I did something spontaneous today. I cut my hair really short. You can blame it on past pictures. See-- I got out my scrapbook supplies to make a bunch of cards and found two of my old scrapbooks.
I used to scrapbook all the time. And then I sort of just stopped doing it. Once in a while I or the girls will get out the supplies, but not often enough.
Check out some of our family pictures pre-blogging days.
Yes, we had swimsuits on.
I love this picture-- and it is what inspired me to cut my hair today.
Cutting my hair had been on my mind since court because Natalie's hair was so short the last time I saw her, but I had yet to find time. Well, I found time today (my Mom's here) and now I can grow my hair out with my new daughter.
With only 18 days until my Mom and I leave for Bulgaria, I have been trying to get everything that I want to do-- done. Slowly but surely I am crossing things off my list.
I made this little book with pictures from our first trip to take with me. It has lots of pictures of John in it so Natalie can get familiar with his face since he won't be there with me.
(I used a Shutterfly coupon so the book was free! How cool is that?)
I finally replaced the lens on my nice camera. It was dropped during our first trip in Bulgaria, and the auto focus had stopped working. Now I have my camera for the 2nd trip!
We are getting ahead in school work so my homeschooled kids won't fall behind when I am gone.
I trimmed our big Pepper Tree.
Don't ask me why. (There is no rhyme or reason as to what I want to accomplish when I am nesting.)
Thank you again to everyone who has supported us in the adoption of Natalie.
We feel the love.
A wonderful, loving lady from church made this gorgeous quilt and doll for Natalie.
Throughout this journey we have felt your support spiritually, emotionally, and financially.
As we get ready to bring home our little girl, we are in awe of the continued blessings from all of you. Thank you for your outpouring of love.
