Tonight we celebrated the Chinese New Year...last night was a soccer night so we had to wait until tonight and it was a blast! Abby really opened up about China and I spent 3 1/2 hours making pork dumplings! Yep...for those of you who know me personally, that was 3 1/2 hours!! (Cooking is not my favorite activity!)
Someday, Abby will understand what an act of love that is, every time I make her dumplings!
And I can't believe I'm going to post this picture of my rear end, but it was just too funny...yes, I wipe my hands on my pants when I cook!!
The girls had so much fun...they were a great help folding all of those dumplings...it was clear Abby had done this before!
I splurged on decorations at Party City and decorated the dining room... Who knew when I painted it red, 5 years ago, before we had ever even considered adoption, that it would be the perfect color to celebrate Chinese New Year!
(Yes, there is an empty picture frame waiting for us to finally frame some art we brought back from China...those walls look so bare...)
Next, the girls cleaned up and put on their Chinese outfits... (Well, Mackenzie's is just a top.)
Abby, we are so blessed to be able to celebrate the Chinese New Year with you! It was an honor to cook something you love and an utter joy to watch you eat your weight in dumplings!! You will never know how excited I was when you tasted the first one and said, "Taste gooood, mommy!"
We love you!
I pray that this year is blessed beyond your wildest imagination!
