A very special play date

Yesterday Viny (AKA Binny) spent a few hours with Mary while Claire and I did a little Christmas shopping. He had the best time! He and his sisters asked if their little buddy could come over for a play date, all by herself. Mary said yes.... and the fun begins.

We had to go to the store, we had to get flowers (that Binny arranged), Quinn made cupcakes, and they were up at the crack of dawn getting ready. Not Mama, they were up and getting ready for their very special guest, Ms Lexi.

The girl's were out front in their chairs waiting....they couldn't wait!
They were beyond excited when she arrived!
She is most certainly a princess, but today, she was extra special royalty at the C's.

They had a tea party, they colored, they had the most fun with our little friend that we met in Hunan almost 2 years ago. She is such a precious big girl now, and she has the most adoring friend in Viny. He was so patient and so sweet with her. There wasn't a moment when one of the kids was there with her and making sure she was happy and content, but Viny, he was making sure her time with us was special. Rochelle and I were in awe of how attentive he was. He even read her a book!

Viny is a great big brother, but it made my day to see what a great friend he could be to Lexi. We loved our time with our little friend. We hope she comes again soon.
Saying prayers for Ibbie and for Jenny....these little girls need to come home soon to very special big sisters.

Thank you Mary for trusting us with your special angel.
