I'm hosting my first "Matilda Jane" party March 12th! YAY! Can you tell I'm so excited?!? these clothes are so fun and unique! You can only buy the clothes through a "trunk keeper," not online.  The woman who designs and makes these clothes is so creative-you should check out her blog : www.matildajane.typepad.com 
It's so fun to read.
Anyhow, I found out about MJ from other friends blogs and just fell in love with it!

Lunar New Years Celebration

I've been working on my photography lately-well at least taking pictures on "manual" vs. "auto," although, i still don't completely get it.  The class I was taking didn't help much either-i'm hoping to learn more by default.  I took these most recent pictures yesterday before attending our playgroups Lunar New Years Celebration.  It has actually been slightly warmer outside, so the kids were able to run around outside a bit.




I like this picture of G below watching the dance celebration w/ all the girls and their black hair and striking red bows


Here are some random photos I caught of the children running around in their beautiful dresses-it was very colorful!

This picture was taken right before the Dragon Parade started-all the children were lined up with their little drums.
One of the moms was helping pass out red envelopes to all the children
I kept trying to photograph this little girl-i found her to be so adorable!  This was the best picture i could get as she was on the move!
This little boy, M, was also adopted from Taiwan-he has the sweetest little face-i couldn't get enough of him! I actually met him and his parents 6 months ago randomly at a Thai/Vietnamese restaurant.  When I saw him, i just knew he was a fellow Taiwanese friend.
G made friends with a little boy.  It was so cute-they were playing "who can catch the football the fastest!"
K & M were mesmerized by the Dragon-i caught this picture of them staring up at him.  It was funny to see since K was originally frightened by him.

Who says we're cranky when we wake up from naps???

This was K when she woke up from her nap today-having a jolly good time in her crib! Surprisingly, it was a shorter than normal nap!
Oh! And if you're wondering if we're moving her to a big bed anytime soon . . . you're sorely mistaken! After 3 kids, i'm all for staying in the crib as longggg as possible.  I'm thinking Kindergarten? 
just kidding . . . sort of! :)
