Lisa, Melissa, Michelle & Me!
On Saturday, my friends and I cooked up a feast to celebrate Chinese New Year. This is our 3rd year doing this and we are getting really good! Paige's mommy Lisa, hosted this years bash (thanks Lis!); and her home looked so festive with New Years banners and lanterns. She even had dragon fans for the kids to color!

Paige is such a social, cutie-pie, she put her arms up to my hubby and wanted to be held :)

Look at this sweetie-pie!!

The girls!

Mia loved riding this ladybug around and around

The dinner - ALL homemade!
We had shrimp bok choy, orange beef, sesame chicken & ham fried rice
As Lisa plainly stated, "not bad for a bunch of white women!" :)

Mia & Mommy with our lantern cakes
(which I found on nickjr! They had a nice CNY section with recipes, crafts, etc!)

Mia & Meg enjoying dessert!
That is Lisa's Taiwanese dessert to the left - yummy!!

We really enjoyed our evening with this special group of friends. It still amazes me that we don't have to go far at all to find friends who share such a special bond. We are truly blessed ~
