Sandfest 2011

Last weekend we went down to Port Aransas, Texas to see Sandfest. It was pretty amazing seeing all of the different sculptures. We weren't able to see what the sculptures looked like at the finish, but what we did see was pretty fabulous. One thing that we noticed while walking around was they had gallons of glue by each entry. Not exactly sure how they incorporated that... They also had an amateur contest, which looked very professional. While at Sandfest we had the chance to eat some really fun food like fish tacos, Texas fries, cheese cake on a stick, deep fried Oreos, etc... We were able to visit with friends and family and were treated like royalty at my parent's house. I'm sure we will all be back in Port A. sometime soon. It was a wonderful weekend made with special memories.

...and the story continues...I told Matt that I thought I heard something in the ceiling. He told me I was just hearing things, LOL. Well, later on he called me to come downstairs and listen...and yup, there's nothing like hearing something crawling around on your ceiling. Don't you just love the little claws click clacking away? EWWWW!!! You would think the dogs would react to a raccoon being in our house especially since I've seen two of them tug an oppossum between them like a toy, but they just went to sleep. Today a pest control company came out and told Matt that we have damage on our roof thanks to a raccoon. They left a trap, so hopefully the little guy will be captured soon...we tried to look in the trap tonight, but we coudln't see a thing.

Adoption Update: The major thing we are waiting for is a referral, which won't come until the end of summer or early fall. Some of you may have noticed people asking about what number we are in line. Well, we may be numbered. However, our agency does not tell us what number we are, especially since they have said the referral of a child does not necessarily go in order of when home study was received. So, there is a chance we could get a referral before my predicted timeframe. When we got home from Port A. we did have a letter from immigration letting us know our fingerprinting will be scheduled soon...and today we got a letter from our agency officially letting us know that our Homestudy has been Sent to Korea!!! We hope you have been enjoying some beautiful spring weather and have a very Happy Easter!
