It's a small world...

Guess where we've been these last few days???
























We've been in Disney World.  I it kept on the down-low because I didn't want our outdoor Halloween creatures to mysteriously vanish in our absence.  We're back home and it was a glorious mini-trip. 






















































Not only did we get to experience all the magic of Disney World at Halloween, we were able to meet up with four other adoptive families from Josie's orphanage (JiAn/Jizhou District SWI in Jiangxi, China).

Although we didn't travel to China together, we've all been in contact throughout the last few years and feel like we know each other forever.


















I have to give Nicole a big thank you for arranging such a wonderful reunion.  Every detail (right down to the t-shirts) was super.  Our family looks forward to doing this again in the future. 

We also got an opportunity to meet up with the Brown Family (love ya Shanna) and finally connect in person. 


















Josie's convinced that Chloe is her new best friend.


















And Emma can't wait to have Halley come visit us sometime in MI.























Now that we're back from Magic Kingdom, the pressure is on BIG TIME to get the final touches done for our Halloween party.   Only 5 days until the big event!!

I love the t-shirt idea for the girls reunion. I might have to steal that idea for when we have our girls reunion. Always a great time for everyone at Disney....don't we all agree. The girls are excited for the party this Friday!
