We were trying on our Chinese New Year outfits for this year and had to get a little "shoot" in while we were relaxed and not rushing out the door.
I don't know if the same thing happens to you but the last time to get a good picture is when we're all dressed and ready to go. It just does not work.
But this did. A nice relaxing week-end day with nowhere to go and treats to be had.
I used one of these shots for the iheartfaces photo challenge (ahem....I'm # 243) and a commenter asked how could the girls not eat those heart lollies.
Well, they did. You don't take candy out of a babies mouth, right!
I believe that was item #1 in the basic parenting handbook.
In a school where 98% of the student body are Italian - she still loves the idea that she is unique. May it always be that way!
Each year we celebrate Chinese New Year with 3 families that are very dear to us. We travelled to China for our first babes and have remained close since. We each returned for a second so we're 8 kiddos now. We all make different Chinese dishes and one of the Dads runs around in the snow lighting fireworks to the delight of us all.
So Dahlia and I did some artsy things to prepare the gift bags.
AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL !!!
