I got the visas today, and they were all there! I have been having horrible dreams the past two nights that I get the envelope and open them, and there are only 2 visas, not 3! Crazy I know, but you know things just go through your head and you can't stop them. We also got our letter from the doctor who evaluated Peanut for the USCIS saying that they feel she is great to come to the US.
I now feel like we have everything we need, and possibly the kitchen sink accounted for, for our 21 days away. I got the car seat installed, and I am really confused as to how our suburban is set up. For those of you who have ever been in a suburban, to access the 3rd seat, you have to move one seat. Well for our 2nd row, there are only 2 sets of hooks for the car seats, one in the middle, and one on the seat that has to move. That seems really odd to me, wouldn't you want it on the seat that doesn't move? Well I have just decided to use the seat belt instead of the hooks, because I don't want to have to move the car seat to get to the 3rd row. It will all be much better when we can buy the new(er) car.
Thanks to everyone who has made such nice comments, and who have prayed for us. You have no idea how much that means to us in this endeavor. Tomorrow we have to go get our new washer and dryer, (don't ask, just Murphy's Law in effect), finish getting the house decorated for Christmas, and get laundry done so we can pack. Still don't know what I am going to do for a tree, we always go cut down a tree, but getting home 1 week before Christmas might pose a problem there. Oh, well, small problem in a big picture!
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and if you went shopping, hope you got some great deals!
