I love it when you call me Big Poppa

Well October is here, and along with that comes the change of seasons, and  the weather as always has been unpredictable.

Now’s as good a time as any to  catch you up on what’s been happening, a couple weeks ago we had the pleasure of attending the wedding of our friends Mat and Jim. It was a beautiful day (although a little hot for September), the ceremony was short and the reception was wonderful. The best part was meeting some new friends, Maureen and Jim, and seeing some long time friends, namely Mat and Holly.

Here are The Hubby and I enjoying a beverage in the Casino Resort we stayed at for the wedding.

Drum Corps rehearsal season is upon us which means it’s time for Election of Officers for the new year. I am running for Drum Major again this year and will start Shaking babies and Kissing hands to get the votes needed to win.

Mabel is settling in nicely, she and Duncan had a little scuffle in the night a couple nights ago. I’m not sure what exactly happened but it was dark and one of them ran into the other and they went sliding across the bedroom floor. They seem to be no worse for the wear though Duncan has a little cut on his neck and ear.

We had dinner with Dad this weekend and he had some news to share with us. Seems he, who has trouble answering his cell phone, has met a new Lady Friend over the internet I guess. Though he didn’t really say for sure that’s where he met her. He wanted to see if we were okay with it. We told him of course we were and all we want was for him to be happy.

Well if you made it this far I guess you get the biggest news report of all. See my Dad wasn’t the only one with a surprising turn of events.

This past weekend The Hubby and I became Dads. Well Foster Dads if you want to get technical. The goal is adoption and hopefully this will piece of the puzzle will move along quickly. This was a rather fast moving placement, though it’s been 6 1/2 years that we have been working on it. We were initially approached back in July asking if we were interested, and on paper it looked good. Fast forward a couple weeks and as usual we heard nothing. Just before we left on the cruise they asked again if we were interested, and again a couple weeks went by and nothing.

We finally got the call a few days after my Sister-in-Law passed away that we were selected and they wanted to work on making all the necessary arrangements for him to move in with us. With all the weddings we had we managed to meet DJ for the first time for a quick dinner together, then a few days later we spent the day together. He moved in this past Friday night and it has been going well. I’ve not used the phrase “Use your Inside voice” so much in the last couple days as I have in my whole adult life so far.

So off we go embarking on this new adventure, now to just figure out who is Dad and who is Daddy.
