A Day To Celebrate

We were so excited when we realized we were going to be with Gordon's, our dear friends we met in China,  on Max's referral anniversary.  What made it super special was that it was also their referral anniversary for Lulu.  We knew we had to celebrate! 

We planned a fun Chinese meal to celebrate the occasion.  

It was actually more like a Chinese feast!  We had orange chicken, shrimp bok choy and ginger garlic vegetables with chow mien noodles. It was so much fun to be together and to be able to celebrate this special day together.

We each took our referral pictures along to take pictures of the kids holding them.
 Lulu sat so sweetly holding her picture and smiling.  

Max on the other hand thought this was a fun game! 

This was about as good as it gets before his picture ended up in the sand! 

We then attempted some pictures of the two of them together.  This was their "cheese" picture. 

Love this one with Max's arm around sweet Lulu!

Just 7 months ago this was the 2 of them looking at each other ....

just look at these cuties now! 

We both feel so blessed for God's gift of a son and daughter.

Just plain sweetness! 

We also took their Chinese formal outfits that we bought for them in China.  It was fun to reminisce about what our referral calls felt like and how we reacted. It also was fun to reminisce about our time in China together and how much they have changed since they wore these outfits for the first time!

They each have a new twinkle in their eyes!

I love this picture of both of them looking at Lulu's referral picture! 

We are blessed! What a special day full of celebration and thankfulness for our little Asian blessings in our families! 

Happy 1 year referral Max and Lulu! You two will always be part of each others story.  I am so thankful that God worked it out for us to be together on this very special day! We celebrate the two of you today! To top it off it is also 7 months today that we held each of you in our arms for the first time! We have a lot to celebrate and that we did! You are loved and have changed our families in such a special way! We can't wait to see what else God has in store for your sweet little lives!
