ER woke up in a bad mood. I guess Christmas Eve wore her out. She was just not too interested in what Santa brought. She said she was just too tired. My family came to my house for Christmas breakfast and she soon got excited. It was a great, relaxing day for all. I just love my family and my life.
We all went to my Mom's house for Christmas eve food, fun, and presents. ER had a great time and got lots of cool stuff. We sure love Christmas around here! Then we went home to get ready for Santa. We laid out the milk and cookies by the fireplace so he would not miss them. ( ER had to get a little sample). We did not figure he would mind. Then off to bed we went- about 3 hours after our normal bedtime. We had one tired girl.

2 years ago today we were in Chongqing City, China nervously waiting in the lobby of the hotel. I held a small stuffed bee in my hand and Vanous had the video camera. The babies came in through the lobby doors and I saw my ER for the first time. She was quiet and subdued. Not the ER that we all know and love. It did not take long for her to shine. And she has been shining ever since. Happy Adoption Day my princess. We love you sooooo much!!!!!!

ER got to plant her own bean seeds back in May at my parents house. Believe it or not- her plants came up and had lots of beans on them. She got to pick them herself and we put them in with my canning batch. We love green beans around here.

We, and I do mean all of us started back to school on Wednesday. Hubby and I to our teaching jobs, and ER to daycare for the first time. She is staying with a woman I go to church with who keeps 9 other kids. She LOVES it!!!!! Friday night we attended a swim party for the "Families with Children from China". ER had a great time.

We have been having a great time this summer. We have taken ER to the Nashville Zoo, participated in Bible School, and took a trip to the Smokey Mts. She loves being with us everyday and wears me out pretty quickly. But I love every minute!!!

We are having a great time this summer already. We took a short trip to watch the State Fastpitch softball tourney and have been playing outside every chance we get. ER got a new T-ball set from her daddy and has already started "training". We have a kiddie pool that she loves to splash in and she loves to take nature walks. ER got a new hair do set and is working hard on dad's hair. ( he needs a new do bad)... We love summer!!!

We have been having lots of fun lately with ER. She is growing fast and getting more beautiful every day. We spent Mother's day with family and ER presented me with a flower she picked out herself. We celebrated Decoration/Children's day at my church and ER was gorgeous in her dress covered with roses. And we had some girly time while painting our toenails and celebrating the fact that ER's hair will finally fit into a ponytail-- barely. Both hubby and I get out of school next week for the summer so we should post more often. Enjoy.
