Scott headed down to Miami today for the big bowl game. He spent most of the week gloating about his nice hotel on the beach and how warm it was going to be. He enjoyed telling us what he was packing - his swimsuit, sunscreen, books to read on the beach, etc. So soon after checking in he sends this picture from his hotel beach with the caption "It's warm". Currently, it is sleeting, dark and cold here.


We had a nice Christmas celebration this year. Christmas Eve we attended a candlelight service and then headed to my sister's for their annual Chrismas Eve dinner. They always serve white chili and they have perfected it over the years and it is wonderful. Christmas morning we spent here and then headed over to my parents for the afternoon.

Official Referral!!

Today we received our official referral from Ethiopia. It was a little anti-climatic as we already knew who we are adopting, but it was still exciting. We received some new pictures and a much more extensive history of her and her medical needs. It was a little daunting seeing all of her medical needs down on paper and for a second there I really wanted to run. But it didn't work so well for Jonah when he ignored what God told him to do, so we are accepting the referral and moving on.

Gingerbread Houses

December has been busy!! Earlier this month we had our annual gingerbread house meeting. The kids had a blast. We were able to meet down at Camp Westminster (where Scott and Amy worked last summer) so the older kids were able to go horseback riding.

Seperated at Birth

As some of you know, GA Tech will be facing Iowa in the Orange Bowl on January 5th. Several of Eric's colleagues at work are alumni and one in particular follows GA Tech football and searches various message boards for anything pertaining to the team. On the Iowa message board she found that they had done various "separated at birth" pictures. And guess who made it on there?
