We Say Goodbye, They Say Ni Hao

Welcome Things

Welcome Things

It’s official. 2012 is coming to a close. What did we accomplish over the past year? We got married. We became an aunt and uncle twice (not really our accomplishments, but we’re pretty excited about the new titles). We sold our house and cars. We got rid of a lot of stuff. We packed up a lot of old and new stuff. We took it with us to our new home in China.

It’s been three weeks since we said goodbye to our family and friends and left without looking back (sorry moms). We were welcomed by the creepy little animals, cartoons, or whatchamacallit things you see above, which are all over our new town of Haiyang.

These last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind, but a good one for the most part. Pretty soon we’ll tell you all about it in more detail, but for now, here’s wishing everyone a happy new year!

    They were the mascots for the 2012 Asian Beach Games and also for the 2008 Olympics. I just learned their names too: Sha Sha, Yang Yang, and Hai Hai (from left to right).
