Christmas Vacation in Virginia

Happy new year, our dear families and friends! Our Christmas vacation in Virginia was fabulous! Other than shopping, eating, shopping, and eating, we spent much quality time with our family out there. Thank you, Don and Sok, for being such wonderful hosts. We love your fully furnished basement equipped with a workout room, and theater room. Timmy didn't want to come back to Houston. The moment we got on the plan, he screamed for good ten minutes, crying that he wanted to stay in Virginia with you guys. We are getting ready for another grand trip to Taiwan coming up this Sunday. I know. I party too much. I will let the pictures do the talk!

Movie night sounds great, but, n0, popcorn is not dinner.

Thank you, Uncle George for the early Christmas presents!

Cousins, Cousins, Cousins, how we miss you!

All we need is some spoiled kids to complete the picture.

Here they are.

Jasmine, thank you for not being bossy this year.

Timothy finally finds his perfect game match, Collin.

Breakfast at Bob Even's in our pajamas!



We had so much fun in Pump it up, thank you, Uncle Don.

Kids overcame their fear, and played with Jada. That's Aunt Karla pregnant with the twins, Daniel and Madison.

Timmy loves eating Pho and drinking the big bowl of soup the man way.

We had a get together party at Vi and Cedric's house. Thank you for your hospitality! Thanh basically grew up with those friends--first going to Dulls Branch together, then colleges in Utah, while most of them moved back to Virginia, some stayed in Utah and Houston. Hope we get to do this again next year.

Hot mamas.

Good job on reading this far down. The Dao's in Houston loves to keep in touch with you all!

We miss you ( and your cooking) greatly, Grandpa and Grandma!
Mommy wants to eat your homemade eggrolls now! Please.

Hey, one more thing, that was a cool football game BYU played. The magical finger that blocked the field goal was the answer to many prayers.
