we are still working on the immigration update.  Our home study update has taken longer to finish that we hoped, and it has put us further behind in the projected schedule we had for getting to actually travel.  Though time frames in the adoption world are often fluid, it is frustrating to know that things are taking longer than we thought they would.  In spite of this, we are still very thankful to finally have a name and a face that we can see while we continue to complete the necessary steps to bring her home.

Today was spent with my brother who came in town for a few days, and some friends.  We spent several hours cooking, fellowshipping, and of course, eating.  It was my responsibility to bring desserts and rolls for our get together today: I made the desserts yesterday and Harris Teeter and Walmart made the rolls.  :-)  It has become a tradition in our family to allow each person to choose a pie or dessert that he/she would like.  We ended up with fudge, pumpkin, chocolate, sweet potato, blueberry, and Boston Cream (which is more like  a cake) pies, as well as a cheesecake with strawberry glaze to go on the top.  We still have quite a bit of dessert left, even after sharing it around with the others with whom we had Thanksgiving dinner.  I think I will be having pumpkin pie for breakfast tomorrow.  Mmmm! Before you judge me too harshly, it has to be bettter for me than some of the other things that are sometimes eaten for breakfast - donuts, sugared cereals, Poptarts, and coffee cakes, right?!

Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream...Mmmm!

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
