Chinese New Year

We celebrated CNY a day early this year.  We met our Families with Children from China (FCC group) at a resteraunt in BGreen.  The little girls were dressed in their Chinese outfits and had a ton of fun.  ER was wild.  She loves playing with anyone- especially little girls who squeal, jump, and run like she does.    Welcome to the Year of the OX.

Birthday Girl

ER celebrated her 2nd birthday in style.  We had her a DORA party on Saturday afternoon complete with a dora cake, dora balloons, dora everything.  Several friends came and we had a great time.  Our special guest was L who was ER's cribmate in the orphanage.  We travelled back from China together and are blessed that L only lives about 45 minutes away from us.    On Monday- her actual birthday- we celebrated at home with only Mom, Dad, and ER.  She wore her crown and had a birthday cupcake with candle to blow out.  We sang and opened more presents.  Wow.  Christmas followed by birthday makes for a lot of presents!
