Happy Birthday, Emma!

Our baby girl was 6 years old yesterday!!  Boy, is that hard to believe!  It seems like just yesterday that we received her referral picture, brought her home, and now, she's 6!!  My how time flies.  She has really grown in the past year too!  She's lost that sweet baby look, and it's been replaced with a smart little girl look - we are very blessed to call her our litte girl...

Happy Birthday, LiYang!!

Our oldest daughter turned 15 on Friday!!  I can't believe she's 15!!  She is so smart, funny, and is a joy to have around!  We celebrated with dinner at a local Italian restaurant, and surprised her with a guitar.  She is a blessing to our family, and we are so happy that she is with us!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Christmas day was one busy day at our house!!  We woke up early to see what Santa had left, opened our gifts, and went to church.  After church, we fixed Christmas dinner for our families, and had another Christmas when all the grandparents arrived!  The girls were spoiled rotten with gifts from all, and they have had a wonderful first Christmas together.  Our oldest son and his wife spent Christmas with her family, so we had them for New Years - and did Christmas again!  Here are some pictures of all our kids and family enjoying a wonderful time together. 

Getting Ready for Christmas

It has been a while since I have posted, so I have put together a slideshow from just after Thanksgiving to just before Christmas.  We decorated the house and tree Thanksgiving weekend, had our annual Families with Children from China Christmas party, and visited a local hotel to see all their Christmas trees and take pictures for our Christmas cards.  We stay pretty busy these days, and I don't get on the computer very often.  Enjoy the show...
