We love Ninja and Yee Yee

Okay, so these two special friends show up in our little photo blog a lot and you might be wondering where they got their names.

In Chinese culture, family members are often referred to by their position in relationship. Yee Yee means "mother's little sister". (No, Manya isn't really my sister, but she is just like one.) That makes Matt (mother's little sister's husband) Yee-Jeung, but when JP first started talking it came out Ninja and, naturally, it stuck!

I cannot tell you what a significant role these two play in our lives. We love them!
