Busy Little Bee's

I know I haven't blogged much in the past couple of weeks, but we have been getting some serious stuff done around here. 

In the past 2 weeks we have painted the nursery, put together a crib, cleaned the garage, had a garage sale, finished the nursery (pics coming soon), put together 4 bookcases, finished our adoption videos, assembled a new entertainment center (one more baby friendly with doors), and done some serious spring-like cleaning ! 

It has been so nice to get somethings off of "the list".

Red walls+ paint with primer+ 4 coats= Blue walls

The skills I acquired through my summer painting job when I was in high school and college have proven very helpful.  It also reminds me how much I hate to paint!

I think he has it covered!

Good job guys!  So what if you took you 4 times to get the hinges on the door the correct way.  We won't tell anyone:)

You would think that getting all of this stuff done would put me at ease.  Now I have consumed myself with preparing for the trip.  I seriously have written and rewritten a list about 27 times of things we need to pack!

I will say that I am ever so thankful for this blogging community right now.  Whether it be by looking at the blogs of those who have traveled ahead of us or talking to those that will be traveling with, it has kept me sane!  I can not WAIT to meet all of you who we are traveling with!  It is going to be such a fun time!  I feel like I already know so many of you as I have stalked your blog over and over throughout our journey!  It is going to be a blast!

We are asking that you continue to pray for our MOWA date on the 30th, court on Oct 12th, a quick embassy appointment following court, and safe travels for all of us picking up our babies!

29 days until Ethiopia people! :)
