Villa Teresa Halloween Carnival

We all went to the Halloween Carnival at Villa Teresa Catholic School last Saturday. Lots of kids, lots of games, lots of fun.

Chinese Hannah Montana (how many blonde Chinese girls have you seen lately?) and Sister Veroncia's identical cousin, Veronica the Clown. She is such a good sport.

Hannah Montana got a face tattoo. Check out the nacho cheese smeared all over Hannah's mouth.

Hello Kitty. Brycie's mother is also a good sport. Thanks, MeMe!

Autumn Photo Shoot - Part 2

Okay, so here we go again with more images of our little Clare. The trees are really starting to turn so we took Clare to Hafer Park in Edmond, Oklahoma. We trust that those of you who follow our blog do so because you like watching Clare develop and grow. So, please scroll through these images and enjoy our little China girl.

Three generations - Brycie with her mother and daughter.

We just want you all to know that today we have "our ducks (or, in this case, our geese) in a row."

Mighty pretty, huh?

And, Brycie doing what she enjoys.

God is good!

Hope you enjoyed our Autumn colors.

What A Difference 11 Months Makes

The photo on the left is of Clare on November 21, 2008, when we arrived back in OKC from China. The photo on the right was taken on October 17, 2009. Wow!!! We have a healthy, vibrant, happy young lady. We love you, Clare.

Autumn Photo Shoot

We spent a glorious Autumn afternoon on Saturday taking pictures of Clare. We haven't been on a photo shoot since Spring, and we were hoping for some nice Fall colors. The trees haven't turned yet except in a few places around town. Hopefully we can shoot more images of Clare when all the trees have dressed out for Autumn. Here in OKC time is really of the essence. Our weather is so unpredictable that the trees can be beautiful one day, and by the next morning, all the trees are bare when the north wind blows. We hope that you enjoy our little photo album of Clare. These photos were taken at Will Rogers Park and at the Oklahoma River. We ran out of daylight before we got back to the Botanical Gardens.

Another Playdate At The Park For Clare And Claire

Brycie and Sue Bowlby got together with Clare and Claire for another playdate at the park. The day was bright and clear and the girls had a glorious time.

Clare must be learning to "moon."

Sue and Claire.

Miss Claire, enjoying the day.

Hey Clare, do it like this.

Okay, Claire, here I come.

Just peekin'

And now we tumble down.
