"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

Gong Xi Fa Cai! 新年快樂

A belated Happy Chinese New Year to all! We took the little Asian kiddos to have their pictures taken this past weekend wearing their traditional Chinese outfits. They looked soooooooooo cute! Everywhere we went, people oooohhhed and ahhhed, and of course, asked if they were twins. (Don't fret about AJ not being in the pics, his birthday is coming up next month and his photo shoot is already scheduled!)

Unfortunately, our FCC group is very inactive and has only one event a year, a Chinese New Year party. It was held in January and we were not able to attend. I am so looking forward to moving to an area where these little ones can partake in celebratory events surrounding their heritage. Not being a naturalized American myself, I know the importance of staying connected to your roots and we try hard to allow Kai and Anna Grace the opportunity to do so.

So, without further ado, here are the studio pictures of our two Asian sweethearts and some of the hometaken pictures. Enjoy!

What two sweet little angels! They are getting so big! I can't believe how long Anna's hair it! I LOVE the pigtails! I wish you were closer to us. Our FCC group has at least one event a month and we have the best time!
Happy CNY!
