Are They Twins?????

No not quite! That has been the question of the day (well since 6:00pm) Meighan and Princess have gotten looked at SOO many times and we have been asked a few times "Are They Twins?" hahaha Funny Story- When we went to Williamsburg with Deb & Ken we got asked at The Olive Garden "Are They Twins?" and me being SO smart said "No They are Sisters!" really smart ay. Just wanted to post a quick update!

Gone To The Beach
It is 12am and I am on the computer wide awake- We are finally here at the Beach and are SOO excited! We left at about 3:45ish and got here at 8:00 or so! Princess was really good and slept most of the way so we are VEERRY thankful for that!! When we got here we were all starving so we went to my all time favorite restraunt the Olive Garden!!!!!! We got back to the hotel and were watching AFV- Mickey Mouse came on the TV and Princess loves to see stuffed animals, books etc. I called her in to the living room to let her see her Mic Mouse. Keep in mind that I had the best intentions and thought she would love it- She came over to me and sat in my lap she took one look at him and FREAKED OUT- She started screaming and then had a death grip on me with her head on my shoulders- I felt awful- That was just a story of Princess nothing important- :) My ticker says 3 days until we come to the beach but my parents booked us 3 days as a family of 6- They wanted to spend some alone time with us before everyone comes down!!! (We are VEERY excited though) On Friday night Nana and Papa are coming!!! On Saturday Jodi, Craig, Max, Cole, and Kamden along with Deb, Ken, Christopher, Kara, and one of Princess' Xiushan Sisters, Meighan!!!!!!! Then through the week 3 other Xiushan sisters are coming down!!! We are SO excited!!!! I can't believe this time one year ago we were going CRAZY getting ready to go get our girl!!! I can't believe we have had Princess for almost a year!!!!!!! Hope you all have a great rest of the week!!!!

Well everyone go over to my Mom's new blog! She has had a baby jellybeans since we started the adoption process and decided to start a blog!! She is hoping that she will be able to update more often since blogger is a lot easier to work (for her and myself) She has been playing around with it and trying to figure stuff out so it is still "under construction." Hope you all will go check her new blog out!!! Leave me a comment if you do-

I don't know how much updating I will get to do since I am going to the Beach on Wednesday!! and have volleyball camp starting tomorrow from 8-5.............. Yea I am going to be exhausted!!! I am going to try to update at the beach but I don't know if I can get Internet- I can try to update on my Dad's blackberry but don't know if it will work...... Have a GREAT week!!!!!!!

Now for the Answers to the Polls!! 2 weeks ago- What color should we wear on the beach??? Answer- We are wearing White on the Beach and Turquoise (My Mom couldn't decide which one so most likely BOTH!!!) Recent Poll- Do you think Princess likes wearing Hair Bows? Answer- YES!!! We are not allowed to leave the house without a hair bow! Now I am out of questions to ask you, so do you guys have any to ask me (about myself, Princess or our crazy daily life)??? Just leave a comment and I will answer them as soon as I can in a post :-)

Photo Shoot!!!

Today we went and had pictures made of all of us together and then individual photos- I think they turned out great- Even considering that Princess was not in the mood to be taking pictures and being far from cooperative!!! I hope you like the pix!!!!! I didn't know what to call the collages with all of them so I just named them photo-shoot set 1 and 2- VERY ORIGINAL!!! lol

Beautiful Princess

Mix of Pix and Videos

My Baby

Here are some pix Kayla (Hayne, Princess, and Adam's babysitter--{ she does "watch" me too but she doesn't really "babysit" me}- Adam and Hayne are tooooooo much for me to handle my parents think!!!) Here are some pix and videos she took of Princess and Hayne today!! I don't know how well they will turn out b/c I am still unsure of what to do!! Hope you enjoy them! I will post more videos later but it takes a while to get them to upload! Listen reeeeallly closely to hear her belly laugh- She is sooo funny!!!!! In the 2nd video she is saying HEY and HEY BABE Hayne as you can hear and Kayla are telling her to say it!!!! She is such a handful these days!!!! But i am enjoying EVERY minute of it!! SOO enjoy the videos!!Sorry they are't very long! I don't know how loud the volume is b/c we took it with a camera/video camera!! SO TURN UP THE VOLUME AND PAUSE THE MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!

This is pretty loud!! Is it not hilarious "Haney toe Haney Toe" she looves toes for some odd reason!!
When she says "Get down Hayne Get down Hayne" she is telling him to get off "her" bed!!!

She is laughing and telling "haney" no at the same time!!!! Do you see her Princessy side yet!!!!! I hope you can now see somewhat how our Princess is!!!!!
