Our Girly Girl Weekend!

Our first annual China girls weekend was a success!!  Girls bonded...both littles and mama's!   It's so much fun to actually meet and hang out with people that you have only met on blogs.  Even though I've only met Jen D. once and have never met Amber in person, I just knew we would hit it off and talk non-stop ALL weekend!  They even had this mama up til 1AM the first 2 nights... and that just doesn't happen anymore!  They experienced a one time thing with me...lol!
Amber and Mia came in Friday morning and then we met Courtney and her daughter, Harper, at the mall for some build a bear fun!  Another friend of mine and Jen Newberry's, who lives in our neighborhood, just started the adoption process, and she and her two girls met us there too.  So much fun!
Primping and getting ready for our big mall excursion..

The Gang!  From left to right..Harper, Wesleigh, Mia, Gracie, Ella(in lap), Macky, Kirby, Molly

Kissing kitty's heart before she puts it in. 

And the happy girls with their new stuffed animals :)

Next up...carousel!!   These things get me so sick so I made a deal with Newberry that I'd buy her ticket if she rode with Molly.  I definitely got the better end of the deal :)

One of many photo shoots..

One of many tea parties...

And one of many dress up parties! :)

We went out to eat Friday night and afterward the girls had fun with the ducks.  
Feeding them..

Riding them..

And of course playing Duck Duck Goose!! :)

And MORE photo shoots.  Molly copying Gracie's every more...so cute

Gage and the girls thought it was hysterical to try and run Mrs Jen down in the jeep!  I mean seriously....look at that laughter! She'll do anything for a good shot! :))

Me with the sweet girl who stole my heart years ago, and first changed my heart for the orphan.  

So blessed to have these women and girls in my life.  Love y'all and can't wait for our second annual!

Go to Jen D.'s blog here to see the professional pics of the weekend.  She also took some AMAZING pics of Molly that I will post when I get them.  Looks like I'll be flying Jen D. Photography down for family pics from now on! ;)
