Too cute to decide

I must decide whether to give the fam the serious picture or the smiling picture. I love them ALL of course, but the gmoms need something. I have always said that an up close picture is better for our mothers, but that is really such a cute smile. I will post some more of the santa pics tomorrow. The white background kind of washed her out....probably won't get too many of those.

Can't believe that she will be two next week!! She was staying with my mother last week and was playing hide and seek with the blocks....behind her back. She would put a block behind her back and raise her arms to say "where did it go?" then reach around behind her and take it out and belly laugh!! She has such a quick sense of humor. She has been so good about not touching the presents under the tree. I guess this will be the only yr for that.
If you are traveling this season, please be careful and don't take chances. We all have had such an amazing and life changing year. There have been unbelievable highs and horrible lows. We must remember what is important in life and hold them closer than ever. We must celebrate our first Chinese New Year healthy and happy.
I thank all of you for following our journey this yr and holding us close to your hearts and including us in your prayers. Your support and love has been a motivating factor in our progress this yr.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love all the pictures but my vote is for the one with the big smile-- you can really see the happiness in her eyes!

We had the same dilemma, serious or smile, we did both! Those smiles light up the world, and heal hearts. I know because Claire Ling's and Mary's smiles heal mine (and their grandfather's). The pics are absolutely adorable!

love you!!

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
