Today is our second last day of our Christmas break and we headed to the ski hill to try out the slopes. This was Maya's first time ever skiing and she was good sport about it all. We finally conquered the dreaded T-bar, which definitely made the experience more enjoyable - for both of us!!! (My arms and body will definitely be feeling the pain of trying to manoeuver an almost five year old and hold on to the t-bar at the same time!)
Maya LOVES to wear skirts and dresses and truly enjoyed wearing this outfit to Nursery School one day not too long ago.
The Mission Group that was volunteering at Maya's Social Welfare Institute when she was 4 1/2 months old and who returned to China when we were there a year later are returning once again to Hengfeng this June. I can't wait to follow their trip! We were fortunate enough to have been able to meet up with Julie, Becki and their group while we were all in China. What are the chances of us being in China at the same time??? Maya's baby pictures are still on their blog. I just love reading it and looking back! www.reachingheartsinchina.org
Our Forever Family Day is coming up on the 31st and memories are returning to my mind. What an experience we have had! I can't believe it has be three years already! We are all so blessed and thankful for the little girl who has enriched our lives. Truly amazing!
We had such a super Halloween! The weather was beautiful, Maya had napped that afternoon, so she had a great time trick-or-treating! She wore her costume for about 12 hours that day. The morning began with Nursery School, then daycare in the afternoon and FINALLY trick-or-treating.
Here is our alternate blog that we used while we were in China. You can also find it at the bottom of my list of blogs on this page. Blogger didn't work in China - it's actually blocked, as is youtube. There are many photos as well as daily entries that you may enjoy taking a look at and reading.
There are also different types of blogs that I have created and am playing around with listed at the bottom of this page. Please check them out, too!
