Gung Hay Fat Choi!

Happy New Year!

Hannah and I celebrated with a group of friends earlier this month and what fun we had!  Many of us became friends a number of years ago while we were waiting to become parents and now it’s a treat to celebrate with our children home!  I still marvel all the time at how blessed we are that God brought Hannah and I together in this most wonderful way to become a family!

It was sweet to look in and see some of the girls gathered around listening to a story being read to them.  (At first I thought it was a CNY story but then I looked closer and realized it was a ‘Frozen’ story.  No surprise there!)IMG_6291

After dining on an Asian potluck dinner, there was the gathering of red envelopes.   This was new to L but she caught on quick and as the most recently home member of our group, everyone oooed and ahhhed over her!  Welcome to Canada Baby L!!!IMG_6294

The kids disappeared after gathering their envelopes so after a few minutes I went to see where Hannah was.  This scene just made me giggle!  Red envelopes ripped open and coins everywhere. IMG_6298


The kids all took turns wearing the dragon as they paraded around playing musical instruments.  We’ve sometimes done this outside in the past but frigid temps easily determined this parade was happening in the warmth of the house!  (LOL…check out some of the boots!  There were almost 50 of us gathered together!  Oh how we cherish these friends who share similar stories to ours!)IMG_6311

  1. Happy Chinese New Year to you and Miss Hannah!!

  2. Looks like a fun time! Baby L is adorable! I don't think I've ever seen that many boots in one place before either! Ha! Happy New Year!

  3. I have never seen that many boots either! What a great time for the kids!
    We celebrate with FCC this Sunday.
    Happy New Year!
