Mother's Day

I had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday - no breakfast in bed, but that is per my request as I cannot STAND crumbs in the bed!! Lots of beautiful hand-made gifts, including a pin cushion in a gorgeous decorated box (from Big Girl), two hair clips, one sporting a blue flower and the other a blue mouse (yes, that's right, BLUE MOUSE) and a very special calico bag, decorated with lots of Alice's cute little hand prints (thanks to K at daycare for that!!) So I proudly wore my new hair clips to church and received many glowing comments, and generally had a very pleasant day. It was made even more enjoyable by the visit of some very special people. Jen and I 'met' over the Internet a few years ago, as we are both involved in on-line discussion groups pertaining to Chinese adoption. She and her husband and darling daughter Ebony were in Tassie for a holiday so they came to visit!! It was just wonderful to finally meet someone who I felt as though I had already known for years!! Ebony and Alice had a ball playing together, and the grown ups enjoyed getting to know each other, a nice red wine and some yummy chocolate mud cake. Hope everyone else out there had a great Mum's day too!!

Hey there. You have some great photos in the last post. I just put Nadia's Tassie socks on for bed and she said, "Where did these come from?" And I said, "From Alice and her mommy." And she said, "I want to see pictures."

And when I opened up the blog she said, "Thank you for my socks and books." She had her face pressed up against the screen.

What a character!
