New Pictures!!!

Hello Everyone,

Today was a busy day, got the kids off to school, went and ran outside which was beautiful! Came home and Joe was cleaning out the garage! I got a lot of good laughs because I don't think he realized what he was getting into when he asked me to help! We had things in the garage that we had not yet unpacked from when we built the house 2 years ago! So I was going through tubs and bags and boxes reminiscing about everything and asking Joe to look at EVERYTHING I pulled out! He finally had it and said, "I don't have to look at everything you get out!" He just was not appreciating the memories!!! And he kept making me throw stuff away, he said he heard enough that it was "Ella's first" we didn't need to keep it. And he made me get rid of my chunky heeled shoes! What if they come back in style! He said he'd buy me new ones! You all remember that when the time comes!:) Anyway, he did a great job! I retired quickly!

Grammy came to take Maya to the library and so I had a couple of hours to myself, I did my Bible study and then took a nap. When I woke up I checked my email and to my surprise there were new pictures of little man in better resolution. So we actually got to see what he looks like and let me tell you, I think he may be a girl!!! He is beautiful, he has the most precious droopy lips and ears! I want to squeeze him. I can't wait to get him home and put him in some cute clean clothes. He had a girls sleeper on with stains all over it! It breaks my heart.

I am really trying to not get too wrapped up in getting him home, but seeing his picture is making it really hard. So remember to pray for our court date in Ethiopia on May 4. If we pass court that day we will travel to get him 6-8 weeks from that date! Lord please have favor on us! Have a great night!

  1. PS- I had to draw the line at my wedding dress! I told him that was NOT to be thrown away and then proceeded to ask him if he remembered me in it! Poor Joe!
