  1. I have no words, only inarticulate shouts of joy that I don't know how to spell. Godspeed, dear one.

    (Oh, and of course -- "hyper" and, unfortunately, "wiper.")

  2. Oh I LOVE those little bear suits - ha ha ha! I can't wait to see the babies in those.

    Safe travels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I'm in love with those owls. I really am.

    Michael has promised to buy me owl crib bedding the day that we pass our homestudy. (fingers crossed)

    Have a beautiful and memorable trip!

    and the superman outfit? Love it. Michael has a superman shirt, and I had to buy a superman onesie a few weeks back for one of our kiddos.

  4. I am grinning ear to ear here! Go git them babies!!!


  5. Okay the bearsuits and the homemade owls - crazy awesomeness. Looooove them. (I wish the English language had like 50 words synonymous with and equally as meaningful as the word "love" right...)

    ADORE them. You.Are.Ready.



  6. You sure do "got it!" Loved it! It's so fun to see months/years of preparation finally reach a destination ... caring for your sweet babes!

    Travel blessings to you!

  7. I thought wiper too. The owls are Fab-Boo. Go then, get them.

  8. Woohoo! You definitely look prepared. Have a safe trip. Can't wait to hear that the babies are home with you!

  9. Loving all of the cute goodies for the babies! So exciting that they will soon be in your arms again!

  10. so fun!! congrats and best wishes!!!! thanks for following our story as well. whoo!

  11. Yay for you, and J & those babies finally coming home all at the same time! (How long do you think?)

    And all that stuff just reinforces that I made the right decision for me adopting an older child. It wears me out just looking at it.

  12. I am so so so happy for you!!!! Good luck and keep us all updated! Thinking of you and those beautiful babies ALWAYS.

  13. yay! Diaper- hyper! OR, my verification word, which is pycler. That rhymes, right?? I am so happy for you. Are you doing the happy dance non-stop?

    I love the howls that you made.

    Hope you have safe travels. Can't wait to see pics of those babes.

  14. Great post! Congrats congrats!!! Can't wait to hear about the trip!

    Diaper could rhyme with "wiper"
    "sniper" "pied piper"

    none of which work reall well in your post. :)

  15. WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOO!! I am so excited! (And I LOVE the bear suits- they grow so quickly... enjoy it while you can!) hugs and best wishes!



Over to you!
