When things calm down I'll tell you what we went thru to get to that BK! There was nothing like it!!! Oh, the flight. It is going to be smooth sailing! Effortless, calm, peaceful! That's our prayer. A tired little love bug headin for home with her Mama and Daddy! No noise from other babies to disturb her and only the kindest of flight attendants! The arms waiting to hug you and the smiles that won't stop - it's all tomorrow! You're almost here! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!!!! Love you!!!

I am so excited for you all and your family! I know the boys are anxious-I've been talking to Bren each day at school and his smile continues to grow larger each day. You are continually in my prayers!

Yay! Can't wait to meet Lily in person! I asked Bryson if he was excited about tomorrow because he was bouncing off the walls! While smiling from ear to ear and vigorously shaking his head up and down, he said, "Nah"! LOL Best wishes on the flight and lots of Love!
