Gos has surely blessed us. Ky Ky thanks for that for that special call. Can't wait to see all your smiling faces departing off the airplane.

Jakob had to write his own comment. He is so funny. He had to type everything also. He was coping Backyardigans and being five years old typed it backwards of course.

Love u'all.

Candy and Shawn: I can not tell you how happy we both are for you and for Kya, we know that she couldn't be happier with her family! The whole experience of meeting you both has been very special, please know that you will always have your family from Guatemala and that we are thrilled to be a part of your life. Also I can not tell you how sorry I am for the difficult times, but I think that after all it made our friendship grow and i couldn't be more gratefull for it. Always remember the good moments in Guatemala and please come not go to sears and shop for angels...jaja
We really love you and we're really happy for you!!!

Nana say: Thank You JESUS!!! To God Be the Glory!! Our fervent prayers have finally been answered. Sooo many tears of joy have been shed this weekend--it is finally raining here Ha! Nana got the antique highchair out of the attic to take to Gma Paige's so you can eat in style. It's been empty for too many years now--just waiting for your little tushie to fill it. God speed us thru the final days of your adventure!xoxoxox

Stacey said...

I can't wait! May God watch over you and Kya for your ride home!

PaPa Murnan said...

Everyone needs to get one thing straight...Kya will give a courtesy nod to the sooners but she is destined to be a Cowboy Cutie for life. I don't have words to fully express my feeling right now but I don't intend to let that stop me. MeMe says I just talk until I think of something to say. KiKi you are so special and Kya is a chip off the ole block. Great fun awaits us all. Love ya both. See you at the airport..You will recognize me because I will be the big guy with tears in his eyes and a smile in my heart.

Congratulations!!! It is so wonderful that in a few short weeks you will be home! I'm sure you never thought "waiting out PGN" would EVER be this long.

May everything else go swimmingly. Your blog has made our wait so much better, your updates have been great!
