Congratulations Katelyn and Scrapper

My niece was able to show her sheep Scrapper at the county fair this week, and she received second place in her age bracket! Meighan loves this sheep, by the way! Scrapper was all we heard about at the fair the other night!

A New Dress for Meighan

Meighan is getting a new dress! I have been following the blog Red Thread Stitches and was overjoyed to see a dress to fit Meighan today. Along the bottom of the dress will be a monogrammed "M" and we are also getting a matching clip on hair bow! I can't wait~ I can't wait to see it on her.

Friday Worship

This is one of our favs at McLane Church! I found it on You Tube and knew I needed to share it. I needed to remind myself that it is all about Him and all for Him. Thank you Jesus... (Before hitting start, turn off the playlist at the bottom of my blog.)

Pittsburgh Zoo

We had a great day at the Pittsburgh Zoo. The weather in the morning was cool, so the animals were active, with the exception of the lions who were disappointing! We walked 5 miles over the course of the day...all I can say is "ouch!" Meighan loved the day~ her favorite site of all were the sea lions who put on a great show. I swear they must have worked for Sea World at one time they were so good! She even got to touch a boa constrictor. Such a brave girl. As soon as she was done though, she said, "ewwwwwww"! this zoo really is a must see if you are able. The aquarium is great, the new polar bear encounter will blow you away, and there are 2 baby elephants and a baby tiger cub!

Me and My Sweet Baby Girl

I really do feel like one of the most blessed mom's in the world! Christopher is entering his senior year and making headway into a possible military carrer. Kara is a sophomore this year and turning into quite the self-confident young woman. I wished there childhoods away at times because I was so tired from having 2 preschoolers. I will NOT make the same mistake this time...I want to savor ever wonderful morsel of this time with all of my children, but especially these days with Meighan!

Gettin' SO Big

Kara and I put one of Meighan's silk dresses on her and went outside to see if we could get some pictures her with a smile on her face. We were lucky and got our wish!

Really Missing China Today

Seeing all of the sights and sounds of Beijing really has me missing China. How can someplace that gave me so much, not forever, be in my heart... Of course we'll be cheering for the USA to win the gold, but we'll be cheering for the Chinese too. After all- we are an American-Chinese family now!

Have you seen the medals? They are beautiful with the jade surrounding the other metals! Enjoy the videos. Tune in tonight at 7:30 pm on NBC for the opening ceremonies!
