just a few more photos

The entrance to the Chinese New Year Party had this really cute blow up -
what a perfect photo spot!
The dragon parade started the party- Monkey and Ladybug were close to the end. They were pretty serious about it.

I love this! One of my Christmas gifts [to myself, I do believe]

This is part of a pair of lamps for Ladybug's room. I think they are wonderful. Karol Ann spotted them in an antique store, and knew that I would need them !

Chinese New Year/Super Bowl/just a good time

yesterday was the local Chinese New Year celebration. Monkey and Ladybug wore their Chinese outfits, and had the best time in the parade. Ladybug made crafts, played, and ran around the party. Monkey was in the big-kid-blow-up-thing the minute it was inflated, and stayed in until we were ready to leave. I am looking forward to the photos that were taken of them- and will post them asap
Today we had the "Souper Bowl of Caring" at church, and had lots of great soups to try. Ladybug and I ate our vegetable beef with kasha, but the boys tried several different things. It all looked and smelled fantastic, and I hope we raised lots of money .

In a little while, we are going to a Super Bowl party, and I am trying to decide--- should I take a book to read, my laptop, or pack a scrapbooking bag? I really only like to watch football in person, but Monkey loves it , so we are going. I will take some type of craft, for sure. [and I am sure Clark will sneak his crossword puzzle book in with my craft]

Valentine truffles and cards to make this week- and I hope you all have a great Valentine's Day!
