Happy Birthday, Jolie!

June 1st is Children's Day in China it is also Jolie's birthday. In China, orphanages assign birth dates to the children according to what age they appear to be when the children come into their care. They are usually assigned special holidays as birthdays if they appear to have been born near that time. Jolie also shares a birthdate with her friend Emmy who was adopted at the same time from the same province.
For Jolie's birthday we had Chinese food for lunch with Gam, Pop, and Honey! She enjoyed Won Ton Soup, Fried Rice and chicken lo mein...she loves noodles.
Next we headed to Build @ Be@r. My friend Melissa gave Jolie a BABear gift certificate at her shower, and I've been saving it for her birthday.
"Look, Momma!"
 How about this one?
 Choices, choices, choices....
 Honey came too!
Gam shows Jolie some more B@B choices.
I think she got a little overwhelmed!
 She's narrowed it down to the blue bear or the flower bunny....which one will win?
 Choosing a heart !
 Awww! Finished for some clothes and shoes!
Jolie got a birthday sticker!
 Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!
 Gam dresses the flower bunny. Jolie picked out a shirt with a flower on it. 
 Now to name her. We named her Flower!
 Flower Bunny!
On the way home...Flower bunny and some milk!  

Happy 2nd Birthday, Jolie! You are a sweet blessing...and we thank God for you!
Stay Tuned...Birthday Bash on Saturday when the sibs are finally home from church camp!
