Playing in the Leaves

These leaves don't belong on the ground...JiaLi and Edward playing in the leaves but Edward didn't really want pictures today. Oh well..I wanted to share JiaLi:) She seriously loves leaves. Also wanted to say Go Sox! I have had a spot on the couch and Joe has been wanting to go up to our room to watch the game but I don't want to ruin the routine. Joe is a fair-weather Sox fan but he has enjoyed watching the playoffs! So have the kids--They don't stay up late and usually fall asleep anyway but it's been fun. They race into our room the next morning asking who won and what the score was and who played the best and on and on. Today is Red Sox day at Joseph's and Edward's school. It drives me crazy but half way through the day JiaLi loses her socks (not really but she knows she can't come outside without shoes and I am usually very happy to see at least shoes on her feet.) Those who were in China with JiaLi know that she never wore her shoes. Things haven't changed much. Now to just get these rocks out... Mommyto4treasures is at it again. She fixed our header with a newer and larger picture of the kids. This is our new favorite picture--my husband and I are both using this as our computer background. Thank YOu!!!! Now I need to focus on a picture for Christmas. The rate we are going I might need to use this one. I was all set the weekend of the birthday to get a picture of the kids when Danny came home from school the end of the week with a black eye. No, he was not in a fight. It actually happened during his Chorus class. The kids need to put their lapdesks in a certain location and he had done this when one of the other kids swinging his desk back and forth hit Danny in the eye. It was the kind of thing Danny was facing one way and turned right into the desk. We are thankful it got him where it did and not in the eye!!!

Oh JiaLi...shoes are no fun. Annslee is barefoot half the time..daddy says I am making a hillbilly out of her LOL Yeah, we had to go looking for JiaLi's shoes more than once in China : ) I just kept telling Joe that you would kill him if he lost the shoes that she was wearing when she came from the SWI....

Love the new header and pic : )

great pics, sometimes Jacob is not in the mood for pics either.

Caitlyn loves the thought of shoes and wants them but doesn't keep them on long either.

That Connie is such a sweetie! Lottie hates shoes and never even makes it out of church with them on! The deacons at church used to tease me and tell me they were going to take up a love offering for Lottie to have some shoes! LOL
