Lunar New Year Party at Chinese School

Making Dumplings

She did a great job!

Making "Year of the Rabbit" masks

Minah had so much fun too!

My smiley girl!

Today at Chloe's Chinese class with Miss Helen they celebrated Lunar New Year.  They learned about some of the decorations, foods served, and traditions.  We all learned how to make dumplings.  Even Minah made some with help from me.  The children sang some songs and danced.  We ate dumplings later, chestnuts, and some yummy Chinese deserts.  Normally the parents and siblings wait outside during class but we all were able to join in the fun today!

On another note, it seems like everyone has been getting sick at our house.  It started with Ryan two weeks ago and last week Minah came down with a double ear infection again.  I got sick and so did Rachael.  Now tonight Chloe started running a fever.  I don't think she was feeling well this morning and it shows in the pictures.  She had fun but wasn't quite her spunky self.  Tomorrow we are supposed to get a big snow storm.  They are predicting a blizzard with a foot of snow for our area!  At least we will have a few days of rest at home so hopefully everyone is feeling better soon!
