Home but not among the living

I got "yelled" at by my daughter this morning for not having updated my here "in a nutshell" is the reason why! I did a totally "stupid" move on our way home from Newark on Thurs......tripped, fell on my face & without going into the "gory details" have 4 stitches in my nose & look like I went 7 or 8 rounds with Mike Tyson!!!! Enough said!

This is Sophia in her highchair on Saturday eating congee (homemade by Gramma Jo). She seems to be adjusting slowly to being home but her nights are still a little are ours..... so we can understand. She is an amazing baby & seems to deal with what life throws at her very well. I still don't think we have seen the "real Li Li " yet but do get some glimpses.

China was totally awesome & I'm so glad I got experience the whole trip with them. Mark & Dani just took on the role of parents like they had been doing it forever! One of the best parts of the trip was experiencing "gotcha" day with all the families & then seeing each baby become familiar & comfortable with their new family. They were all so different & have their own unique personalities.

I kept a journal of the trip & after I go through & read it some more I will post some of the highlights.............right now the beginning of our journey seems like an eternity away!


  1. Yeah, you're blogging your trip!! Can't wait to read everything -- don't leave anything out (not just for me, but for Sophia LiLi, as well!)

    So sorry about your nose. Gonna post a picture?! ;^)

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
