So Glad We "Gotcha," Doodlebug

Doodlebug... August 20, 2008
Today we celebrated the one-year anniversary of DB’s Gotcha Day. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since we traveled to China for her. The years we spent waiting to travel sure didn’t go this fast.
When we first got DB, she wouldn’t let DD touch her. Now, they are practically inseparable. It’s difficult to take a picture of just one of them alone.
We spent most of the day at the Mall with friends where DB enjoyed spending time in the play area and riding the carousel.
After purchasing a special kitty from the Disney Store, we stopped by Dixie’s to buy a charm (also a kitty) for DB’s Gotcha Day bracelet.
We ended the day by making a special Gotcha Day treat…Cookies ‘n Crème Brownies…Yum! Yum!
Today is one of those times when “Thank you, Lord” just doesn’t seem adequate to express my gratefulness for the wonderful children God has blessed us with. I’m glad He knows my heart and understands the joy I feel.
Doodlebug, I'm so glad we “Gotcha!”
