Referrals are in...

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. ;)

I had quite the dilemma for this year's Super Bowl: No self-respecting Bills fan would voluntarily root for either of the two teams! However, I was so not wanting the Pats to have a perfect season, I chose the Giants. Though I do think it would have been hilarious if it'd come down to the Giants needing a field goal to win, only to have it go "Wide Right". (Joe will get that).

Well, 8 days is definitely better!

Congratulations to everyone who received their referral, but, geez, I really wish they had managed 3 more days. We are not waiting, but my heart aches for everyone who is so close and has been waiting so long.

I'm a Giant fan, so of course I enjoyed the Super Bowl. I also LOVE Tom Petty, and thought the same thing you did! It would have been much more realistic if they didn't have 17 year olds in the audience!

Yeah for the 8 day referral batch!

Have fun registering at Babies 'R Us when you do! Last week Mary-Mia and I went and added things to Hannah's gift registry. As a mom of adorable twins she had some great ideas of helpful things to have as well!

Bring on 2006 referrals! :o)
