Chinese New Year fun…

The Chinese Cultural Center in Phoenix holds an annual event to celebrate the New Year.  Lauren and I met some friends there on Sunday and had a great day.  It was a beautiful 80 degrees and the sun was shining.

The pretty jacket Lauren is wearing is the same one she wore in China for the dress-up pics with the entire travel group.  I can’t believe it still fits, although a lot shorter, two years later!

Happy New Year. Lauren looks adorable and here's one for you, Maisie is still wearing the same jacket she wore in China too and it's been over 4 years!

We were at the Cultural Center on Sunday. My niece (Kianna) and I were talking about a beautiful little girl with the "pretty umbrella". It wasn't until I saw your blog that I realized that it was Lauren. She is such a cutie!

I love seeing Lauren in the jacket now versus in China. What a loving girl she is with her arm around her little friend and her mama. Her smile just amazes me!
