The Chinese New Year celebration will officially begin tomorrow, January 29 and runs through February 12. It's the year of the Dog. Those born in dog years (1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006) tend to be loyal, kind and generous. They will work to right wrongs and are able to keep secrets.
There are different rituals each day with the final day being the Lantern Festival. This day is the first full moon of the the New Year and marks the end of the New Year Celebration.

In three days, it will be four months since my LID in what started out as a six to seven month wait and is now looking more like a 12-14 month wait. This is crazy.

My wonderful August Secret Pal sent these gifts. The canister is full of candy from China. I will be hosting the February Waiting Families dinner at my home so I will bring out to share with that group. My August Secret pal also sent me a lovely card with good wishes. Thanks for being so thoughtful!!

Don't be surprised to see the flowers show up at some point in Ava's Lifebook. I'm even considering using them in lieu of a family "tree". hmmm... I'll have to give this some more thought.

I have never been a scrapbooker so this is all new to me. I already have a book so I went over to Joann's and found a number of embellishments, many of which I probably won't end up using on this page. Although nothing cost more than $4, I still ended up spending $50, not a cheap hobby. I'll post a picture when I eventually get it done.

We'll pickup the Insight Bowl next year and over time, it will grow into a great event as well. After all, it is Tempe's vibrant, energized, college town atmosphere that makes this such a fun event to be a part of. Things that the new host city of the Fiesta Bowl can't begin to compete with.
