Chinese New Year 2011

Gung Hay Fa Choy
TheYear Of The Rabbit
This year, on Feb 5th, we had a great time celebrating the new year with lots of adoption friends. Over 1oo people were on hand to visit and eat a Chinese meal together.
Sweet girls!
On this day we also celebrated Molly's "gotcha day".
5 year ago on this day we became a family.

Lindy won a door prize. She was so excited!

Most of the kids who were there.

Lantern trees.
They were so pretty.

Chinese ribbon dancing.

Lindy had a little sickness last week.
Molly got it this week.
She missed three days of school!
A trip to convenient care revealed strepp throat.
She was bored at home and missed Lindy.

Making her own peanut butter & chocolate chip roll up.

Lindy was very excited!


They both ate every drop.

Youth In Action Basketball

So I thought Lindy would love basketball and Molly would complain.
But, no, Molly LOVES it!!
It is so cute seeing them so proud of themselves when they make baskets.

They got the "hands up" move going on here.

We forget to remove Molly's glasses.
Twice she's bent them out of shape.

Here it looks like Lindy is really gettin' after it.
But most of the time she is complaining that it is hot.
And last week she skinned her knee.
I was surprised she went back into the game.

Here they are
the Rafferty Rebounders!!
