February.. A short month with A LOT going on!
We kicked off last week celebrating the Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year.
We had dinner at a local restaurant where we rang in the new year- the year of the monkey- with family and watched the lion dance! Lia caught the orange that the lion threw, that means luck and riches for the new year!
Rubbing Buddha's belly for luck
Eating noodles for a long life
Watching the show
And catching the orange
Meeting the lions
We celebrated Jim's birthday with a dinner and cake at home. And we forgot to take pictures of any of it! But I just love this picture of the two of them talking at dinner ...
We had a follow up ENT appointment due to another "cold" and possible sinus infection.
Followed by a CT scan on Friday.
The before ....
... And the after
We opted for a sedated CT scan. There was no way she could hold that still for 15 minuets and be strapped in. It was rough on her walking up from the anesthesia - for a while she was seeing double. It's so tough watching her go through this kind of stuff, I'm not sure it's ever going to get easier but we thank God we live where we do and have access to such great medical care.
We came home after the scan and had Wendy's fries and a frosty and Oma and Opa sent a special flower delivery!
We've been resting and laying low the rest of the weekend.
And that brings us to today
Happy Valentine's Day
