Love you like crazy cakes!

Natalie and I did a themed book shoot for a modeling magazine--our mission was to capture the essence of the cover of the adoption book "I Love You Like Crazy Cakes." What do you think? I think we nailed it!

Santa Claus and the candy houses

Every year our Families with Children from China group has a Candy House party right before Christmas. Our group started back in 2006 when we brought Olivia home from China and a core of us have gotten together regularly ever since. We celebrate the Chinese festivals and the American holidays--the girls and boys invite each other to birthday parties and they have become a great group of friends.

This year we had a special guest to the party--Santa!

Leaf Piles!

We had a spell of winter before I got leaf pile photos with my girls this fall. In fact, the leaves hadn't fallen off the trees yet before that freaky snowstorm on October 29th so once they did fall in November we finally got out the rakes and make some leaf piles!
