Chinese New Year




Last night was our FCC Chinese New Year celebration. We drove about 2 hours away for it and it was so worth it. It was so much fun to see all of these precious children from China playing and having such a great time. They are all so beautiful and such a blessing!


A group shot of all the moms. (I know...I look pregnant! Trust me...I'M NOT!! Obviously, the wrong wardrobe choice!)

Bryce was our dragon for the dragon dance. He wasn't really expecting this but did a great job "winging it". Look at Cade peeking out from behind ;)



These two were so cute. They sat here coloring and doing their crafts together.

The boys were so sweet. They loved being a part of everything.

Showing Braden her dragon fan.

Wesleigh LOVED these ducks. At one point, I thought she was going to climb completely into this pool! She got her sleeves so wet I had to take her turtleneck off.


Getting ready to do our "fireworks". They loved popping this bubble wrap!


It was a great night. I feel so blessed to be a part of this group! I can't believe that next year, I will have 2 little girls running around here!!

What a beautiful lavender little girl! However, my favorite photo is the dragon with Miss W's two magnificent, accomodating brothers!! What they won't do for her, and oh the experiences they are having because of her! Keep enjoying EVERY moment of this journey. We're riding with yall. Lovingly, Lauren McGowan

Ha ha! I have that purple tunic sweater and trust me, nobody thinks you look preggs! I did get a chuckle out of it,though! P.S. Not to be the bearer of bad news, but I'm very frusterated with the sloooooow processing times for I800-A. Just a friendly heads up. :)

Lindy said...

What a fun gathering. Wesleigh looks adorable, as always. I love how affectionate she has become, putting her little hand on her friend's wrist and snuggling up to Cade. Looks like some rubber duckies are in order for her Easter basket.

Debbie said...

Well you don't look pregnant, but in a way you are!! Paper pregnant!! Her outfit is ADORABLE!!!

Patricia said...
