I’m not huge on character stuff, but I had to have these because not only are the girls Frozen crazy, they say Family Forever! I love these sweet girls!
My apologies for not sending more updates, after our first day in Hefei, I struggled to get on my blog or Facebook…we arrived in Guangzhou last night and we are well connected here so I promise to update soon! We will spend the next week here getting Emma’s medical done and visa for the US completed. We are leaving now to go […]
Emma’s adoption was finalized this morning! We are completely in love with her!
I can’t believe that its almost time, in just under 4 hours we will meet our precious Emma Grace. (that’s between 7:45-8:15pm Texas time) Me and the girls are wide awake…who can sleep when your life is about to change forever? Jay can, thats who! Pray, pray, pray for Emma, in an hour she will be headed to Hefei (where we are, its the capital of her province) it will take her over 2.5 hours to get here. Also, pray for me and Amelia, we are so sleep deprived we are trying to get sick…pray for our congestion to be gone and for us all to sleep great tonight! McMot just asked that y’all pray that she gets back into the same class when we get home and that Amelia and Emma get along well. (I love this sweet girl!)
Its been a while…sorry for that. Life tends to get in the way! But now seems like a perfect time to jump back into blogging. Just as we get Amelia out of diapers, we think its time to add to our crew. As most of you know, we are in the middle of our second adoption for our baby girl from […]
If you stopped by today you would find: Food on the floor…in addition to cheerios strewn about! A layer of dust on most of our furniture. A pile of clothes that either needed to be washed or folded & put away. A pile of c.r.a.p. (McKayla we don’t say that word!) in my bedroom that still needs to be unpacked […]
In 3 hours we will be boarding our plane: 2 stops and 21.5 short hours later we will land in Houston! Please pray that it goes well! With Amelia being under 2, we opted not to get her a seat…why pay for one if you don’t have to, that was my practical side that made that decision, I could just beat that side of me up right about now. So we are hoping for a bassinet seat!! There is nothing Miss Independent could love less than to sit in my lap the entire way. I just wanted to answer a few questions that I know many of you have: When do you arrive in Houston? Can we come to the airport? We land at Houston Intercontinental at 4:44pm on December 1st, we clear customs in LA, so we should be in baggage claim area by 5pm. We would love to hug your neck, so yes come see Amelia in person…I’ll do you one better, some of our family built a monstrosity in our backyard last weekend, so if you can’t make the airport scene, join us in our backyard for the big reveal for the girls. Although, as much as we would love for you to stay for hours while we rehash every detail of our trip, we are going to keep the backyard party to one hour so we can get the girls fed and to bed at a […]
Have you seen Kung Fu Panda 2? No…seriously? It’s a pretty sweet movie! For those of you haven’t (you need to!) allow me to catch you up. In the 1st movie, Po the Panda becomes the Kung Fu Warrior in China – which is a big deal and everyone was pretty disappointed that he was chosen, because he is a […]
