We welcomed the year of the Rooster in 2017. The rooster represents fidelity and punctuality. I could use a dose of punctuality. We celebrated by making Chinese lanterns and decorating our dining room with the Chinese New Year decorations that we purchased in China. We also celebrated Chinese New Year with our sweet friends, the Autry's. They kindly hosted all of our crew at their home. We had such a nice evening, dining on an array of Chinese foods, creating rooster crafts, and reminiscing on our trips to China, while the kids played together. Their son Kai came home a few months before Lottie did. They are the same age and attend the same school. I love knowing they are growing up together and share a common heritage. It is a comfort that God placed this family in our lives. Our hearts were full.
We just happen to have a giant rooster in our dining room already!!
