THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

Getting Ready for Chinese New Year...

I'm getting ready for Chinese New Year. I am going to send out cards to our family and friends and give them status on the adoption. I thought this would be a fun way to introduce them to some Chinese culture and to answer the questions they have been too polite to ask.
I went to the Hallmark store to buy some cards...if you want some you'd better hurry ladies, they are selling fast. Oh, and I got the cute Chinese New Year stamps at the post office.
Our entire family is going to a Chinese New Year Dinner Party at one of our favorite Chinese Restaurants with our friends over at 'Never Too Many'.
We are really looking forward to the fun!

I need to get myself to the post office and get the stamps. One of those things I think about and then forget. Ugh. Also, I'm dragging my feet on CNY. I have got to pick up the pace. It's a BIG gathering in Ponte Vedra Beach each year with all the other families. No excuse. I just need to move on it.

BTW: I love reading the header on your blog about the 7th diamond. It's just way cool. It always picks me up...

I think it's so cool that you celebrate your daughter's culture even before she has come home.

Our post office ran out of them!:(

Love the cards and I think your celebration sound GREAT!

We plan to celebrate with a local family waiting to travel (Journey to Maggie)

This is a great idea - we began this tradition when we were waiting for Hannah. Emily does a big to-do with her class each year and today all her "year of the rat" stuff came in the mail. She admitted she liked year of the pig better:) So we began brainstorming recipes to take in to share on the 7th.

Hoping to celebrate with some local families whom we have had the joy of getting close to.

happy, happy year of the rat (just doesn't sound right, does it???)
