Chinese New Year Recap

We celebrated our 1st Chinese New Year with our sweet friends the Kendricks and it was so fun! We had lunch at a local Chinese restaurant, where KayLi had her favorite "Nonnles!"

Is Toryn adorable or what?! He told his mama that morning that he looked "petty." I think he's right!

A small side note...We have been trying very hard to teach KayLi who is a boy and who is a girl. Last weekend KayLi was going through her mental list of just about every person she knows asking if they were a boy or girl. When I would answer, she would move down the list to the next person. But not when she asked about Toryn. When I answered that he was a boy she replied, "Dat myyyyyyy boy."

He's even cute when he's making silly faces at the camera!

I can't figure out where this silly face came from though...pick one, they're both silly!

Don't the guys look excited!

It was so fun to celebrate with these sweet people. Red envelopes and stuffed tigers are a far cry from a big traditional New Year celebration in China but these two precious little people couldn't have been more loved!

It looks like a fun time!!! We did a small celebration with our family, but I long for the day that we're able to expand that tp include other adoptive families. Of course, I also look forward to the day our Soryn is home celebrating with us!!! :)

We had such a great time! I really enjoy every minute we spend together. Your family is pretty special to us! I love the story about KayLi saying Toryn is "mmyyyyy boy". He kinda thinks she is special, too!
