The Gour Family Signing In
The Craft Table
Grace's Craft! She was very proud of it.
We did win a door prize. They were waffle sticks. And they were very good.
Grace was asleep on the way out the door, they even gave all the kids a red envelope with a dollar which is a tradition in China for the new year.
I did finally talk to the school, they will be doing testing the first couple of weeks in March. So please pray that Grace gets in. She is good with the Capital letters but not the lower case. She can count but does not recognize all of the numbers. Work to be done over the next two weeks.
Do you ever wonder what your kids are doing when you are not around. Well I downloaded my pics from the camera (oh and FYI, I have pics of mclaurns party on my camera, the stooge that I am didn't have my card in the camera so they are on the hard drive and I cant locate the cord, it was a DUH moment!!) sorry back to Paul Paul. I downloaded the pics and look here!
A boy and his truck (well not his yet)
On another note, we've been invited to attend an upcoming fundrising dinner for Half the Sky at the Daniel Island Club on March 1st. I'm very excited.
Day Two, Aunt Bonny, Uncle Brian, Mikey and Ashlee sent her a card.
And the the third Day, ????? Her Daddy!!!!!! You should have heard her, For Me, My Daddy!!!!!! Needless to say that the key to his heart is locked safely inside this little girl.
When she got up this morning, her daddy gave her a heart shaped box of candy.
I hope everyone has a very Happy Valentines! We're planning our first night away from Grace, we'll see how it goes.

And what office room is complete with out toys???
And here is my cork board, can you see the picture on there.
How about this, you can even see I've wrote the date on it. You would think my husband would have noticed by now?????? See, now he cant say he wasnt notified of our upcoming vacation. :) :) :)
Just a random picture of Baby Noah. This child's head is made of stone, be very careful when going to give him a kiss. He finds it funny to headbutt you.
I finally heard back from Gracie's test. They are some type of bugs. However there are 80,000 different types of bugs, (did you know that - that's about 79,900 too many). She has called in a daily med, actually two of them. And she said not to let her outside without bug spray!!!! Oh joy. Good thing, I was planning on her being a dancer.
Grace, PaulPaul and I are all fighting some type of cold/flu, which makes for so much fun. My boss told me I had better not be getting sick again!
I've got to go cook a cake, my daddy is coming over for his birthday tonight. Maybe I'll find the strenght to clean some also.
Tomorrow we are (health permitting) attending our very first FCC (families with Chinese Children) event. I'm really excited.
And next Saturday, 10 months after bringing my baby home, we're planning on leaving her overnight for the first time. Its valentines, so Paul and I are planning on going off for the night, not so far that we couldn't get home quickly if we needed to. So say a prayer for PaulPaul, he and Grace have gotten pretty close, so it should be fine.
Yesterday, we went to Walmart and Paul had left the back seat up in the back of the van, I was trying to put it down and I said outloud, I'm gonna kill him! Grace said, Who Momma? I said PaulPaul, she got so upset, but Momma, "He's my Brother"!!!! IT WAS THE CUTEST THING!!!!
Well I've rambled enough, have a great weekend.

February….the month of friends, love, and hearts. What better time than to give and receive the Friendship award.
I tried to get pictures of the red ones, but you cant see them in the pictures
This is what they end up looking like and the ones on her legs she is scratching.
