This past week was very busy. Last Saturday, our church gave us a baby shower. It was wonderful. It was a cook out at the pavilion which they decorated with baby Winnie the Pooh characters. They had a Winnie the Pooh cake for us. The bottom layer was a sheet cake. The top layer was Winnie the Pooh. We were able to save the top of the cake to use for Michael's first birthday home with us. We received so many wonderful gifts, but the greatest gift is knowing what a wonderful church family we have. They really went out of their way to make us feel special. (I will post pictures when I have them. Bill's uncle, David, took them for us.)
Monday was a very stressful day. Our LOA was supposed to arrive by UPS early AM delivery. Bill left work early to pick it up at the house and bring it to my office, because we had to sign it and send it to our agency overnight early AM delivery. It has to be to them by Tuesday morning. If it was late, we would hold up 14 other families. When Bill arrived at the house, the package was not there. After many frantic phone calls, we found out that early AM delivery to our zip code is anywhere between 9 a.m.- 7 p.m.! Bill waited and waited. He was on the porch with his keys in hand when the UPS truck came around the corner. He met the UPS man at the end of the driveway. I think he may have hugged him if he wasn't in such a hurry to meet me. We ended up meeting at Kinko's. We signed, copied, and Fed Exed the package.
The rest of the week went pretty smoothly. We spent today working on Michael's room. It is almost done. I will post pictures when we have it finished. I also worked on packing for our trip. We are packing somethings early, so we don't have to rush when we get the call telling us when we are going to China.
I am going to try to update the blog at least once a week. When we are in China, I will try to update it daily or as much as possible.
