Quick Update

So, Saturday I sent off our dossier. Now I am a little concerned, and am hoping that someone else who has gone through WHFC can tell me if I should be.

Our packet from WHFC said that "documents must be submitted to them within 3 months of being completed, ie, if it is dated November 7, it has to be to them prior to February 7..." however, the I171 could be sent in at a later date. I take that to mean that everything else just has to be in before it is three months old regardless of the date on the 171. I'm trying to explain this but realize that it is sounding very confusing. As you might be able to guess, some of our documents, namely our medical exams, will be 3 months old on February 7, so I wanted to get everything submitted before we had to bother Tom (our internist) again, and hunt down the notary at the hospital... But, our 171 is not done yet. If that makes any sense to anyone other than me let me know.,

This is so typical of me, instead of being happy that I got all that info Fedex'd off yesterday, I wake up at 5 in the morning today and come downstairs to read through all the info again. Wake Cory up and start buggin him about what it all means... Where he promptly yells at me and tells me to knock it off because I am going to drive myself nuts and him in the process. Go back to sleep!!! It's Sunday!! Hey Christie, does that sound familiar??? ;)

So, I thought that I would share the outside pictures of the house I took to send in with the dossier.. What do you think people in Ethiopia will think of these??? I can't help it, it is winter!!!!

Back of the house.. I was standing in a snow drift up past my butt for this one. I was pretty much laying back in the snow to take it.

Obviously front of house. I would like to point out that I did the snowblowing on this day!!!! Pat came over because I apparently looked so funny, my hair was plastered with snow, and took pictures. So I am sure that they will be circulating. Seriously though, when I came in I had to sit in front of the fireplace to let my hair unthaw enough to get my little ear muff/head band thing off.
