I love VBS it is amazing and fun!
Backward day!
I made this cross for my mom.
She really liked it and thinks
it is beautiful!

It has John 3:16 on the back
For God so loved the world that He gave
His one and only Son. That who ever
believes in Him shall not perish but
have eternal life.
My little sister Chloe wanted to go.
She has to wait until next year.

Very Animated!

Her reaction surprised us! I wish we had the
video camera going. The pictures really don't
capture her excitement.  She actually started jumping
 up and down with excitement squealing and chattering
away in Chinese and a few English words.
LOOK Sarah.....Can you believe it!?!

"Look Momma!!"
Daddy stepped out of the room not realizing
she was going to open another gift.
"Daddy, Daddy come!!"
 I need to sit!
(Couldn't get these
3 pics in the correct order. GRRRR)
She couldn't get them out of the box fast enough!
Putting them on right away!
Then she became shy.

I Think She Likes It

The other night I bought Chloe a new bathing suit,
flip flops and swimming vest. Chloe had to try
everything on and once she had it on she
 did NOT want to take it off.
 She finally gave in and put her pajamas on.
 In the morning a naked little girl woke me up
 holding her new bathing suit, flip flops and vest.
She wanted them on right away. 

No more holding mommy!

"Look what I can do Daddy!"
 very excited!!!!
A month ago this little sweetheart hated to get in any kind of water.

One Month Ago & Now!

A month ago not to sure or happy about what is going on.
God turned this frown to a ............
Beautiful smile.

If I don't look maybe she will go away or I can escape her tight hold on me.
Only God!!!

The Princess And Her Baths

Since we have come home the little princess loves taking a bath.
Still not so thrilled with getting her hair washed.
 After her bath I wrapped her in this princess towel 

and ever time I would try to remove it to comb
her hair she would put the crown right back
 on her head.
 She was willing to get in the strange big bathtub.
Today she was trying to follow Sarah kicking and moving
her arms as fast as she could trying to catch up with her.
She didn't get very far with me holding her tummy to help 
her keep balanced and until she learns to keep her head up
a little better.

Later as I was holding her in the shallow end 
of the pool
 I noticed she had become sooooo relaxed I lifted her 
sunglasses and she was sound asleep in my arms.
Makes me think of a verse in the song
 by Steven Curtis Chapman
When Love Takes You In
When love takes you home and says you belong here.
The loneliness ends and a new life begins.
When love takes you in.

Checking Out Things & Many First's

Still tired after our nap on the last flight.
She fell asleep before the plane even started 
to move.
Checking out her bedroom she is sharing with Jaden.
Not sure what all of this stuff is.
Rides Flintstone style.
Legs are a little short, can't quite reach the
pedals yet.
Not sure what this thing is.  I will just copy sissy.
Loving playing in the sand!
Making sand cakes and even had a sample.
I do think she thought it was a little gritty.
She is a wonderful little mommy.
Loves her sisters wild and crazy driving!
Playing dress up is fun!
