For New Years, I decided to host a dinner party. The hardest part of the party was deciding who to invite. We have enjoyed our new ward so much that there seems to be an endless supply of interesting and fun young couples to get to know.
I made mochi sticky cake.
Soy sauce eggs, lettuce wraps, peanut meat balls, red Chinese BBQ chicken legs, long life noodles, and everyone got an orange and a red pocket with lucky money (though, surprisingly, most of our guests didn't take their lucky money).
It was a great evening with good conversation and lots of laughing. It's been great having the finished basement because all of our kids just played their hearts out the entire evening and the adults got some much needed adult interaction! Chris, Beth, Ruth & Eric.
Chris, Beth, Ruth, Me, Matt, Crystal, Nick (and his wife April is missing from the picture).
The girls are getting such cute personalities
Here they are showing their glasses...we call this Lia Librarian and Cool Kiri.
The kiddos watching a movie...that's right, Max's slim bum still fits into his Bumbo chair...gotta love it!!!
Lia is so quick to smile and laugh!
Kiri has the sweetest, kindest disposition and always loves to be cuddled and will often pat you on your shoulder if you are cuddling with her.
