Random photos

Oh My!!! Two posts in a week?!! What's goin' on?!!!

Thought I'd post those (promised) pics of Tiny's 3rd birthday - plus a few other random photos from the last couple of months!

Tiny with her best pal (Tiny is 4 months older than her friend!)
Tiny & I made a pinata for her party - you can just see Tiny, poking at it (in the foreground)
We gave Tiny a kitchen for her birthday - she's playing happily with her cousin!

I made Tiny a Dora cake! When I asked "Who's that?" Tiny answered, her own name! My friends always say, she's chinese dora!!!
Mouth full of lollies!

HOORAY!!!! After many, many, MANY years of dreaming of coming to America - WE FINALLY ARE!!!! WooHoo!!!

We decided its now or never - especially since our dollar is faring so well against the US$ at present! So we bit bullet, and have purchased our tickets to our 'Californian Dream' tour! Well, I say tour... but we haven't booked a proper tour... its just us, booking as we go!!

We plan on a couple of weeks in Anaheim, around a week in Las Vegas, then finishing off with a few days in Santa Monica or Hollywood (I haven't decided yet!)!! I'M SOOOO EXCITED!!!

So, if you've got nothing better to do in May next year, and you want to meet some FANTASTIC Aussies (that really want to meet you!!!) you better get your butts to California!!!

We toyed with the idea of hiring an RV and doing a "Robin Williams style" RV tour across America... but figured with three kids, in a tiny RV, that we're not only driving in, but living in... I'd probably end up killing someone... or four!! (and I could totally see us wearing poo, as RW did in his movie, when emptying the poo tank, too!!!) So... this trip its just the West Coast - hotels & shuttle buses!! No poo fountains. No confined spaces for hours at a time!

Did I tell you I was EXCITED?!!!!


Email me if you want specifics! goingdigi@gmail.com
(yes its a different address - was having issues with my four2five one!)
PS my folks will still be at home... just in case you thought this was a good opportunity to visit my house when I'm not there!!!

Little movie clip

I thought, its been forever since I posted a video of Tiny, so I took a little bit the other day! She was jumping on her bed (she hangs onto her bed head and jumps!) and thought it was cute... of course, when I got back with the camera... she finished jumping! Anyway, here is the clip - its nothing startling! Just Tiny being Tiny!

I couldn't work out how to post the actually little movie box, so here's the direct u.tube link!

Tiny Speaks!

(she is a little conjested, coz she's just got a cold!)

We're still breathing!!!

I know, I know... its been forever!! We've been really busy!! Unpacking, sitting by the heater, cooking soup in my new kitchen, trying to have a hot tub (which keeps leaking!), walking our acres, chipping ice off our windscreens in the morning, tending to the chooks (inc gathering eggs... huge eggs!)... plus of course, all the usual daily chores!!!

OK... enough of the chit chat - I know you only come here for the pictures!!

This is what happened one day... when baby girl was sposed to be in bed sleeping!! She sneaked into big sisters room... helped herself to the moisturiser, painted the mirror... thankfully only a small bit on the carpet
...and gave herself the beauty treament
Tiny LOVES playing in the dirt/mud
My little bro got married! Tiny in wedding gear

Playing with H-man

Patting the chicken (which is a HUGE milestone!!! Tiny was absolutely petrified of just about all animals, til we moved onto the farm!)

Big Sister, Miss M, is really into cooking at the moment - guess who licked the spoon(s)?!

Our big bonfire! I LOVE living on the farm, where we just burn our boxes... in the city, it took about 3 months to get rid of all the cardboard, in the recycling bins!

I love this photo. I was in the house, I looked out, and there was H-Man taking Tiny for a walk. Protectively holding her hand... so cute! He then gave her a piggyback, back to the house

I've been doing a bit of reminiscing of late. Hanging all my photos, putting out all my picture frames - it's official - Tiny has been at home, longer than she was in the Orphanage. This is Tiny exactly 12 months ago
She's still our baby. She's still tiny. She's still perfect in everyway... even when she's throwing an almighty 2yr old fit, or smearing moisturiser all over the mirror. I definitely have bad days, when I feel I can't cope - its all the life of being a Mama, but more than anything, I'm still in awe of this child that God blessed us with; that China officials matched with us; that a mother gave.
