IT WORKED!!!!!!!

THEY SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT LAST NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whatever you guys did out there if you love us even a tiny bit you will do it again!!!!!!!! 

Margot woke up around 10:15 and called for me from her bed. A car had just gone by with loud thumping music. I went up there and she was sitting on the edge of her bed snuffling and said she heard a bump-bump sound. I told her it was a loud car, praised her for still staying in her bed and helped her get settled in again with Button and her "puppet" (her soft has developed a hole in the silky part that she can put her finger in and she now calls her soft her puppet). I left the room praying hard that the Lord would calm her spirit and help her to stay put and sure enough.. not another peep until 5:40 this morning. That's right.. THEY ACTUALLY SLEPT IN!!!!!!! Ada woke up around 6 and the light on the clock hadn't turned green yet (I messed it up last night - fixed it this morning) so she was calling for Stephen because it was starting to be light around the edges of her curtains but the clock wasn't green yet. We actually had to convince her to get out of bed!! I know it's just one night but it was such a drastic change from the last few weeks that we are both so encouraged!! Stephen gladly helped the girls celebrate by making pancakes and bacon for breakfast. 

Here's hoping it happens again tonight. Behold the power of chocolate.. or the loss thereof.

Totally awesome report... Ok we're on a mission, Mary and I will pray again tonight, and tomorrow night, and ...well, at least for the next several days. Hooray for the small victories in life.
