Year of the Ox

Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Lily is ready to go out to eat with the other families in our area for our celebration! She enjoyed wearing Kenli's outfit that she wore when she was Lily's age. Thank you Kenli!
She was very excited about spending time with her new friends!
This is Keaira. Her parents go to church with us, and she is 4 years old.
Here is a picture of most of the girls together. It was almost like a red couch photo- we never could get them all together, looking the same way. There was another little girl there who was about Lily's age, and she kept walking out of the picture. The girls (left to right): Lily, another Lily, Kenli, Meg, Keaira, and Kate. Ellie Lu kept walking out of the picture.
After our Chinese dinner, the girls took over the restaurant, and they did some New Year's craft projects. The Chinese man who owned the restaurant was so sweet. Some of the parents apologized for taking over the restaurant, and he said, "I don't mind at all. I love seeing all of the girls together."
Lily had a great time. It took her about 30 minutes to warm up to people, like normal. But, then, she was walking around talking to everyone, blowing kisses, and showing her beautiful smile!
Thank you , Amy and Ira, for getting everyone together. We had such a wonderful evening!
If you want to see more pictures of the girls- go to Amy took a lot more pictures, and she got some with Ellie Lu in them. She is so cute! You should go see them!
