And did you happen to notice in Gabbi Girl's special day pics that she is once again in a light blue dress with brown monogram? Do you think that was an accident?!
And did you notice that me, Todd, Ellie and Gabbi all coordinated?! I intend to have both of their "special days" framed and hung together in the new house. And how cute that they have on similar outfits? I mean, really.... how cute!
Did you happen to recall Ellie trying to help Judge Marchman sign her own documents?!
And that we had an entourage at that signing too!? and as for the question regarding the difference in their ages at their respective adoption days... well.... there are a lot of hoops that one must jump through to get all documents required to finalize one of these deals. Our original attorney/ social worker was from New Orleans. She decided she would not be handling any home studies anymore, so we had to start over with the process of home studies, paperwork and such when we were really close to going to court with Gabbi Girl. It just took us several months more to get all the ducks in a row. But, nevertheless, she is a Groves now.
Yep... just special girls all around!
Who'd a thunk it. Todd and I were 38 when all these blessings were heaped on us! And now, at 41, we get to keep on experiencing all this goodness. We are thankful!
P.S. Happy Birthday to Granddad!!! We look forward to seeing you in exactly a month!!
