My Mom

When the phone rings in the wee hours of the morning at our house something is usually wrong.  Riiiiiiiiiinnnnggg.....   My heart jumped as Marty answered the phone.  "Here I'll let you talk to mom...."

It was Josh and my mom was having a heart attack. 

She is fine now and she is home.   Praise God! 

Greetings From China

We were so thrilled to receive a Christmas greeting from the Guilin SWI where our girls lived until we brought them home.  :)

Polar Express Pajama Day

BinBin was soooooo excited to wear her cute pink Christmas kitty pajamas to school today!  All of the children in her class are wearing their pj's and their teacher Ms. Smith is going to read The Polar Express to them.  They are having hot cocoa and cookies for their snack and this afternoon they will be watching The Polar Express movie.  Fun, fun, fun!!! 
I almost forgot to get a photo of her and snapped this one at the last minute with my phone.

It's Santa!

Brinley and Bailey had appointments at the Medical University today.  We left the building at about 4:30 and were enjoying our walk back to the parking garage. The girls were being very silly and I'd just said, "Girls, you need to behave."  I looked up and saw Santa walking toward us and said, "I see Santa!".  The girls were too busy being silly to hear me so in a much louder voice I said, "I SEE SANTA!".  They looked up and saw him, too.  By this time he was very close. He waved to them like he was seeing a friend he hadn't seen in many years and knelt down on the sidewalk. They both went running to him, grinning from ear to ear.  He asked them if they were being good and told them he'd be seeing them soon. I quickly took some photos and Santa was gone again in an instant.  What a treat to see Santa right there on the street in Charleston! A wonderful memory was made for all of us in those few minutes.

It's A Girl!!!

For my friend "E", that is! I am so excited I can't stand it!!! This family has been waiting, hoping, dreaming about adding another little one to their family and doors have opened and closed and hearts have been broken and healed along the way. NOW the perfect tiny little girl is going to be loved and snuggled and spoiled rotten by a mama who will love her to the moon and back, a daddy who will read her bedtime stories and a big sister who will adore her and teach her all about tea parties and playing dress up! Praise God for blessing my friends with this precious child.  :)
They leave on the 9th to bring Sweet Pea home!
