Happy Chinese New Year...a little late!

We attended our local FCC chapter's Chinese New Year party today. I swear, the group gets smaller and smaller every year...very few families are adopting from China now (sigh!) But we had a wonderful time, hanging with families we have known for years now. Now Emma's at a sleepover and I have an evening to myself. So what to do...

Braces no more!

Emma got her braces and palate expander taken off today. She's had the palate expander for about 8 months and braces for just three months. But the orthodondist says we have to let more of her permanent teeth come in and then decide if any other orthodontia is necessary. In the meantime, she'll have to wear a retainer at night, which should be great fun for her.

I have to say, her front teeth look great...very straight and no big gap or anything (as you can see in this photo of her serenading her toothbrush!

The Pokemon girls...

Emma and her good friend Jenna are both in the midst of Pokemon-mania. Whenever they get together, they huddle over their Pokemon cards and books and speak what sounds like a foreign language to those of us who are clueless about Pokemon.

Jenna's 8th birthday is this weekend, and when her mom asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday, she said she just wanted Emma to come over and play Pokemon. So that's what we did today. After a nice lunch at Pei Wei with Jenna and Kay (Jenna's mom) I dropped Emma off at Jenna's house for a couple of hours and the girls played with their Pokemon cards, watched a Pokemon movie and read their Pokemon books.

The two had a wonderful time!
