Chinese New Year - 2009 - Year of the Ox

January 25th we planned a great party for Emily's immediate family, Grandma and Grandpa and us to celebrate Chinese New Year. Our house was all decorated, the table looked great and we were so excited for Emily and Kara to arrive. Well, the time came and in walked Kara looking beautiful in her new silk dress, hair on top of her head and wearing her flat black shoes. Following behind was Miss Emily, dressed in denim jeans and a pink top. Of course she looked adorable, but she refused to wear the beautiful new silk dress Mom and Dad had gotten her. They even bought her big girl red shoes to match her dress. That is our Emily Xian. She has a mind of her own and uses it, for sure. We all had a great time watching Emily eat with chop sticks with her Dad and passing out fortune cookies to all of us from a beautiful silk pocketbook Grandma brought back from China. Maybe next year when Emily is four she will dress up for the occasion!
Hugs and kisses,
