Home in 2 days!

Yesterday we shopped all day and then went to an Italian Restaurant for dinner. It was great.
The girls did not take a nap yesterday, so they were very tired and did not eat much. We went with several other families. Today we again shopped and played outside. Both girls have been playing with their Barbies, so we did some Barbie shopping. You should see Bob and the girls picking out dresses. It was too cute.

Tonight we are going to Lucy's for dinner. They have a lot of American type food. Great french fries and mashed potatoes!

The girls have been playing great together. Except right now - they are wrestling over the "mouse" to the computer. It is getting more and more difficult to find time to post on the computer. I really need to get up at 3 a.m. and do it then!

Jeannie is becoming more and more relaxed with us. She is a very happy girl. She sings and dances all the time. She is saying more and more words in English. Some things we have learned about her:

She loves chocolate! She chooses desserts over anything else to eat.

She eats great.

She loves to take naps and sleeps well at night also.

She is a girly girl. Loves hair bows and jewelry.

Her favorite toy is her Barbie

She tries very hard to copy Gia.

She loves her Mama, Baba and Gia.

We can't wait to start our journey home in 2 days,

Theresa and Bob
