HOME!!!!

I wanted to write a quick post and let everyone know that we are HOME safe and sound! The girls did an AMAZING job on the trip!!!!!!!!! They were beyond better than I expected!!!! We arrived late Wednesday night at the airport and didn't get home until early Thursday morning home home. Yesterday (Thursday) was a busy day. The girls had lots of visitors and we went and visited some friends. They loved all their visitors. They both have had a permanent smile attached to their face since we arrived home. They love all their toys and independence. They HATE the dog lol so we are introducing him to them a little at a time. We will see how this goes. I will keep you updated on that. The girls were so exhausted from their long trip and busy day yesterday that they went to bed at 7 last night and Johannah slept until 6:50 this morning and it is 7:49 a.m. right now and Ellee is still asleep. Mommy went to bed at 8:30 last night because I was exhausted too.
Here are a few pictures from our trip home and being home! If you would like a link to see all the pictures please leave a comment with your email addy and I will send you the pics from Wednesday and Thursday.

Oh I'm so late on things these days ! Happy Day for all of you! Everyone looks so happy to be home. We'll be praying for a smooth adjustment for you all. I remember that first week was a killer with jet lag. Madeline was petrified of our dog too, but now loves him. take it easy and get plenty of rest. Love,
Carolyn

My absolute favorite post so far - HOME!!!! :-) I want photos, I want photos! hehe
I always think it is funny how the kids seem to look different when I see photos of them at home - why is that? It must be because they are orphans no more - just kids! I just love to see them in their own rooms with their own toys - and their own mommys and daddys - just the best ever. So here is to lots and lots of happy happy times ahead.
