Christmas party

Last night we had a group of friends over for a potluck dinner and then Pictionary. I made gingerbread cake with rum sauce and it was heavenly. All of our friends brought along their dogs and you can see them in the picture below lining up to get a treat from Brian. Sid is right in the middle of course! We had a great time and Pictionary was pretty eventful, as usual. We always have tons of arguements about the rules and one team always accuses the other of cheating, but in the end it's all for fun. We moved our christmas tree downstairs this year. It is always up in the living room, but I thought it would be nice to have it downstairs this year because we are spending alot more time down there since we put in the new woodstove. It's just so warm and cozy. We love it!

7 month Anniversary!

Well another month has passed and we are now 7 months since ICAB approval. I am hoping to hear something in a year from now but you never know when your time will come. Rachel, a friend who I met on a Philippines adoption Yahoo group, travelled to the Philippines over the weekend to pick up her son. It has been very exciting following her journey and I can't wait to hear all about her trip when she returns.

Not much else is new around here. I'm finished all of my Christmas decorating and I have all the gifts wrapped. Last week was full of Christmas parties and tomorrow I have a Christmas lunch at my work and then a Christmas dinner at Brian's work. I'll pretty much be spending my whole day eating! Not that I'm complaining. My running friends and I had a big cookie exchange last weekend. I received 4.5 dozen cookies and guess what?? I've eaten them all already (except for the 4 or 5 that Brian ate). I am going have to do some serious cutting back after Christmas or else I'm going to have to buy all new clothes!
