Happy Chinese New Year!

What a difference 1 year makes. Last year on Chinese New Year, we changed our paperwork to reflect our decision to accept 1 or 2 Chinese children up to 4 year’s old, boy or girl, and with or without special needs. Here they are!




The above pictures were taken on Chinese New Year at Mr. Chen’s. It was our first visit to Mr. Chen’s since returning from China. The boys were in love. If Fu Fu could have crawled into the noodle bowl he would have. Zan and Ge Ge were all about some Egg Drop Soup. Now that we have had “real” Chinese food (in China), I will have to say that Mr. Chen’s is pretty authentic. I have always thought Mr. Chen’s smelled different than other Chinese restaurants. Now I know what the smell is. China.

All three boys enjoyed looking around the store. Of course we had to buy a few items. Not frogs in a bag.



How do you celebrate Chinese New Year? Don’t forget the Lantern Festival on February 6!

Love, Lori

I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world.But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive iadoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. Galatians 4:1-7 ESV
