Happy Spring!!

We have had a great and busy weekend getting ready for Easter. It actually started last Sunday when we went to see the Easter Bunny...she wasn't scared a bit. We had a Easter egg hunt yesterday with the group Families with Children from Asia. We had a pot luck and did some crafts prior to games. As you will see below Shelby was impressive at the sack race and egg race. She wasn't to bad at finding eggs either. We were supposed to have a hunt after church today but it rained a lot last night so it is going to be next Saturday now. We did get to go to Hayden's birthday party and the kids all loved the firetruck that came. Shelby was pretty excited to hear the horns and sirens as it approached however after about 10 minutes it was "to loud" and we had to go back in. I've also included some bubble pictures...as you can see the super thick bubbles from Target are so cool. She's really gotten the hang of it now and loves bubble time. It's hard to believe it's been 8 1/2 months since we became a family...we can't imagine life without our girl!!!

Still waiting for Shelby...

Our wait for Shelby began on September 13, 2005. We are now very close to being with our angel. We hope to travel in early 2009. This has been a journey filled with many highs and lows. I want to take this oppportunity to thank everyone who has stood by me and prayed for us. My mom-she has been on this roller coaster from the first informational meeting and we take turns keeping each other grounded, my family-my grandma who helped me have the best nursery ever and my LA gang-for not giving up that they will soon have another niece and cousin, friends-way to many to name but I'm going to try (and if I leave someone out don't fret we will call it a paper pregnancy moment)-Lauri (all the cards), the Wardskis, Jen., Lisa, Sheri, Tiffany, my Hillcrest UMC friends...always patiently letting me cry, vent, and forever guess at what China will do next, and last but not least my work family-I can't even begin to express how they have kept me lifted up...from Sally starting her hair bow collection, Chinese New Year celebrations, Sebrina always keeping up with the rumor queen and marking the days off as we get them, and finally all the cards and pick me ups left quietly on my desk at the most needed times. They always know when the end of the month comes (referral time) I need a shoulder and pep talk and never waiver in staying positive. So thank you all again for what you have done and all that I know you will do until we have "Shelby Marie from Tennessee" (from the famous ? my dad had for her in her quilt scrapbook "Shelby Marie are you really from Tennessee...you look Chinese to me")
