This Post is TWO MONTHS late!

This post is almost 2 months late...but hey, I have a toddler and job hunt in my spare time, so forgive me!

I want to write about an event Kurt, Kelsey and I went to in August. At their wonderful, warm and friendly home. We were also fortunate enough to meet her, her, her and her 2 beautiful children , and them (I love doing that! ;)

We also met some fabulous and fun people that aren't bloggers (not everyone fabulous has a just feels that way lately!)

Kelsey had a great time with Leah, Chloe and the very very handsome Mr. Mason. Heather's Mom and Sister were fabulous with all the kids!

John and Heather are great people! Just the kind of new friends you want to meet! And if you've never checked out Heather's blog you should...amazingly interesting, funny, talented couple. Heather is a musician, a great writer, a fabulous cook, fellow gardener and home improvement junkie and cat lover. Just the kind of person that when you meet her you feel you know her all your life. And check out her blog to see her brand new "rockin' it like a Porn Star" do! :)

Heather and John put out a spread of delisiousness that made you glad to be a foodie! My favorite was the spare ribs! OMG!!!!! The best I can ever remember having (sorry Mom!) and Heather has the recipe on her website (hunt around...I dare you!) I've made them twice since I had them at her easy and good!

I was very impressed with all the families we met that lovely Saturday. I would be proud to call each and everyone of them my friends :) Hopefully we can meet again soon.

I know the wait for referral is torturously slow right now. I am so very sorry for that...the wait really sucks no matter what. All I can offer is my friendship, a hug and the view of what the other side of the tunnel looks like.

So, thank you again for inviting us to your home, John and Heather. We really enjoyed ourselves and getting to know you. Next time, it's at the Hoppe house!
JoAnn, Kurt and Kelsey

p.s. Heather took all these photos! I claim NOTHING!

It was a great day, and an even better reminder of why we are in this crazy IA world. I loved meeting your family and everyone else. Kelsey is such a wonderful, beautiful little girl, and I loved having the time to play with her. I hope we can all meet up again one day!!
