We spent Thanksgiving in southern IL with Matt's Grandparents. We told Grandma Hindman that we are naming one of the twins Chloe, which is Grandma's middle name. In the words of Matt's sister Buffy, "I think you made Grandma's month with that news." Needless to say, the twins were pretty much all she talked about the whole time we were there. We can't wait to introduce the girls to their great-grandparents.
We had a surprise in store for us when we got home. Amy went to pick up Caesar from the family who watched him while we were in IL. This family is also adopting from Ethiopia and Amy conducted their home study. They had 4 bags of clothes and toys for the twins that they had collected for us. Caesar was especially intrigued by the giraffe. What a blessing from a family who they themselves are preparing to bring 2 more kids home from Ethiopia!
