The Three Muskateers

We had a playdate today with Lauren's best bud Noah and his new little brother Jeremiah. Jeremiah has been home a few weeks now from Taiwan and is the prettiest little boy I have ever seen. :)

Lauren's Imagination

Apparently we have crocodiles in our living room, green and yellow ones. her imagination has just soared lately, the other day she was in the tub and all of a sudden said "I need to get out, I need to get out", I thought she had had an accident in the tub but apparently there was a crab in the tub and he was after her. :) Please excuse my coughing and voice as i have bronchitis still.

Lauren and Jake

We haven't had Jake a month yet
but he is Lauren's dog already,
she can pull his tail like in the
picture below and he could care less.
She also will grab his mouth and open it
and tell him to " say ahhh"
he never nips or gets annoyed with her
he just wags happily :) I tell
you he has been a great
asset for us, he starts
"doggy school" in March
so hopefully it helps him
become an even better dog. Pulling on Jake
Getting Doggy Kisses

The Princess and Her Purse

Lauren wanted a purse to carry like
Mommy so when we went to the store we
let her pick one out and surprisingly she didn't pick Dora, it's a
princess purse. Here she is showing it off.
Lauren's friend Annslee has this shirt also, thanks for telling us where to find it. It's daddy's favorite. Big shock, I know.
Look at how grown up she is holding it on her shoulder
This is a mid air jump of purse excitement
* I got my new battery so I am back in picture taking heaven:) Also, Congratulations cousin Heather who has been accepted to the University of Florida, way to go....

Happy Valentine's Day

Sorry no pictures but my camera battery is dead and my new one hasn't come in yet. Lauren was excited to get her bag of goodies this year. She got a new Dora book, Dora candy and a big flower balloon from daddy and mommy. Mommy got flowers. This was the first year she picked something out for daddy and she got him a football filled with chocolate, we also got him his favorite movie on dvd " National Lampoons Christmas Vacation" and yes I know it's not Christmas but Steve loves this movie and has been watching it on vhs for years so he needed an upgrade :) we are going to Chili's for dinner tomorrow night so we stayed home tonight :)

Hope everyone had a great day and I hope to have a camera battery soon. :)

Save the Drama For Your Mama

How can someone this cute
be so dramatic, some days
I feel as though I am in a really
bad soap opera. 2 was a
breeze compared to 3. :)

CNY at the Chinese Community Center

This was a very cool event
and it was packed full
of people, it's at Chinatown
in the Dunwoody area.
We were buying paper
cuttings to frame for Lauren's
room and the lady asked me
where Lauren was from
I told her Hubei and she
said "ooh hard headed and
also Americanized, you have
lots of work ahead". HA
The Lion dance
The Dragon dance
Lauren not impressed with meeting the Dragon
A Chinese garden
Her loot, the rat lights up, she picked out all of it.
The lady was selling the paper cuttings for $1.00 each,
look at the detail on it. this is the colored one we also got b/w
cranes to represent Hubei ( yellow cranes)

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Our celebration tonight was
short lived as Lauren
didn't nap today so she was
ready for bed before 7:30,
she also refused to eat anything
except peanut butter on a spoon.
she's a Hubei chick, what else can I say ?

This Saturday is the New Years Event at the Chinese Community Center in Atlanta so I'll take lots of pictures of the celebration and share those.
