We're Back!

Well, we made it home safe and sound.  It's a little after four in the morning, and while the girls are up playing in their room together, I am making them breakfast.  Cassie is a little on the picky side, so it's going to be rice and soy sauce, scrambled eggs, tangerines and grapes.  Although, Cassie is so excited i don't know how much she will actually eat.  I walked her through the house last night and showed her every room while Randy and our friends the Shafers were unloading our luggage, and in every room she would exclaim, "Wooooooo" and then give me a great big smile.  

I will post later, but right now i kinda have my hands full.

  5. Cheryl! I am just catching up on your blog. I am so happy for you guys and you are in my prayers for a smooth-as-possible-transition. I know you will have some "moments", but do not allow the enemy to steal your joy. I'm also praying for Sonya because this is quite a change for her too. Every time we've brought a baby home from the hospital, it takes some adjusting. Even though the kids are always thrilled to have a new baby, it's still hard on them to a certain degree. Your time is now divided, but the room in your heart somehow multiplies. It's miraculous. I can't wait to follow along on this journey with you!

  6. Home for Christmas - AWESOME! God is good. Love seeing pictures and hearing your story. Congratulations and Merry Christmas!!
