I'm Dreaming of a Warm(er) Christmas...

Greetings from the Left Coast! We made it here just in time to miss a snowstorm. My hubby and I have enjoyed walking around the city sans jackets and spending time with family and friends.

I'm amazed at the large amount of big announcements lately. We arrived here on Friday and already I have heard of a couple engagements and a few pregnancies. *sigh* I had hoped that by now we would have an adoption announcement of our own. But God has His own ways of doing things. A good friend reminded me today about the need to trust Him no matter what (easier said than done). The pain and longing that I endure now will only make the child's coming even more sweet and worth it.

On a lighter note, my dear husband came up with a little prank for my parents' backyard. They have a St. Joseph statue that has become buried in ivy over the years. Well, we were worried that St. Joe couldn't breathe, so the photo below shows how we took care of it. :)



P.S. My dear IF friends (online and IRL), I'm so grateful for your continued support, encouragement, and especially empathy.

Sorry you've had to deal with pregnancy announcements, but I'm glad your trip is going well. Your solution for helping St. Joseph is hilarious.

Don't worry, you didn't miss much snow at all, it was mostly east of us. I'm sure they'll be plenty more this winter after you get back!!

Love the solution for St. Joseph!! Now he can breathe!!

I hope your Christmas was wonderful, despite the sneak-attack pg announcement. Love what you did for St Joe :)

We've had a great time!! St. Joseph will get his own roof soon, so he won't need the mask. :)
