I could list a zillion reasons that I'm so happy we moved home and towards
the top of the list would be the wonderful friends and families we have met
through Panda Pals, the China adoption playgroup, that "adopted" us into
their group when we returned home!
We get together at least four to six times a year and look forward to it each
and every time!
One of our favorite annual activities that we look forward to is when we go to
a local baking store and decorate gingerbread houses!
Gabriella was really wanting to master putting the icing on this year!
My proud little princess! She worked over and hour to complete her house and
did a great job!
Spending so much time and energy on her gingerbread house led to quite a
hungry little girl! We went out with our "panda pals" for a wonderful Chinese
meal where my baby girl ate 16, yes 16 pot stickers or fried dumplings, a bowl
of egg drop soup, half a portion of edamame and half a bowl of sticky rice...oh
and let's not forget the two cups of hot tea and a little of my combination
fried rice. I'm thinking she was more than ready for some authentic Chinese
cooking of which she enjoyed every, single bite of!
