"Pam-maw" and "May-maw" are so excited.I was telling Jamie how we moved into our new home July 20th a year ago. I had told everyone I needed it for all the future family and grandchildren. I just didn't know I would be getting all my request at once and in such a short time. We are so excited for you and Brian, and Jamie and Billy!
Much love, May

Lauren said...

Congrats to you and Brian! Keep us updated!

Michelle said...

Try to keep us updated!!! I would love to see pictures of where you live and your little belly growing. I'm so excited for you guys. When Brian was on stage for Jamie and Billy's wedding and he was holding one of the little boy's hand I thought "he is going to be an amazing father". You are also going to be such a fun mom. I can't wait to keep up with your life, you guys are so outgoing and fun and full of life. Your children will be blessed to have 2 amazing parents. CONGRATS AGAIN!!!

Mama PC aka "Pam-Maw" said...

wonder what the little sweet pea will look like????

Linds! there is so much happening there that we haven't had time to talk about! i can't wait to read more blogs n emails... and for you to come home for Aaron's and Rachel's wedding for a few (3?) weeks so we can find out more!

you could possibly help clean up from the wedding too! ha! the dining table STILL has your wedding remnants on it...and there is still all that leftover lotions/mosquito repellent that was too heavy to pack for Uganda underneath the hall table at the front door!

do not fear - i'll try to place things orderly in your room where you can find it! :-)

marriage, moving, BeBEE in just too few weeks....and the dust still hasn't settled!!!

i love you Dott!

i miss you!!!

Laura said...

Jamie said...

Yay for close cousins only 13 days apart!! That's gonna make for some very fun times in the future! Hope you're feeling good...we miss you guys!

Sarah said...

message from Lindsey in Jinja

"I'm sorry for not being able to get on the blog...there are just so many things still to do here...and it takes hours to email/blog because of slow connections" and also she said "send everyone my love" and "i'll try to blog some this next week"

she said she is feeling ok...but today was the first time that "rice sounded horrible" for dinner.... she's craving fruits and vegetables...

she can get a 1.5 L water from a market in town for about 1,000 shillings... which is about 80 cents so is staying hydrated... and avacados and mangos are easy to get so she's eating those during the day. she said that there are good foods there...

she doesn't have the appropriate clothing, so is getting together a list for me to send some things to her July 29 when an adoptive mother travels to Uganda...along with some more "product" for the 'saloon' - what the Ugandans are calling the hair salon...

they will be moving into their cottage next week - one room, stone floor, non-air-conditioned - with 2 burner gas stove, and dorm-sized refrigerator.

she said that she is getting used to being there....

i have their new cell phone #'s if anyone needs them... let me know...

lindsey, if i wrote anything incorrectly here, i'm sorry

:-).... but you can straighten us out! whenever you get the time :-)

Jess said...

yay my pal! I'm so excited you're getting your place!

Mama PC aka "Pam-Maw" said...

did you move into The Cottage yet?

did they get all the gecko's out? gheckos, geckhoes, Gheck-o's? How DO you spell that lizzard's name?

do you sleep under a mosquito net? or is the proper term "sleep inside a mosquito net"?

i miss you, Dott

we will call you again on your phone on Saturday at noon our time...around 9 p.m. your time if that's okay...
