I am in shock and awe that we pull out of our driveway in 2 DAYS to begin Journey to Jeremiah! I am excited and petrified and worried and stressed all at the same time! I found out on my weather thing on my phone that there will be storms in Taiwan when we are flying there so I am even MORE petrified than before about the flights. I am TRYING so hard to HAVE faith and not be scared, but am NOT doing a good job of it. And to be quite honest when I think about it I am not sure if I am more scared of the plane crashing and us maybe dying or the horrific feeling of fear that whole time. Last time was horrible to be so tense and so afraid for so long! And the pain in my legs (prayin this time will be better as I have lovely flight stockings supplied by my dear friend Lora and her hubby! Great to have friends and docs caring for you across the miles :) I am blessed in that) and how sick I felt. I have bought tons of dramamine PRAYING it will help more this time. I wish I could let go of this fear and just enjoy the ride but it is so horrible to feel that for so long, and then being claustraphobic and feeling trapped as well, but what am I gonna do, go sit out on the wing for a bit so I dont feel closed in! LOL Now that would work just fine! LOL NOT! even if possible, fear of heights would knock that one out. I HATE being a fearful person. As a Christian I am NOT suppose to be this way! ugggh. Anyway, we are trying to get packed, figure out what is best to take and all and get the house completely ready and spotless. My neice was suppose to do an extra cleaning while we were gone but she ended up getting a job and now won't have time. I remember how exhausted I was after coming back with Noah and how hard things were and so I need it all ready and ready to be slightly neglected if need be for a bit. also , noah got so sick so easy so I want it basically sterile! lol
So, when Noah got home off the plane my friend Sherry and her family were one of the families there at the airport and they brought him a panda skin from Build a Bear. They left it unstuffed and said when he was bigger we could take him in to have it done. So, we decided a few months ago we would do it right before we went to get Jeremiah and he coudl have it as a travel buddy! :) We also decided to have him make a build a bear for Jeremiah as his gift to Jeremiah when they meet! We have a train for Jeremiah to gift Noah when they meet! So we ordered the skin for Jeremiah's build a bear awhile back. Well, yesterday was the day!! since Bobby is off for Paternity leave now and Celeste had gone to lunch with a friend for her bday and needed a ride home, and build a bear was close by so we met her and picked her up and the family four headed to build a bear! :)
Meet Buddy! :)
Meet Frogie!! :)
Being stubborn, he had been holding them and then when I wanted a picture would not hold them anymore!
Celeste holding them to try and convince Noah to do it! :)
Both have a lullaby sound in the right arm and both have 4 hearts in them, one for each of us. Noah would not step on the peddle to make the bear and he would not do anything with the hearts, he did give them a bath , Celeste has some pics on her camera and that may be in them, but she is asleep still so I am posting while I can and have to go with these from my phone!
Here is a video of my Panda Boy :)
