So Emmy Xiang, what are you....

....going to do when you turn 5 this weekend?

"Umm.....I'm going to My China."

That's right, folks. We're taking her back. To China. Sorta.

Destination: China, via Epcot, World Showcase.

Apparently the REAL China won't take her back. Jim says that's because it's not big enough for her. It's a good thing, too, 'cause we're not giving her back. She's ours. OURS. Isn't that right, Precious?!?

A picture's worth a thousand words....

And aren't you glad about that? Whew! So let these pictures tell of life in the Brown family of late. But first, a brief overview:

We've worked a bit and played some (and wii've played some more); built some things and disassembled others; spent leisure time with family and visited briefly with old friends.

We've mourned the loss of a cousin and celebrated birthdays....the day one became a teenager as well as the new life of a nephew. We've cried and prayed with friends who lost most everything in a house fire and reminded ourselves of the riches that we have because of our Heavenly Father—and these can't be destroyed.

We've enjoyed the beauty of God's creation, marveled at the working of the human body as well as felt the limitations of these bodily vessels. We learned some history and visited historical sites; we've been taught some things, experienced and acted out others and tried to lend a hand when we could, to help someone else.

Heck, we even cheered on Frodo as he walked that long path (again).

Throughout, it is our prayer that we don't lose sight of the reason we're here on this earth: to glorify the One True God, and to enjoy Him....forever.
