Tomorrow is the BIG day!

I am surprised I have made it to 38 weeks. The average delivery time for twins is 36 weeks...but of course my body just keeps hanging in there. This pregnancy has been rougher than any of my previous ones, but also very special. The kicks and movements from two little ones are amazing. You should, however, see my right foot and ankle. It's huge. Like twice the size of my left one!

BJ and I are both excited and nervous about this. We know the Lord is good and will help us. I am sure things will be chaotic for a while, but we are praying for a peaceful and loving home.

Here is our paper chain from a few days ago. Jared took this project on by assigning which brother gets to rip off each day's chain. He handled it like a true firstborn.....complete with a chart to keep track of how many turns each boy had left. :) The boys are so excited to meet their new brothers.

Each member of our family took a guess at twin A and twin B's weight. I can't wait to see who won. Hopefully it won't be the guesses for over 8 lbs. each. :)
If you think of us Wednesday, please pray for us. We would appreciate it.

Here we go......

Pre- 4th of July Fireworks

Thanks to the Woodburn Company Stores. The boys LOVED it!

(What is it with boys and things that explode? :)

Guess what we got....

We needed something to help get the wiggles out. Our rental is a real blessing, but our boys are a little bored without wood to stack, dirt to dig in, gardens rows to weed, and our rabbits to chase (may they rest in peace).

BJ found this one on craigslist and the boys were thrilled to help get it up and going.

The boys, both big and small, have already enjoyed it immensely.
