Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Happy Chinese New Year!

 We got a few of our local families together to celebrate Chinese New Year this past weekend.
 That is a lot of kids,, and they all had a blast :)

 Everyone outdid themselves and brought the most beautiful and yummy, and plentiful food.  But most of all it was so great to get so many amazing and friendly families together...families that we all know and love... families that would all be there for each other whenever we had a problem or just wanted to meet up at the park with last minute notice.
 Here's my hubby making 3 plates at once and helping Jackson do his.. I think I asked him to hold my drink while I was taking pics and he looked at me like I was a bit nuts..  not sure why?
 Here's the two true party planners...they have been so excited for this party for months, they had craft tables and decorations galore... we let them lead the way and they did a great job.. they had so much fun. They look just a bit happy.
Seriously they even made the ice tea cute :)
And their poster they worked on... so sweet :) 

 And then there was us,, we were in charge of the clean up :)  Thanks ladies,  we had a great time!

Looks like I moved from your area just a little too soon! I knew I recognized at least two other families there in pictures on Jennifer's blog.
I am blessed though, this Saturday is my oldest's four year forever family day and we get to celebrate it here in town with two of the girls that were from her orphanage. We're making dumplings for 15...
