They had JUNK from the drive way to the curb on all sides of the yard. You could not see the grass for all the junk. I want to know how you collect that much junk over time and where in the world they stored all that stuff. I'm talking "random" out dated junk. Now I know every ones junk is someone elses treasure but good gracious they had a ton of stuff. I took this picture on Saturday.........the yard sale had been set up since Thursday........now can you picture all the junk that was out there!
I was in total shock over this yard sale. I'm in no way making fun of this sale because like I said earlier, I LOVE a good garage/yard sale. My concern is........where did all this stuff come from bc I know it was not stored in the house that sits on that yard!!!

Mommy and Daddy....yes we are expecting Brooks to be blonde hair blue eyed
update 9:31 am- Well Jamie's water just broke. She was in the middle of a big contraction when all of the sudden she looked up at me and her grandmother and said plain as day "and my water just broke" ha!! She has now requested an epidural so she is preparing for it. She's doing great but in a good amount of pain so she will be very happy once the epidural is here.
Good morning everyone! Jamie is laying here being her silly self. She checked in this morning started her pitocin and fluids. She is having some strong and consistant contractions so they turned her pitocin down. She is being a super trooper but she is definitely feeling the contractions.
This picture was during a contraction (see she's a trooper). Everyone say your prayers....We are having a BABY!!! Ill update in a bit whenever something fun starts to happen. Keep checking in!!

Reading Chumandev's letter (that was translated for me) really made me think of how blessed I am and the pure innocence of a child. He asked that I pray for his health and family. I'm pretty sure if I asked my nephew what I could pray for he would respond with something more like "pray I win a million bucks" or "pray I don't have to go to school ever again". Now I know that is not really want my nephew would want but I'm not sure he would ask for me to pray for his health and family either.....especially at nine years old.
The best part of my letter I received was the drawing Chumandev sent me. A house and a flower. Now this wasn't just any house or flower but both were VERY colorful. Chumandev lives in a village....the houses are not colorful nor are there flowerbeds with beautiful colorful flowers.
I am so blessed to have my health, family, friends, job, and Chumandev. I am so blessed to be able to adopt him....even though I will never bring him into my home and I may never be able to hold him in my arms, I am fortunate enough to pray for him, love him, and learn from him. He has already opened my eyes to so much in the short time I have known him and I am so excited to watch him grow.
God Bless you and love you,
