Time flies....

Two years ago today, was referral day! I found out I was going to be a mother not only to one baby from China but two babies from China! Maxine had a twin sister. UNBELIEVABLE!!! How in the world I got so lucky is one of life's mysteries. So I had about 40 days until they were to be placed in my arms. And now today we celebrated with pony practice and Pinkberry. : ) 2 babies and 2 ponies! What could be better? Ahhhh..... Life is good.

One year ago today, we got our referral for "twins!" THE twins! OUR twins! I can't even imagine life before them anymore. {I usually say I can't remember life BC (Before China)} I do remember what Sabrina said at the begining of our referral call. She said, "I have some good news and some bad news. Which do you want first?" Well since it was the day after most everyone received their referrals, I figured she was calling to say we didn't get our referral and that it would be here next month. So, I opted for the bad news first. She told me that I wouldn't be getting much sleep. Hmmmm... uh,why??? Then she went on to tell me that I was the mother of twins!!! I screamed in her ear and immediately apologized for doing so. I probably permanently damaged her ear drum. Have ya ever heard a Southern girl scream??? Come to find out this was our agency's first referral for twins. Wow...and the odds it was us??? Who really knows...but I am the luckiest mommie in the world! Our twins are the best! What strong, beautiful, funny girls they are. Oh and, way too smart for their mommie.

Color-it-yourself Easter Bunnies with Easter Eggs

Pink Camoflauge Bucket Hats with Easter Baskets. (Nothin' fancy here. We shopped at Wal Mart) PS. Plastic eggs stuffed with cheerios. LOL.

Notice how Mommie's color-it-yourself bunny is tossed to the side. Nice, huh??? Otherwise the Baskets and Goodies the EB brought were well received with screams and screeches.

CANDY!!!! (Only 1 piece though and they actually shared 1 piece.)

Edible Easter Grass! I knew they would try to eat the paper or plastic kind so.... just opted for the edible kind. And, it comes in different flavors and colors. It is like eating a cross between taffy and raffia.

BiBi, her bonnet and bag of tricks....

BiBi in her straw Easter bonnet with matching bag(given to her by Norma, Lil Norma, and Miguel) riding the Easter duck that Marme' sent.

Giddy Up Duck

I love my Easter hat!

Ride 'em Cowgirl!

I really love my Easter hat!

BiBi, where are your ears???

BiBi, where is your nose???

BiBi, can you pat your head???

BiBi, is there something stinky???


Maxine, where is your nose???

Maxine, where are your ears???

Maxine, can you pat your head???

Look. It opens!

And, it's green! I like green!

Can you put something in this???

Cheerios!?? I don't want no stinkin' cheerios!

Give. Me. Some. Chocolate.

Ridin' Rodi.

These better not have cheerios in them.
