Elementary School Program

Last night Ivy, Katy, Aneyah and Fayth had their school program.  Little did we know, but found out quickly, Ivy was one of the main characters in the play part.  The girls like to surprise us by not telling us all they are doing in a program.  We sure were surprised!  She did a great job and the program was wonderful!

Our First and Our 14th!

Fourteen years ago today An Qiuli also known as Mya Mae Qiuli became a part of our family.  She was our first daughter, our first adoption and our first experience with China.  To say we were blessed, would be an understatement!  This girl has enriched our lives every day for the last 14 years.  She may also be the reason I have a little more gray hair (ha,ha) but she is sooo worth it!
Mya, Happy Gotcha Day and we love you to the moon an back!
Below are selfies she took of herself at sometime with my phone.  I thought they were cute so I would share!  The photo say much about her larger than life personality!

Brynn's Birthday

Today was Brynn's first birthday since joining our family.  She has been excited for weeks about her birthday.  Her Mom has been pretty excited too.  I could wait to celebrate a birthday with Brynn.
She took cupcakes into school to share with her friends.  While at school, I picked up a Frozen themed cake for her I had ordered.  She was so excited when she came home and saw it.  After dinner she blew out the candles on her cake and opened her presents.  Her excitement was so beautiful!  She is such and amazing little girl!  I thank the Lord today for her Chinese parents that gave her life and for bringing her into our family!  We are so blessed!  Happy Birthday Brynn Yinai!

Ivy Friend Birthday Party

Ivy's Birthday is officially Tuesday but she celebrated with her friends Friday.  One of her friend's is a cheerleader with Maylin and she had to cheer a game for the first part of Friday evening.  It was an away game.  So, Ivy and one of her friends painted pottery.  They made some really cute mugs at Peace, Love and Pottery.

The two girls requested Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches for dinner.  Not too hard to make at all:)  Ivy's second friend joined them about 9:00.  They watched movies and had lots of munchies.  I don't think they got much sleep but that is what spending the night with friends is about.  Below is the cupcakes they ate!
