That's what this weekend was!!

It was so COOL to see all these Chinese children together!!
There was never a squabble, fight, disagreement, jealousy, bad attitude (except for my kids) or tears.  Unless you count the time that Kate and Hudson ran smack into each other while playing baseball!

They ALL were the best of friends.

There was only one missing for most of the weekend and that would have been the blond haired, blue eyed boy, Trey!  Was he feeling like the minority?  No, he loves Kate, Ellie and was smitten with Rachel!  He had a wrestling tournament on Saturday and was gone most of the day on Sunday.  That is why you won't see him in any photos.  He'll catch up with them at Kamp in June!

It was wonderful to finally meet Rachel and get to hold her and tell her how happy I am that she is home with her family.  She is so precious!  And smart!!
And her English?!  Holy cow!!!  She sounds like she's been home for years!!!!
She is absolutely amazing.

Hudson and Kate seemed to hit it off.  They were together most of the time.  Lori and I are definitely
pre-arranging these two!  (Sorry, Sonia!!)   ;  )

Wesley and our nephew, Caleb, came home to meet the McCary's.  Caleb hadn't met Hudson and Sophie yet either- so it worked out perfect.  It was so good to have those two back home for the weekend.  It has been awhile since they've come back together.  They are so fun to be around and the kids couldn't get enough of them.

When I told the kids it would be another 5 months before we saw the McCary's again:
Hudson said, "Gosh!!"  (as in really disappointed!)
Isabella smiled and said, "5 days?!" (as in really excited!)
Sophie just smiled sweetly.

So, the countdown to June begins!

Here are a few pictures of our weekend.


  1. I love the bathtime pictures best! lol

  2. How fun!!! I am SO jealous!!! They are so cute together!!

  3. It looks like you all had a blast. Know that you all are not the only ones counting down to kamp. Can't wait to see you all.

  4. We had a BLAST Stacy! I had no idea that chaos could be so much fun! What a sense of humor God has... busting the seams of our families and then bringing us all together as special friends! I'm so glad He did! Grateful for YOU! Lori
