Xin Nian Kaui Le!

Our local FCC group had their Chinese New Year party for all our girls (and boys) adopted from China and Vietnam. Here are some pics of Kenzie and Jia. Been trying to get a video completed, but something's wrong with my Pinnacle Studio.... AAAAUUUUGH! I'm so frustrated right now.

I am so happy that both the girls love being Chinese and love the silk dresses. Jia wants to wear hers all the time... a little cold for that, though.

And yes, I put makeup on them. C'mon - it's once a year and they had a blast. They truly felt like little girls and loved being "all dressed up".

Happy new year to you too, Julie! The girls are so beautiful and you did a great job with their hair. Jia always reminds me of you a little bit.

They look amazing!! Beautiful beyond words. Me, I have nothing against make-up once in a while. I also have one that would wear her silk dress everyday if I let her! Why can't they make long sleeved dresses?

Jackie - from the looks of you and Kenny - your kids will be adorable.

Jia and Kenzie are so proud to be Chinese... I love how they have embraced the culture and some of the traditions we have celebrated. I am just so proud of them.

It was so funny - Jia went around telling people "I Chinese!" with a huge grin on her face.
