Away We Go: Part 2

Well I am sure you have seen our video or heard the news - we passed court and are now the proud parents of a little girl, Wren Kibnesh Lee Berry!

The hubs made this little video.  And I'm gonna warn you, it might make your allergies act up.

Over the next week I'll post more about our adventure in Addis Ababa and the time we got to spend with Wren.

In the meantime I think you should read this.  It will also make your allergies act up, but for a different reason.

Away We Go: Part 1

Very soon we will be leaving on our first trip to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  Eeek!  I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous.  Nervous.  Excited.  Anxious.  Downright giddy I tell ya!  I get to hold her!!!!  But not until after the the LONG flight there, which is one of  the reasons for my nervousness.   While I love to travel, I am not a great traveler.   Airplanes kinda freak me out.  I mean after all, 'an airplane is just a building on it's side, being thrown through the air' (Claire, Modern Family).
I am also nervous because I have to leave my boys.   My babies!  How will they get along without me?!   In reality I know that they will not miss me one single bit.  In fact they can't wait to get rid of me, and manipulate their poor, sweet, unassuming Grandma into taking them to Chuck E. Cheese.  They are so crafty.  I will miss their craftiness.
So, here we go.  Off to see our girl.  And hug her.  And play with her.  And make her our own.

ps.  Once we get back, we'll answer the ever so popular question "What's her name?"  Stay tuned....
