Chen Family Temple,Porcelin and Pearl Market......and Whining......

We were off to the Chen Family Temple, whining, porcelin ( I know I'm spelling that wrong, I think), whining, and the pearl market, and whining. All the whining was done by Madeline, and pretty much in that order:)

Hank just went with Ann, a personal shopper with Redthread. He is getting pearls for Janie and for a few friends. You will be glad to know we have no whining as of now......whooo hooooo. Oops spoke too soon. Madeline is having a bit of trouble today as we are having a little too much together time. Mrs, Shaefer, she sure is missing the structure of her class:) Ok now she is playing and laughing again. A little jeckel and hyde going on in the China Marriot hahaha!!!

As you can see, we don't have much to post today. Janie is doing very well. She had to have her hair in pig tails like Madelines today and it is so cute, hardly any hair to go up:). Her diaper situation is getting better and more regular with help from a nurse in Cincy.

We bought a few finger art prints for the kids bedrooms.

Yep, nuff said.....

Daddy's buddy. Janie went to get in his lap or would lean against his leg and say Baba, so sweet. She has her Daddy wrapped!!

Looking at pearls


  1. This post cracked me up! My kids are speaking Whinese constantly!

    I felt like I was meeting celebrities yesterday at the exam because I've only seen your family in pictures. I recognized your son right away. Janie is adorable and looks like she loves having a big sister!


  2. Your girls (and boy) are adorable. Can you tell me where you got the beautiful dresses they are wearing? I haven't seen this style but I love it. We adopted our daughter six years ago and I love seeing other people meet the newest member of the family.

  3. Looks like things are going well and normal~ we had our share of whining too. :) We bought those paintings too and pearls. :) Blessings and love!

  4. Love the MJ twins!!! Cracking up about Madeline! I had one of those moments with #1 Middle today.. She has got that look in her portfolio too!
    Love the piggies on your baby girl... She looks adorable!!! And, so darn sweet that she is smitten with her Daddy! Smart girl!!! Lastly, YAY for Cincy Nurse!!!

    It's hard to believe you are getting close to being home soon!!!!!


  5. As if none of you ever whined!!! I'll be so glad when you get back home!!

    Love you all,

  6. The dresses are Matilda Jane!
    Love following your experience in China but can't wait for you to be home. I miss my friend!
    I hope these next few days go smoothly!

  7. Love those pig tails!! I can finally do that with Molly and they are TINY but cute!! Love the girl's dresses too!
