It seems I have been "nesting" for a good few months now. When biologically you are not bringing a child into the world, the nesting thing can run rampid, and twins at that. Yes, I am feeling the need to be prepared. The kids and I learned how to make laundry soap and fabric softener in bulk. (It's good for sensitive skin too)!
We are rearranging a bit, and gearing toward making room for babies. We are not putting the cribs up yet, staring at an empty crib is pure torture if you ask me. They can go up when we have travel approval. We are expecting our Article 5 by Friday (crossing fingers). Once that is picked up, we are officially in the "Waiting on Travel Approval Boat." We did get our Chinese Visa's, which means are precious passports are back in our happy hands!

Today, Zoe got fitted for her palate expander. Bless her heart, she has tiny everything, but too of a tiny mouth, not enough room in there for all the teeth she will get.

My parents came over and we all went to the arena so the kids could get some riding in. The calander says spring is here but the forecast is arguing. Some say we are supposed to get 5 inches of that beautiful, cold, white stuff, that extends the mud season. I am grateful we got out today and enjoyed the spring weather though!
Clay and I are excited for our weekend. We are going to the Family Life's, "Weekend to Rembember" Marriage Conference. We went last year and had a great time, and it will probably be our last getaway before we have 5 kids under our roof, and the Lord knows it sure does not hurt to do a bit of maintenence on the relationship before we undergo a major life change.

We were blessed this week with an adorable picture of Ivor. Oh how cute he is!
