Somethings are not by chance

I was just sitting in the baby room feeling sorry. We were approved in Janaury. If we had found out in January we were pregnant, we'd have a baby by now. Plus I kind of set up my own deadline - I know bad idea but I couldn't help myself. Josh's brother left for his mission a year ago. I just think it would be great if he came home to another neice of nephew so it seemed logical to me. Now that we are at the halfway point I have started to panic because it seems like nothing has changed.

So anyways, I was sitting on the floor in the baby room holding one of the baby blankets I've decided to "collect" when this song came on the radio. Josh and I don't really have a song, but if we did I think it would be "Keeper of the Stars" by Tracy Byrd. Well it came on and as I listened to it in my baby state of mind it hit me in a totally different way. So even if Josh and I don't have a song, I think our baby does now because this is the song I am going to sing to them at night.

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
Now I just can't believe you're in my life
Heaven's smilin' down on me
As I look at you tonight

I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything, when I hold you in my arms
And I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

Soft moonlight on your face oh, how you shine
It takes my breath away
Just to look into your eyes
I know I don't deserve a treasure like you
There really are no words
To show my gratitude

So I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything, when I hold you in my arms
And I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew

My husband is HOT!

Seriously, he is. I put up a copy of our family picture at work and people can't stop commenting on him. One lady called him gorgeous. I replied that I had to disagree. He is SEXY! It's funny how much we change over the years. I stumbled onto some blogs of people I went to school with (no I won't say who!) and wow, none of them have aged nearly as well as Josh. Some comments I've gotten from our family picture are:
Wow, he is gorgeous!
That's a nice engagement picture.
You make a beautiful couple.
He takes a good picture.
Lucky you!
There have been others. I shouldn't brag, but I married well. Sigh, we would have beautiful kids! But I have to go off the hope of what my grandpa said when we told him we were adopting. He told us it didn't matter where our family came from, just remember that he thinks all his grand kids look like him. I love my grandpa!
FYI - that is not an invitation to comment about how so and so adopted and you would never know because their kids look just like them. Sorry to be blunt; I know you mean well, but actually that is something an infertile person doesn't like to hear.


IT'S HALLOWEEN! I am so excited. Today I am going to bake sugar cookies to hand out to the few people who venture out to our house. People should learn that it's worth the trip to our home! But that is the downside of living in the country. Our ward is doing trunk-or-treat, but I'm not going. Actually there is 2 reasons I won't go. First off, even though it is my favorite holiday, it is a hard holiday to be childless. It will be less painful if I stay home. Also I don't like the idea of trunk-or-treat. That leaves out so many people especially the older generation. Josh's grandpa Paul loves to have visitors and one would think that you would get several on this night, but since trunk-or-treat started he hardly gets any visitors at all. I don't think that's right. When it started it was supposed to be every other year, they've done it every years since we moved here! To those of you who have children, I do understand how nice it is to make one big stop and you will save gas money. But please, at least stop ot some homes between your house and the church and visit those who can't go out tonight!
As for me I expect to see Josh's boss' family, my nephew, and maybe the kids from Josh's Sunday School class, although I don't expect them until we go to bed and they'll probably bring toilet paper....

Officially, a mummy is a body that is preserved. Some mummies are made naturally. Some are made on purpose, by people. The basic idea is that if you keep bacteria and fungi from growing, the dead body won't decay.
Egyptians are probably the most famous mummy-makers (even though other cultures, like the Incas did it first). The hot, dry weather in Egypt sometimes quick-dried dead bodies and made mummies. This got the Egyptians thinking, and they started making mummies about 3000 BC. They thought that by preserving the body, they could reunify the body and spirit after death. The first step in their mummification process was to remove most of the organs, like the lungs, liver, stomach, intestines, and even the brain (which they took out through the nose--Yuk!). Then, they'd rinse the body with wine (to kill bacteria), pack it with natron (a salt-like substance) and leave the body to dry for a while. Then, they'd use perfume and paints to make the body beautiful. Finally, they'd wrap the whole thing in strips of linen. This, they believed, would guarantee eternal life. Egyptians stopped making mummies about 500 AD.
Other mummification processes involve very cold temperatures, and oxygen deprivation--because both of these things stop bacteria. Pretty creepy, huh?
Now, if you decide to be a mummy for Halloween, I recommend using lots of toilet paper. But you can skip the perfume and the salt!

Sigh....of Relief!

