The little pink outfit ripped from stem to stern today (our girls are kind of rough) and we had to do a last-minute wardrobe substitution for the Chinese New Year's dinner. Ro was pretty upset at first (the girl really does like her pink) but rallied quickly when she tried on the beautiful red dress: "Ooooo, I yook yike a princess, mama!" Yes you do baby. And little Ree was amenable to anything as long as she got to wear her sparkly red shoes. I think she looks awesome in jewel blue.
I don't know why Ree's ponytail is sticking up, by the way, while Ro's is lying flat. They had the same hairdresser for goodness sake. Also, if their mama had any pride, she would have either picked up an iron or photoshopped out the fold marks in their dresses. Sigh...
Everyone got to pick a fave dish at dinner. Ro ordered three-flavor sizzling rice soup then squealed with delight when it came with shrimp and scallops. Ree ordered lettuce wraps, then folded hers expertly (and a bit smugly) and sucked it down.
After we got back home, the girls shucked off their shoes and curled up with the latest Oriental Trading Company catalog. They love that catalog. LOVE. Every page is meticulously inspected, each item evaluated and exclaimed over, and favorites are chosen and hotly contested. Over and over and over until the thing falls apart and we secretly throw it in the garbage and hope they forget about it until the next one comes in the mail.
