October 9, 2009, "Amazing Race, Family Night"

Normally I don't post anything but devotional writings...however, I had to celebrate my beautiful daughter. I am very grateful to God for allowing my wonderful husband and I to get to be her parents. Sometimes we look at her in awe! I tease her all the time, yet there is great truth in jest when I say, "I get to be your mom? You're my daughter? Wow!" She responds so faithfully, "Mom, stop! You say that all the time!" She is hilarious, precious and her heart is so passionate for life and I love her innocence to want to remain a child...

She is so kind and thoughtful as her school had an 'Amazing Race' Theme PTO Family Night, along with a fabulous Book Fair. She allowed me to utilize her as my 'prop' for our country that we represented. I did allow her to take a quick break to get her passport stamped from all the different countries. The 'theme' allowed visitors to 'travel' to the 7 Continents in an hour ~ so cute and everyone did a fabulous job.

We represented South Korea. Of course, my mom is Korean and my dad is American (Half Lebanese and Half German). I love the Korean culture and just the country itself, I desire to visit there one day soon.


Grandpa and Grandma came for a surprise visit; Tristin and I were very blessed that they came.
Below is a picture of Tristin and a photo of Grandma when she was 18 years old in her hanbok.
