best weekend EVER...

This past weekend was a blast!!! My brother got married in K.C. and the wedding was nothing short of fabulous. Friday afternoon we had the rehearsal and then a very nice dinner at Cafe Italia in North K.C. The meal was very, very good and so were the "refreshments" :) It was great meeting some of Krissy's family and friends throughout the evening. Krissy's friends put together a very nice slide show of both her and Ryan through the years. Needless to say, there were lots of laughs and tears and a good time was had by all.
Saturday all the guys got ready at Ryan's and waited for the limo to take us to the church. The limo was awesome! It was a huge SUV type limo decked out with lights, speakers, t.v.'s....the works! The wedding itself was a very nice Catholic ceremony. Once the I-Do's were exchanged, the party really started. Because the wedding was over around 3 there was a lot of downtime until cocktail hour began so the wedding party took some photos in downtown K.C. The reception was held at the President Hotel in downtown K.C. and it was spectacular! I've got to admit, it was hands down, the best wedding/reception I've ever been to. Lot's more pictures can be viewed on my FB account if want to check them out. After all the great parties this weekend we're going through a bit of post-wedding depression now that we're back to the grind :)

Speaking of depression, there is absolutely nothing new to report on the adoption homefront. For some unexplainable reason, referrals through our agency have pretty much hit a brick wall. It's been a pretty frustrating past couple of months.
We did get some letters for Marley's room this week and got them hung. Next we're going to get the big Heart-in-Africa decal from the Sager's Etsy Store. It's going in the corner of our nursery. We also need to get some new bi-fold closet doors and a new rocker/glider. Just a couple of more things to do to help pass the time. We're approaching 8 months on the wait list and the whole wait-game is getting harder and harder to play. Please pray for Staci and I that things start to pick up and that we can get a referral and travel date sometime THIS year. In the immortal words of the great Jon Bon Jovi, "we gotta keep the faith". Until next time, enjoy the pics!--Kris

I love your nursery pics. So cute! We've been working on our nursery and I've been thinking about wall decorations too. Love Marley's name in letters! Hope we start seeing a pick up in referrals soon.
