2 weeks

The blog union was amazing!  It was incredible to look around and see many little Ethiopian beauties everywhere.  I loved meeting new people and hanging out with friends.  What a joy.  The weekend went by really quickly and now we are back home and have about 2 weeks to pull everything together!!

Here are a few pics from lovely California. (I don't have many on my camera and am waiting to get pics from others) The kids are seriously questioning why we live in Texas as it was 107 when we got off the plane. :)

Pam, thank you for being an amazingly gracious hostess to our crew!! It felt like home in many ways being with your crew. :)

Two weeks will fly by is right! That list will be a blessing if you use it! I've also got daily lists from a week ago! I can't even imagine having four kiddos to pack for on top of you three!! :0

You're totally crazy! And if you're like me (boy I hope not) you always feel the need to have a few "new somethings" for a trip!

Oh, I'm so excited for you!

I love the FEW (uhhmmm) pictures that you DO have! You must have been too busy having fun to take pics!!

We moped around our house Monday morning knowing you were flying home... What a wonderful time we had with all of you! You six are very dear, and I can hardly wait to see precious little Abe added into your family photos. I wish we could be there at the airport for your homecoming. We'll be there in spirit!

We love you, miss you, and look forward to next time, sister!

As soon as I can I'll get a disc to you of the weekend photos. Could you email me the ones from Thursday night, too?

Your Abe is so cute. (Love the hair) I love reading everyone's journey. I found your blog through others. Thanks for sharing. We are adopting from Korea. Just started but can't wait until we are that close to holding our baby girl. Blessings,
