*Gift #33 -- Thankful that my old diaper bag did not sell in garage sale

My Sister just sent me an email with this picture attached. Saying look what I found in your old diaper bag that you gave me. A 2 year mystery has been solved. And I was so sure it was Dan's fault and not mine.

*Gift #33 --- counting gifts from God/practicing gratitude per the amazing book "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp. It is a life changing book if you have not read it.

Gotcha Girl

Mia's 4 year Gotcha Day Anniversary was on Friday January 20th. We celebrated last Thursday by going out to eat at the Rice House. Mia was delightful. She LOVES Chinese food and wanted to try everything. After trying a new thing she cutely would exclaim "Yum, I really like this one". Precious. We can't believe she has been home for 4 years and will soon be 5. Wow. We love you, Baby!

Favorite Conversation of the Day

Mia: "Mom, why are these cookies in the trash?"
Elise: "Because they are all gone."
Mia: "Who ate them all?"
Elise: "Mom did".
Mia puts her hands on her hips and stomps her foot and says : "Mom, why don't you get back on your healthy eating plan and quit eating all of the treats!"
