What a Difference 2 Years Makes!

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.
