chinese new year celebration

Saturday night Macy and I had the opportunity to attend
an amazing Chinese New Year celebration,
put on by our metro Chinese community.

It was BIG and really great!!

Macy kept looking over at me during the show,
as if to make sure I was having a good time.

It was so sweet.

Almost everything was in Chinese so she would also
lean over and try to explain what was being said.

She knew most of the songs and sang along quietly.

She laughed hysterically at the comedian
(who was Caucasian, but spoke fluent Mandarin).
I'm still left in the dark over what was so stinkin' funny.
But it did my heart good to see my shy girl
in a full-out knee-splappin' chuckle!

The show ended with a mask-changing presentation.
If you aren't familiar with this ancient performance,
I'm not sure how to explain it
but trust me,
I was sitting there in true amazement.

But Macy told me she would explain how it was done later.
And she did.
And I was a tad disappointed to know how it's done.
She thought that was funny.

Anyway,
I'd show you my array of pics of the very special day but....
my camera that I had been sure to put in
my purse DIDN'T contain the battery that I was SURE
to put on the charger for this big event.

UGH.

My mom let me borrow her little camera but it
just didn't cut the mustard.

I'm hoping that the website of the Chinese community association
we belong to will post pics.



**Hey Leah, how about next year you plan to come to the show
with Abbey and we'll all go together!
We can go to dinner first and maybe squeeze in some shopping!
The girls would have a blast!

I am so glad that you and Macy had an awesome time. Maybe next year we'll be that direction, not many CNY celebrations where we are (besides our little one:)
Blessings,
