Three Years Since We've Been Logged in with China

Denise and her friend, Lisa, had planned on coming into town for a visit on her birthday.  They stayed just over the weekend...
We went to my sister, Lisa's, house to celebrate our sister Holly's birthday a day early...Holly and Lisa both surprised Denise with a little something for her since it was officially the 14th and Denise's birthday.
Have been doing these crackers ever since Christmas for birthdays.  Got them to where they WILL pop because of using tissue paper to wrap them!  Lots of fun!!!

When we walked into Lisa's house...Holly and Lisa both screamed SURPRISE and were taking pictures of me.  I thought, well, they are just acting crazy as usual...then Lisa said, "you knew."  Well...I did not know, was completely surprised and they totally caught me off guard...they were throwing us a baby shower...just them.  They went all out.  Dennis and I could not believe what all they did for us... 

The cake says Welcome Emma
Gotta love all of the Hello Kitty...
 And these two are the master mind's behind all of this...

They had given us so much and done so much already and then they brought out this huge gift.  It's a convertible car seat.  We were so shocked.  
We are still in shock and cannot believe what all they did for us...Dennis and I both keep talking about it.  We're both feeling pretty anxious.  I've never seen Dennis so overwhelmed before, but so happy and excited...
Lisa is going to be such a good aunt...she is soooo excited.  Holly and everyone...but it's just cute to see the excitement as the time "for real" approaches...
The Hello Kitty crown was for me...LOL!

My niece was getting rid of her stuffed animals, and Holly got this Hello Kitty from her.  It is one of the first Hello Kitties from when she first came out over 30 years ago...she's the original from D.H. Holmes and in great shape.  
More family shots...

The weekend went by so fast.  Denise and her friend, Lisa, left yesterday, so we'll start putting the things we got for Emma in her room and soon put the car seat in my car.  This was just something that Holly and Lisa wanted to do for us before our trip.  What is so cool about the day they did this is that that day 3/14/2009 is exactly 3 years since we've been logged in with China.

...BUT...WE plan on having a big welcome party/shower when we return with Emma at our house.  Probably a couple of weeks after we return.

It's rumored that China may possibly cover more days these next two months.  So still waiting to find out.  I called a pediatrician referred to us by our doctor and she has seen internationally adopted children, so relieved to hear that.  And waiting to hear some news from our agency...asked them to give us any updates...so for now, we still wait...

Pin It!
