They smell good too!
Sunday, Sarah and I went outside to cut some hydrangeas from the yard. Our shrubs are growing like crazy, so I figured we should take advantage of them while they are in bloom. A couple of snips later and we had enough to make a beautiful arrangement for our kitchen island.
Sarah was a big help……except once we got in the house, she didn’t want to give up the flowers…..she wanted to run around the house with them like she did in the yard…..we lost one along the way, but there were plenty more where that one came from!
The little yellow dress………this dress is one of my favorites and it has been sitting in her closet for over 2 years…..it was a gift from my Aunt Betty. She gave it to us right after our paperwork was sent to China….it has always held a special place in my heart……Betty is my godmother and has endured her own pain while waiting to adopt, so to me, this dress is very special. The dress was intended for our China Baby, but I could not hold onto it any longer….it fits Sarah perfectly……the reality is that we don’t know when we will be going to China and we have no idea how old the baby will be when she is referred to us, so it seemed foolish to save this pretty little number! I am glad that Sarah was able to wear it…..it is so cute and perfect for running around on a hot summer day!
As for Nick…..he came back home this morning…..we really missed him while we were gone, but he had a fun week with his Dad, Step Mom, and new little brother. I got some great photos of the brother and sister reunion this morning…..Sarah was more than thrilled to see him after a week apart…….Check back tomorrow for the photos!
