Sophie told Santa that all she wanted was a "Swimming Puppy" for Christmas... (I guess she forgot about the bow & arrow and stilts...lol).

What a great pic of all three children! :) You know, I started following your blog back in 2006...it is one of the handful that inspired me to apply to adopt from China. Still waiting on a referral here, but it has been a blessing to watch your family grow and expand over the past four years. It's keeps me hanging on hope! Happy Holidays to you all.

Gosh! I have not been by to check your site in a while! The kids are getting so big and are still as beautiful as ever! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I would love to be a fly on the wall at your house come Christmas morning! There is nothing better than the surprised and delightful sounds kids make when they see what all Santa left!
