A Half Day

The kids had a half day of school one day this week and the boys were thrilled that Mommy was able to babysit the neighbors for the afternoon. The top picture is taken through a screen--it just got too cold outside and Mommy and JiaLi had to go in;) Jenise was invited over a friend's and when she left, Joseph yelled out "yes, it's all boys!!" Poor JiaLi got all sad and told him and I mean told him in her demanding voice(yes she has one)"it's not all boys!!" Lucky for us girls, my sister was working and her babysitter brought the kids over:) JiaLi could not have been more happy! I just love how Jessica is looking at JiaLi in the photo below--my sister's kids are so sweet:) Today they were over for playgroup and most of the group had left and Jessica wasn't sure what to do so JiaLi asked her if she wanted to play in her room(they like to build tents/forts) and Jessica was more than willing. As they were going up the stairs, JiaLi still had food in her mouth(she had been eating a bagel) and Jessica said to her "now make sure you chew what's in your mouth." It was just adorable! The girls though do like to play with their boy cousins too:) I love editing with Picasa--so much better:) We have been given clothes for JiaLi from so many of our friends and family. I can't get over how lucky we have been. I honestly have not had to buy a thing. One morning this week, I had JiaLi try on some dresses that were passed down. So once again, I grab the camera and what does she grab but a matchbox car. I still thought the picture was so sweet. Almost could imagine the car as a flower or something girly;)
