Happy Gotcha Day, Anna!

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

Two years ago today, a red-faced, screaming 19 month old girl was placed in our arms in a hotel conference room in Nanning, Guangxi, China.

What a long way you’ve come, little girl!

We are so blessed to have you in our lives!  We couldn’t imagine living without you!

We celebrated with her favorite dinner of macaroni and cheese (homemade, thank you very much!), and a special dessert of “pupcakes.”  White only, with white frosting, which is all Anna will eat right now.  She eats chocolate everything else, but turns her nose up at chcolate cake.   I gave both Anna and Will their own little plates with an assortment of decorating sugars so they could design their own toppings.  They had a good time with that.  Anna even ate the actual cake portion of both her cupcakes, so they must have been good!
