The Year of the Ox

Gung Hay Fat Cow-
Happy Chinese New Year!

I'm too tired to journal much- today we had a beautiful funeral (my dear Uncle Don, an amazing man, father & husband), Nick's regional swim meet (he beat his record and came in 2nd on the 200. Go Nick! All your hard work paid off), Josh came home from Klondike camp (freezing, but fun), and the fun Chinese New Year's Celebration tonight, while the older boys went to a Stake Dance. We had a great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones! Thanks Cindy for spearheading this CNY celebration each year.

Wow I love the pool idea, great fun!! I think it is really neat that you keep thier chinease culture/heratige alive, how wonderful for them too to have parents that think it's important.
You guys do have busy schedules holy cow!
Keep up the good work Nick, that's amazing you have that much determination! Trev and Josh your doing great too, I love you all so much,and miss you too....

Good Evening from Atlanta, GA.
Hi Dianne,
I've spent all afternoon and most of this evening going back to 2006 and reading ALL your posts. The girls are so beautiful and sweet, I just had to know about them.
My name is Lila Huggins. My husband of 36 years and I have two grown daughters and 8 wonderful grandchildren.
I recently started reading about China adoptions because I help my daughters homeschool our grandkids. I thought adoption would be interesting and a good idea for them to learn about and so I started reading blogs about it. This is how I found you.
I hope you don't mind our following along with you and the family.
Thank you for sharing.
Miss Lila in Atlanta
