"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

The world's best Ayi!

It's crazy busy here and I've been chompin' at the bit to blog as I walk around my day thinking, "Oh, I have to remind myself to blog about this!"

I've also been anxious to catch up with what's happening in my blogging buddies' worlds, but it seems like everytime I find a few minutes, I think of something that needs to be done RIGHT.THAT.MINUTE! So, instead, I'm appeasing all of you (and myself) with just a little bit'o cuteness.

My sister picked up Kai yesterday to spend the weekend with him. She just called me and asked me to take a peek at her blog.

I just had to share. Go HERE and take a peek and what my boy's been up to with his Ayi.

Thanks, Ily! You made me smile BIG!

" Mama? Why do you keep saying, "Thank God we're cute?"

Our harmony soloist belts out the greatest rendition of "So Yummy" that you've ever heard.

I don't know about your little ones, but mine are absolutely mesmerized by Yo Gabba Gabba! They just can't seem to get enough of this mind numbing cute preschooler program on Noggin.

And the songs. Oh, yes. The songs. The one we dread enjoy the most and that they sing over-and-over like a broken record most often is the one at that is sung at meal times, "There's a party in my tummy!" Then the background harmony (Anna Grace) steps in with "So Yummy! So Yummy!" (If you really care to join in on the fun where you'll be guaranteed to spend your afternoon singing "There's a party in my tummy! So yummy! So yummy!" click HERE then roll your mouse over the pictures on the left beneath the video image until you find it! Wow...what fun NOT !!!!)

Kidding aside. When all is said and done, I gotta admit that my kids are so darn cute wearing their little shirts and singin' to their hearts content. And after all, isn't that what really matters?

We had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving. Family and friends joined us to give thanks for the the many blessings that have been bestowed upon us. The kids played with cousins while the grown-ups partied enjoyed each other's company. The evening ended with many over-stuffed-and-unbuckled-belts, but everyone was a very happy camper.

Since I know I have a few new readers, I thought I'd take the time and introduce you to some of the very special people that I am so thankful to have in my life.

Here they are:

My beautiful baby girl lovin' on her Mama!

My Kai! Complete and total cuteness!

Scott showing off his chocolate fantasy creation, the famous "Ken Lee" cake.

My serious but adorable little guy, AJ, in deep thought.

My Mom and of course, my beautiful daughter, Amanda.

My sweetheart, Scott (left), my brother and the family's youngest blessing, my precious nephew, Seth!

My Chinese treasures, Anna Grace and Kai, with cousins Emily (background) and Gianna, who just happens to be my sweet Godchild also.

My sister, Ily, with her pride and joy, Seth. Yaaayy! Baby Seth is finally walking! Isn't he gorgeous? I love that boy!

I am so very proud of this young man standing with Scott. This is my nephew, Anthony! He's definitely gonna be a wonderful hubby to a very lucky girl someday!

Kai sharing a special moment with his beloved "Shu Shu", my brother-in-law, Herb.

One of the table decors I really loved! (Had to throw that in.)

The loves of my life, minus our 2 big boys who weren't able to be with us (and who their Mama missed so much!)

Definitely a Mama's boy!

My little prince and princess entertaining themselves while waiting for dinner.
