Chinese New Year Party

> After I Get Used to Everything MAYBE You Can Put Me Down.
Ok- This Might Be Fun

Wow- A Big Lion!!!

Got My Red Envelope Ready to Feed the Lion

Wow! He Ate It!

That Was Fun- Now I am Exhausted. But Look at my Pretty Butterfly.

On February 3rd we went to the Families with Children From China, Maryland Branch (FCC) Chinese New Year Party. It was a blast (once Langley warmed up). She loved all the acrobats and Chinese Opera, Kung Foo, and Lion Dance. Anything that was onstage she loved- ah- little theatre girl in training. Most of our travel group was there and we met a bunch of great people. Langley was so tired at the end she fell asleep before we got to the interstate.

About the Lion Dance- you feed him red envelopes (supposedly filled with money- but ours was empty) and later he throws up- some kind of vegetable- think they used lettuce. If you get hit by the "throw up" I think its good luck. Anyway for the past two weeks Langley has been going around saying, "Lion- Mess." And we know exactly what she is talking about. Its hysterical. She has also taken her stuffed Lion with her many, many places.
