Natalie was in her first school program this week.  They sang Bow-Wow Christmas, so they were all dressed as little puppy dogs.

A Few of My Favorite Things

Every day when I get home from school I say, "Hello Kitty Dress please Mama!", "Bow shoes please", "Hello Kitty socks please".

And everywhere I go I must have one of my three favorite soft cloth dollies with me.


This is me with my favorite Teddy Newf

Books are another of my favorite things.  I like to drag mine all out and have them surrounding me for easy access.  As always I have my Hello Kitty dress on and one of my favorite dollies by my side.  This particular dolly was the exact one my Daddy gave me when I first met him and Mommy in China.  Thanks Papa for picking out this great dolly.

Speaking of China, I am a big fan of the Nickelodeon show "Ni Hao KaiLan!"  I now use two Mandarin phrases on a regular basis:  Ni Hao (hello) and Xie Xie (thank you).

One of my favorite episodes is when KaiLan and her friends go on an airplane to China.  I have lots of pictures of myself when I was a baby in China and I've decided I'm ready to go back for a visit.  Mama says she will take me when I get older, and since I am a little older everyday I make sure to mention at least 10 times a day so she doesn't forget... "Mama, I want to go China.  Mama and Natalie fly on airplane in the sky, ok?"

[Note From Mama:  She calls China "Natalie's China"  and says "No you China, Daddy/Mommy; Natalie's China!"  I want to take her on a heritage trip in about 10 years.]
