Reasons to Celebrate!

Today marks two years since Rob and Uncle Jim hopped on a plane to Beijing. They were fortunate to be on a flight that took them clear over the North Pole, so it did make for a slightly shorter trip to China. Jim and Gerry sat with us in church on Sunday and I had to laugh as I heard Rob say, "Yeah, I really wanted to come home when I was in China, but I'd go back in a heart beat to bring home another one." Heh, heh, a little like childbirth, that pain really does go away:)

Emily's teacher is expecting her first child any day now. We had the honor of surprising her with a fabulous shower last Friday. The kids had a ball and she was truly blessed and surprised by the outpouring of love and well wishes for her expanding family. We are very grateful for you Mrs. Morrison. We will pray for you as you begin this new adventure and we are grateful to Mrs. D, who will take excellent care of your students as you enjoy your son.

I think I followed your journey --hard to believe it's been two years already! But I agree -- look how little cute Emily was back then! So nice of you to take such good care of her teacher!

Oh what a sweet picture with the class....that must have been such a special treat for her! That plate is just precious!
I can't believe how little Emily looks in that first picture! lol How amazing it must be to look back on that time two years ago before Miss Hannah's arrival. :) So when is the trip back for another?!!
ps when we go, can you fancy me up one of those neat binders?! :)

Em looks so young in that photo! Can you believe it has been 2 years?

So nice of you to do that shower for the that plate!

Where does the time go? It is hard to believe it has been 2 years already. Emily does look so tiny back then.

And, how sweet to give Emily's teacher a shower. Speaking as a teacher by profession, and a current 35 weeks pregnant mom-to-be, I have huge respect for anyone who can teach school up to their delivery date. I don't know how they do it. Thankfully, I've been a SAHM during both of my pregnancies.

I can't believe how young Em looks in that first photo. I can't believe it has been two years for you! We're coming up on our referral anniversary (4/9). So much has happened in these past two years. I'm so blessed that one of those things is our new friendship. :)

Michelle said...

In a heart beat, eh? Hey, it's in writing. I'm just saying... ;)

I can't get over how young Emily looks in that picture. REALLY young for just two years ago. She was adorable then... and now!
