FCC Moon Festival

I and my dear friend T planned our local FCC Moon Festival. We had heard that most of the older kids didn't want to attend most FCC functions because it seemed that we catered to the younger kids which once we thought about it was true. So we thought and came up with some things that included both older and younger kids. There was a scavenger hunt, a hayride to the pumpkin patch, a corn maze and face painting. We also had a lantern parade. Since the Moon Festival is about family and thanksgiving, we decided to do something to honor our "Chinese" Families. We had red balloons and the children wrote a note to their birthparents. The notes were then tied to the balloons and released just before the lantern parade. Sophia did not quite like the idea of her balloon being gone but once we gave her a new one she was fine. We had a great time but are glad the planning and preparation is finished -- until next year that is.

Well, I am having some trouble uploading the pictures I want to but I will try again later! Update: I was able to add 2 before I got the error message. Also, I don't have many really good pictures since hubby was taking them instead of me......

Woo hoo!!! We are......

......a diaper free house ~~ both day AND night!!!! Sophia has been waking up dry most nights and even waking up in the middle of the night to go potty. So, when we ran out of her size diapers, we decided that instead of buying more we would just bite the bullet and make the switch and go panties all the time!! After 2 days, she is still dry and can hold it forever!! I hope the momentum keeps going! We are so proud of our girl.

A House Divided.....

GO BIG BLUE!!!!! Last weekend was the annual UK-UofL football game. In previous years, it has been played as the first game for each school however this year UK wanted to play it as the 3rd game. Well, as luck would have it that proved to be a wonderful choice as the Wildcats scored a touchdown with 28 seconds left in the 4th quater to win the game 40 -34!!! Louisville did well with a new coach this year but the cats came out on top! WOO HOO!!! I love those CATS!!!!

2 Years ago today......

.....we saw Sophia's face for the first time. It was an amazing day and one I will never forget. I was the second to post on our DTC yahoo group that had gotten the call - I was a close second to a travelmate of ours! I took pictures of Sophia holding her referral picture and I am amazed at how she has grown over the last 2 years.
