We have a location!!

We finally found a church to have the wedding at! It is so beautiful and has a history too! It has stained glass windows and is on a winding country road that has trees meeting at the top over the road! Now we still have so much to go but at least we know where it will be the day and sort of the time! I got to pass out candy for Halloween tonight for the first time in over 20 years! We have lived in the country for all those years and never had any goblins. I had so much fun! They were dressed up so cute! I let them help themselves and they couldn't believe it! They thought they had hit the jack pot! Oh to be young again! More later!

Baby Day!

I will get to see the babies today! I am so excited! I think they are too. KB called me several times yesterday, she wanted me to know that it was just one more day! I can't wait to see all of them. I also can't forget that the braces go on tomorrow! Here goes another old lady looking like a teen! I hope they aren't noticeable! I don't know how you can hide a full mouth of shining metal though. I almost forgot about the "wedding dress" trip! We went yesterday for the first try at the special dress. We were helping ourselves and couldn't find anything that was just standing out, and then the sales lady says "all these dresses from here down have been marked down to $100 dollars", we started pulling them down and headed to the dressing room! We tried to really love them but after we would have to rip them apart and start all over with the dress, it wouldn't have been a bargin anymore! Oh well we tried! We have to keep looking and looking until we find it! We just don't have too long to look! We will survive! We may have a few scars after, but we will make it!
More later, I've got to get ready for the babies!

Where did I put my mind?

Okay this is the day we have waited for and now that is it here...OH MY GOODNESS! There is so much to do. I know what to do but everything I know is back home not here. This will be a new learning experience! I have always said I love challenges but I'm not sure about this one!
On top of all this the People Department called and said I would be in the next class that would go to training, okay that sounds great, when will the next class be? Oh probably Dec. OH NO! Okay I won't get excited, I will put my big girl panties on and deal with it right? I think I want to put them over my head and run! I will have to post pone the Dec. class and wait for the next one. Wow! That was easy to decide now let's hope it is allowable. I will be going to see the babies soon and I actually think they are as excited about seeing me as I am them! I don't know if their parents are as excited! LOL! I hope they are. We are going to have fun! I will be getting braces put on and I think it's silly that an old woman like me has to have braces and now I will have wedding pictures with them! UGH! Oh I just had a thought, I have noticed people that wear braces their lips seem to be more full and thicker, I could possibly have full lips for the wedding pictures! YEA! Oh wait the pictures aren't about the mother of the bride, I forgot it's about the bride! Phew! I almost had a panic attack there for a minute! It will be a time for some great family pictures. More later, maybe!

There is a ring and a date!

We have a date and a ring! We just need a place the right time and lots of money!! We also need to start praying for the best weather for traveling! It will be asking a lot from our families and friends to drive long distance to share in the wedding! Being in Dec. also makes for yukee weather! We think we might have found a house pretty close for them! There still are a lot of questions left to answer but we have to lean on the Lord and allow him to work in our lives and trust him!
