Happy Gotch'a Day Jocelyn!!!

Big day for our family...Today was Jocelyn's Gotch'a Day!! 7 years ago today Ryan, I and Gabriella went to the MSP airport and met Jocelyn for the first time!! It seems like yesterday...and today she is a very sweet little girl who has the biggest heart.

I was up early this morning making a Gotch'a day breakfast of rolls and quiche! Yummmmy!
 Then, it was the exciting part of opening a couple special gifts to commemorate the event!!!
 I always love the look of anticipation when the kids open gifts..........everyone's eyes are bright and excitement is in the air!
 .....And her face is priceless.....she is in shock and that means momma picked the right gift well!! Mission accomplished!
 Jocelyn got the new American Girl named, Caroline Abbott. She loved the book about her new historical American Doll and the accessories.
 Here's a picture of the sista's together.........................'s Magnus not joining in on the picture!!! Typical!
 He did this pose all on his own!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He seriously is a really funny little boy!!! Where does he get that....I don't know???
 Daddy smooch'in on Magnus and he giggles and giggles............
 My fancy face and her new doll.
 Gabriella is proud big sister. Gabriella and Ahnya never once complain that they didn't get something or fight about playing with Jocelyn's gift, etc. The kids just know that a Gotch'a Day is a special celebration for that child and the kids support each other and share in the joy. I love that. No one fought or had an argument at all today. I love that, too! We all had a great time playing outside, playing dolls inside, hot tubing and being a family.

 Jocelyn and Caroline having snack together!
 I had to post the other kids because they're part of the celebration, too! Ahnya all smiles all the time!
 Magnus already has things figured out. He sang "Happy Gotch'a Day to you" song to Jocelyn many times today. He gave tons of hugs to Jocelyn, too!
 And Gabriella..............another sweetheart!
We ended the evening with typical asian dishes from the Hunan Lion restaurant because I just couldn't keep up to all the cooking. Delicious and perfect for the occasion. Happy Gotch'a Day Jocelyn Ka In. You are even sweeter than when I held you in my arm 7 years ago. I love you forever!
