Sunday Snapshot

Sunday Snapshot




A little shopping…a lotta smiling!!  We went shopping yesterday to get a few things for warmer weather and for Easter.  It was so much fun. Hope loves shopping until she gets tired then it is time to go home!!  Carmen sang in our Church Easter Cantata tonight (by the way it was wonderful) and after we got home Miss Hopie agreed to a few poses for the camera. 026028018

She really looks cute in yellow.  I was so surprised yesterday when I would show her clothes to see if they passed the Hopie test.  Number 1 requirement to being something she would consider is the fact that it is NOT a skirt.  Not real sure where that came from but she hates to wear them.  The surprise was that she wanted not only this very very cute tutu type dress she also asked for another one a little bit similar to wear for hunting eggs with the family on Easter Sunday.   I get so happy when she tries on something at the store that she loves…it reminds me of the day we got her with only the clothes she had on her back and the fact that we know that in the orphanage nothing is really yours.  It is yours for the day if you wear it.  She will laugh and giggle and do a little dance if she really loves something and it is always “Mommy can we get it ?   Can we?  Please?”  ( That is why we do not try on anything unless we do plan to purchase something)   She is not good at window shopping.

so loved

With a big heart and a love for the abandoned children in China this couple is going above and beyond!!  I was so happy to donate to their effort to bring home two more sweet little girls  from China.  Check out their website and ask God if you should help them out too.
