Thanksgiving

Yesterday, Kida’s class celebrated Thanksgiving by dressing up as Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians, having a big feast, and playing some games.  In the photo, the student who stood the longest on one leg wins.  Kida (that’s her feet in the front) didn’t win but she held on for a very long time.

This Thanksgiving, the family will be spending it with the extended family as we do almost every year with lots of food and laughter.

I hope you and your family will enjoy this day together.

Thanksgiving Birthday And The HNY

We usually celebrate my sister’s birthday when we gather for Thanksgiving dinner at my parent’s place.

How time flies. 

I remember when we were only kids.  Innocent.  Free spirited.  Full of happiness.  I also remember the fights and the VHS music video we created.  My sister sang to “All Cried Out” by Lisa Lisa and the Cult Jam.  She even dressed herself in one half girl and the other half a guy with a five o’clock shadow.  I’d love to see that again!!   Anyway, I created a cute card for my sister.  You can see it, here.

Not sure what my dad was doing here…talking, but what about? I don’t know.  Kylie and Logan as always are stuck together like glue and going for the cake.

Hmong New Year

The Colorado Hmong New Year Festival was slow again this year.  Everything reminded me of the one last year except for the Miss Hmong Colorado Competition.  That’s a whole other story though.  I left annoyed.

In the vending area, there was really nothing new offered.  This was the only clothes rack.

And these were pretty  much the hats.

The HNY in Colorado is dying.
