Summer 2011


Well I am so behind on updating our blog and what has been happening since Michael came home a little over 3 months ago.

First, we celebrated our 10 year anniversary in July and had a party to celebrate and actually renewed our vows and took family vows at the same park we got married at 10 years ago.  I wore the same shoes I wore on our wedding day.  They were an eyelet tennis shoe with lace ties.  :D  We even had the same gal that made our wedding cake make our cake this time.


Pastor Gary presided over our vows and it was truly magical.  Friends and family came and we just celebrated and had a wonderful day!







We celebrated the Autumn moon festival this year at the park with other families that all have adopted from China.  It was so great to meet new people and enjoy a nice summer evening enjoying a pot luck and moon cakes and even the story behind why the moon festival is celebrated.   The kidss then had a lantern parade and the moon was out and beautiful!




 




Then came Mister's birthday.  He turned 4 on Sept 18th, he shares the same birthday as his uncle Danny that passed away 6 years ago.  I made his Hot Wheels themed cake and just celebrated Mister.  Hard to beleive he's 4 already!





Then 2 weeks later we were celebrating Michael's birthday on Sept 30th.  We now have another teenager in the house.  He turned the big 13!  He ordered a Transformer themed cake and we went to the family movie night at church and during intermission, everyone sang Hapy Birthday to Michael.  It was great that friends were able to come and be a part of his special day!











So now we are caught up and hopefully I will do better with posting things on time.  :D
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
