In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

...Late Valentines/Chinese New Year/Mardi Gras Break (if you're a local)!!!!

Eloise spent Saturday collecting little red envelopes from her relatives. It is customary for all married adults to give money to any unmarried person who enters their home on Chinese New Year.

This year we decided to do without the cards and chocolates.
Saturday evening I bought the above flowers to make our table a little more festive.
Hubby and I cooked a delicious meal and we had a family Valentine's Dinner.

Today we will be headed to the park for our church's annual Mardi Gras Day
family Picnic. The adults will BBQ and play table games while the children run around like little crazy people burning all their extra energy.

Whoever you are....
No matter where you are...
have a Happy Day!
