2. I love wearing my charm bracelet that Chris gave me while we were waiting for Josie!

3. I love getting together with my extended family to celebrate the new year!

4. I love seeing my dad enjoy a special drink from Uncle Pat instead of working! A toast to the year of the Tiger!


5. I love all our food at our CNY meal!




6. I especially love my Aunt's desserts!!




7. I love our creative chaos and sneaking in a few crafts with the kids!!





8. I love giving the kids red envelopes!

9. I love seeing the kids attempt their own Chinese Dragon dance!

10. I love seeing my two girls DANCING TOGETHER. Yes. The adoption wait was worth every bit of stress and tears!

FABULOUS fun as always!!!!! I wish we were there, too! We had a party planned, but our icky strep throat episodes and all this Texas snow that we don't know what to do with threw our party out the window! Pooh! Today we are just celebrating with our own spread here at home. Have a great day!!! ; )

Hi Kim,
Looks like a lovely and beautiful celebration (I would expect no less!) Josie is adorable in her chocolate make-up!

Thanks for all the great ideas you have given all your followers over the years. You can see your impact upon me in our CNY/V-day post! (And I kind of "stole" your idea for the post, too!)

I know you and the girls are just having a blast in your new craft room! Boy, do I wish we lived closer, too! We could get in lots of "trouble" crafting and antique shopping!

Lots of love and CNY wishes,
Cindy
