Happy CNY Year of the Tiger!

We didn't go to our usual Chinese New Year celebration this year because our host had other plans. We did go to a smaller gathering though this past Saturday thanks to a last minute invite :) It was a small group. Just 3 other families. These families are all from the same agency (not mine) so they get together every year. The Mom that organised it works at my hospital. She brought crafts and party favors including noise makers to ring in the Year of the Tiger loudly. Abby was the youngest little girl there. She had a good time being one of the girls and enjoyed the extra attention as the older girls doted on her :) Really not in the mood to pose Mom!

Unless of course it's with my Da :)

Making crafts with the girls. They decorated fans and made fancy dragons on a stick.

Taking a quick desert break :)

Good Times :)
I loved watching her with the older girls :)

Sunday getting ready to open her CNY gift from Mommy :)

She got a musical ensemble packed in a drum along with a red envelope containing money and some chocolate gold coins and some candy. Happy CNY my sweet Abba! Mommy loves YOU :)

And more SNOW!

Crazy weather. Tuesday morning they were calling for a few flurry's. Just as Abby and I were leaving to head to work and school it started snowing. It was really windy as well. We took a little video before we left. ( In it you will see some of the snow left over from last weekends storm) As we drove to work/ school the snow became heavy and the winds really picked up. We were driving in literally whiteout conditions. It was really bazaar. We got about an inch before it stopped a few hrs later but the winds kept on. By the time we got back to My Moms on Tuesday night they were howling with 50 mile an hr gusts at times. Luckily no more snow (that day anyway). My Grandmother used to always say when ever snow hangs around it's waiting for more....Believe it or not snow is in the forecast again for Saturday and Monday. Poor Abby! She told me on the way in that day that she likes spring best :)

Winter is SNOW much fun!

We get good snow about every 10 years or so. Looks like this was our year! We had 2 storms 1 week apart. Both on a weekend. Good times :) Abby really liked it and did really well. We are waiting to see what this weekend brings.......

Wouldn't the Chinese clothes police be proud :)
