Update Long Overdue

September 25, 2010 was the last time I updated our blog.  All I can say is WOW!!!  So much has changed since then.  I would like to report that we have adopted a sweet little baby, but we haven't.  We have taken a different road since then though.  We are now in the process of adopting through DCFS.  It is much cheaper, and I'm happy to report we should be having our final walk through soon.  Once that is done we will be open, and awaiting a foster child.  Although we aren't guaranteed that the child we first get will be the one we are able to adopt, we pray that God will give us the strength to deal with the loss if the child gets to return home.  Without experiencing it firsthand I don't think I can say how I will feel if that time ever does come.  But knowing that we are helping children in desperate need of safety and shelter will hopefully outweigh the loss.  Please continue to praying that we will be strong while we wait! :)

I'm selling hairbows! Here's a couple pictures of them! They are super cute! Not sure what to charge yet. I'm thinking $5 a piece. Tell me what you think and what a good price would be.

I am also making bandana dresses with matching bows.

Benefit Fashion Show/Pageant

Thanks to all who participated in the the fashion show/pageant! One of my bestest friends' Melanie thought this one up and orchestrated the whole thing. She did a great job and it was a success. We raised approximately $750. Thanks again Melanie!!

I also am making girls hairbows to sell. I hear they are all the rage....right next to the silly bands! (Wish I woulda been the genius who came up the idea to make rubber bands into weird shapes to wear as bracelets, which can't be even seen while wearing. Who knew?) Sold a few at the fashion show, but most are so cute I don't wanna part with them. I'll post some pics later.
Well, that's the lastest update. Enjoy the pics below of the fashion show!

This is my sister Emily. We made her compete in the 18+ category. I think she let that cardboard crown go to her head!

This is my neice hamming it up for the camera. Don't let her innocent face fool you!

This is Abbi trying on one of the tu-tu's I made. Wrong end Abbi!!

This is a pic of all the contestants. It's not the best quality.....never let a man handle the camera!
