This morning, we were all dressed up for church and actually had some time to spare for a change, so we thought we should seize the opportunity and take some photos. I think it's safe to say that it's pretty much impossible to have everyone looking in the same direction and smiling simultaneously. We tried... quite unsuccessfully.

We are still waiting for our referral. I corresponded with our agency director last week and he said we should have our referral by Nov 1. I don't know. I'm kind of skeptical. That's two weeks away. So we shall see...

In closing, we would like to wish my fabulous grandparents a happy (belated) 54th anniversary!

We only wish we could have been there to celebrate with you! We love you!


  1. You know, the pictures are actually really great!!! I know what you mean though. Family pictures are nothing but frustrating.

    I CANNOT wait for an e-mail that doesn't contain the words "We have not recieved a referral yet." I'll make lots of assumptions when that happens, and I'm hoping that's REAL SOON!!!! :) I cannot believe that you are counting the time in WEEKS!!!!!

  2. I think the family pictures are GREAT! Everyone sitting and looking at the camera is so staged, now yours, that's real life!! :)

    I can't believe it's only a couple weeks away from you referral! I am so excited to hear the news! Praying it comes SOON! :)

  3. Oh, but you captured some lovely and spontaneous moments!! But I do KNOW exactly what you mean....just getting them eye balling in the same direction can be challenging! Had some of that myself today! LOL

    I am beyond excited at the thought that your referral could be a mere weeks away!! Goosebumps!! I can't wait to hear!!!

    Beautiful photos....beautiful family!!

    :) hugs! *your grand-p's are sweet as sugar too!!

  4. you should invest in photoshop! but I think the photos are great! Looking forward to hearing about your referral!

  5. A referral in the next two weeks would be great!!! Sure wish your agency would let you announce it on your blog!! Maybe you can give some hints when it happens to us blog-stalkers out there...LOL!!!

    Missy in San Antonio...waiting on our court date...ugh

  6. I think the pictures are great!! A referral in 2 weeks would be great! Can't wait to hear the news!! Did you know we received our referral in September? Now we wait again...for the court process to begin!! It is an awesome feeling though to know you have that referral and see that sweet little face. Your time is coming!!!

  7. You're all so darn good lookin' even if you aren't all lookin' at the camera at the same time. That's just what those conformist picture takers do -- here's to the photo revolution:)

  8. I love picture out-takes. So cute, and real. :)

    I am so ready to see a referral announcement. I can't imagine how you are feeling.
