Shopping & Such

We went and picked up a few items for Miss Sophie yesterday. We are able to send small packages with a few flat items with the weekly FedEx that Holt sends to Vietnam. Our little girl truly lives up to that! She is now 17 months old and is wearing 9 month old clothes so we bought some that would fit her now and a few that she can grow into. We also picked up a digital voice recorder so that we can read books and then send the recorder over so that she can hear our voices. Other PAPs have done similar things too.
Next week we will begin getting her room ready. We went and picked out paints which are pink air and heath green. We will have a white chair rail seperating the two with the pink on top.
Looking forward to the day when it is all ready to
go for her. I know that Trish is having fun with it.
She has been looking forward to decorating her
room for the longest time. She said she never thought she would do pink and green but that is what it has turned into!

How much fun you both will have in the next few months getting ready for Sophie to come home. I know how much Tricia likes to shop. Sophie is going to be such a blessing and she is going to be loved so much by all of her family. I am looking forward to shopping for our grandaughter too. We are so excited. Love Grandma and Grandad

AMEN to that!!!! I have been going crazy getting Mya's room ready and bought her a bunch of stuff to send to Vietnam. I really really hope we will be traveling to get our little angels together! I am also praying that we both have a quick and easy travel approval!!! Keep enjoying every minute of this!!
