How They Look

Tomorrow is Chinese New Year~
the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays.
Each year we decorate
and celebrate the culture of our girls' birth country.

EK was very excited to help make
beautiful lanterns
to hang around our house.
SJ was happy to play with them. :)
As we went back to our rooms
to dress and make beds,
the light in my bedroom was amazing.
I had a brainstorm to dress the girls
in their Chinese silks
for a CNY photo shoot.
I'll let you decide if it was success~
I definitely think so!!!

This is 'How they Look'~
precious Chinese girls celebrating
their Chinese culture.



I am linking up with Joy of Love~ Day 2.
