We recently had the opportunity to attend two very fun events.  The first event was the Daraja Children's Choir concert.  The group is from Uganda and their music was really fantastic.  The girls loved it!

The second show was the Shanghai circus.
As some of you know, our town is on the small side and we don't usually have the opportunity to see large shows.  This was really a treat!  Dumpling has decided that she can indeed perform all of the 'acts' in the circus :)

Dumpling was so excited that we could finally do 'braids'!

We were blessed with 8-10 inches of snow in North Alabama!  The kids sure did enjoy some fun times with this unusual treat.

8 inches wow!

Chinese New Year celebrations continue........

We had fun reading about Chinese New Year, making lanterns, and practicing our chopstick skills.  The children were delightful and really enjoyed learning about the holiday.  The Princess was so proud to share with her friends.
