Chinese New Year

Natalie absolutely loves Ni Hao Kai-Lan, so there was no question we had to do something to celebrate Chinese New Year. I stopped at China Pagoda on my way home from work to pick up fried rice and cream cheese wontons. Yes yes, authentic Chinese cuisine.

Natalie decorated red construction paper with stickers and marker drawings. Then I folded, cut, and stapled them to make lanterns. Natalie helped fold. Jenna strung them along a ribbon. When we were finished, I hung them above the playroom door.

Happy year of the rabbit, everyone! Wikipedia says, "The Chinese New Year tradition is to reconcile, forget all grudges and sincerely wish peace and happiness for everyone." So, in the spirit of that Wikipedia page, may you go in peace.
