China has officially logged our dossier in (on October 21st, even though we just found out today)! Which means, when the next list of waiting children comes out in November (usually around the 20th of each month) we WILL be matched with our little girl! I am over the moon!!

I also just had to include some super cute pics of Gavin and Daddy putting up Halloween lights. They had so much fun! I can't wait to see her face!
And the other night my Mom and Dad and Niece Shayla came over to carve pumpkins with us. Gavin's pumpkin is the cute one with the big happy face. He drew what he wanted on his pumpkin. Also, it is hard to see but the first picture with all of the pumpkins, the little pumpkin on the left is the one that Gavin insisted that we get for his sister. He said that we could bring it in our suitcase and give it to her in China. So cute!! We finished off the evening by drinking hot chocolate and playing games on our wii. Such a great memory! (Isn't the pic of Lucy "playing cards" adorable!)

Until next time!

Oh my goodness!! I can't believe we are finally DTC today! Our case manager emailed me this afternoon to let me know that she sent it to China. (Dossier to China) We just need China to officially "log us in" then our adoption agency can match us with our little girl!!! I am deliriously happy!!! This is really happening! 7 years in the waiting!!

Until next time :-)

I love October! Gavin and I did a leaf project. We went for a little walk to get some pretty leaves. Gavin had so much fun gluing the leaves to the paper. Sean always does a fantastic job of putting up awesome Halloween decorations and lights outside. I'll post pics when he does. :-)

Until next time :-)
