Snakes And Ladders

We had a great time celebrating Chinese New Year, as well as attending a wonderful birthday party for another little Chinese Princess... Little Emma's birthday party was GREAT fun!  And it was SO nice finally meeting some of the people I've been "Facebook" friends with for so long!  Rach & I went to the party first.  The kids all had a great time celebrating the Year of the Snake as well as Emma's 2nd birthday!

Our friend Anne Marie was also there, with our little buddy Nicole!  Anne Marie's mom also attended
Trying to get all the little cuties to pose with the big balloon... 

Yes, Rachel was the oldest at the party. She loved being the big sister!

Waiting patiently for the beautiful cake!

It was worth the wait!

Thanks Ms Sherri for the Parasol!

We made a Chinese Lantern
AFTER the birthday party, we FINALLY made it to the local Japanese restaurant... we had been trying to go there to use my Birthday coupon for 2 weeks!  We are so very blessed that we have such an amazing daughter and can take her to ANY restaurant! She is so well behaved that we never have to worry.  We had a really nice Sushi dinner (ok, so not exactly the classic way to spend CHINESE New Year, but what the heck! LOL).  We all enjoyed the Sushi and Gyoza.  And of course, after all the fun of the day, our little princess crashed right there in the booth, sleeping pretty soundly for the last half of dinner!

Our Story

My photo
We are the proud parents of a beautiful little girl. I have not stopped smiling since the moment they placed her in my arms. We adopted her Sept 2008 and it's been nothing but wonderful! She is the best reason to open my eyes every day! Currently living in SW Florida. I've also become a MAJOR Twilight junkie, so now I'm told I'm a TWI-MOM & I LOVE it!
