About a month ago I posted about putting all the girls in one room. The vote was 21-0- put them all together. Hubby and I completely agreed with all the reasons you stated! At that time we did have a little something up our sleeve but God has intervened in a huge and wonderful way and what may have been is not going to be. In other words at this point I do not need to take apart the pink room. That is the room we had planned to put our new daughters in and since we don't currently need to "change it" we feel like maybe we should go ahead and use it. It also saves us money because it is close to being done (it was Anna's room until she moved in with Sarah). We don't need to buy the bunk beds (yet). Hopefully in the not so far away future we will need to make these changes but not yet.
So as it stands now Sarah and Anna will be in the green room and Emma and Ellie will be in the pink room. We need to move around clothes and add a few things to the pink room to get it all ready but for the most part we are close to being done.
If we see any problems brewing with the troops we may make a quick change and get them all together or if God is going to send us more blessings sooner than we think we will be buying those bunk beds real quick!
We have also decided (thank you all for your opinions/ advice/ votes) to keep the girls names as planned. Emma Joy and Ella Mei (Ellie). I loved all that you said but someone asked if I could honestly look at them and call them by a different name- this late in the game. You know what- I can't... They are Emma and Ellie! Even thought I love the names Emily and Elizabeth that is not who they are... Thanks for your help!
It is Thankful Thursday and you know I am just feeling so so thankful to our dear God!
I am continuously amazed by him and oh, so grateful for answered prayer.
I am so thankful for our two treasures in China and so looking forward to meeting them!
Today I did one mile on the treadmill- I'm thankful to have the moment to do that!
I cancelled my colonoscopy appt (for the third time)- I'm thankful for that ;-)
I'm thankful they are still nice to me after canceling at the last possible moment 3 times in a row. I was so glad to get their answering machine and not a person when I cancelled! Of course they kindly called back and said they got the message and would I like to reschedule! If I were them I'd throw my file right out the window!
