Rag Doll

So today was my monthly breakfast with the girls and it was terrific as usual. The best part was when Kim gave me a present for Rachel. I knew about it, just didn't know when it was coming! Kim's mom is an amazing seamstress. Before we left for China, Kim told me to bring her some material. Her mom was making hand made Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls for Rachel! So while we were in Guangzhou, I picked up a really pretty silk material. Well today, I got to see the finished product! They are amazing. Each hair is hand stitched to the head and all the clothing is made by hand as well! And Rachel seemed to really love getting them too! I even had a hard time getting her out of the activity chair to put her in for her nap because she was busy talking to the dolls! Too cute!



Tonite we are going to my parents house to finally do our gift exchange with them (since we were away for the holidays). We actually got our big gift already... a big rolling ice chest to use during our parties (we have been borrowing one from a friend every year for our Shrimp Boils) so it will be just a little exchange for us, but I'm sure Rachel will make out great as usual!

We are the proud parents of a beautiful little girl. I have not stopped smiling since the moment they placed her in my arms. We adopted her Sept 2008 and it's been nothing but wonderful! She is the best reason to open my eyes every day! Currently living in SW Florida. I've also become a MAJOR Twilight junkie, so now I'm told I'm a TWI-MOM & I LOVE it!