Sometimes things work out okay. I was issued my calling tonight and I'm not supposed to say what it is until they announce it in church on Sunday, but I can say that I am okay with this one. Oh and I can also say YIPPEE - IT'S NOT YW'S! I am still thanking Heaven for that! I was just sure that was the calling I would get. I feel like there is some lessons of life I need to learn and since I didn't learn them with the last trial that I was going to be thrown into the firepit again.

The only down side to this new calling is I won't be able to attend Relief Society.

Oddles of Noodles!

Last night we had Worms for Brains (Spaghetti in hollowed out orange peppers carved into jack-o'-lanterns). I have never made spaghetti for more than Josh and I, so when I had to cook for 10 adults and 4 children I wasn't sure how much to cook. I had a pot full, but Josh didn't think it was enough, so I made another potful. The first pot would have been enough....
I love spaghetti; it's one of my favorite things. But I'm not sure if I can eat this much. A couple of years ago I made a Southwestern Spaghetti that was really good. I know it was in one of my Taste of Home magazine, but I didn't want to look through each one. The TofH website was being stupid so I made the recipe from memory. Here goes:

Cooked Spaghetti noodles
1 can Spaghetti sauce
1 envelope Taco Seasoning
1 small can sliced olives
1 can sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 lb pork sausage
1 cup cheese
Cook the meat. Beef would work too, but I am a big fan of pork! Drain fat (I don't have to do that since it is homegrown, our big didn't have any fat!). Stir in spaghetti sauce, taco seasoning, olives, mushrooms and garlic. Combine with Spaghetti noodles. Pour into casserole dish. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Add cheese and cook 5 minutes longer. Wohoo - great dinner idea! Plus I still have enough noodles (hence the title) to make regular spaghetti tomorrow night.

The Other Side of the Fence

In my support group we have been talking about adoption or infertility artwork we would like to see produced. That got me thinking that I would like something to hang in my home. To the internet I go.....
My findings were very disapointing. Not only did I not find any artwork, but all the search results that came up were very negative towards adoption. These websites went on and on about the lies that birthmothers are told and how we decieve them. I was shocked. Now I understand that placing a child for adoption will be the hardest experience a girl/woman could ever go through, but I have to disagree with these websites!
When we first started learning about open adoption one of the first things we were told was don't promise more than you can give because if a birthmom has a bad experience she will tell others and then they may choose to raise their baby themselves.
That is something I still struggle with. Really who am I to say that Josh and I would be better parents than someone else. We don't know that. What we do know is that our hearts ache to become parents. We want to have a family and raise a child as our own. We don't care that we can't have a child of our own. We are extatic to adopt. But it still bothers me when I see girls choose single parenting. Maybe they aren't bad parents, but maybe things could be better. Do you know what part of us adopting bothers me the most? For 6 months that child will only be ours for our earthly lives. We can't be sealed in the temple until the adoption is finalized and state requirement is 6 months. I can only imagine that my thought will always be chaotic. What if something happens? What if our baby or one of us dies? We won't be a forever family! Those thoughts haunt me!
I'm sure that every case is different. And I know some girls do have bad experiences when they place their baby. I'm sorry. I hope we can be better than that. These girls goes through Hell. I don't want to make it any worse for them.
FYI - our thoughts on open adoption right now are:
We want to meet the birthmom before the birth and get to know her.
We want to exchange gifts at the 1st meeting at and placement of the baby. We have actually already bought a few things we felt inspired to get.
After placement we want to exchange pictures and letters. That shouldn't be a problem knowing how much I love to take pictures! The whole reason for this blogsite was so it would be easier to share pictures and info.
After that we are a little unsure so we have said we will be open to other options as time passes. It is easier to give a little at a time rather than to give it all and then try to take it back if things don't work well.
We are considering visits after placement, but preferably in a public place.
We have seen several families do open adoption and it is a wonderful situation. We know it is the right things. Birthmoms shouldn't have to wonder what happened to their child. They will always have an attachment and they will always remember their baby. And those children will want to know someday about their birthmom. We have no secrets to hide. Adoption is a beautiful thing, but it is also a very painful thing.

Halloween dinner

Here is some pictures from my 3rd annual Halloween dinner!
Witch hats filled with Chocolate pudding. I wanted to use chocolate cones, but I couldn't find them. Curse living in a small town when I need special foods for cooking!

This is my cousin Krista. She couldn't wait for dessert!

This is my nephew Preston. He loves spaghetti.

This is my cousing Konner.
This is Josh's Grandpa and his cousin Kyle.
This is my sister in-law holding Kaitlyn. She and Konner are twins.
This is Kynlee & Krista with their mom and Grandma. - Did you catch all the "K's?" The family is Kyle Don, Krista Dawn, Kynlee Diane, Konner Dean, and Kaitlyn Deann. Say that 3 times fast!
Krista loves to have her picture taken.

