Hi ho! Hi ho! It's back to Kaz we go!

September 18th!!! This is the day we leave. Renewed... renewed passion for this calling, renewed energy for the travel, renewed excitement for the first day, renewed hope... that we will meet our baby this time.
Meanwhile...
-We still haven't painted the baby room because we still don't know if we will have a little girl or a little boy. I have anxious siblings ready with the paint brushes while we are gone.
-Brad turned a year older... and we were actually in country to celebrate.
-I will turn a year older... although, I'm saying that Sunday is a LONG time away because it's the big 30! Whoa!
-We are about to celebrate 5 years of being married! September 13th... That's exciting.
What a year! 2008 has been a great year for us (and it is only August)!
Keep checking back... one more big change to be announced... (probably several posts before we get to that point, but... keep reading).
More soon! Don't forget to keep us in your prayers.... I know I've said it before, but I can't stress how much your prayers have been felt in our lives.

I'll be praying hard for you guys!!! I love and miss y'all and can't wait till you get to hold that little one in your arms:O)

Don't forget to pack new movies this time since you watched all of them the last time you went, just kidding, but you know you're going to need lots more different ones:O) LOL!!

Love you,
jenn h.

yeah, good advice on those movies, Jenn. And now you won't have anyone stealing your Columbo movies... thank you to the friend who loaned them to you last time. It really helped us! ;-)
I'm addicted to 24, the show, and it's got a lot of seasons... that might be a good one to bring if you can locate them from someone.

Have a safe trip, guys, and keep us posted as best you can. I'm so excited for you and am praying that things go smoothly. (By the way, thanks for stocking the candy...I think we went through 4 snickers last night.) Love you guys...
