We have kisses!
And earlier, I tried to get her to go get ice cream with me from the Deli shop next to the White Swan. She tries to get Mom to go and Mom's like, I wanna play on the computer, if you want to go, go with Jie Jie. Mom tells me to go ahead and leave so I do. I go down the elevator, to the deli shop, get 2 small things of Haagen Dazs vanilla and a Haagen Dazs vanilla and almonds ice cream bar (for Mom) and as I'm walking out, there's my Mom and my baby sister. Mom goes 'see? I told you she wouldn't take long', and Reese KaiJin just gets this big grin. She knows when I have ice cream and I shoot to the top of the totem pole. :) I ask Mom what happened and she said after I left, Reese more or less threw herself on the floor and had a fit because she was missing a chance to "go some where". She is a going girl just like her sissy. And we think she missed me, because the other day, her and Mom headed back to the hotel while I went to go pick up something we'd ordered and Reese KaiJin wouldn't let them get on the elevator because she realized I was missing! It's so nice to be missed.
So she's wanting me to help more and is being sweeter and sweeter.
We didn't go to the pearl factory because the other family, the son had fallen asleep like 10 minutes before our meeting time, and Nan Rui is like Reese, when she falls asleep you go with it, and the Mom, Molly, wasn't feeling well. So they were going to skip. And we weren't going to buy anything so we opted not to go and just to go shopping and to Lucy's.
Tomorrow, we go to the Consulate to do the swearing ceremony. And like any American establishment, they have security out the rear. We can only take her some stuff in plastic bags and NO ELECTRONICS AT ALL. No cameras, cell phones, iPods, PDAs, laptops, pagers, etc., etc. Isn't it kind of sad that our government has pissed enough people off that we have to be that careful? *shrug* whatever.
Tomorrow, we have to go order a few more name paintings because we accidentally forgot a few people. oops.