Yay - I got the Edward pumpkin. He has fangs! We had "Worms for Brains". That is spaghetti in orange peppers carved into pumpkins. Then we had broomsticks (breadsticks). We also had witches brew punch - it was orange. Dessert was the witches hats. We had a ton of fun.

Spider Pops

My mom found these for me. Aren't they cute? I wish I had time to make them, but I don't know. Maybe I'll have to make them next year (along with those ghosts I posted earlier).

4 black pipe cleaners
Googly eyes

Holding all four pipe cleaners, center them at the base of the opo and wrap them around the stick once so there are four legs on each side. Bend the legs. Glue on googly eyes. Not, is it a trick--or a treat?

Just Being Lazy

Aunt Maxine went through the temple today

Josh's aunt Maxine went through the temple today. It was such a great experience. She was sealed to her parents and to her husband and also her son. Newell (her husband) passed away two years ago so it was a bittersweet experience.

Top 10 Most Disgusting Treats...

On Halloween night, some houses struggle with the idea of candy. There are good houses, and there are bad houses. The best trick-or-treaters know to avoid the latter. At the food site Serious Eats, we all love Halloween, but wish certain homes would just stop handing out the classically bad "treats." They weren't good last year, the year before that, or now. Our own Erin Zimmer put together this list of our top 10 Halloween treats that nobody wants...

Toothbrushes Dentists and orthodontists should not be allowed to celebrate Halloween if they're going to get all tooth doctory on us. Do not bring your work home with you, folks! We all have a personal responsibility to brush, and maybe some of us will forget, but your complimentary bristles on a stick (instead of a Snickers) will not help us remember. It will make us despise you and your trade.

Raisins Little boxes of stuck-together shriveled globs are not what little kids schlep around the neighborhood for all night. When they say trick-or-treat, they want candy that will rot their teeth, not wrinkled grapes. (Using an empty box as a kazoo-like instrument, though, is kinda fun.)

Candy Corn The most polarizing candy of all. The fruitcake of Halloween; it just never goes away. If you love them, fine. But don't subject the rest of us haters to the sickeningly sweet triangle that tastes like neither candy nor corn.

Smarties and Necco Wafers These chalky candies are supposedly "fruit-flavored," but no fruit I know tastes like dust -- and makes everything eaten after taste like dust, too.

Dum Dum Lollipops Usually, foods on a stick are yummy (corn dogs, ice pops), but Dum Dums just can't be included on that list. Not even if they were breaded and deep-fried and served at a fair.

Apples Long before "poisoned candy" scares, evil people were handing out apples instead of candy on Halloween. This disappointing "treat" is the main reason to avoid unwrapped food while trick-or-treating.

Tootsie Rolls It looks like chocolate and sort of smells like chocolate, but the mini brown tubes are not real chocolate. They taste like watered-down chocolate, and have a chewy texture that will strip the fillings right off your molars.

Miscellaneous, Wrapped Hard Candies Halloween is supposed to be a holiday for young people, not senior citizens who suck on hard candies all day. Something about the strawberry-shaped strawberries, gold-wrapped butterscotch, and peppermint feels past the expiration date. (These usually get set aside for Granny.)

Laffy Taffy I do not laffy when I get these. I sobby. I get depressedy. Because it gets all stucky to my teethy and doesn't even taste that goody.

Anything Fun-Sized Who started calling it this? Since when is one bite fun?! Give us the rich houses with the sprawling driveways and full-sized candy bars any day. Portion control doesn't need to start this young.

It was so much fun!

4 Tricks to Treat Halloween Candy Concerns

I found these tips while looking around on the internet. I thought they were pretty good. I think Josh needs this list....

Halloween is fast approaching and, as many parents know, this is one of kids' favorite holidays. Why wouldn't it be? Dressing in costumes is a wonderful form of play... and there are sweets involved! The candy collection and consumption of trick-or-treating is what drives kids to worship this holiday. Unfortunately, it's also one of parents' main worries. Here are 4 tried and true ways to handle your concerns about candy consumption...

Make it Last
Better not to rain on their parade by letting concern for candy binging distract from kids' fun. Parents can, however, help their children take stock of their inventory and encourage them to consume less by explaining it will make their bounty last longer.

Encourage Sharing
Encourage kids to share with people they care about such as a relative or favorite teacher. Creating small gifts of candy in plastic wrap tied together with ribbon and a small note. Sometimes it is little gestures that make the most impact on a child.

