Gracie-Cakes Has Arrived!!
















Robert posting for Sally: She is having to email me.....then I post for her. Some of you are familiar with the routine. Sally says:

I received Gracie Mae a few hours ago. She is one amazing little girl. She has lived up to and beyond all expectations I could have of the yummiest cupcakes imaginable!

The baby home that she was at did a great job preparing her for me. She knew me as mama right away. She knows our entire family in the photo album. She is answering some things to me in English already. She is repeating words in English. When I had her in the bath, she called me "Mommy, Mommy"! She is cuter than I could ever describe. She chose a dress to wear after her much needed bath. I told her she was beautiful. She started dancing and twirling with her arms up saying "Beautiful, Beautiful".

My heart is full! A childhood dream has come true, almost took as long as it did Moses to get out of the desert, but waiting patiently has brought me such a blessing. Gracie Mae you are a beautiful cupcake!
