Party # 2


















































Wouldn't you know it. I am way behind again on posting. We had a 2nd party for LilyRose on September 9th for all her little friends and cousins. It turned out really nice. I had the big bouncy pit again for the older kids, but the little ones had a blast in it. I had Elmo stop by, but most of the kids were afraid. We had 3 little girls from the FCC-LI group here and how cute they all were. Nola Ann, Emily & Maya. Just love these little ones. LilyRose was so tired that right after we sang Happy Birthday, she fell fast asleep in the chair. It was really cute. I was super happy that my cousins Janeen & Kristi were able to come. They are on my fathers side of the family and I am so glad that we are able to maintain our connection since my father died 4 years ago. Our kids get along really well and they have a blast together. My other cousins were here also. Gina is a permanent fixture here. lol My cousin Gerard and his wife Elizabeth with their daughter Courtney who is absolutely gorgeous by the way were here, my cousin Michael and his wife Danielle along with their son Tyler (hey Ty, give me a pound) Cousins Siri, Kristi & Mark. Thanks for coming. But a big shout out goes to my very dear friend Liz. I have known Liz for almost 30 years. She was here with her daughter Valerie. Valerie is 2 months younger then LilyRose and I hope they will be able to say they know each other for 30+ years someday. I just love Liz. LilyRose had an awesome time and she has lots of family and friends that love her to pieces. Enjoy the pic.

Great pictures! Of course, my favorite is the one of Lily sleeping in the middle of her party. That was sooo funny!

Two Parties, WOW. Happy Birthday again "short draws." Sorry I missed this one also, but I will be at next years parties and I will even wear a hat. Miss you coming into my room (Joe's room) and touching all my stuff. Love You and Miss You. Hope you had a nice nap.

Love,
Uncle Ralph

Hi MOM. See you all soon.

Lisa, Elmo? He prob.scared the hell out of all the kids. It would have been less tramatic if you had a tank pull up in front of the house with a company of Marines in full battle rattle.

Hey Ralph,

if you were home instead of in Iraq, I would have let you hire the entertainment for your niece's birthday party. I guess mom wasn't scare, she sat on Elmo's lap (poor Elmo) and gave him a kiss. I have to try to scan that photo and post it here.

Lisa - your sister that misses you a lot.

Lily is so cute!

Thanks for stopping by our blog and for your prayers! We're still waiting for news on Si Ya (the little girl we are adopting). We do know that she has seen the photo album of our family, but that was the last news we got and we don't know what her reaction was. I'm hoping she is excited!

Miss LilyRose is becomming quite the party girl!! She's a doll!!

Ann said...

Happy Birthday Miss Lily, it looks like you had a wonderful time with Elmo!!

THanks for stopping by, Lily is gorgeous. I think it's great that you are looking into Taiwan. The program is growing and growing(hence the longer waits) From my understanding that are more boys then girls so maybe your wait won't be soo long. If you have any questions feel free to email me, taiwan2adopt@yahoo.com
