Black and White Wednesday and "The Pink Connection"

PhSho-Angle&Georgia May2011 250 blog-3

We've called our little "gang" the 'Pink Connection' since before our families travelled to China for our first daughters.

Dan and I were at the court house, awaiting the final approval for our first adoption (Dahlia). I heard someone say my name and whipped around to see someone who I knew instantly that I would know very well.

Instant C.L.I.C.K. !!

We travelled to China together and became Mothers the very same moment.

Our first daughters - Dahlia and Angel had been waiting for us in the same orphanage......together.

And about four years later we returned to China for our second daughers.....together.

The bond that Dahlia and Angel have is stronger than sisters (they call themsleves soul sisters). They absolutely adore each other.

And a beautiful thing is happening again. Milana and Georgia are becoming such good friends. Of course they share a few other things in common.

Like....they're both nutballs.

"Miss Happiest-When-Airborne"

Good Friday girls 257

So....this is not exactly "Today", but today we did go to Dahlia's ballet concert rehearsal and that reminded me that I hadn't posted these pictures from our little shoot at our local mall.

So, as I was shooting away, Dahlia decides to take off her shoes and fly through the air. She wasn't in the mood for posing so I barely got anything worth showing but she (we) sure had fun.

I kept screaming suggesting that she slow down so I could get something, but she was too far gone for any of my silly requests.

Then she decided that 'little sis' needed some instruction in flying.

We may still need a little work.

But.....little sis DID discovery a clue as to why her big sis was able to clear such heights.

Black and White Wednesday - "More Flowers"

flowers tulips 066 blog

This week I'm all about flowers. Maybe because the forecast is rain for about 7 days and I keep looking at my garden with reassuring glances. "Soon my lovely things.....I'll clean you up and keep you company soon."

These are two tulips we rescued before the rains came. Yesterday I posted them in color and I guess I'm in a soft mood because I converted them softly as well. My normal style of - 'bam, in you face contrast' just wasn't calling to me this week.

Besides, I was having too much fun with textures which lends itself to a softer processing, don't you think?

We have a long week-end coming up so I'm hoping the rains will stop and I can talk everyone into a family version of "let's get this party garden started".

Black and White Wednesday - Pretty Girlie Bling!

Update: I had a post published here(my final one before leaving for China for Milana). This is a site that caters to Adoptive families in Canada.

Look what I won!

I guess my name was randomly picked on Facebook page and a few weeks later I got a sweet little package in the mail. The girls weren't home at the time but I knew I'd hear squeals of delight when they spied all the pretty colors.

I wanted to get picture of them right away but we had about 4 days of rain so I waited till this week-end to grab a few.
