Gonna Buy Me a Dog

I am always posting pictures of Rach & her best friend, our cute pup Penny... well, this time I thought I'd post a video of Penny & her favorite past time... playing HOSE!
If it were up to her, this would be done every single day... but if it were, I think that mud pit would be ten times bigger!!

I'm also posting some pictures of Rachel & Penny cuddling.  They are truly the best of friends!

Penny gets her revenge... usually Rachel is laying on top of her... this time, the roles are reversed!  It seems Rachel makes a nice comfy pillow!

Silly Girl

Today was just a day for being totally silly.  
Rachel wanted to play goofy little games today, hanging upside like a monkey... 
Doing anything she could do to just be funny, crazy, & FUN! 
Wearing Dora Stickers
Just the perfect day for silly, happy, funny kids to be their silliest...

New Year's Day

Xin Nian Kuai Le (Happy New Year)

It's Chinese New Year, so tonight we all got dressed in our Chinese clothing to go out for dinner to a new restaurant we found.  Very disappointed to realize that there were no CNY celebrations going on anywhere locally.  We had thought at least one of the Chinese restaurants in town would have done something special, but we made our own good time... 

Traditionally served on CNY, we had Peking Duck.  We also all shared a Pu Pu Platter (so we could sample a variety of things from this new prospective eating establishment!) and we had Moo Shu Pork.  The staff was VERY nice & so interested in our little Rachel.  Before we left, the manager handed her a red envelope with a $2 bill in it.  She was VERY excited, of course! 

She also couldn't wait till we were outside so she could get her picture taken! (Her daddy took one of she & I together, but my head got chopped off! LOL)

I couldn't get over just how grown up my little princess looked!

She's growing up to be a beautiful young lady.  TOO SOON!!!!

Our Story

My photo
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!
