Sunday in Guangzhou

Today after breakfast and skyping with Tom, we found our way to the local grocery store.  There we picked up supplies for the week---noodle bowls, oreos, Sprite & Pringles. (the necessities!)

Then, we dropped off our groceries and headed back out to Shamian Island to meet some fellow adoptive parents for lunch at Lucy's. (ok, yes, for those who are counting that is twice in two days.)

Of course it is conveniently located in the midst of a very picturesque location, perfect for picture taking.

With the "required" rabbit ears....

and without.

Of course, there is always a lot to see on the island, especially the "local color" if you will. Today's theme, Christmas!

Guess who took these photos?

Miss "North Pole" here was happy to pose for a picture.  

Of course, the big guy himself had to make an appearance.

I, on the other hand, was more interested in this kind of local  scenery.

Not sure why, but it surprised me to see Palm trees in China...

Plan for the rest of the day?  Blog, read, and back to the island to meet with our friends from the Great Wall who are here after getting their new daughter.  The Orient Express I think is on the agenda.  (for dessert and much needed fellowship. Noddles in the room for dinner tonight!)

On a completely unrelated note, I ask for prayer for a family we know who is prayerfully considering one of the children that I posted about on Wednesday.  We are thrilled that the Lord is laying a burden on their hearts and the hearts of other families who have responded to our HIS call.  Pray that sweet Matthew, Willow and Stewart from Cameron's orphanage in Wuhan will have committed families soon!
