Nothing to say...

I haven't been writing because I haven't had anything interesting or fun or exciting things happening. My best excuse is that I had really sick kids for almost a month. They got huge sores in their mouths and throats that lasted for a long time. It was so sad. They couldn't eat, they couldn't sleep. They just wanted to be held all day. I started to go kind of crazy with sick cranky kids all day, so when they got a little better I went up to my sisters in Kennewick for 2 days. We watched movies and ate at Red Lobster which I love! A much needed break. Thanks sis.
Lets see...I got a phone call from our adoption worker a couple weeks ago who said that corporate is ready to start the finalization process!! Woo hoo! It shouldn't be too much longer now. As soon as we have a date we can schedule a sealing and she will finally be ours! I'm a little nervous because we have to have a 3 way call with her birth mom tonight to discuss open adoption guidelines. Everyone pray it will go well for us and things will move quickly!
Tim is doing fantastically amazing in his classes and I am so super proud of my husband for being able to work full time, go to school full time, and have a family full time. He has gotten A's in every one of his classes, and still manages to spend time with the kids and take me on an occasional date. Did I mention he is also the ward mission leader? Yeah, my husband rocks.
Dustin is totally and completely potty trained. For a long time pooping was really scary for him. He wouldn't poop for 4 days in a row, and then he would be painfully constipated-- totally not helping my "pooping on the potty is fun" act. But, we persevered, he got over it, and now he poops everyday! I love not changing diapers!! I love the extra moolah too!
Well, I think that's all the updates I have for now. I wish I had something fun and witty to tell you, but what can I say? I'm boring!

You have lots of exciting news in that post. Hooray for Dustin being totally potty trained, what a stud. It can be hard to get all A's without a job and family that is awesome. I'm glad that your kids are feeling better. I have been missing you. Oh and good luck with the phone call with the birth mom.

What darling little ones you have! I am so jealous on the totally potty trained little boy you have there. Our little guy is the most stubborn pooper in the WORLD. We're trying to be patient... But it's so hard.
Keep up the posts! :)
