We are in North Carolina visiting our adoption friends!!! My friend Jody's birthday is in a few days and her crazy husband, Greg flew me and Sophie to NC to surprise the entire family!!! It has been so much fun keeping this surprise from all of them. We are having such a good time with them and we all thought that it would be summer before we saw each other again!!!!

Valentine Party

My sweet girl had her first school party today and she was not too sure about all the "strange" adults in her classroom.  For the first time in a long time she had her "China" look on her face!  She did not sing the first word or change her facial expression.   She sits down and doesn't eat hardly anything except for her hershey kiss.  Then the tears start forming in her eyes and I take her out of the room to distract her.  I take her back to the room when things settle down and I ask her if she wants to go with Mommy or stay at school.  She said "go with Mommy" I grab her stuff...."Stay at School" "Go with Mommy"  She wanted to do both and just couldn't get her emotions together.  I took her to the car crying and she was fast asleep within minutes.  Poor baby she really does love school but the "out of the ordinary" day messed her up!!!

 She is laying in the bed with me and is now singing her Valentine songs!
