Happy Year of the Dragon!!!
|Chinese New Year is a wonderful opportunity for us to help the Gs celebrate a little bit of their heritage. So we see it as a special day in our house. The girls each wore one of their pretty silk dresses (qi paos) for the day.|
|And we made these pretty lanterns. Easy, fun, and lovely.|
|We had a yummy dinner of orange chicken, noodles and veggies, egg rolls, and oranges. Notice the girls are using their chopsticks!|
|This was my (unsuccessful) attempt at making fortune cookies.|
|These are the fortunes in the above cookies. Gracie wrote them. :)|
Happy Chinese New Year!
