Year of the Dragon: Dancing the Night Away

This is the last part in our series of Chinese New Year 2012 posts. Have you been enjoying them? (Fireworks; Dumplings; Our Little Dragons; New Year Kisses; Celebrating in South China; Festival Drums)

Dancing is a beautiful and exciting part of the New Year festivities. The nannies love to dance. In fact, our nannies are often waltzing with the babies as they practice their steps. Cora picked up her feet and danced a jig during the party last week. She looks like she's having fun, doesn't she?

Have you ever been at an event, where some random kids run onto the central floor, in front of everybody, totally lost in their own play-world? Noah and Timothy were 'those kids'. In between acts, right as the music was about to begin again, they came running in, playing ping-pong together with an escaped balloon.

And then there was Kendra and her foster mom. We love this picture, and the joy that is in both of their faces as they go a-whirling and spinning across the dance floor.

We hope that you have had a wonderful Chinese New Year. Oh, and the anwer to Tuesday's inquiry: How many dumplings can Samuel (age two) eat? 18


  1. Samuel ate 18 dumplings!? I'm impressed.

  2. Next year Cora will have a Chinese New Year dancing partner ready to do a jig with her! :)
