Red Couch Photos

Here's a photo of the kids playing in the Mattel playroom at the White Swan.

We attempted red couch photos today. Maimie was not so happy, so we picked out some of her better poses to share.

Here's one of the whole family taken by an innocent American bystander from Utah.

All 4 Monday kids, which we have been told by many many Chinese people is "too many children, very big family".

The beautiful White Swan indoor waterfall (view from our breakfast table).

It is now Wednesday afternoon. We leave for the US Consulate for our appointment soon. Happy Valentine's Day!

Dear Mondays,
So fun to see your pictures and updates. I have never gotten the videos to work. :(
God is so good. Your children have not missed much school this week. We were out on Tuesday and Wednesday for snowdays. We only have a 1/2 day on Friday! Therefore, your children only missed 2 1/2 days this week! What a praise!
My girls are already in love with her! They admire her pictures and think she is so cute.
We can't wait to share in the joy of your homecoming! May God continue to be with your family and keep you safe. I hope your flight goes well. Love to you all, JODY DILL

Maimie is just way too cute in her red couch photos with her bow! I loved the macaroni photos! It is so obvious that Maimie adores her mommy! She is so precious! And so blessed to have such a wonderful sister and brothers! God's blessings to you as you travel home. Aunt Sheila
