Happy Gotcha Day KAY!!!

Well, its Kay's day:) No need to tell her, she knows. She was prancing around all day like she was just crowned Ms India or some such thing.

5 years ago today, we boarded a plane from Seoul Korea to bring Ms Kay - the pook-a-rook home to become a forever part of our family. She screamed the whole way. (an early indicator that we would soon be known as the Loud Americans). After a fairly loud and stressful trip, we landed up in chilly MN. Jimmy promptly introduced himself has her big brother and gave her a tour of the house. He then proceeded to try and feed her a bottle. She was not happy.

But, all's well that ends well. She became progressively happier with us (and Jimmy) and soon carved out a place for us in her heart.

To celebrate Kay chosing us as her family, we had chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting and sprinkles with all our friends. The day officially came to a close with dinner at our favorite (and the only) Korean restaraunt in town. The kids ate like we never feed them, all their favorites - Jap Chae, Kim Bop, Bi Bim Bop, Bulgulgi, etc... It was a feast!!

So, here's to you - Kay Marie Jeon Murphy - We Love You!!
