Last week, on the one year anniversary of the boys coming home, we had our families over to celebrate. We didn't do anything huge. We had some cake, ordered pizza and made some Congolese food for everyone to try. In the future, we'll give the boys something we bought them in the DRC, but we decided to wait until they were older and can understand a little better.
The boys tried the Congolese food we made. They weren't too keen, but soup isn't the easiest thing for kids to eat anyway. Next year, I want to try a dessert instead of having cake.
Despite the low-keyness of the evening, it was a lot of fun. It was great to celebrate the boys with the people who love them most and those that were there the day they came home. I still can't believe it's been a whole year.
