Gung Hei Fat Choy!

Hannah and I are blessed to have many friends to celebrate CNY with!

Back in the years when I was waiting for Hannah I met many others who were also waiting for their children.  Friendships were formed as we met a number of times as a Waiting Mommies group.  We still get together a couple of times a year now to celebrate Chinese New Year/Tet and the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival.  We are beyond blessed to be parents to these amazing children!!IMG_0119 - Copy

Hannah and I were blessed to be given a trip to Disney with them by Nana and Papa.  To say we were excited and thankful is an understatement!!DSCN0687
We normally visit Florida together in November with my parents but it hadn’t worked out this year and we were all missing it.  Nana and Papa took care of that!DSCN0686

Thank You!!!

I received the AllEars.Net newsletter last night and quickly scrolled to the bottom to see who had won the contest and look what I saw!
 I just showed Hannah and she was pretty excited to see her picture!  Hannah's favourite princess used to change about once a year but Mulan has been her favourite for a couple of years now.  When we were at Disney in September Mulan told her that she was born in Hunan too and Hannah has often shared how much she likes that.

Thank you so much to all of you who voted and shared on Facebook!  I was surprised how far my little post reached and how many took the time to vote.There is no prize, just the fun of seeing my sweet girl when I go to the website. 

Thank you again!!

It's no secret that Hannah and I are huge Disney fans!  After our trip in 2014 I entered this picture in a photo contest with a website ( that I use often when booking Disney trips for us and others.

Last January they chose Hannah's picture to feature in their weekly newsletter!

This is where you come in.  If you have a moment, can you please go here and vote for 'January 27, 2015 "A Mulan Moment".

You don't have to sign up for anything and it will only take a minute.  Voting closes January 3, 2016.

Thanks for doing this!!

Gingerbread Houses 2015

Since the kiddos were little we've had a tradition of getting together to attend a gingerbread class at a local grocery store.  We were thankful when we found a night when all 4 families were available again this year.

This year's group was Makenna and Hannah

my nephew Kallen

Maddie and Alyssa

Katelyn and Nathan.

As they're grown the kids are able to do more and more on their own and we were there as support and to hold things as they dry.  Oh yah, and possibly my SIL Trish and I ate some of the extra pieces Kallen chose not to use. 

It's neat to see how creative each child is and how each home is unique from the others.  This is Hannah's finished house as she sprinkled her house in snow.

The finished products!
