I am finally getting around to uploading these pictures. I am really missing having my own computer. Did I mention that it has been in the shop for three weeks?!
Last Sunday, all six of us went to the Japanese New Year's Celebration. The kids really enjoyed it last year and they are doing an Asia unit right now, so it fit right in. ;)
They went straight to the First Calligraphy of the Year table...
Caroline is writing her name in Japanese next to "Heart".
Joseph is writing "Dream"
Then it was over to the Origami table. Libby made a paper balloon.
Caroline made a bunny's head
Joseph made a dog
We stood in line to get Mochi...which Joseph STILL loves and asked again this year where you can buy it.
Then we went out to see the Mochi pounding demonstration and get a taste of some "fresh" mochi.
Watching the demonstration
They gave Caroline a HUGE blob of Mochi. It was very difficult to wash off. :p
Playing a game
Joseph and entourage ;) We know the other two boys from Dallas Area Moms.
