happy birthday Aiyi!!

The girls love painting birthday banners. Even when it means they all have to reach across each other and claim their various letters. They do pretty good sharing the tight space - all at once. Today is a good friends' 58th birthday.

This woman is amazing. She helps about 4 different families in their homes: cooking, cleaning and taking care of many little ones 6 days a week! She also maintains her home, with two grown kids of her own. She is our Chinese Auntie...who simply adores our kids. For our family, she watches the girls one night a week so Justin & I can go on a date, just the two of us. She is such a gift to our clan. She also teaches our girls Chinese, and plays as she goes.

Happy Birthday Aiyi - we are so glad you were born!!
