Cultural Night: China
You can clearly see I haven't nailed the ability to turn the photos in blogger! So please mail me all the bills for your chiropracter from your neck damage! Each month or two we are having the kids pick out a culture that we read books about, research a little, learn phrases from, and try to visit something from that culture as well. We also try to have a meal from the location, which stretches my culinary skills to the brink. So this month was CHINA. WHich worked out well because Daddy was traveling there. It was SOOO much fun. The kids loved the Asian grocery store, and the bubble tea. (In case you don't know bubble tea has little tapioca "bubbles" in it that come up the straw with the tea. The kids loved that. They have also decided that they really really like drinking hot tea. Which has been great, because it makes it so easy to give them really healthy green tea.
You can't see it in this picture, but John's outfit has this little yarn braid that runs down from his hat. It makes him look like the last emporer. He isn't arguing with the title either.
We had our good friends the Ridge's over for dinner. They are just the most fun!!! The kids were so excited and everyone had a good time, well, except at the end of the evening. Emma's teeth made contact with John's head when they were playing sailboat on the couch. Unfortunately, this pushed her two front teeth back into her mouth. That wasn't fun, it involved alot of screaming and blood. It was also a very sweet moment though. Her friend Noah held her hand to make her feel better and her brother was very worried too and rubbed her back. Then Brian and I told her about the tooth fairy. and at first she wanted money, but then she asked if the tooth fairy would bring her another baby brother
Ms Toothfairy, if you are reading this, she did NOT mean that!!! We are all full up on babies over here
