The birthday girl.
With her dad, who dressed up in his old "Rickshaw Rally" VBS costume from SEVERAL years ago. The kids loved it!
My one decorated corner. I ordered Chinese food from the local restaurant and the kids loved it. We had chicken on a stick (Kay's favorite), white rice, sweet and sour chicken, and wantons. I even had fortune cookies, some from the restaurant and some I had ordered with Bible verses in them. Of course we had cheese dip too. Can't have a party without it, can you?
We made them eat with chopsticks, or at least try to, before handing them a fork or spoon.
We decorated our homemade cupcakes with umbrellas. Kayla made the chocolate ones and I made strawberry.
I didn't have time to make her cookie cake this year, so I just bought one from the store. Kevin wrote her name in Chinese on top.
I used take out boxes from the restaurant for my goody bags. We had a pinata and they filled the boxes up with candy. They played games with chopsticks and everyone got a hat to take home with them. They loved it because it was different.
This picture is for my family who says I never get in the pictures. I was tired by the end of the night, can you tell?
One of my gifts to Kayla was a necklace I found that said "Jesus loves you" in Chinese. She loved it and wore it to the party.
Well, here is hoping you all had a great weekend! We sure did! May we all have a beautiful week. And remember... Jesus does love you!!!!
