I'm a bit behind on my recap of the annual Chinese New Year Fundraiser with the Redwood Empire Chinese Association (RECA). (It was 2 weeks ago, I think? I swear there is just not enough room in my brain sometimes.) This is one of my favorite events of the year. I sell books and donate a portion of the profits back to RECA.
I've taken my little nugget the for past few years, but this was the first year she was old enough to enjoy it.(And she even agreed to wear a DRESS, which is about as usual a winning the lottery in our house.) Here she is, helping Mommy sell books. (I am a very proud mama!)
One of the high points of the evening was the dragon dance. My nugget went absolutely NUTS as the dragon dancers raced around the room. When the finished, she frantically signed "more! more!" and went out into the hallway trying to find them.
Oh, and I managed to sell a tidy amount of books, too! But I think you can tell the highlight of the evening was sharing the excitement with my daughter.
