SENTIMENTAL FOOL

Yes, that would be me..... I will be the momma that will have boxes of special memories and projects made by Tate. I will be the dreaded momma you will want to run from screaming when you see me approach, You know the kind of momma that has a ton of pictures she MUST show of her amazing unique one of a kind child.

In honor of my referral for Tate, I have purchased and framed this picture. This is the picture on the wall of her kingdom. It is a numbered and signed Mary Engelbreit print. Something I wanted to provide as a memory for both Tate and me.

On the back I have added her referral picture and the reason for the print.

I did the same thing when I became DTC/LID for my girl back in March 7 2006. That time it was a print done by a adoptive momma of her China love.

Also an inscription on the back commemorating this special moment.

I'm pretty sentimental too -- so I love your inscriptions on the back of the prints. So glad you're set to go. I got caught up in the SARS delays for Zo Peep and am glad the Swine Flu issues haven't affected you. Best wishes for a safe trip -- you're so close to holding Tate. Can't wait to see more photos of your Poyang princess.

Awesome prints, and what a great idea to write those notes on the back!!! Love it.

Two more sleeps, I can barely stand the excitement!!!

I love those prints! what a beautiful way to conmemorate these special days.

How's the packing going????

Marmee said...

I love the idea and I love M.E.!! She has fabulous material too and I hope to make quilts for my girls some day (When I have enough $$ to shell out the nearly $500 it will take to buy material for 4 quilts! ;o) Anyway, have a fabulous time in China! We have grown to love it there so much!! It will become a second home to you! Tell Li Ping, Mary or Bob "Hello" from the Isom family!!

BTW, we're doing something similar by framing our "play bills" from the shows we take our girls too! I stole the idea from a friend! This week we get to add The Lion King! ;o)
