Skating Party

 Two of Kianna's classmates were born on the same day. Every year they celebrate their birthdays with a joint birthday party.
 This year Lexi and Ella decided to have a roller skating party. The party was held in a beautiful skating rink in a local church. They were the only ones there. They skated, had pizza, and cupcakes.
When Kianna arrived they asked Caeli if she wanted to join the party. Both girls had so much fun skating!

Happy Birthday Vylet

 Mariah's niece, Vylet celebrated her first birthday. We all attended her birthday party.
 Kianna and Lylie enjoyed the bounce house in the backyard. They ran around and had so much fun.

Movie Night at School

 The elementary school that Kianna goes to holds a movie night every October. We have gone every years since Mariah started kindergarten (except the year we were in China). The girls love to attend. Kianna had fun with her friends, ate dinner, played and watched "Matilda". Caeli and Mariah found old classmates to hang out with, the weather was cool and beautiful, and everyone enjoyed a fun evening.

Seven Years Ago...

 ...today I was on the other side of the world.

Two nannies walked into the room with a tiny little girl who was so scared. 
 And we fell in love instantly. Mariah and Caeli were 8 and 5 ½. They adored their sister from the minute they met her.
 Kianna Xiu, over the years  you have grown into an amazing young lady.

 You have brought such joy to our family!
Happy Gotcha Day Sweetie!
