Sicknesses and birthday parties

I'm terrible about updating my blog! Time goes by so quickly anymore and I just don't leave time to blog.

Anyway, Lilli did not get to attend her Valentine's Day party. Her daycare called us to come and pick her up because she had a temperature. Turns out that she had another double ear infection plus pink eye. This poor kid can't catch a break. We were able to celebrate CNY and my food items were scrumptious! The steamed buns and bean paste were incredibly time-consuming, but it was worth it. My family really enjoyed trying some new Chinese food.

We are busy preparing to Lilli's birthday party. It is in less than two weeks. Of course, being on St. Patrick's Day, the theme is going to be green. I spent the day Saturday searching for just the right invitations and decorations. As usual the best invitations are the homemade kind and that is what I will be sending out. I've also decided that I am going to make the adults play games. We are going to play "Pin the Hat on the Leprechaun" and Hot Potato. This should be interesting. I hope the weather is nice enough for some of the guests to go outside--you just never know what it is going to be like in March here.

We are having Lilli's 2-year picture taken on Saturday. I am excited about that. We are having her picture taken in traditional Chinese dress, a Colts cheerleading outfit and then something casual. I'm not sure what just yet. I have some really nice dresses for her but she throws an absolute fit when I put her in a dress. I've placed the two dresses I would like for her to wear in her room hoping that she will want to try them on==so far she hasn't shown any interest in them.

Well, it is late and I must go.
