Gung Hay Fat Choi!

Happy Chinese New Year Everyone!

On Sunday we decided to celebrate CNY with some local Families with Children From China. We met at a local Chinese restaurant and had lunch together, it was a little busy and noisy at first, there were over 90 people in the room! Since it was a lunch, we decided to forego Sylvie's nap time, and she did pretty well considering. She was definitely a little more tired and clingy, but was a trooper and held it together.

The organizers for the event had crayons and tiger coloring sheets for all the kids to color. Sylvie liked coloring, but had to be stopped from coloring all over the table cloths! We visited with friends we don't get to see too often and had a wonderful time.

Meeting up with my friend Miah! Let's hold hands.

I like hanging out with Miah and her sisters. We go to gymnastics together too!

Taking a group picture, I kept wanting to walk away but my friend Miah kept me in line.

Eating crackers with my Daddy while waiting for lunch to be served.

Hangin' with my mama, there's a lot of people here. "Don't put me down Mama!"

Wait...there's a window? Did I mention how much I like windows?

Hey guys, come and check this out! Look, I can reach the cord!

  1. Oh, that looks like so much fun!!!! So glad y'all got to enjoy it. And I wanted to thank you so much for your very kind and understanding comment last week. It meant the world... I am taking a break for a few more days, but I had to stop by and share that with you.

  2. Love the pictures, she is a real cutie pie!
    We had our get together last Sunday night and I forgot to put Sugar's Chinese dreass on her! I love that colour blue.
