China Travel Group Dinner

Last Saturday Hannah, my parents and I had the pleasure of getting together with some of our China travel group. What fun we had! We'd been home 2 1/2 months and it was wonderful to see how the babies had grown and were progressing with their new families! It was also good to share stories of getting over jet-lag and sleeping schedules.

I am SO THANKFUL that Hannah is a super sleeper! This morning we were able to get up in the middle of the night to take my parents to the airport and then go back to bed. I was surprised when Hannah was wide awake and happy for the first hour of the getting ready and car ride (2:30 - 3:30am) and then she went back to sleep and stayed asleep when I transferred her back into her bet just before 5am and slept until her normal wake up time of about 8:30. I love that she's a 'goer' just like her mommy and is willing to do things at the drop of a hat! Yeah XiaoFen!!

Here are pictures of the families, first in China in November and then at Saturday's dinner.

Our Family

Anna and Peter

Tony and Marj

Robert and Bonnie

There were 6 other families in our group who unfortunately weren't available for Saturday's dinner. Hopefully more will be able to make it in April when we get together next. I love keeping in touch with these friends and the importance of the friendships for the girls is priceless!


  1. What a wonderful way to catch up!

    Keep smilin!

  2. Adorable children!

    You do have a princess for a daughter, Catherine. I don't think many babies would be so cooperative about getting up in the wee hours to take a ride and then going right back to bed and to sleep on cue. Hannah has been a wonderful sport from the get go. Signs of her sweet personality.

  3. HOw fun! I think it is so important too that we keep up with those we traveled with. Hannah is darling.

  4. I love the "before and after" pictures!! You can see how everyone has changed . Everyone is glowing!!!

    Love and blessings, Kristy

  5. It's so special that y'all are able to get together so often! Thanks for sharing this.

  6. I'm so glad that you had a chance to reunite with the other families. It's important to keep those relationships going.
