  • The craziness of a chorus concert in 2 weeks today
  • Fun chance to get to go see the Kibee family after Christmas! (went to China w/ us)
  • Sweet Tea (lol)
  • My little brother Hayne who was attacked by a dog 2 years ago while we were in the adoption process
  • That we won`t have to spend another Christmas w/o our China Angel!!!
I am SO thankful and to the families who are in the process it won`t be long before your China Angel will spend Christmas with you!! I know this must be hard we were in the same situation last year! Have a GREAT week! :) The pix of AG is when my Mom caught her right after her bath in the pantry eating "froot loops to go"!

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

Anna Grace`s Lovie

Giving her "night night" "Love"
My Mom wanted Anna to have that special "Lovie" That she was attached to. Well for the last few weeks she has REALLY been pushing it. Anna has just pushed/thrown them down. Well this week she started to bond! to a precious lamb that our friends Bobbi and Maddie gave us. She fights Hayne for it if he just wants to touch it!She calls it her "Night Night" it is SO Sweet! Thanks Bobbi and Maddie!

Reflecting on her changes

WOW! Anna Grace has TRANSFORMED in SO many ways! Just take a look it is Amazing to me that 4 1/2 months ago a scared little girl who didn`t know anything about us was placed into our arms and now a happy, smiling talkative baby! I just can`t believe my eyes.
