We were able to attend a wonderful Chinese New Year party thrown by a few local adoptive families this year.
It was a great time filled with Chinese food, crafts and singing and dancing by local language teachers.
We did learn that right now Olivia would prefer to keep Chinese New Year low key. She preferred not to wear her silks, did not like the Mandarin singing or dancing and when I suggested I throw a party in her class she ademently said, "no" and may have gone so far as to throw her Chinese New Year book across the room. I'm not sure what this all means at 3 but, we are following her lead. Thankfully her preschool party that I planned was snowed out.
