Happy New Year, everyone! This year is the Year of the Pig in the Chinese zodiak, and we celebrated at the Sunny Ridge event again this year. It was our family's third Chinese New Year celebration, but the first with Ting Ting, so it was extra special.
We saw some of our travel mates while we were there. Here Ting Ting and I are visiting with Frances and her daughter Chloe. Frances is wearing a beautiful top she bought in China, and both girls are decked out in their New Year attire. It was fun for Ting Ting to see some friends from the old country.
Lauren and Brandon wore their silk jackets as well. Their cousins Casey (pictured) and Candace and Aunt Chris attended with us again this year.
I injured my back last week, so I can't yet sit here very long, so I'll just attach a couple more photos. Look for more in a few days!
Ting Ting chilling out with her brother and sister.
She loves books, and Lauren reads with her often.
And so does Mom!
Cute story of the week: Sometimes when she's playing by herself she'll pick up a book, open it and say, "blah, blah blah," pointing to the lefthand page, then the right. Then she turns the page and repeats. Irresistable!
