It's been over a week now since I last posted, and we have been very busy. I'll try to catch up. :o)
Friday, February 6 we met our Seniors from church and our former pastor and all his crew at a seafood restaurant.(photo above) We enjoyed chatting and doing a little catching up. From there we paid a visit to a friend of ours who lives close by to where we were. She's an older lady, but she is such a dear, sweet friend. We hadn't seen her in a while until she showed up at the funeral the previous weekend. Friday night was spent at the funeral home with some friends who had lost their mother. Afterwards, we tried out a Mexican restaurant, and it was not that great.
Saturday, February 7 found us celebrating nearly all day. We started out celebrating Chinese New Year with our local adoptive group. A lot of work went into it, and it turned out very nicely!!! We had a good time. There was a "bouncy house" for the kids, crafts, and food catered by one of our local Chinese Restaurants. Since we didn't have enough Chinese food (LOL), we went to my niece's birthday party at another semi-local Chinese Buffet. She is 2, and she loves crablegs. Thus the reason for partying at the Chinese Buffet. Man, she put away some crablegs!! It had to be AT LEAST 15-20.

Sunday, February 8 was our Lord's Day. Our interim brought 2 wonderful messages.
Monday, February 9 was my neice's actual birthday, and so once again, we celebrated. This time we went to a pizza buffet with all kinds of rides and games. The kids loved being able to play for about 3 hours!! We were zapped by the time we got home.
That brings me kind of up to date. I do have something else to post, but it will be all its own.
