We always do something to celebrate family, and her Chinese heritage. We read through the diary that I kept when we were in China and looked through old pictures when she was a baby. Someday Don will edit our video. It's a monumental task. But I'd love to see it.
We went into San Francisco and had dinner at House of Nanking. Then went and had frozen yogurt at her favorite yogurt place.
When we got home we gave her two gifts that we bought for her when we were in China. The first was a hand-painted sun umbrella. And the second was a paper fish kite that is really cool, and incredibly fragile. We'll see how long it lasts.
Don and I count our blessings everyday that Elli is in our family. She brightens our lives when everything else seems to be falling apart around us.

Have a great Sunday everyone.
The sun is out. Which is a rare occurrence lately, so we're heading outside.
