Xin Nein Kuai Le!

Happy Year of the Golden Boar!! We celebrated at two events this year. Last week was the Florida Great Wall CNY event in Tampa where Marc emcee'd the event. There were 350 in attendance and it was a total blast. We even got to see four families that we traveled to China with and their beautiful daughters. It has been 9 months since our adoption journey and it was amazing to get back together again. There was a photo taken by a couple of the families of the girls together but I still need to track that photo down. The second event was this evening. We celebrated with our FCC - South Florida Family and that was wonderful as well.

Both events had Lion Dancers and our FCC event even had fireworks. Katie Starr was very brave for both; even when the lion actually placed his mouth over Katie and my heads after I fed him his red envelope. She screamed but never cried. She even clapped with excitement when they were a comfortable distance away. Justin, my parents and my best friend Kira came with Katie and me to the FCC event. Marc was unable to attend.

This very lucky year of the Golden Boar is starting out wonderfully; full of fun, family and my children together. This is also the year we will complete our family with Ethan so it will be a lucky one indeed! Enjoy the pics....
