In the morning we went to the play "If you give A Moose A Muffin".
The girls love the book and they enjoyed the play just as much!
We went with another Mom and her daughter (Liz and Zoey)!
All the girls are used to doing this. It's Emma and Ellie's 3rd play. They sit nicely and are attentive!!
I think they were actually able to follow the play- I think, I hope!
Honestly, I didn't even know it was Chinese New Year. Liz asked what we were doing in the evening- ahhh, nothing? Oops, so we made a quick decision to go out for dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant!
Oh course, once we were there someone had to ask us about the red envelopes- shhhhh, I said!
Ya, just can't do it all! I was happy to even be there- let's call it a victory and a wonderful celebration!
They were all thrilled to get chopsticks with their dinner!
Except when Emma and Ellie tried to use them they had forgotten how? We were so surprised.
Sarah remembers how and Anna does pretty good with them but Em and El switched to the fork!
It was a really nice evening! Katie and Devan joined us- we all had a great time!
I am becoming a minimalist- and this type of celebration worked out great for a last minute planner, like me!
On Saturday evening we went to a New Years party with our playgroup! The girls dressed in their traditional dresses- we went to church and on to the party! They felt so special in their dresses! Everyone had a great time!!
