Looking back at February with its chilly weather and indoor activities now that we are facing warm rain and hot sun has been a fun challenge… so sit back and enjoy my extra photos!
Ok so I have to admit… I am hooked on the Lizzie Bennet Diaries on youTube. You can find the main vlog HERE though there are offshoots – Adorbs is a Lydia thing (she has her own vlog). They also have Twitter feeds and Facebook and of course the main page. If you liked Pride and Prejudice… well be ready to see the characters as you have never seen them before – modern and everything!!! I skipped a bunch up to be current with the ongoing drama at the time but have been sneaking back to fill in the gaps as I go… Anyway… the Adorbs…
It is officially the year of the snake! Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
With our red envelopes, homemade fortune cookies and special new shirts for the girls we had a rather amazing day… Granted it WAS a Sunday and a Sunday with a winter weather advisory so the bulk of the day was slow slow slow – sleeping in for me, tv and relaxing for Ken, Sean and the kids… BUT we did send the kids outside to enjoy the fresh white snow.
It was like the world was welcoming in the new year with a clean white slate. It was beautiful!
We had rice for dinner and Emanuel was rather courageous and gave chopsticks a try! He was rather successful. I would still love to get the training hinged sets for the kids. May have to do an eBay hunt!
Of course I took special pictures!! Cookies and red envelopes and happy children! Perfect! I am rather proud of the fortunes in these cookies – like Clean your room and your room will be clean… or Live love laugh and hug or Smile and people will smile back…
Happy Chinese New Year!!
