Sunday Snapshot

An impromptu Chinese New Year Celebration and photo shoot. We were too sick to go to our local CNY celebration, so the Captain picked up Chinese food (four orders of dumplings - we really need to learn how to make these ourselves!!) and we had a feast at home. So Mr. A could crash on the couch in between bites (fever 101F), and Missy could go to bed early (migraine). Mr. D and Little Miss felt fine - as I'm sure you can tell from the photos. Mr. T - our sports fanatic - got to go to a SuperBowl Party. Go Red Sox ;-)

  1. Love the pics!! Loved the phone call even more. <3

    Wow, what a crew you have. All over the place, lol! T still gone? Less than 10 minutes of the game left - not sure how long it'll take - 30 mins?

    Happy Chinese New Year, couple days late!

    Love the new look!!!

  2. Aaawwww. Thanks for sharing. So so cute.

  3. Absolutely beautiful!! May I ask where the dress is from? I keep saying I'm going to make some, but have yet to do it.

  4. Looks like you had agreat fun. We live a ways from Chinese food places so I tried my hand at making dumplings the other night- they turned out ok!
    Book is on it's way- we haven't had internet for several days so I am way behind borrowing someone else tonight:)

  5. Saina, the Captain is leaving right now to pick up T. I think the others are asleep already, lol.

    Thank you, Rebecca!

    One Acre Follies, I found the dress last year online, I'm pretty sure it's from April Cornell. Missy has a matching one, but didn't feel like dressing up today. I think we'll do another photoshoot sometime with the two of them in broad daylight. I hope Callie feels better soon!

  6. Thank you so much, quilt-n-mama! I'll let you know when the book comes.
    I hope you get your internet back soon (what a pain)!
    We have a great Chinese place nearby, but it's soooo expensive, especially now that my tween boys eat more than us adults!! I definitely want to try making the dumplings ourselves.

  7. Beautiful photos! Your daughter is adorable in her CNY photoshoot.

  8. An impromptu CNY celebration is just as good as a big party in my book!
    And our second go at the dumplings this weekend were much better. Two major improvements? Used 80/20 blend ground pork and chopped the veggie part of the filling in the food processor!
    give them a try!
    Hope everyone is feeling better soon.

  9. Thank you, Monica! We think so too :)

    Ooh, that sounds good, Kristi! Can't wait to get over our colds and try making them!

  10. I totally agree... bring on the Red Sox! Your little girl is very sweet! Great pictures!

  12. O F F, I wouldn't have even known about the SuperBowl unless my son had been invited to a party. We are so non-sporty it's embarrassing!!

    Ellen, thank you so much!! My first award!
