Celebrating Birthday #5!

 Dear Faithful and Loving Friends of Lucy Kim,

Words cannot adequately express our gratitude, joy and surprise in having so many of you join us in honoring our girl's 5th birthday.  Oh how fun it was to receive so many cards and donations that will , help her two little friends still in orphanages in China.  I hope to share with you the total number of cards and  donations raised next week.   I've had a few people tell me that they have a "card in the mail" so next week when I'm back on the home front, I will be excited to re-tally and let you know in  a quick blog post the total so that you can praise our Heavenly Father with us!

On St. Patrick's Day, Lucy joined the 5 year old team!  Her birthday fell on a Tuesday this year so we had the fun of celebrating her special day with her ten little preschool friends!

Celebrating with friends
After a birthday meal of Chinese dumplings, lo mein and chicken, 

 we packed up the mini van and headed for the Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia.  Five minutes after leaving our driveway party girl was out like a light.
While I couldn't see her eyes through her shades,
it was quiet which told me she was asleep!
When we arrived at the Ronald McDonald House, we were warmly greeted and asked if  it would be ok to wait to do the check in paperwork.  The three of us were then guided to the dining room area where balloons, party blowers, ice cream and a tinker bell fairy birthday cake decorated with "Happy 5th Birthday Lucy" awaited!   Apparently  some of  guests and employees were waiting on the birthday girl's arrival to help celebrate her special day!

After a long fun partying with friends day, it was time to head up to our room and get settled in as tomorrow was going to also be long but vastly different than a party day.......
