Happy Birthday Libbie!!

Hoot made the CAKE!!! It was perfect.


What a day it was (so good it was two days ago!!). We've been really busy. We received a precious 21 second video of Libbie on her birthday. (what a gift) it was so perfect. I don't think I've stopped smiling! I made my way to the Asian market for egg roll wrappers that afternoon. We made egg rolls and fried rice for dinner and then we celebrated with a heart shaped birthday cake Hoot baked (almost all by himself). We sang happy birthday and Hoot blew out the three candles for her. I was so hoping we would get the good news on her birth day that we were I800 approved... it didn't come.. So today I called USCIS (immigration) and spoke to our officer. He said that he received 17 files yesterday. As he looked through the files he didn't find ours. After about 5 minutes of searching, he said, "well no wonder I can't find it... it was approved on the 14th and mailed out!!!! So it did get approved on her birth day... Another wonderful gift. God is so good!!!

I am a happy momma~

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
