Easter 2014

Today was a good day, other than the fact that I'm on day 4 or 5 of feeling utterly miserable with the cold from heck.  We had a wonderful Easter service at church, which included beautiful messages shared by one of my favorite families, and the song Gethsemane, sung by Sofie and Cora.  They did such a good job!  I meant to make an audio recording of it, but totally forgot until they came to sit down in our pew, dang it!  Anyway, it was very sweet, and at the end of the meeting when our bishop got up to speak briefly, he got choked up as he explained that those of us in the congregation couldn't see what he could see, and that was that Sofie and Cora linked fingers as they sang.  It made me get teary-eyed.  I love that my kids love each other.  They definitely have their moments when they bicker and argue, but it makes me happy to know that in times when they're nervous or need support, they feel safe in turning to each other.

Here are a few pictures from today.  I was busy cooking, so I handed the camera over to Teffy and Jonah which meant that they are conspicuously absent from the photos.  But bonus!  I'm not!  ;)  I had to weed through a few shots of rear ends and close ups of random objects, but there are a few good ones, including a rare one of Curtis avec canard-visage.  


  1. Hi Tana, I just wanted to introduce myself. We adopted 2 girls from China in December, 2012. One of our girls has DS and she turned 6 in February. I found Lydia several months ago while surfing RR and thought she looked so much like our daughter and their bdays are so close:) we looked into finding more info on her but saw that another family (not yours) had her file in hold. We just wondered what province she was in... Thinking maybe they might possibly be twins. I was beyond excited when I looked for her again tonight and saw that she has a family! Our blog is, although I'm taking a break from updating for a while. I pray all goes well for you! She's precious!

  2. Hi Rebecca - you are right! They definitely look alike! Of course, I'm basing my assessment off of a handful of photos while you have a living, breathing person (ha ha!) but there is definitely a resemblance. We should stay in touch and compare photos again once we get YunLi home. :)

    YunLi is in Guangxi. Where is your daughter from? She is adorable!
