According to the Queen, the CCAA got through December 27, 2005, with this month's batch. The CCAA isn't posting the official cut-off date on their web site anymore, but I'm pretty confident in the Queen's sources.
It sure would have been nice if they could have done just three more days and taken care of the entire month of December! Now it looks like they are taking five months to get through December...pretty crazy, huh? At least they will FINALLY get into 2006 next month! Joe and I had decided a while back that we would celebrate them getting into 2006 by registering at Babies R Us. Looks like we'll be waiting another month for that, but look out...soon I will have a scanning gun in hand!
China is experiencing horrible snow storms and severe cold temperatures. Half the Sky Foundation has posted how the storms are affecting orphanages here. Some of them have no power, food, water or diapers for the babies. It's very sad and my heart goes out to waiting parents with referrals in hand who's children are at these orphanages. I'm praying that they receive the help they need and that all the children are safe and healthy. You can donate to the emergency fund here.
Hey, how did everyone like the Super Bowl? Pretty exciting 4th quarter, don't you think? I enjoyed the half-time show, since I love Tom Petty, but thought it was funny that most of the fake crowd they had cheering his concert on seemed too young to even know who he is. ;)
