"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

Move Over Cinnabon!!

Well, we did our Cinnamon Roll Sales this weekend at our City's Homer Davenport Days -and it went well. It didn't go as good as it could-the weather was cooler on Saturday and 1/2 of Sunday it rained, so we ended up not even attempting to sell them on Sunday....plus as a side note, Sunday started off really bad as our kids had found a stray dog-a nice looking black lab mix-running around the park and brought it home Sat. night to try and find it's owner....well, we had it in and out of the house and Sunday morning, while I was on the computer trying to put ads on the local newspapers and Craig's list to try and find the owner and my husband came running in-the stray had busted open our guinea pig cage and killed it! I am not a huge animal lover, but it was sad-as this little guy was such a sweet heart and we have had him about 3 years and he is SO tame, never bites, etc....the kids were all crying-not a good way to start a day...so we kicked the dog out of our house and stayed home and picked up, read, etc. the rest of the day-just were not in the mood to sell and with the weather, it was yucky.
POOR Louis!!!

So, between my mom, myself and a good friend Kristy, we made about 12 DOZEN cinnamon rolls and ended up selling a little over 5 dozen....so not too bad for 1 day when we planned on 2. We made $150. So, lets just say that the people at my work the next two days will be happy with cinnamon rolls to scarf down! :-)
We got a "travel packet" from our agency and it came with this cute stuff-(Sorry that I have to black out her face in all of the pictures-the Ethiopian government has a rule that until you legally become parents at court, you can't post their picture on line and our agency even asks us to wait until we get her home to post pictures anywhere on-line. Showing them in person is fine, but we can't post them on blogs, Facebook, etc. They have really tightened down and don't want their children exploited when they are not legally ours-which is reasonable with how much Internet access has become so crazy).
So pray hard that this week we will get our first court appointment dates-we are praying that we will get the October court dates and not have to wait until November. Some families that are just getting back from their court appointments, are getting to go back in as little as 3 weeks for their embassy/visa appointment-where they bring their kids home-not sure if this will change after courts reopen in the fall, but we can hope!

My Mom made Abby her very own security blanket-which is under the sign-I LOVE it!!!


  1. Oh Yum!!!! I would definitely buy a whole bunch - they look SO GOOD! Too bad you can't box them up and send them to Nebraska! :)

  2. Oh wow! I wish I had seen this before - my dad and step mom were at Homer Davenport days!

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
