Whew!

I'm tired, really tired.

We didn't sleep much last night, as anyone would have expected, and we were up early (Karen at 4:30 and I think I made it to 6:00). Fortunately, we were able to Make ourselves busy to pass the time. I think Karen was reading other peoples blogs, and I was laying on the bed trying to just close my eyes and hope I could feel some rest.

The interesting thing was that in a very short time, I had some type of dream. I remember only a little, but in that dream, Karen's mother was here for support, and, in the dream, I was loopy, as if I had taken some sleeping pills, and barely able to stand. When, still in the dream, it was time to go, we went outside to get in the car, and one of my own brothers, trying very hard to help us, removed the engines from both of our cars to make sure they worked properly...

I can't tell you any more of that dream, because it was then that Karen woke me up to get ready to go.

The drive was rather uneventful, and we were both fairly calm as we drove closer to this new destiny. It was about 10 minutes from arrival that Karen started to crack. Just the butterflies and nervousness, and not any real mania, though I did have the video camera ready just in case she went really crazy.

So that's about enough of the rambling. I can imagine you probably want to see some pictures now.

Oh Gosh! She's charming! So sweet and plump and cute!

I'm sorry we won't get to see video of Karen going bonkers but glad you both survived the suspense and got back quickly and safely to post these adorable pictures!
