Another holiday...another decorated tree!

We're on a roll with our Chinese New Year decorations.  Tuesday night, Josie and I finished decorating our sunroom tree for the upcoming Chinese New Year. Thanks to our special friends from "let's go fly a kite", we have a few more special treasures to add to our tree this year.  Josie's holding a satin red lantern and a string of firecrackers.  

Here are a few more of my past favorites starting with Josie's baby shoes. 





In addition to the ornaments, a bunch of other goodies were sent to us from our Toronto friend "lets go fly a kite".  

The girls and I certainly appreciate their access to all these special wares. Aren't blogging friends great?!!

If you'd like to see beautiful pictures of an amazing Chinese mall, as well as see a wonderful CNY crafting activity that you can do with your little ones,  you really should go visit her blog right now.

XOXO

Those shoes are so precious. I can't imagine how you store and get all these goodies put up and back down again.
