Thanks So Much!
All of the warm wishes and kind words that were written after we passed court were such a blessing to our family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was truly touched.

Yesterday my sister and niece had an adoption shower for our family. We received lots of things for the kids. Levi got a brand new bike from a neighbor as well as a cool Star Wars blanket. People were so kind and we feel so blessed. I can't wait to put Amelia in all her cute new clothes!

I would share some photo's except I cant find my cable to download them to the computer. My life is kind of crazy right now. Paige and Amelia's room is torn apart and all the contents are in the upstairs hall due to the paint and wallpaper that has just been put in there.

Zachary's drivers license still has not come. Don't get me started on trying to deal with the DMV. Ugh. Supposedly we should get it this week. Remember, he has to be fingerprinted before they will give us our updated approval? I'm feeling a little sick to my stomach knowing this could delay our going to pick the kids up in January. Still trying not to freak out, however, the battle may be lost on that front if the license is not in the mailbox tomorrow. Prayers would be greatly appreciated regarding this situation.

I am trying to make a little photo book for my friend Missy to take to Levi in Ethiopia next week. It is really hard to pick out a picture of yourself when you know this will be the first image your child has of his new mommy. Another thing I am stressing myself out over. Pretty ridiculous, right?

I am so happy that Missy will be with the kids over Christmas and able to give them a few small gifts from us. She will also be able to take pictures which will be wonderful.

So, basically I will be packing and planning and stressing for the next six weeks. I am sooo excited!

Can I tell you a secret Internet friends?

Don't tell my kids but I have not bought one Christmas gift for them yet. This is so out of character for me. I usually am done early. The kids asked why there wasn't anything under the tree yet. You know, like for Grandma or ANYONE? I just sort of evaded the question, not wanting to lie and all.

I guess I'll try and get a little shopping done this week. Maybe there are better sales the longer you wait. One can only hope.

I would totally stress about picking out my picture too. That's not strange at all! :)

Good luck getting the Christmas shopping done!!!

Oh my. I'm so with you on the stress thing. When we were making up a book for our Li'l Empress, I changed my mind a hundred times or more :)

As for the shopping, I JUST started Friday night. And got precious little accomplished compared to my list :( I'm attacking it during nap times this week - thank goodness the boys will be here so I can use that time. Otherwise, I'd be out after dark every night for the next two weeks.

Praying that you get the driver's license/fingerprint approval issue resolved really soon. And don't worry about the Christmas shopping. I typically never start until 2 weeks before Christmas - but this year I'm already done. Go figure!

Julie- I am praying everything is falling into place for you. Wanted to ask you a favor and see if you would take pics of our little guy for us when you travel. You can email me privately at cd(dot)hubbard(at)yahoo(dot)com. Thanks so much!
