The Great Pumpkin

We had a fun time last night. For a change of pace, we decided to stay home and have a little family party for Halloween. We had a delicious treat of cookies, donut holes and mulled apple cider. Nothing says the holidays are on their way like a cup of hot, mulled apple cider. Yum!

We decided to watch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown". Now I've been watching this special since the mid-60's (oops! I'm giving my age away) and I never noticed this one very funny line that Lucy says. It is the well known scene where she is trying to convince Charlie Brown to kick the football. She assures him that she has a legal document promising that she will not pull the football away. Of course, she pulls it away and sends poor Charlie flying and landing flat on his back. Then Lucy says, "Funny thing about this document it was never notarized." Well, we all got the biggest laugh out of this line. I guess after doing the adoption paper work process three times, even the kids got the humor.

We also watched the new Veggie Tale dvd. This story is called "It's a Meaningful Life". It was really cute and, of course, we enjoyed it even more because adoption is a big part of the story.

I also wanted to thank all of you who have stopped by our blog recently for a visit. Your kind comments mean so much to us.

Wishing all of you a good week. Please know that we are praying for all adoptive families wherever you are in the process, especially those who are waiting to be submitted and those waiting for travel dates.
