Giveaway time!!


We need to push drawing the winner's name for the Kindle to a couple of extra days.  So instead of tomorrow, Dec 1st, we will draw a name on Saturday Dec  4th.

Sorry for the extra time needed, but appreciate your understanding and thank you!

You may have noticed that the Chipin shows very little, that's because the original one expired and I had to create a new Chipin. 

Okay so we are having a new giveaway and just in time for Christmas!!  Check it out!!

Hand knitted hats!!!!!!

I have met and made a new friend through another adoptive momma friend of mine and my new friend Joleigh L. has knitted these gorgeous hats and has donated them to us to sale to help bring Michael home!

Once again, we are blessed beyond blessed to have her come forward and take time out of her busy schedule to hand knit these.  All to help us raise some more funds!!  

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at:  minnie.gooofy@comcast.net

 Lime green with fabulous matching flower. 
 Can be worn with or without the flower. (We love options!!) 
Size 0-3 months.
Cost is $20 plus $3 shipping and handling.

Beautiful rich purple with matching flower. 
Size 0-3 months. 
Cost $20 plus $3 shipping and handling


This hat is a very rich plum color -- no flower. 
$18 plus shipping and handling.

This is can be a little boy hat, in spite of the model's little pink dress. Left off the flower and the pom-poms in the interest of gender neutrality. 
Size is 0-3 months
Cost is $18 plus $3 shipping.

Beautiful autumn red had WITH a flower if you so desire. This one has pom poms, as well.
Size 0-3 months.
Cost $20 plus $3 shipping.

This beautiful pink yarn is, believe it or not, 100% merino wool -- the softest thing you can imagine and not at all itchy. 
Does need to be hand-washed, but is so worth it in terms of warmth and the fabulous feel. 
Size 6-12 months 
Cost $22 plus $3 shipping.

It's the same fabulous non-itchy merino wool as the pink one so it, too has to be hand-washed. Toddler hat that I guesstimate at about a size 18-24 months
Cost is $22 plus $3 shipping.


Paperwork Update

I just had to share that we were able to send all our paperwork and home study to the USCIS, which is the US Government, to ask them to please approve us to adopt Michael.

They received the paperwork yesterday and so we now wait for them to send a receipt saying they received it and also for our fingerprint appointments.  We then wait again to say they have approved us!

We're not sure what the time frame is for all of this, but hopefully pray-fully it won't take too long.
