I can explain....
Last night was one of our African adoption get-togethers and since Brandon was out of town shooting a wedding, and his Mom was not feeling too well, his dad was my date :) The event was pretty good, I met a few new families and finally got to meet little Malachi . I spent the evening smiling and playing with all of the beautiful little children and catching up with their parents. Brandon was pretty jealous that he had to miss it.
Also, four Holt families received referrals this week and my friend Jody brought a picture of her beautiful little girl to the event. Also in attendance was Andrea, with pics of her handsome little guy! Yeh! Go Holt families!!!

Oh ya, I had better mention what I was doing during the work week...I was doing an archaeological survey along the Malheur River.
We had a great time, as it was the first time all four of our staff members worked on a project together. BTW, I have to mention that no artifacts were collected from the field and all locational information is protected.

I just realized that I still haven't posted about our CIS trip. Nothing too eventful...everything went smoothly (as far as we know).
Brando had been out of town the 3 days prior to our appointment, so I played hookie to spend some time with him and I also already had to take time off for the appointment, so that justified it (wink wink). Anyway, we arrived early and had some time to kill, Brandon just got a new camera lens, so we wandered around Portland for a 1/2 hour or so to kill time and take pics of course. We checked in with the security guard, filled out some forms, and then waited no more than 10 minutes for our appointments to be called. Smoosh, smoosh, they took our prints and off we went! We tried to go to a new Ethiopian place, but they were closed, as well as our usual Ethiopian spot, so we settled for Sushi instead and headed home.
Funny how I can make a long story over something so short and uneventful...huh? It's a talent. Ask my husband :)
So, once we got home we had the AWESOME idea of making a picture of our fingerprints. Ya'all had better agree to the awesomeness that is this pic:

A blog of Holt's recent trip to Ethiopia, including pics of the orphanage, intake area, Ethiopian staff, and most importantly, the beautiful children!
YouTube video of Holt's president in Ethiopia:
Gee, I sure love priming walls!
We put his mom to work, priming the nursery :)
We have a new front door! Zulu looks like he'll miss the ugly purple one....
And finally, our new door from the outside!
So, we still have some work to do...trim, paint, etc. on the inside, and Brandon wants to start stripping and repainting the outside pretty soon as well. Hopefully we'll get this placed spruced up in no time at all!
