Happy Chinese New Year!

Cara was beyond excited for Chinese New Year today.  She got to dress up in her Chinese silks for preschool and have her hair in "China buns."  That by itself would be fabulous, but she also got to bring red envelopes, fortune cookies, Chinese toys, color pages, and a big red dragon to her class today.  I think she looks unbelievably gorgeous in her dress.

She also got to have her fingernails painted gold glitter.  She was thrilled!  For dinner we went out for Chinese food.  When we got to the restaurant, the waitress asked her what she wanted to eat, and Cara said, "Mac 'n cheese."  So funny!  I went back to the kitchen a few minutes later to order more appetizers and the waitress was telling the other staff in the kitchen that Cara wanted mac 'n cheese. ;)

Cara's flirty face. ;)  She was making this same face in one of the update pictures the SWI sent us when we were waiting for TA.  We knew she would be a pistol when we saw this face in that picture.
She had a wonderful day.  I'm so glad we were able to make it special for her.  Happy New Year!
