It's official...

Eli Joshua Xiao Patton is now a part of our family too!
 
Eli's Adoption Day 11-23-12
 
Good morning...
Eli "shared" a bed with Levi... lol
 At the Civil Affairs office
Eli's first video game experience

Mario Kart & Kai won

Eli turns the game when the car turns in the game. So cute!
 Eli signing agreeing to be adopted into our family



And his adoption is finallized! Yay!




Spontaneous play outside train depot, while we wait for our luggage that arrived later than us. Eli had some plastic throwing stars or something, which the kids threw back and forths at each other and just had a grand time getting some energy out.





at first Kai just played the ipod

then he realized I was taking pics and wanted in on the fun


they even got Zoe in on the fun

McDonald's, I have never been so happy to see you. lol

Eli's first hamburger!

And of course we had to find a Starbucks. But before you judge, the kids all have peppermint hot cocoa. Steve & I have the real coffee!






 Back at the hotel relaxing and playing Legos again


Then dinner in the muslim market while shopping with Kobe. After all, it was Black friday right?


Yes, this momma bought them swords... but at least they're wooden.



They are "Rockin' the Batman PJs", as Zoe said.


 
All in all we had a great Adoption day. The next four days are FREE days in Xian. The kids, and mom & dad, are looking forward to NO appointments and just relaxing family fun time.
So thankful & blessed!
 
Gratefully,
Sherry
