This and that...

Our friends and local FCC family, Nancy and Brian, are leaving early tomorrow morning for China! It's hard to believe that by tomorrow night they will be in Hong Kong. They will hold Lily for the very first time on Monday. Their dream of being parents is finally coming true...and they will make the most incredible parents! Nancy and Brian, our prayers will be with you and Lily over the next two weeks. I can't wait to see the first photo of the three of you as a family!

I've been a little lazy about posting lately, but I have a few photos I wanted to share. First, over Christmas I got a couple of cute ladybug things. My friend, Linda Marie, gave me this adorable pin set...


and this cute little lady made of almond paste.


Oh, and for Addy and Lucy, doggie fortune snookies. I especially like the one that says cats are not chew toys...that one's for Lucy. ;)


I was having lunch out at a Chinese restaurant with a friend and some of her family and the waiter gave her granddaughter these chopstick helpers.


You attach them to your chopsticks to make giant tweezers which are really easy to use. I think I need these for China! ;)

Those chopstick helpers look pretty cool. I'm actually learning how to use chopsticks pretty well but I'm sure I could still use some of those. Did she order them online?
Love the doggie fortune cookies too. I'm amazed at what people find out there !

Those are some very cool gifts! I saw a ladybug like that one, and some other cool marzipan creations, at Cost Plus World Market during the holidays. I think they are too pretty to eat!

I definitely need to be on the look out for the chopstick helpers; for the life of me I can't work those things and although we will be adopting from Vietnam, I definitely will need to use them if I hope to eat.