Focus on Safety
Channel nutritional concerns into attention on safety issues. Make sure costumes are injury-free and on Halloween night keep tabs on the whereabouts of your child.

Fuel-Up Beforehand
Take some attention away from the candy with a good, hearty meal before venturing out to trick-or-treat. Make it fun with a quick easy pumpkin soup. Serve it with their favorite sandwich cut into ghost or pumpkin shapes using cookie cutters. This will get a festive evening off and running! Remember, this is their holiday. Help them build positive memories that will last a lifetime

It made me cry...

I was at a boutique today and I found a plaque that made me cry. It says
"Everday Holds The Possibility...
Of A Miracle."

I bought two! One for us and one for our future birthmother for when we finally meet her. I might use it as a placement gift. I also have a Willow Tree figurine I plan to give her. Oh, and before you ask, no we don't know who she is yet. But we love her already and pray for her daily.

Random Thoughts

Wow, I have a lot on my mind right now!
First - I am sore! I started taking dance class a few weeks ago. We've been doing tap class for 30 minutes, but last night we decided to also do 30 minutes of jazz dance. It is fun, but my legs are stiff today. I'm not very good at dancing, but I am having a great time.

Second - Our adoption website is coming along. I have abandoned the old website for now so I can concentrate on the new. I still can't completely figure out how to upload my pictures on the old website. I think they are there, but I also think they will show up thumbnail size. The new website finally has a sample page we can view so I can get a better idea of what needs done. I still need more pictures of us! This weekend we went to Grandpa's to take pictures in his leaf pile, but his tree hasn't even changed colors yet! Maybe next weekend...

Third- My Halloween dinner is this weekend. I think I finally have a menu planned out. I still need to decide on a drink and pick a dessert out of the many I marked.

Fourth - This is my biggest thought right now. On Sunday I was released from the Relief Society. I had only been in there for a year, but the rest of the presidency had been in for a few years so it was time for a change. I was so nervous when I was put in the Relief Society, but I loved it so much. I don't want a different calling. I love interacting with the ladies. I had always been in Primary before that. I do know which calling I DO NOT WANT! Please, please, PLEASE, don't call me to YW's. I know, of course that is what I probably will get; there is an opening there right now. They pulled someone from their to fill my spot.

Candy Corn

It's no secret that candy corn's fave time of year is Halloween, right? Why? Well, mostly because of the totally Halloweenie colors! The orange, yellow and white colors totally scream Halloween to me! About 20 million pounds of candy corn will be sold this Halloween. That's totally over 8 billion individual pieces of corn! That's a ton of candy! Sheesh!
The actual ingredients of candy corn involves corn syrup, sugar and water, but the Goelitz people add a bit of a special marshmallow ingredient to give their candy corn a truly "gourmet" taste. The corn starch is poured into a tray, and then they mold it into the shape of the corn kernel. After that, they fill the shape up, one squirt of color at a time. The candy is then aged for a couple of days, and then it's separated from the corn starch. After that, the candy is dumped into a huge mixer, and bee's wax and candy glaze are added to the mix. This polishes the candy corn up with a great, sweet taste. After that, the candy corn is put on an assembly line and is picked over to make sure only the most perfect kernels get packaged up for sale.
The best candy corn is super-sweet tasting and has an almost vanilla flavor. It should be nice and soft when you bite it, and it should be totally fresh. If you see a bag of candy corn on the shelf that looks like it's from last year, odds are it'll taste like it's from last year, too!
So, this Halloween, if you get a bunch of candy corn in your trick-or-treat bag, you'll totally know something about where it comes from! Don't get a tummy ache from all that snacking!

Cranberry Cheese Spread

Okay, I'm not excatly sure what is Halloween about this appetizer, but it was in my Halloween Taste of Home Magazine and it was so yummy! I didn't spread mine over an entire plate like they did in the picture. Instead I made up the mixture and let it set up in a bowl. Then I transfered it to a plate. It came out in an almost perfect shape. For crackers I had multi grain wheat thins and another multi grain cracker. I thought they would be better than a salty type cracker.

Cranberry Cheese Spread
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 can (16 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
Assorted crackers
Directions: In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, honey and cinnamon until smooth. Spread onto a serving dish or plate. In a small bowl, stir cranberry sauce until it reaches spreading consistency; spread over cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with almonds. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Serve with crackers. Yield: 12-14 servings.

New Family Picture

We just had our family picture taken and I think it is the best professional picture we have ever done. I have one at work and several people have told me how nice it looks. One lady actually called my husband gorgeous! I had to agree, but I tend to lean more towards sexy myself.
