Since I used the whole month of February to blog about our China trip to adopt Katie, I didn't post anything about what we did in February. We had a FUN February. It started out with the Super Bowl. Uncle Jeff's Pittsburgh Steelers were in the Super Bowl and we were all on the bandwagon (well....Katie and I were on the bandwagon, not Daddy who was still upset about the Eagles) and ready to party. Of course you all know the Steelers won. We had a great time.

February 7th we celebrated Katie's Gotcha Day. This day is also my Mom's birthday. We went out to dinner for Mimi's birthday the night before. On Gotcha Day we made homemade fortune cookies. Bailey helped and we had fun making up our own fortunes. We had a small family gathering and we enjoyed Chinese food and celebrating Katie's special day.
Happy Birthday Mimi

February 8th we celebrated Chinese New Year. We went for Dim Sum with our local adoption group and then we watched the Lion Parade. The fire crackers were unbelievable.
