Hannah and I shared 2 weekends of CNY celebrations with family and friends.
She was invited to take in her story books to school and also shared red envelopes with gold chocolate coins with her classmates.
The day after this we braved the snow and went to a mall about a 1/2 hour away to celebrate with a local Chinese Cultural Centre. We enjoyed walking around listening to the beautiful Chinese music, watching people create neat things like paper hearts, and Hannah’s name written in Chinese.
Debbie made this beautiful cake to celebrate the year of the horse.
While the adults were chatting around the dinner table the girls were playing upstairs. It’s amazing how much noise 4 little girls can make! We were sure they were going to come through the roof so E and I went up to check in. We laughed when we saw what our creative little girls were doing!!
Thanks for hosting such a great party Debbie, Dave and Charlotte! We love being invited to share in your travel group celebrations!
Our final celebration was with a group of friends, many who live locally and a few who drove a distance in the snow to join in the celebration. Back in 2006 all of us began to attend a Waiting Mommies group and now we all have our children home to share in the celebrations! Perfect!!
