Good times and a sick boy!

W2's lady love.
W1 had a sleep over last night and the boys had a great time until W1 woke up this morning with a sore throat. Strep again-this makes 3 times in the last 3 months. He will probably have to have his tonsils removed in 2009. Luckily, the doctor took pity on him and gave him medicine, not a shot...New Year's Eve plans have been canceled and we will miss our friends that we always celebrate with! Hope everyone has a blessed 2009!

Last Home Study

We have just had our last home study! Hooray! The boys did great-they were very sweet and gave her a tour of our house. She hopes to have everything written up this week and then it could be a month before it is finalized for our agency-due to changes that might need to be made on wording since it has to be translated. We are so step closer to our daughter!

Yesterday, we spent a great day at my aunt and uncles house. The boys had so much fun playing with their cousins and shooting rockets! It was a great way to end the Christmas festivities. Two of my cousins have babies and they are so sweet. Hopefully, next year there will be one more!!

Happy New Year! Tomorrow, W1 has 2 maybe 3 friends coming over for a sleepover-he is so excited! Hopefully, the house will still be standing-ha!

The day after!

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. We had a great time and still have much to try on and put away!! The boys had so much fun opening their gifts and W2 kept saying, "Do I have any more?" We have to put away as much as we can ASAP because our second home study is on Monday-YEAH!! Hopefully, all of the decorations will be up and the house will be back to "normal." Say a prayer for us.
We had a great time today at my aunts house. Dad B and W1 did not go because W1 is feeling under the weather-he has a bad cough. We missed them but enjoyed catching up with our extended family.
Have a great weekend!

More Christmas pictures

Merry Christmas

Hope everyone is having a very Merry Christmas! We have had a great few days- Last night we went to church for an early service and then to Mawmaw and Joppy's house for dinner and presents. We had a wonderful time with family-Dad B's grandmother came over, too, and really enjoyed the sweets! Nana, Pawpaw and my Brother B came over this morning early for Santa and breakfast. Everything was delicious and we all love our gifts. Dad B got me a disposal! YEAH!! We don't have city water and sewer at our new house but he found a new disposal that works with cartridges-who would have thought someone could get so excited about a disposal! I got my husband a car radio for his Jeep and the boys got lots of new gadgets!! Thanks for all of the gifts!! Merry Christmas! Now to go clean up!

We had our first "home study" last Friday and it went well. We met at our social workers house and hopefully we will have our last visit at our home before New Year's. We are getting so excited to be nearing the end of the paper chase process! We can't wait to be on the wait list!!!
The boys are very excited about Christmas-W1 wants a cell phone-ha! Not for many more years! W2 wants 3 cats-again, ha! He terrorizes Kitty enough. W2 has already separated the gifts into piles and has counted them....he is my little helper! W1 is all about sports-he is having a blast watching ESPN-it is just too cold to go out and shoot basketball.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hopefully when my brother comes home I can post some pictures-Dad B and I are not very computer savvy!

Here we go!

Hi everyone. We are so excited to be posting for the first time. We are the Britt family and we are in the "paper chase" process of adopting a baby girl (up to 18 months old) from Ethiopia. We officially began our journey on Sept. 11, 2008. We have 2 boys, W1 who is 9 and W2 who is 7. They are very excited about having a baby sister and will be very protective, I am sure! Join us as we journey to the land of Ethiopia to bring home our sweet baby girl!
