It has been a wonderful day! The best we have had so far. We went to a city built 600 years ago, that Xiaoyun had said she wanted to go to. The drive took about an hour and the countryside was beautiful. This is a mountainous province, with only about 3% of flatland. We passed many rice paddy's, and even some water buffalo! the city was fascinating and also packed with people, since this is a holiday for many. There are a lot small vendors set up selling everything from toys to tofu made with pigs blood (actually I had just put a bit of something Enya has asked for in my mouth when the guide told us that, and I thought she was talking about what I had just stuffed in my mouth - let's just say it was back out of my mouth immediately. We all got tickled about that and had a good laugh together.) Enya Li was fascinated BY EVERYTHING!!! She was so excited about the little things I bought her. Xiaoyun loved the jewelry and we bought matching bracelets for all four of my girls and for me and Mom. Speaking of Mom - she did go today and we think the anti-inflammatory is helping. Thanks for the prayers and keep them coming!
We painted toenails today, and it made Xiaoyun so happy! Enya Li wanted in on the action and actually sat still long enough for her fingernails to dry. They were both so impressed with their nail!
I lay down on the bed with Enya Li to get her to sleep, and while we are laying there, she raised up and kissed me. Then, a little while later, Xiaoyun comes over to me,throws her arms around me and gives me a kiss on both cheeks. What a miracle and answer to prayer to have such loving girls!
All are asleep now, and I better get there myself - my little tornado will be awake early ;-)
