What a Difference 2 Years Makes!

Jena, Kacey, Zoe, Molly, Claire
Jena, Kacey, Claire

Two years makes a HUGE difference but some things remain the same:

  1. We adore our girls

  2. We love traveling together

  3. We still can't get the girls to smile in the same picture even if it is only 5 of the 10 and it's a lawn chair instead of a red couch!

What a wonderful time we had celebrating our 2 year gotcha day anniversary at Walt Disney World. The joy at seeing the girls together happy, healthy and beautiful was just overwhelming. It kind of felt like China I was weepy the entire 3 days. I don't think that there could have been a better place and better group to spend our anniversary with. While we have kept up by BLOG and email since returning there is nothing better than actually being able to kiss all those sweet cheeks and listen to their wonderful voices celebrating the joys of the happiest place on earth! The bonus of having their sisters, brothers and grandparents was just the icing on the cake.

3 of us spent the entire weekend together and were joined by the "big family" for a wonderful pool party on Saturday night. What a sight all our beautiful black heads were in the pool we were like magnets 2 more families with children from China stopped by for crackers and cheese as they happened by and were so happy to meet everyone.

Our other 5 families were certainly missed but we know that they were celebrating wherever they were. A beautiful photo of sweet Ava was in the mailbox when we returned home and will be a great addition to the photo album.

They say the more things change the more they stay the same I'm not so sure about that. Our changes were huge 2 years ago and our lives were so very blessed and enriched by our girls that we will never be the same.

Thank you Kacey, Jena, Claire, Zoe & Molly (and those at home) for brightening not only our weekend but our entire lives by your addition to our families. We love you all.

More pictures on the way...

Weekend in Boca

Nana Susan, Sue & Marlene
Next photo features the entire gang (minus Bob who was taking the photo) including our sweet newlywed Crystal holding Kacey!

Sue & I have been friends since we were 13 years old which may explain why we showed up in matching outfits :)

We had a wonderful but busy weekend in Boca we got to see Bobby play in two soccer games vs. Lynn University and visit with our friends Sue, Marlene, Crystal and Conner. It is always great to catch up.

We are off to Disney this weekend for a reunion of our China Travel Group 5 of the 9 families will be there sometime during the weekend. Can't wait!

Here are a few pictures from last weekend's trip...

More photos...the Columbia and Kacey

l to r Gracie, Emerson, Hunter & Kacey

What's up with that head tilt?

I Got A New Camera...

So of course I had to try it out on my favorite model. The conversation goes like this Kacey I would like to take some pictures of you with my new camera Kacey says; "ok mom let me get my tiara and I'll be ready". There may be something very wrong with that but I'm just going to let it go for now I did draw the line at wearing it to the store after our photo shoot. I'm going to have to use a couple different post since I couldn't figure out how to adjust my photos down from GINORMOUS I've finally beat that one!

Also I took a photo of the kids at the Columbia restaurant we went with Emme, Grace & Hunter to eat DELICIOUS Spanish food and see the Flaminco Dancers! Kacey raised her hand when they asked for volunteers and headed to the stage to dance at the end of the show she just marched up (well half way there she wanted me to follow her) and walked up the stairs to dance. She thought the male dancer was a prince so it was very appealing to her. She twirled and danced then made a lovely exit. My mom asked if I took pictures and of course I was so shocked that I didn't even have time to think much less grab my camera. Kacey didn't even have her shoes on she had kicked them off under the table during dinner! What a moment. The photos will be on the next post.
