~~Happy 5th Birthday~~

Today is Angie's birthday how I wish we all could be with her on this special day. Gavin and Tyler woke up this morning and sang Happy Birthday to her, which was so sweet. They helped set up a doll house for her and a kitchen set

We are starting to make lists and pack for the trip to bring Angie home! The USCIS approval letter has been apostled and ready to go. The next puzzle piece is the actually travel dates and hopefully our facilitator will get a chance to ask for them the first week of September.

Happy Birthday Princess ~ We hope to be with you soon~

Round two done

Our older son Gavin also had to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. Luckily he was old enough to do same day surgery and did not have to stay the night. Gavin was a dream to take care of after surgery and now a week later he is feeling a lot better.

Adoption update

We received great news that our information was officially submitted to the adoption officials at the end of July.

Our orphan petition approval letter also came this week.

Things are definitely coming together and hopefully we will get a fall travel date.

The Girly room revealed

It was nice seeing the boys work together to help/play with the painting of Angie's room. They want her home just as bad as Clint and I do. Here are some before, during and after photo's.

It is hard to tell from the photo's that there are fairies sitting on the trees.

~Dossier update~

Our Dossier will be translated now and submitted at the end of July!!! So hopefully we will hear about travel dates in September.

We have been working on Angie's room, painting and decorating. Gavin picked the colors purple and pink for the walls. The room had a Dr. Seuss theme before so we kept a few of the same elements but made them girly! I still need to order some fairy wall stickers and it should be done. (Gee I really hope Angie is a girly girl)

Hopefully I will be able to post some before and after pictures soon.

How July is going....

Our little guy Tyler is recovering from surgery.

He had to have his tonsils and adenoids removed plus both ears drained. His surgery went well, but he did scare his recovery nurse. Tyler holds his breath when he is mad. It is something that he has always done. In recovery, the nurses were trying to calm him down from thrashing and he had Oxygen on because his levels would drop real low and set the alarms off. To us this is normal Tyler!! He hates to be woken up and yes at home he thrashes around and gets all worked up and quits breathing for awhile when he has to get up before he wants to. So we made the nurses feel better by letting them know this is normal, but I think they felt bad for us!! I am so dreading getting this child ready for school in time when he gets older.

Here are some photos from our hospital stay:
