Much cuteness! Day 2

and more officialness. :)

We have had such an amazing time, me and my 3 girls!!

Today, we had to go back for official paperwork and photos, and the 3 girls can color, play on the Ipad, color some more, and of course, keep track of Lili!!

She tends to slip away once in a while-just checking the place out, not going anywhere!!
She is a livewire, and a very happy one at that:)

We had to hand over the cash I was carrying around today-what a relief to be rid of all that!

After the official stuff was done, we went to Walmart for a few supplies, like LOTS of noodles, and some shoes for Lili. Since she only came with the clothes on her, that included one pair of heavy red boots, and we found her some really cute pink tennies, and she was delighted.

We also bought some gifts for the orphanage we will be visiting on Wednesday.

When we got back to the room, we cooked some noodles, the girls ate a quick/late lunch and they all crashed for 1 1/2 hours-and was it hard to get them up!!!

We ordered room service, and the food came, and Kendell was mightily disappointed with her chicken nuggets-guess we will have to wait for Guangzhou for anything that resembles chicken nuggets for her. She also had a bout of tummy trouble, and thankfully, is much better now and no one else has it:)

We also explored the HOTEL a bit, talk about gorgeous, and huge, and no place for little girls to run around and be silly.

We will share more tomorrow-even if it's not thrilling, it is what it is, a new family getting used to each other-minus the boys, that is!!!

Chris and the girls!!

all the gifts-and I actually saw them enjoy the chocolate-at one point, all the "officials" walked into our room happily munching on their mini cow pies!!!

Rose and Dir W and I have a final pic together

Chris we are enjoying keeping up with you and Kendall as you met the newest members of your family. Looks like you are having some very special bonding getting to know each other times together. We are very happy for you and look forward to seeing you again and meeting the girls when you get home.

LOVED all the pictures and so glad things are going well, Chris! My favorites were all of you together and that cute picture of little Lili by herself. Blessings, dear friend!

Chris, I love that you're all wearing matching clothes! What a wonderful way to make the girls feel a part of your family. It looks like everything is going so well and I couldn't be happier for you all!

~Love reading this update~ And love seeing a modest and headcovering family in China! I know I won't be alone then! Have a great time and I pray that the adjustments continue to go well.

Love the photo of you all, so cute to have the matching dresses. For the girls it really does help to give that sense of belonging together.

Beautiful hotel, but I know what you mean about not being so great for the kids. I wonder if there are any parks near by you could walk or take a taxi too? Front desk might be able to give some recommendations.
