"“Some babies are so special,
They come in different ways
Some must wait for their babies
For days and days and days

Some babies come from close by
The Mom who had them could not’t stay
Other Mommies are waiting for them
For a baby they pray and pray and pray

Other babies are born in a far-away land
The mommy who had them no longer there
But some Mommies fly across the sea
A baby’s love to share

You may have a different skin color
Or a different kind of hair
But the love Mommy has for her baby
Will truly always be there

No matter how you or I look
One thing will always be true
You are my precious baby
And I will always love you"

Tossing and Turning

I go to bed at 8 every night since kids started school, but for some reason I toss and I turn all night. VERY ANNOYING. When I'm not tossing and turning I do like I did last night, sleep really good then 3:30 BANG I'm awake for the day. I usually get on the computer or watch tv. I have even laid in the bed once and tried to go back to sleep till the alarm went off at 5:45 and NOTHING! so by 4 I'm up and cleaning the house. Then get kids up at 6 on bus by 7. The rest of my day is a blurred tired mess but I know if I go to take a nap I will not go to sleep that night. I have these dreams that are just plum crazy don't even know if they would be able to be put into real life anything. VERY STRANGE I guess its better being awake and thinking about our new little princess then asleep having some weird dream about who knows what.

I started getting things together to go get our baby girl. I CAN'T WAIT!!! We will only need to do this another 8 times to equal 12. I just don't think Jason is going to go for it he said maybe 3 more. He is such a good dad I'm really proud of him. Of course we have our issues over the way he is so rough with the boy but it will be ok. I got three bags so far packed, I hope this is normal. We are changing names again our friends beat us to the name Laila so we are going to do Leia no idea about the middle name yet. Jason says Tia.... hahaha Leia Tia Brown I don't think so. I like Leia Faith or Leia Hope. I don't know we will figure it out. If its twins of boy/girl Silas and Leia, or Jacob and Leah, girls will be Leia and don't know yet. Anyway we will figure it out. That's all for tonight.

Dr. offices

I took my nephew to the Dr. today and sat there forever. Not many people in the office but the Dr. just took foever to get into the room. We thought my nephew had been running fever because of an ear infection but nothing there. The Dr. gave him some anitbiotic that will clear up what we think is a bladder infection. This is something my daughter always fought with and still does if she isn't drinking enough during the day. I didn't think boys had those problems though. I guess you always learn something new.

Arkansas update!

Well timing was off for Arkansas. Horray!! (in some ways of course) Come to find out this is probably for the best. Our friends are actually moving and we have forever LOVED their house, so we are going to jump on their house even though it is smaller than ours. Our friend remodeled his house and he is a bit of a perfectionist so it is beautiful. Of course the girls will have to share a room for awhile but OH WELL!!! what is a 14, 8, and baby sharing a room. =) There is an apartment in the backyard so later Ash can move into the apartment if she needs to get away. Maybe someday we will get away from this town just won't be this year.

Dukes of Hazard and sleep walking

First let me tell you my son loves dukes of hazard. So with that being said we bought him and his dad season 1 and 2 of dukes of hazard and he has done nothing but watch it. So after a full afternoon of watching dukes of hazard he starts to feel bad and tells us he's going to bed it is 8:00. About 10:00 he comes running into my room with a cup and a t-shirt since he sleep walks a lot of times I just asked him what is he doing and this is what he said:

K: (with t-shirt and cup in hand) I broke this missle
me: really how?
K: I don't know it just broke
me: ok go lay down
K: I can't see the mayor is importing illegal moonshine into hazard and now I have to have to help Bo and Luke
me: ok
K: Hurry I need to hide this Bo and Lukes kids are waiting in the car for me
Me: Hurry go put it over on your dad's side of the bed
K: (running puts t-shirt down on floor) I will come back and plant this later

Me and DAD: laughing non stop

Our dossier is on its way to Ethiopia. We are so excited!! Tomorrow we have to drive to Lubbock to get fingerprinted for I-600 I really wish there was somewhere closer or even here in Odessa to do this. We will do whatever it takes of course.

Kids have school pictures done tomorrow and I hate that they have to wear their uniforms for pictures. It stinks since they have cute clothes they could be wearing. In fact Haleigh still has brand new clothes hanging in the closet right now she doesn't wear since on the weekend all she wants to do is hang out in her night clothes.

Well thats all I have right now about to get ready to go make some money.
