They are dresses for her and pictures of her growing up!!
Our article 5 was ready 2 days ago. Now we wait for TA--the final step. I didn't think anything could be worse than having to wait for Christmas as a kid--but this is brutal, we are trying to keep our minds busy with other things so as to help time go quickly!! Marsjon is painting rooms to get ready. I'm working to raise the last bit of money.
