Well on Christmas our Nana, Papa, Mema, and Papa all came to our house plus my Aunt B.J and her son Jesse. We ate some food and we opened our presents from our parents. We got a lot of stuff this year! We then got cookies and laid them out for Santa and by 11:30 we were all asleep. Miss Anna Grace loved her presents ad opened 1 at a time and played w/ it and then got tired of it and opened another 1! It was SO cute and when she had opened a present and was done playing with it she would wave her little hands in the air and say "all da all da" She went to bed pretty quickly and had a ton of Mo Mo stuff in her floor in her room! So without further ado here are the Christmas Eve Pictures! Make sure you click on the collage to Enlarge it!!

WOW! I can`t believe we have had Anna Grace for 1/2 a year! WOW! I can`t believe we have had our China Angel for that long! Time flies! Anna Grace has become so amazing in these past 6 months she has begun to talk more and more than she did and She knows what a Cow, Cat, Dog, Duck, Wolf, Bunny, Mommy, Daddy, Sissy, Haney, Brother, and Baby say! She is so vocal and loud! She loves Elmo and music and playing with her Dissy and brothers and loves to get Daddy to rock her to sleep! She also does not cry a lot (mostly b/c she gets what she wants) She has a spicy temper if you do something she does not approve of and loves to eat! She ate 1/2 a box of Froot Loops on the way home from Virginia and slapped me when I tried to take them away! lol She is the light of my life and my baby who I would not trade for the world and would die for her! She is my Mei Mei who I waited for ever and a day to have! I always talk about her at school and what she does.(ask my friends) ! We will officially have had Anna Grace for more than 1/2 of the time she spent in the orphanage on January 11th! WOW i can`t believe it :0
:) I know this post is a few days early but I`m VERY busy this week and plan to post Christmas Eve and Day tomorrow! Sorry for the delay! :)

Well we are back and I will post pictures of Anna Grace`s 1st Christmas when I load them on my computer! Sorry for the delay! :) We found out on Thursday my Uncle Johnny got to leave his base and come home! Unfortunately the National Guard does not book our soldiers flights they have to wait for an open flight! So it could take him 2 days or 2 weeks but he gets to come home for 2 weeks!!!!!!!!! I am SO excited! Please pray for his safety as he is traveling home and back he needs prayers if you pray! I want to say how proud I am of my Aunt B.J who is doing so well w/ her husband gone we are ALL so excited especially her! Please, Please pray for his safety!

This week we will be at Williamsburg to meet up w/ some people we went to China with unfortunately one of the families daughter Ella got sick and will be unable to come:( But Meighan and her Forever Family will be here shortly! We left at 6:00 this morning and it was a 7-8 hour drive! Anna Grace did great but her temper and "Spiciness" today on the way here. Funny on Sunday the 23rd we went shopping and I gave her a OPEN (stupid is me) box of Gerber Puffs so she could eat them well Her spiciness again came through and she yanked the Gerber Puffs out of my hand and threw them at the window! Yeah whole thing of Gerber Puffs in the floor of our CLEAN car! Oh well I am so sorry but i don`t have any pictures of Christmas YET on my computer. I will post some when I return home.

Here are some new pix of Anna Grace! I can`t believe how she has changed! These pix are of her eating her 1st cookie w/ icing she L-O-V-E-D IT!!!!!! She was SO upset when we took it away b/c it was literally mush. She is starting to just babble it is just precious and she loves to dance (in a baby standing in 1 place way) She is now taking in a love that her Sister also loves Carrie Underwood songs! (the last collage you see)
On December 13th I had my GMS Chorus Concert it was Great! I know I am late and behind but I`m gonna try to catch up this week/weekend I will have a little more free time since school is out!!!! I hope this is catching people up! :) (middle collage)
We celebrated Christmas a little early w/ my Dad`s Family b/c some of them will be out of town! We had SO much fun! We got a lot of presents and Anna Grace got a "Mo Mo" Couch! It was a TON of fun and we got presents early!! My parents let us open 1 present and it happened to be a preset just from my Dad and I got Nike Shox! (they are pink and brown) I was SO excited!( 1st collage you see)
I love this picture!

Today my little brother Adam turned 9! This time 9 years ago I was leaving the pleasures of being an ONLY child but coming into the fun of having siblings!(sometimes) I love Adam to death! He is the child who LOVES to build stuff and make things (and is very good at it) (unlike his sister) ME! Happy Birthday Adam!

All Anna Grace wants for Christmas is to have a tooth completely and fully poking through her gum! With Anna Grace walking it is sort of sad b/c of how fast the little girl who 5 months ago had just been home for a couple of days and could barely hold her head up and now she is walking?!!!?!!! O Well I guess they just grow up to fast so enjoy our time now- That is how I look at it!

I can`t believe that 5 months ago right now a beautiful Chinese Angel was being placed into our arms! Time flies is all I can say..... We have had Anna Grace for 1/2 of the time she spent in the orphanage without a forever family!She has blessed my life in SO many ways! She is such a blessing to our family! We can`t wait to see her have her 1st entire tooth come through! It finally broke through but not completely! For the families who are waiting everyday you are 1 step closer to getting your baby safely in your arms! "They Never said the wait was easy just worth it!" I am SO blessed to have had this miracle put in my life!

Loving Adam`s Rocky

Hayne loves his Rudolph and is trying to learn the song "Rudolph the red nosed reindeer"
Me and my Baby
Our aminals (as Hayne calls it)
She LOVES Music
We took Anna Grace to the mall last night to see Santa and try to get a Christmas card pix of all of us.We got there at about four b/c we picked my Mom up from my Nana`s house. We got in line and 2 people in front of us and up got to go and then Santa was going to go on brake.ugh! So we swapped around our plans and went to "Build A Bear" to build some type of animal. I built Clarice the reindeer for AG and she L-O-V-E-S it! We named it Hannah for the reason that I am going to see Hannah Montana on Tuesday!!!!!!! I am SOOOOOOO excited! I wish AG could go but it would be WAAAAYYY to LOUD for her.After we went to Build-A-Bear we went down to see Santa AGAIN. When we got there there were not very many people so that was good! We waited for 15 minutes maybe? and the entire time everyone was staring at Little Miss AG she adored the attention! When we went to see Santa Hayne was so excited he could not stand it! He sat beside Santa and smiled so sweet, We put Anna in Santa`s lap and all she did was stared for about 1 minute like "Who are you and why did my daddy just hand me to you?" After that 1 moment She realized what happened and started Screaming at the top of her lungs but once we picked her up she was fine Oh Well. We got a few good pix.

I saw this picture on Lanterns and Lotus Blossoms and loved it I thought it was so sweet so here is my little version of it.I also added some Chinese Proverbs around it.
“The journey of a thousand miles starts with one step.”
“When a child is born invisible red threads extend from the child's spirit and connect to all the significant people who will be part of the child's life. As the child grows, the threads shorten, drawing closer those people who are destined to be together.” Chinese proverb
