Cousin Hannah

Twice a year Andy's cousins host parties at their house.  We haven't been to one since 2008, due to living out of state.  Today, for the Fourth of July, they hosted their first party of the year.  They invite all the family (which is quite large) as well as many friends from their church.  Andy has to work on Sundays, but we were able to attend the party this evening.  It was so much fun catching up with everyone and seeing friends and family that we haven't seen in over a year.  For many, this was the first time that they were seeing Ella.

One special treat for us was that it was the second time that we've met Hannah.  Hannah is Andy's cousin's daughter.  She was adopted from China when she was 13 months old.  We met her a few months after she came home, but have not seen here again in close to a year and a half because she lives in Texas.  She is only two months younger than Arin and such a sweetheart.  Hannah is adorable and she kept asking me to put Ella down so that I could hold her, which of course, I loved. 
The three girls had so much fun playing together and they were all amazed to learn that they are cousins!
