"What is this that I am making momma?...Oh! an OX for the year 2009" "I like making puppets,momma!"
Singing In English and Chinese...
The Ribbon Dance...
" See How fast you can make it twirl!"
"I think it goes like this,Levi."

The Dragon dance...there was one very long dragon and a second smaller dragon(Mandy and Friend) Precious...our blessings!

Precious in His Sight!!
We took all of the kiddos to a Chinese Spring Festival(also known as Chinese New Year)on Saturday. This years celebration wouldn't disappoint. There were fun crafts,dances,singing,musical instruments,and lots of food. The kids had just as much fun as last year. The little ones enjoyed the crafts to make, and they loved participating in all the songs and dance. The big boys didn't quite know what to do with themselves until....they met some girls. Nolan's "boredom" had put him in a rather "ugly" mood(don't you love when your discipline backfires...he wanted us to send him to the car,haha). Then he ran into these girls who happen to "like" cars(speaking his language). Since he had someone to converse with,his day got much better. Mom and dad were very grateful for that! Mandy and her friend M had a blast together. They sang with the choir (Mandy really didn't know all the songs,but she loved being with everyone), danced the ribbon dance and just had to participate in the dragon dance as well. Mom and dad were busy keeping up with all of the kiddos and taking pictures. We did manage to squeeze in a few moments to visit with friends. We left Saturday afternoon and all of us were extremely tired, but we had such a great time that everyone was ready for next year!
