Gotcha Day Anniversary #3

"We made a wish and you came true."

This past week was our 3rd Gotcha Day with my "Dumpling".  The past three years have gone by so fast but it feels like she has been with us forever. She loves everyone in our family and just enjoys life.  I love hearing her sing, her eyes just sparkle!  It's been so much fun having her live only an hour away from us for the past 2 months.  I wish it could last forever!

Under The Lights

"Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels."

Chloe finally made it to a "T-Ball" game.  It was under the lights and she had so  much fun.  We had  more fun watching her.  I think she was a little nervous until she hit the ball, after that, everything was a piece of cake.

She is a girly girl, and loves having her hair done , her nails polished, wearing dresses and tutus, but when she put on that uniform, she was a BALLPLAYER!  She was down in the dirt and her hands and unform were filthy.  One of the dads said she was the "Player of the Game."  I'll agree with that!

Dollar Tree Purchase

"Joy is the flower that blooms when you do."
Another purchase from the Dollar Tree!  She tried and tried, but just couldn't quite do it.  No one could show her what to do, she had to do it BY HERSELF!

"Number 9 means you are forgiving and an introvert.  Some of it's strengths include love and compassion, brotherhood of mankind, having big opportunities in life and a capacity for living by the Divine Standards.

Our ninth grandchildren will be arriving around December 5th. Jake and Jen surprised us with the news this week.  Christmas is such a wonderful time to welcome a new baby into the family.  We have 4 girls and 4 boys, what will the tie-breaker be?!!
