Gotcha Day!

Every year we celebrate the day we were united together as a family through adoption! We call it "Gotcha Day" cause that is the day we welcomed Bean into the family. But to be totally honest - we were smitten from the moment we first met Bean. Her personality is big and she has a "spark" that can just draw people in. I can't explain what a blessing she is to us. Being her Mommy - makes me a better person. God knows the plans he has for us....and thank you God for bringing her into our lives.

We try to do things that are fun and exciting for Bean. Since she is the all American girl now - we figured why not go to American Girl! The excitement of this day has been building and Bean was about ready to bust before we could even get to the store. She immediately declared she was going to get Kit Kittredge - cause we saw the movie. We looked at every doll in stock and all she could say was "Can we go buy Kit now?" She is a girl who knows what she wants. So Kit - welcome to the family - I have a feeling you will be going everywhere with us.

We ate at the Bistro, with Kit of course, and just really enjoyed our day together! It was a busy day as we started off with donuts at Shipley's and a soccer game. Then we went to American Girl, breaked to watch the 2nd half of the Texas game (hook-em horns), and then were off to a party at our friends house. It was action packed and a lot of fun!

Happy girl and her Kit
