Our Chinese New Year Celebration!


Michael and Lucy helped make red, paper lanterns with Mom.  The ones on either side are store-bought, but they made the middle one.  (They made more than that; I’m not sure what happened to the other ones.)

Mama decorated our table the night before.

We had Asian food for dinner, and then lit off fireworks:

Michael stomping "snaps" with his little lawn-chair.  Sooo cute! :)

The noise was a little too much for some of us, so Mom and Becca went inside with the littles to watch out the window, while I stayed outside and took pictures.

I cannot believe I got such a good picture!  I was just randomly snapping!
