I had a friend post this picture on a Yahoo group and amazingly, this little girl’s mother responded! I couldn’t believe it!!!! It seems that both of our daughters were very special to this man and his wife who work at the SWI. She sent me several pictures of DD that were taken previously to any I have. She even sent me some current pictures of her daughter. She’s a little older than DD. This is how they look now…Still cute as can be!
Although Gotcha Day was last Thursday, we celebrated today so that Daddy Darling could enjoy the day with us. We baked a chocolate cake, DD’s FAVORITE. Then, we went to eat Chinese food and on to Dixie’s to buy DD a Big Sis charm and a kitty charm for her Gotcha Day bracelet.
I can’t believe that we have had DD for 3 years. Time flies when you’re having fun. It just doesn’t seem possible. Adopting her was one of the biggest steps of faith that we have ever taken and we are so thankful that God has blessed us with her. We love our little Desheng Darling so much and look forward to many, many more Gotcha Day celebrations. There are pictures from our previous Gotcha Days, as well as today’s pictures in this slide show. She just gets more precious every day. Oops! The slide show is in the post above this one! ...oh pooh.

He has been a real trooper. He even went with us to play group on Monday.
Doodlebug and SpicyGirl had a great time Monday at the mall.
TUESDAY:Desheng Darling and Doodlebug wore their cute little leopard print skirts to the dentist on Tuesday. I just wish DD’s dental x-rays had been as cute as her skirt! Can you believe that this beautiful smile needs another crown??? Say it isn’t so.
DD getting ready to give Doodlebug a kiss. So sweet!
Sister Darling made a special visit to see PawPaw. Of course she enjoyed playing with her two little darling sisters, too. We just love it when she comes to visit.
WEDNESDAY: Just a cute picture of DD and DB after their bath. Little bundles of joy! Getting ready to take PawPaw on a wild trip to Target and Wal-Mart. LOL

Oh well, I know that I’m too old to be keeping up with a 2 yr. old but I’m doing pretty well…so far. Maybe I should just consider bi-focal contacts. Hmmmm.

For some strange reason Desheng Darling felt compelled to sing a song in Chinese for the entire group right in the middle of PandaGirl’s gift unwrapping time. Sorry PG…
The theme of PandaGirl’s b-day party was “Horses.” http://www.pandapalooza.blogspot.com/
PandaMom cleverly used bandanas as part of her decorating scheme. Doodlebug, however, had her own decorating ideas. LOL

After the pictures we went to Mardel’s to buy a copy of The Pumpkin Patch Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs
This is a wonderful book recommended by Adele at A Mei Mei for Mallory http://www.doublehappinessinrichton.blogspot.com/ I’m really glad I found it since we are planning to go to the pumpkin patch tomorrow with our play group. The book takes the focus off the jack-o-lanterns associated with Halloween; instead it puts the focus on glorifying God by letting him shine in our lives.
They are very active girls, but they do sleep occasionally!
Doodlebug is beginning to say a few words in English. Of course some words and phrases are essential to know. She learned this essential one tonight while watching television with Daddy Darling:

Our girls didn’t take it too hard though… They had their own celebration...
as Princess Presto (the Super Reader) and her sidekick. Yes, you’re right…too much television! I don’t have a clue what they were celebrating but they seemed to be having a great time.

I don’t know how they talked me into this. Actually, I think I said “No,” but Brother Darling didn’t know this when he helped them get set up.
Doodlebug used a brush for awhile, then decided that finger painting was more fun!
Not long after we had cleaned up the paint, the girls decided to show their artistic ability through another avenue….Fashion Design!
They proudly displayed their creations as we took a walk through the neighborhood. (Perhaps we should encourage them more in the fields of math and science rather than the arts.) Just another Marvelous Monday!!!
