"Baby" shower and More :)

Finally an update! I know that is what most of you are thinking cause I was too lol 2 of our wonderful friends held a "baby" shower for us at church today. The girls were so excited! They ripped into the paper and tore out the tissue paper like pros hehe and Johannah would get so upset when it was Ellee's turn to open a present and she would have to wait. So we had to come up with a different plan where they both opened a gift. I just now finally got to see what all they received lol The got all of the cutest little outfits, and games and puzzles, and our pastor's wife came by tonight and dropped off another gift for them with towels, washcloths, and the cutest little bath toys that they are going to absolutely love! They finally got to wear the "coming home" outfits that we bought when we first started the adoption process. Since they didn't get to wear them to come home in, I decided to wait until today. :)
Friday we went to pick up Andrew's kiddos, and it was their first time to meet Ellee and Johannah, and I thought Bailey (Andrew's daughter) wouldn't wait until the car stopped before she jumped out. They were both so excited to see their new little sisters. As soon as we got home Bailey played dress-up with them. Derek (Andrew's son) is very protective of the girls already, and he loves to play with them. They are both great big brother and big sister!!!
This weekend has been Great and we are so Blessed!!! God has been so good to us and has blessed us more than we could ever imagine!!!
