Analyze This

Alright. So, I have had some weird dreams and wake up thinking "where in the world did that come from?" But, the one I had last week has me completely stumped. So, for all of you who like to try and analyze dreams... try analyzing this one and let me know what you come up with.

So, I had a really bad stomach ache and went to the bathroom. I was sitting on the toilet... you know trying to do my business. I was having a real hard time... pushing and pushing. (Hey I'm just being honest with my dream here). So, finally "plop"... oh thank goodness. I take a little peak in the toilet (don't act like you don't look after you're done!!) and want to know what I saw???

Yes, that's a Zhu Zhu Pet. I pooped a hamster. Now come one. Who dreams that they poop a Zhu Zhu Pet?!

Our Referral Day

Tomorrow is our referral day! One year ago we saw the sweetest little face we had ever seen. I just went back and read my post from 1/5/09 and couldn't help but get all anxious, excited and of course.... teary eyed all over again. I can remember like it was yesterday. We went into Christmas break at #1 on the boys list and #2 on the girls list. We have spent so many of our holidays sad and wishing we had a child to share it with, so I wanted that referral before Christmas last year more than anything. I knew when AGCI opened the Monday after break that our call would be coming, it just had to. And boy am I glad it did! I can't believe it has been a year, I really can't. This Christmas was amazing. Best Christmas Ever. Period. I fought back the tears several times just looking at Jaxson and thinking "wow - this is MY son". "This is MY family". We are starting OUR family traditions. Simply amazing. I remember thinking that this moment would never come... and it did, it's here and I'm living in it. I'm blessed beyond my wildest imagination. God sure did hand pick the PERFECT son for us.

Here is one of the first pictures we saw of Jaxson

And here is our happy little family on Christmas morning

Note: as you know I made our blog private now. Tim has been wanting me to make it private ever since we came home because there are so many craziess out there and I just had been putting it off. Well, since Kristi has been having some crazy stalker problems I figured it was a good time to just do it. I feel much better knowing who is out there reading the blog. So, if you know of someone that would like to follow along, just shoot me an email at and I'd be more than happy to add them. And my goal is to post lots more now in 2010 - so keep me accountable!
