Jami said...

I love your blog and have been reading it since you went to China to bring Ryan home. My daughter is also from Shangrao(home since July 07). You have a wonderful family and you make me laugh out loud! Thanks for the give-aways and for sharing your life with us.

I am definitely a follower as I am your Mother. But don't let that influence you in the drawings which I know it won't.

ElleBee said...

Happy Sunday! I already had you in my Bloglines Reader, but I added myself to your Followers list! :)

Kat said...

Oh isn't that such a great idea. Now if we could just keep the snowflakes inside to decorate candles and not outside on the ground - I'd be a happy camper :D I'm not a big fan of snow incase you couldn't tell. It's pretty as it falls but not when I have to drive in it.

Oh and I'm a follower/cult member - thanks for the opportunity.

Heather said...

Merry Christmas! My house smells like toddler diarrhea (and in my defense, he does have a medical problem!) Can anyone beat that reason for needing a yummy smelling candle? Have a great week everyone...

Oh, I am a follower of your blog even though my picture doesn't show up on your side bar. Go figure?

Count me in, and I added you to my stalking route, but for some reason it wouldn't let me do it "publicly" so I being sneaky about it and stalking you in private. Except I talk (comment) so it isn't so private is it?

Anyways. Always glad to have another great blog to read!

Kristin said...

Just under the wire. Whew, what a day!

Okay, here is your comment, and you know I am a follower. :-)

Oh, darn it! I forgot to come visit...worked all day with Meggie on her China adoption art project...and don't qualify for today's prize. Didn't want you to think I forgot about ya.

I'll be back tomorrow to try for the next prize!
