oh my word- it is getting closer by the minute!

1. Airplane tickets have been purchased
2. Consulate appointment has been scheduled
3. Family Medical Leave forms have been turned in
4. Husband is starting to freak out about things out of his control
5. We are in for the trip of a lifetime. So glad that family is going with us.
these were supposed to be my five things I am thankful for today, but #4 is nothing to be thankful for, really! I will come up with something else, like my last faculty meeting of the year was yesterday.
Now people are starting to give us so many wonderful things. We have had many people offer to give us baby showers- I still think they need to be after Stella is here- it seems more practical.
We are so thankful for our friends- we have really been blessed with some good ones.

Travel Date? Any one else?

CCAI called this afternoon, and gave us a travel date- oh. my. goodness.
Is there any else from our region who got this call today? We talked with another family after the conference call- and now we are REALLY starting to get excited!
Do you know how sweet it is to put little, tiny, pink clothes in that big suitcase? :)

I would like to introduce you all to Stella Frances Parker. her birthday is April 16, 2008- very close to my father's birthday, which I always hoped for.

the home stretch?!

Okay- I have been holding off posting for a while, because I just hate it when we get out hopes up. Rumor Queen , as well as our agency, has verified that our L.I.D. has been included in this batch. Oh. My. Word.
Our agency says that they should get Stella's picture and information early this week. Clark is sure that we will get it on the same day they do, but I am trying not to count on that, because it will sure be a long day at school. It will be a long day, any way, just thinking about her.
This tiny bit of snow today was exciting for Sam- he did not understand why it left while we were in church, though. He wanted to skip Sunday School, and go home to throw snow-balls at his father. It was pretty while it lasted.
I am working on learning how to post photos on here, so I can put our referral photo up. Oh my gosh- that sounds so exciting, don't you think?!
