Valentines, Star of the week and Ben

Jadyn loved Valentines day.
The party at school left such an impression we are still hearing about this week.
She enjoys school so much, even the part about learning! ha

Posing means "stick out your tummy"

This week Jadyn is the Star Student, which means you get to sit in the teachers chair
and tell the class about a favorite stuffed animal you brought to school that day.
 Several pictures of you and your family are put on the wall for the week.
And the best part, according to Jadyn, is getting to have ice cream with the principal!

An update on our puppy, who is almost 6 months old already!

Ben is a wild beast, he's needy, full of energy and love.
He's the best!
You will almost always see this blanket with him, he's attached to it like a little kid!
an unusual sight, a NAP!

Lastly, Celebration #3

Wow, what a busy Chinese festivities filled weekend! We decided to take Jadyn to our local Chinese/American Chapter. There were so many people there we ended up on the balcony. Too far from the stage for her to really enjoy any of the program. We stayed for an hour or so then headed to Dairy Queen for a treat. The program was 90% in Chinese so we sat there pretty lost!

Celebration #2

Our second Chinese New Year celebration was local in our town, a much smaller group. Jadyn enjoyed all the craft projects they had for the kids. Also the yummy Chinese food.

loved making her necklace

Chinese New Year Celebration #1

This was our second year attending
"Families with Children from China" (FCC) New Years celebration. We had a great time. Thank you Auntie for coming and also for winning us a discount on our Chinese camp-out later this year!

We have another celebration to attend this Friday!
Happy year of the snake!
