More importantly, we had some WONDERFUL visits today. First of all, I had a surprise visit from some local friends of ours, Greg and Margie. Then Zoey's mom, Heather came by and brought many gifts. Ella now has a beautiful pink car to cruise the hospital in as well as two new blankets and many pairs of baby legs. She will be quite stylish!! Then Joel and his family showed up from Canada. I can't tell you what a joy it was to meet this family that I have never met but feel like I know so well. Joel is even cuter in person and he and Ella seemed to have an immediate bond. There really is nothing quite like the bond we have with our friends in blogland!!! To finish off our evening, my dad and Barbara, came to visit us and then Barbara took the night shift so I could come home as Joe is back to work for the next 4 days.
Please pray for a smooth and simple procedure for Ella tomorrow. Here are some pics from the day.
