Happy Chinese New Year!


Good thing we had that "dry-run" yesterday. *snort* Someone should have smacked mommy upside the head and reminded her to order the girls Chinese silks before the big finale! At any rate thank goodness they were able to squeeze into last years silks. I know *gasp* last years designs! lol. Hanging my head in shame. We had a super duper great time and the girls did not cry this year when the dragon made his appearance. They were scared beyond belief last year. They proudly inserted their little red envelopes in the dragon's mouth like a soon to be groom stuffing 20 dollar bills in a stripper's garter! They beamed like a Cheshire cat. I have to admit it was cute.Our friends little girl however gave a blood curdling scream that would put anyone auditioning for a thriller to shame. Oh-naturale.....

Happy Chinese New Year to all.

Did you beat last night's time for how long it took to get ready?

Looks like a wonderful event! Sophia had to leave the theater during the dragon dance, it was too loud for her. It was around naptime too, so that might have had something to do with it.

Love your expression in the first picture! So your girls don't usually wear an outfit more than once... why am I not surprised? ;)

Adorable as usual!

We have a no dragon rule in this house. Sydney FLIPS out if anything like that is even in the same building. Your girls (and you) look beautiful!

BTW- where's Sen's blog gone?

Rony said...

I went back and looked at the first picture and I think I look like a crazed lunatic!!

Rony said...

Yes, I do think the lady in the last picture WAS hungry. She was eating over the Koi pond AND it was a sit down dinner. lol... Good lord.
