The Good, the Bad, and the Blessed.

Where has the time gone? November? Really? I can't tell you how much I love the holiday season. This year will be especially special. We have 9 more weeks left until our baby boy will arrive! (holy crap) I'm so excited for this little guy to be here! I already can't wait to show him off to the world, the ultrasound pictures just don't cut it! With Christmas and Thanksgiving I already know the next 2 months will fly by! If you think this last 7 months went by fast, let me tell you about the last year and half! Missy will be home December 14th! Oh I can't wait to see her again! And she'll be seeing a lot more of me with a big belly! I'm so thrilled she will be here for her nephew!

Alrighty so here's what's been happening with us Hofmann's lately...

First and foremost Curtis and I and our precious baby became an eternal family on October 27th. It was such a special day! It was the best decision we could have made for our little family. I love Curtis so much and want more than anything to spend the rest of eternity with him. I know we will be blessed for our efforts and hard work to make it to the temple.

We did receive some news about our baby earlier that week while at the 3D ultrasound. They found that he has a cleft lip, but they do not know the extent of it unless we decide to do a level 2 ultrasound. I didn't like the sound of it, I imagined my little boy to come to us perfect! It wasn't easy to think about while I drove back to work alone. But with many many reassurances from friends and family I didn't make something so small and fixable a big issue. When I told Curtis the news that night he could care less what our child looked like, he was still excited for his son. I felt 100% better about the whole situation the next day. Out of everything that could have been wrong with him we consider ourselves to be pretty lucky. So we look at the good part, knowing we still have a healthy and strong little boy. And know that he will be that much more special to us.

So the 1st of October Curtis and I took up residence with my G & G (Grannie & Grandpa). And the dogs with my mom, and the rest of our stuff in a storage. Our house would be our October 7th!! Whoohoooo....
Hold the celebration folks! It's been almost 5 weeks since, and STILL no house. I knew it was too good to be true. Of course we are all done on our half, It's the owners of the house (HUD) who owe a hefty HOA fee that still has not been paid. SO, until that fee has been paid, we have no house. :( Not fair if you ask me. They aren't the ones living out of a suit case with only a quarter of their possessions at their G&G's home with a baby on the way it 2 months!! Don't make me come down there!!
Can you tell my patience is running out? At first I was ok with the wait. I figured we were saving money, but the closer and closer it gets to Christmas time, I panic. I want to decorate my baby's room. I want a backyard for by dogs. I want our OWN place. Frustrating I tell ya! But our wait will continue, until we find out Heavenly Father has something else in store for us.
In the mean time we do enjoy G&G's company and all they have provided for us.

Pictures to conclude...
