submitted!!

I can't believe it, we were submitted today! I can't believe in a few short weeks I'm going to have a girl!!
AAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!
Its amazing. I'm going to go buy a small girl suitcase or duffel to take her clothes over. Of course I'm going to be making sure she has a bow for each outfit. Yes, I'll be one of those moms!

Yesterday we went to another DS get together. Finally we made it to one. Met new friends, and had a great time!


Now that I know that we are submitted, I'm a little freaked out about the fundraising. I've been so crazy lately that we haven't thought about it at all!
The yard sale is next Saturday, the 28th. If you have anything to donate to that, we'd love it. You can donate yard sale items, anything for the food, baked goods for the bake sale, or even just money in the chipin for us to buy those items.
I've also had a few people want to donate things, so we may have another small auction. So if you want to donate something to the auction, please email me.

We are getting down to the wire here, help us get Makayla home!!

As the mother of a very girly girl I learned quickly that bows get expensive. I make my daughters bows. Cheap, quick, easy. All you need is ribbon, alligator clips, and a glue gun. The website I learned all of my styles from is below. It provides free step by step instructions to make all kinds of bows.

That is great!!

So I talked to my sister and she would be able to donate two sessions. Sorry I forgot to get back to you on that. So you can do that on your blog or whatever. Also I'm actually kind of glad you moved the yard sale to the 28th. My sewing machine broke so I haven't been able to get what I need done. So hopefully I can now have some time to get things done!

I can't wait for you to be all done with this all and have your beautiful girl home with her family!

YEAH!! YEAH!!! YEAH!!!

Cammie Heflin said...

Yeah!!!!!!! So happy for you guys! I'm one of those moms too incase you hadn't noticed!

Alison said...

What great news!

Mama Mason-Mann said...

Congratulations!!!! All things happen for a reason. I have to think the delay in being submitted was giving Jax some time to get his medical issues in order. I'm sending positive mojo your way for a smooth trip and process! Love to you and your family!

Tina said...

Yipeeeee!! Thats the best news ever. I am so happy, my gosh it's all happening now, you're going to see Makayla soon. I am just so excited.

That is a beautiful picture of you and Jax, I can't believe how beautifully he's holding his head up, usually you have a hand behind his head but he's doing it all by himself now. Can't believe that he was one sick little boy just just a few days ago.

Kim Rees said...

That's fantastic news Lacey! Thank you Lord!

Yay that is the best news ever!
