A Big Day for Eli...

Today was a big day for Eli. We went to Chucky Cheese (yes, if you know me you are completely shocked by this revelation). I did go to Chucky Cheese. He loved it and had a blast.

Then we went to the mall to see the Easter Bunny. He was so excited about getting to see him, but when the moment arrived to actually talk with him...this is what we got. See Below. He was not liking the Bunny AT ALL. Those pictures were not taken at the same time...this is the response I got to 'smile'.



Here are some photos from Chucky Cheese...just to prove I was there.



Welcome To The Saturday Morning Chat Group!


Good Morning Everyone! Welcome to the Saturday Morning Chat Group! I am hoping to hear some news today about Crystal. She is in Africa to bring Savannah Hope home. For updates on Crystal and Savannah, go to their family blog 'The Blessings Just Keep On Coming'.
If you want to see something that will bring a big smile to your face...go to Chinese Starfish. Many of the babies are posted in their Easter photos and I think you may just recognize some of the outfits they are wearing! I recognize one of the dresses that I sent! There are still four boxes here that need to be shipped out, so if you find it in your heart to make a donation to the postage fund, that would be so wonderful.
Anyone who wants a Sat Chat Sidebar Link, just let me know and I'll e-mail one over to you.

Starfish Update! Our First 6 Boxes Arrived at Starfish Today...

Great news everyone! Our boxes made it through customs and arrived at the Starfish Foster Home today. Below is an e-mail that I received from Amanda. I can't wait to see the pictures!


Dear Kimberley:
Thank you so much for everything. That was so awesome. I was so happy with all the things that you sent. The clothes were so beautiful and the babies are going to look so wonderful. I have to take some pictures and I will send them as soon as I have some time. I want to take some more pictures with the kids wearing the clothes. I have to leave for Shanghai tomorrow so I hope I get it done before then. I have to go back and delete all the sleepers I put on my wish list at amazon. You sent so many and that was just wonderful. I am also working on the Easter pictures, I hope I get that all done. I loved the bags you sent the clothes in. Those are wonderful for storage from season to season. Please thank everyone involved and I will send a better thank you soon.

Life, Love and Laughter,

THEY WON!


They won! It was a crazy exciting game. My throat is still a little tender from cheering. Both teams were definitely playing a great game. There were quite a few penalties though on our side. Zach was in the box once. The final score was 5-7, but really, the last goal was scored very close to the end and if it had been the other teams goal the game would have gone into overtime. I am very proud of all of the players. What amazing season!
I will hopefully get to posting some great game photos today. We didn't get home until late.
