Chinese New Year Celebration!

Well, Claire was as happy as a lark during the year's Chinese New Year Celebration. She loved going from room to room doing the different crafts and trying all the different dishes. She tore up the lo mein! Though she is still too young to understand the importance of Chinese New Year yet, we hope she enjoys being around all the children from China with their forever families also. Jesse, however, learned alot and had lots of questions about it. We want him to learn a bit of Claire's native culture also!

Mommy & Claire enjoying the festivities.

Daddy feeding Claire all the sugar she desired!

Instead of just smiling for the camera, she decided to constantly blow kisses, until the camera was put down, then she decided to cooperate!

Chinese New Year continued...

Claire posing with a child a bit younger than she...they enjoyed throwing the balloons back and forth!
All the kids with their siblings! Jesse and Claire are on the 2nd row almost all the way to the right.
Promise to post soon!

Happy New Year!

Well, sorry not many photos to post today, but I promise many more soon! We have still been getting over our sicknesses and enjoying Lance's siblings and their families, who have been in town all week! Here is Claire playing with her cousin Keri, from Jackson. Claire looks like she's ready to roll....
Claire, when asked to smile now, scrunches her face as tight as possible until she knows the picture has been taken! Oh well.....hopefully this phase will pass!
Will post again soon! Love, Gretchen
