Blogging Therapy

Dillon still hasn't recieved our homestudy with the necessary changes. For the fourth time today I've heard that it would be done "by the end of the day." It's been an entire month. So I'm blogging as a form of therapy.

Two amazing things about today:

~My father-in-law turned 70 today. You would never guess him to look at him. (By the way, I am blessed with the sweetest in-laws ever).

~Two years ago today we saw Max Rup's face for the first time. I remember every second of the call from Tami. For some reason she had my parents' number listed as ours, and we just happen to be down there that night. I even answered the phone. I thought it was a call about our I 171-H since I had just faxed it to her the night before. I couldn't believe it was our referral. It was a Friday and she told us to think about it and review his info with our doctor, but I decided the minute his face popped up on our computer screen. He was (and is) the cutest little guy I'd ever seen. I called my in-laws that night, rambled on about Max Rup, and forgot to with my father-in-law a happy birthday.

We had a busy Easter weekend. Mimi was home which makes everything more special. Mimi cannot believe how much my children eat. She can't believe (and finds exhausting) how much Madeline wiggles - constantly. And I'm pretty sure she needed a vacation from the 5 nieces and nephews by the time she got on the plane ;)

Here's some pics and videos -

Coombs Gang Picture

This is nearly the entire Coombs clan. The vast majority of us are together for every holiday and sometimes "just because." We were so thankful to all be together last night. The only ones missing are Cody, Taylor, and Tom. Special thanks to Molly's friend for coming over to snap the pic (none of us know how to use the timer functions on our cameras). :)

Cute Pics

These two are so cute together. They are best buddies, and Myles is a very good big brother to Max Rup. Max is at the stage where he copies everything Myles says and does. They just adore each other.

These two pictures were taken by Myles. He thinks it's hilarious that he caught me with my tongue out, and is very proud that we're putting it on the blog. (I'll truly do anything for my kids :) ).
