Abby and Josh

I love how things just work out. Abby could have easily been the only little cousin in our family. Luckily for us Cousin Jushua (AKA Joshie) joined the family just a few months after Abby got home from China. These two are about 18 months or so apart and truly just like "peas n carrots" :) I love that they will grow up together and they have plenty of Awesome older cousins that will look out for them :=O









I love them both :)

MY funny Valentine

Miss A was pretty excited about Valentines day. On Sunday we made a pink Valentines day cake :)
While it baked she worked on her Valentines for school.


After the cake cooled it was time for frosting and Valentine sprinkles :)

Yumm :=Q

So proud of her creation! (and really sporting some serious bed head) :O

Modeling her Valentines day attire.

This was after school. If you look closely she is sporting a red Hawaiian punch mustache :-O

Showing off her loot from her school party! I totally don't remember getting so much candy when I was a kid?

Sorting her loot and opening Mommy's Valentine bag :)

I think she likes her Tinkerbell flashlight :O


Time for some Valentine HUGS!


Silly girl!


How I love my funny Valentine!

School Valentine for Mommy (evidently she was not in a smiling mood :( And another Valentine for Mommy made at home :)

Happy New Year


And so it's been a while again. I really want to be a better blogger this year. I feel like I lost most of the last 6 months of 2010 as far as documenting goes. Abby is doing great. Growing like a weed and amazing me daily with all the things she has learned or does. I need to do a 411 post :) so I don't forget it all. below some shots of our house all decorated for CNY. We don't have much but all of what we have (minus the red garland) was purchased while in China. I plan to get more decorations from China Sprout in the future. They have some beautiful things.





Sporting her China duds for CNY at school :)

CNY presents from Mommy after school.

red envelopes with chocolate coins inside and old Chinese coins.




They were told to bring a rabbit to school for year of the rabit. They made lanterns and marched in a parade :)


Eating long noodles for good luck :)



The week before she went to a local CNY celebration with Meema. Mommy had to work but we are hoping to see some pictures soon HINT HINT Meema.





Gung Hay Fat Choy!!!
