BIG UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome news! The pilot announced, "Ladies and Gentlemen, just wanted to let you know that we were conducting a test and that the plane's auto pilot computer landed the plane!" Now John and Dennis are in the car driving home! Praise God.

The drive is three hours folks, but don't worry, John is running on adrenaline--- I can hear in his voice how excited he is to be in the car driving. His spirits are high, and I am just so thankful that they are on the last stretch home. Dennis did really well this last flight...... slept most of the way.... Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meanwhile, we are here steadily preparing for their arrival.


The kids made welcome home banners.

And they did it with such enthusiasm!


Didn't they do a great job?!!!!!!!!!!!!


And here I am nesting like crazy.........hey wait a minute, I thought I vacuumed two days ago.


Caleb on dish duty.......... this Mama needs the kitchen to sparkle for her new arrival. I wish I could truly understand the nesting concept because I have had it with each and every child, and yet I knew back when I had my first child they don't even notice.... LOL.


I've even hung his picture.

Can you tell how excited we all are for Daddy and Dennis to just hurry up and be here?

Hi I've been watching your adoption, but never commented, but I just had to tell you on looking at the photos of Dennis that he's just gorgous - there's something about him that just draws you! I love the banners your family made to welcome home their daddy & new brother! I hope you are all having a very special time together!

You and John are so inspiring.
