FCC CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION ~

Sunday was our local FCC's CNY party! I've been looking forward to this mother-daughter day for a while now. We met Meaghan Grace and her mommy there for some yummy food, shopping and some adorable performances.

Mommy & Mia ready to head out the door

Mia was so happy to see Meggie that she blew her kisses ~ too cute!

Here, the girls "pet" the dragon

Here, my China Princess decides she wants to go "bye-bye".

I know it's naptime, and I try to walk her around in hopes that she'll fall asleep.

I try to ward off the tantrum...

Obviously, it doesn't work

40 minutes later (yup, that's how long it went on!)

Meggie watches the Chinese dancers with Mommy
Mia with her red envelope (yes, her mouth is full!)
High five!

Still trying for a decent picture of the girls


Elevator trouble!

Mia and Meggie looked too cute running around in their matching outfits. This is just the beginning for them. I look forward to the coming years, as they bond more and more. They have so much to share. It is just so special; how close in age they are (3 weeks apart), how close they live (the same development); and how close their mommies have become. . .

Mia and I are so honored we could spend this special day with you guys!

Next year, we will celebrate with Wen, Paige and their families!

Below are the pictures we had taken of Mia and Meggie for their very first Chinese New Year:

It took quiet a few tries, but we were thrilled with the results!







In this last photo, Mia has had enough and goes for her thumb,

Meggie loves to imitate and goes for both thumbs!

So Cute!! I had no idea they were so close in age...how wonderful to have each other as they grow up. My very good friend has 2 girls from China and they are 5 & 3...the 3 year old is a few months older than Lucy, so I look forward to all of them sharing a special bond as well.

Thank you for the book suggestion for China...Forever in our hearts. I am actually reading it right now and will add it to the bookshelf. Your daughters are beautiful. The pictures of when you where in China take my breath away. I can't wait for the journey to a place I love that I have yet to see in person. If you would like to share some pictures for a post we would LOVE it.
