We *Heart* Summer!

Nothing says summertime fun like a ride in a rusty wheelbarrow. Aren't Big C and his Poppa cute? This photo was taken with my mom's AMAZING new camera. I'm not saying we're reaching Pioneer Woman heights, but photo quality is about to improve around here.

Taa Daa!

I finished my Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. The yarn is O-Wool Balance and oh is it ever so comfy. But you guys don't really care about that... Bring on more Charli!

We got a growth and development report on our little sweetheart today. Her orphanage was unaffected by the earthquakes. She appears to be doing quite well. In fact the report indicated that she is very lively (and maybe just a tad naughty!). Our dossier went off to our agency today so we are hopefully just weeks away from being DTC (dossier to China). We are so wonderfully blessed. Please pray for continued protection and healing for Charli. You are truly all "Charli's Angels."

Paperwork Update

Our home study is finally complete. Yahoo! Now we wait for it to clear DHR, then CIS, and then finally it's off to China. Pray that things will move quickly. Also pray for us as we gather the funds we need to get us to China.

Oh my goodness, it's like my life was just set to music.
Happy Mother's Day!

Knitting in Braille

I've been trying to come up with an interesting way to knit Charli's name into her blanket. An old episode of Knitty Gritty featured a sweater with the knitter's name written in braille with bobbles. Bobbles are a pain to knit, so why not use beads instead? This swatch is my name. Pretty cool huh?
