where have you been???

I know it's been awhile since I updated. I keep thinking "I need to blog about that" but then I forget or just don't have time. Oh well...here are some recent pictures. Enjoy!

We got together at a park in Flagler Beach last week. Lots of fun for seven little girlies. Here are Lili and her buddy Mary Joyce running...as usual. Mary Joyce is the little girl who was in the same orphange with Lili in Jiangxi. They have such fun together!

Every time she would come down this slide, she would throw her arms up in the air and holler, "Look out below!" She is such a Drama Queen!!

Okay, so this isn't a great picture. The sun was in their eyes and it was hard to get a good one of them. You can find some better pics at Mary Joyce's blog...click here. Her Mommy got MUCH better pictures of all the kids than I did!!

Aly has a new friend. Her name is Ellie and Aly looks forward to getting to see her each week at church. She INSISTS on saving her a seat in choir and was devestated when they didn't get put in the same small group! :-) Anyway, here are Aly and Ellie at a birthday party for Ellie's brother. It was a beautiful day, with new friends!


I think this might have been the highlight of the whole party for my muchkins. they actually got to eat a piece of chocolate cake covered in icing!!! They all but licked the plate clean. This doesn't happen often and they weren't about to waste an opportunity!


The girls decided they wanted to play in the water hose in the driveway one day last week. Sounds like fun to me!! So after we finished our schooling, they put on their swimsuits and out we went!

Here they are "painting" the driveway with water and a paint brush. Who knew they could enjoy a bucket of water and a paintbrush so much!!

We added a little chalk to the water and they came up with this lovely creation. They spent 30 minutes making this masterpiece.

Aly and her monkey impersonation. She has done this since she was a little girl. It has become her signature move!

Here is the latest "feel the love" picture. I slipped in to check on them the other night and this is what I found. I'm so glad that at least in sleep they love on each other!!

Well, that is the latest from the Wok.

Oh gosh, Shelley, Aly is growing up so much! She is losing her "baby face" as I remember it from when you and I were ANXIOUSLY waiting at the top of the railing waiting for Aly and Becca to come into the hotel lobby! You remember?!?!?

Love Lili and Aly's action pictures! Lili is getting bigger too! Is that more hair I see?!

I came to your blog through a rather interesting route. I was so glad, your girls are precious. One of my good friends also has a blog about her adopted children from South Korea. You might like her blog too! http://ourheartandseoul4ever.blogspot.com. They are preparing to get their third child soon! I love this blog community and how people can become linked in such a special way! Very nice blog!
