Forever Family Day #2


Today we celebrated our 2nd Forever Family Day. It's definitely one of those "feels like forever, yet feels like just yesterday" kind of milestones. 2 years ago a little tiny 5 1/2 month old was placed in our arms and we became a family of three. Now, two years later, she has blossomed into this feisty, independent, sweet, sassy and beautiful toddler. Every day she learns something new and surprises me.

I cooked the same meal as last year(Guatemalan chicken with pineapple, Guatemalan rice and plantains). And, like last year, we just had a quiet dinner at home with Grandma.

Awww!!! Congratulations!! Isn't it still just such a miracle that another year has gone by. I too, look at amazement at Maya to see how much she has grown, changed, and learned, and yet it feels like a month ago that she came home!
I would love your Guatemalan recipes. This is the same kind of tradition I would like to start for our Forever Family Day celebrations.
