Happy Valentines Day!

This Valentine we made heart shaped trinkets or charms made out of *aqua-beads*.  These were a lot of fun to do and because we had to make 23 of them, we started making them early last month. Kylie soon got tired of making nothing but hearts so I ended up making a few of them myself a few times after she went to bed.  This past weekend, we started working on the cards and placing everything together in a small clear bag.  She was so excited about giving these out and trying to sort it by her friend's favorite color. Kylie loves all things crafty and she was thrilled when she got to use my crafting tools which are usually off limits, to finish off her project.

Valentine's Day - off to school.

 Our good friend and neighbor Hannah also rides to school bus.

 Kylie came home with all of these goodies from her classmates.

My favorite people

Chinese New Year store display. I love all of the lantern decorations this time of year.
Year of the Rabbit

One of my favorite foods to eat. *Tori-Q* japanese satay - bacon wrapped asparagus-our favorite!
The "Lion*Dancers" method of transportation.

Chopstick skills

I've been impressed with Kylie's chopstick skills for quite some time now and I just realized I've never blogged about it. So after lunch at our favorite local teppan yaki place today, I decided that it may be fun to have her play with chopsticks and marshmallows while I take photos to document the event. The result are these pictures that I think are so darn cute! We haven't spent too much time teaching her how to use them, she just sort of watched and followed her Daddy. Now she is independently using them like a little pro on her own. I'm so proud:-)
