Weekend Reflections: Celebrating Chinese New Year
This week we celebrated Chinese New Year and welcomed the Year of the Snake. This year’s celebration was more sombre then last year. There wasn’t any fancy meal preparations for Chinese New Year eve dinner. We didn’t cater food or cook special delicacies for the reunion dinner. In fact we decided to cook something simple and have the dishes that the kids loved to eat instead.
This year Tiger girl didn’t just have one Chinese New Year Costume to wear. She had four!! She could have a new set of clothes for each day of visitation which we had.
She loved this costume as it was the most comfortable to run around in.
It is really fun dressing up a girl for a festive occasion. Do you like dressing up your kids too?
What has been on your mind this week? Join in this week in our Weekend Reflections linky below.

It is fun to dress your kids especially a girl. There are lots of beautiful dresses for girls that made them cute. We hope God will give us a cute baby girl too.

Tiger girl is so cute. I wish I have a girl too. Oh, if God will give us a baby girl, she will surely have so many crochet accessories from top to toe. Hehe.

My daughter still could fit into her CNY outfit from last year and that’s what she wore on the first day. Then on the other days, it was just easier to get her to wear a hand-me-down red CNY jacket from her brother. 🙂
