Red Couch Photos!

Here are the famous Red Couch photos! We traveled with four other families to Gracie's province and then met up with the rest once we got to Guangzhou. Suzie and Doug adopted the one and only adorable boy in the group. Suzie's family have become forever friends!! I am so glad we traveled together!

Gracie was the mother hen to all the babies while getting the photo taken. She was so precious with them. The one little baby on her lap cried for the photos unless Gracie held her. Gracie kept kissing her, straightening her little dress and trying to get her to turn her head towards the camera. It was too cute for words!!!

44 hours until we are home in hubby's loving arms!!! Can't wait!!! This has been a wonderful trip for both Gracie and I!!! Can't wait to share some Gracie-cakes with others!!
