Home from China~

Its Been a looong two weeks without the hubby and oldest son~


However they were on an important mission~


A mission to Joshua who was patiently waiting for his baba to come take him home.

The airport had the crazy misfortune to host the whole Christopher clan on thursday~

Jake was the one hiding in the trees with the wolf hat~



He only scared a few people coming off their flights~ that is before we kindly told him to move so as not to bother people...LOL




                                                      We barely held our excitement in...




But managed to keep it at bay by taking random pictures....




Until their flight was called and we saw them!!




Not a tear shed.....just smiles all around...


except for Caleb who has since told me he will never board a plane again....




And then the moment I have waited for, a whole year!!! A hug from my youngest son~

Now offically a Christopher and a US citizen!!!




And I thought for sure fast friends with Hope...






                                                        Finally a family complete!!!





And then we started right in with a mulch delivery....and put everyone to work.....





With a few breaks here and there....




for driving cars....




and tracing around mama and Joshua....







more random pictures.....




a tumble down the driveway, but still full of smiles





bubbles, a favorite activity..




and popsicles of course...




Everyone is doing well. The onyl advice I have for those adopting an older child~ learn the language!!!

Wehave had one meltdown since coming home and it would have really helped to have been able to tell him why he was in trouble. But, all we could do was hold him while he cried....so hard~

We are using Google Translate when I need to tell my new son something we can't motion to him. Simplified Chinese is Mandarin, Traditional is Cantonese.
