We like to celebrate Korean holiday for Clarissa and today is one of the biggest Korean holiday of the year. It's Chuseok! Chuseok is kind of the Korean equivalent of American Thanksgiving. Families get together, eat lots of yummy food and the celebration goes on for a few days. It's early this year, some years it's not until October. For anyone who was around when we were grtting ready to travel to Korea to get Clarissa, it was the holiday that delayed our trip a few days because we didn't want to travel during the celebration. I was hoping to maybe have a big party and invite friends over for Korean food but the day kind of snuck up on me and I didn't have time to pull it together, so I just made bulgogi for our family. I taught Clarissa to say Happy Chuseok and it's sounds super cute. Shawn just took her to pick the boys up from taekwondo and I told her to be sure to say it to the Korean owner who is so cute with Clarissa. We'll see if she remembers. So it occurred to me recently that we're coming on the second anniversary of Clarissa joining our family! That really blows my mind. We brought her home on October 15, 2009. This October 15th she'll be celebrating by being the flower girl in the wedding of some good friends of ours! The groom is Korean and he and he fiancé are so sweet to Clarissa. They already picked out her flower girl dress and it's super cute! I just hope she's going to cooperate when it comes time to send her down the aisle! Two year olds can be pretty unpredictable. :) In other news, I read The Help the other day (I was feeling like the only person in the world who hadn't read it) and I LOVED it! If you haven't read it i highly recommend it.Shawn is reading it now and we're going to see it at the theater when he's done. Yay for date night! :) It sounds like Shawn is home with the kids so I'm off to here how taekwondo went!
