Waiting and anticipating....

Posted by Jennifer at 3:51 PM
What's funny, as I titled this post, is that I've seen several other blogs titled the same thing in the past several weeks. Waiting. We're in a period of waiting right now. We are ready to move forward with the next steps in starting our adoption, but are waiting on a few answers from a few different sources.

Seems fitting that we're entering this season of waiting right now. As we're also entering a season of waiting and anticipating the time to celebrate the birth of Christ. Maybe that's not coincidence! This is my favorite season of the year, although this year I feel like I'm going to need to intentionally take time to enjoy it! We are SO busy right now, so I need to remember to stop and enjoy the season for what it is!

What are we busy with? Well, here's just a few things....
  • Co-hosting a baby shower for a friend this Sunday
  • Decorating the church for the Christmas season this Sunday evening
  • Hosting Willis' family Thanksgiving on Friday the 25th - first time we've hosted a family holiday at our new place!
  • Having friends over on Saturday the 26th - for the Civil War football game (GO DUCKS!!!)
  • Kicking off the Lottie Moon Christmas missions offering campaign on Sunday the 27th.
  • Hopefully having folks over Friday Dec. 2nd for the Pac-12 championship game! (GO DUCKS!!!)
  • Breakfast with Santa for school Dec. 3rd
  • Having a Pampered Chef party/adoption fundraiser on Sunday the 4th (let me know if you want to come/buy something!)
  • My school Christmas program is Tuesday, Dec. 13th
  • Plus our normal stuff...work, other church commitments, life group, Brandon's martial arts, and trying to find time to hang out with friends and family!

And that's only through the 13th....there's plenty more going on in December beyond then! :) We're busy - but we're excited for the upcoming season and the upcoming year. I think that 2012 is shaping up to be a pretty amazing year!!

We can't wait to hear either, Beth! Ha ha - we're waiting on our agency to get back to us with some questions we had. Hoping for some answers SOON! :)
