9 days

9 days until Ezra and Noah’s court date.  Since I am a worry wort, I thought I would share 9 prayer requests. 1.  That the boys stay healthy 2.  That all the paperwork is done correctly and turned in on time for court and that we pass on the first try 3.  That we receive…



10 days

It’s only 10 days till Noah & Ezra’s court date. I thought I would share 10 big things we are looking forward to (in no real order). finally holding you boys hearing you giggle and make goofy baby noises seeing you discover new things for the first time napping on the couch with you seeing…



Baby Shower #2

Me and the cloth diaper cake Yesterday I had a wonderful baby shower and received some wonderful things for the boys.  I had a great time celebrating the soon to be arrival of Noah and Ezra. Of course, a few games were played.  The most entertaining being the toilet paper diaper game. The winners (they…



Two Weeks!

OMG I have been freaking out lately.  Only two weeks until court and then after that two weeks, one day until we travel!  I am getting so excited, anxious, and nervous.  I am starting to feel a little unprepared, even though we have been preparing and waiting forever, I don’t feel like I know enough…



Earth Day

I am going to be honest, I don’t really do anything for Earth Day. I looked I didn’t even do a post last year. It’s not that I don’t care, but that to me every day is Earth Day. I strive each and every day to take care and be a good steward of the…



Crazy, Just Crazy



18 days, 33 days

18 days until our court date!  33 days until we potentially travel, wow that is coming up quick.  Please pray that we pass court on May 8 and that our travel dates stay the same.  Right now we tentatively have an Embassy Appointment on May 28, if it doesn’t happen that day it could be…



new wheels times 2

We did get a new (to us) car. One of just a few cars out there that fit the 2 rear facing kids and me.  The 03 4runner. Its a 4×4 and a v8 (i know, I know, you are thinking gas hog). Its actually pretty fuel efficient for its size. So far we are getting 21mpg…



will green hippies judge us?

If we drive an SUV? I know, I know, we are all about being green, environmentally friendly, bike ridding, organic garden growing, line drying hippies. But in a sad reality, most cars dont fit twins with rear facing car seats, and 6′ 3″ drivers. Nope, no station wagon, mid size car, cross over SUV works. Its down…



25 days and a little glitch

Only 25 days until court!  I am getting more excited and anxious every day.  We are trying to get everything prepared and it is keeping us pretty busy.  We went to the doctor this morning to get the last of our travel vaccinations and I am sick (nasty cold) so she said I should wait…



Midnight Feedings

When we tell people how old the boys will be when we come home, they are quick to say, “Oh good, they will be sleeping through the night.”  Or something like that.  While we hope that they will sleep through the night there is no guarantee that they will. For the next couple of weeks…



One month!!!

I am starting to feel like this might actually happen!  We have been keeping ourselves busy preparing for the boys and doing stuff we think we won’t have time for once they are here.  The nursery is pretty much ready, house projects are getting done, and we are trying to have as much time together…
