Chinese New Year...


We really enjoyed a wonderful Chinese New Year. We went to a very nice dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant with Steffie and her family. My camera batteries died (as usual, but the hubs keeps sticking up for the ever-failing camera). But Steffie e-mailed me this photo of Eli and Sophia together. Those two had a fantastic time running around, dancing and entertaining everyone. The company was wonderful, so was the food...it was a great time.


Also, we got this card in the mail from Tim's Aunt Carol. She's my Aunt Carol too now that we are married and she is a wonderful supporter of our family. I just love her. This is what she made inside of the card and it really touched my heart.

Sounds like a great time, love the pic of Eli and Sophia very sweet.



ps. I'm looking for a video that I seen on someones blog not too long ago that starts out with a mother in China writing a letter to her daughter by candle light before she sends her to an orphanage....do you happen to recall seeing it? I must have lost my marbles, I've seen it a dozen times but can't seem to recall where. LOL!
