Ok, it's now a coolish September (Texas-style) which means the high is only in the low 90's! We have cleaned out the 'kids' room closet as well as the future game room closet. We have picked out bedding, beds, wall paint, toys, books, balls, computer learning games, names, etc. We have started to teach the dogs how to be calm with children - our 4 year old neighbor is being used as the stunt child! We have decided on the rearrangement of the furniture when the kids come. Fabulous friends have given us a crib, a car seat, a high chair, numerous stuffed animals, books and toys. We are prepared to leave work for a little while. It's very nice this time of the year in Siberia.

My birthday is in a few days. (Jane)

I want a referral for my birthday! We are READY for a referral!!!!

If you have the urge to pray, rub the Buddha belly, hop on one foot while chanting, please feel free to do so!
We sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I'm chanting and hopping as I write (I am so talented, who knew?!) Here's to referrals for your birthday!

Thank you Jane for the lovely gifts you sent me!
I'll be praying that you get your referral very soon.

Have you tried sleeping with your pajamas on inside out? That seemed to work when I wanted snow as a child. Your family is in my prayers.

Michael and Carrie said...

It sounds like you are getting everything ready! Your region seems to be one of the only ones moving, so maybe you'll hear something very soon!! Have a wonderful birthday! :)

Becky and Keith said...

Happy Birthday to you! I'm hopping on one foot while praying. Is that an option? :-) It definitely sounds like Kemerovo is moving which is great news!

Susan & Randy said...

A referal would be the BEST gift ever for your birthday. Fingers and toes crossed over here for you! BTW, you are right about the weather, we are just north of Austin and our weather is getting really nice here too.

Sorry Jane for the confusion. Debbie linked the wrong Jane to her SBP reveal. There's another Jane on her list that was my SBP, obviously you know it wasn't you. Ooops!
Anyway, I am praying that you get your referral soon.

Leslie & Bryan said...

I am rubbing my belly with one hand, hopping on one foot and chewing gum while patting my head with the other hand in hopes that you get that referral and like now!

Happy Birthday may all your birthday wishes come true!!!!

We were SO NOT READY. We got our referral months earlier than we expected! Hats off to you! Our thoughts are with you.
