Do I Exist?

I realized that I am typically behind the camera, therefore I do not appear in very many photos on my blog. I don't want my children to look back at this journal and never see me at all...
So... here we are...the girls!
Ava Rose (9)  Mama (43)   Sasha Jade (4)
My gorgeous daughters, I love you both so much!!!
You are so sweet and silly together 
 I am so proud of you both!!!

 This is Sasha Jade sitting on LiLi's lap, and Ran is LiLi's best friend from home,
both LiLi and Ran are in the au pair program, and were placed with host families
only 5 minutes away from each other. What are the chances of that happening ?!?

 The Spicy Sichuan Girls!
 Group Hug
All the girls living in the house!

Winter Vacation

On this cold snowy day 
GeGe, Jie Jie, and Mei Mei
 are home for Winter Vacation 
How do we stay busy?
We enjoy hot chocolate together
and building with Lego
Ava Rose built a model of her favorite store- Target!

and she built a recycling facility
This is Jakey's helicopter

Hours and hours of building and creating

Jake built a jail
Coconut keeps everyone company
Sasha Jade warms up with alphabet soup

Time out to watch Mulan

and to help Mama set the dinner table
East Meets West
Ready for a bubble bath

Coco likes to watch Mei Mei play in the water
A Big Wet Kiss!

Sasha Jade tries on GeGe's big cozy sweatshirt 

Just another wonderful day!
