Fletcher is....

...finally done with birthday celebrations!!!! What a relief for Jim and I. The party was great, everyone seemed to have fun. Fletcher loved the party. We went with the Kung Fu theme and celebrated Chinese New Year with homemade fortune cookies and traditional red money packets with chocolate coins. The fortune inside each cookie said, "Thank you for joining my party. No Shadow Kick tenfold. Love, Long"

I was up late the night before sewing his new black gee. Jim and I put together a koi fishing game and pin the tail on the dragon. My mom, Harvest and Grandmere pitched in on the food: spring rolls, sushi, wontons and the most amazing chocolate cake EVER.

One of his gifts was a rope from Maeven, Rita and Family. When we've been out to their farm, one of Fletcher's favorite activities is swinging on the rope swing. So, first thing he tried was putting one up with Jim. Unfortunately the only tree big enough to hold one at our house is too close the sliding glass door - imagine that for a moment! The other day we ended up at the park by Cuesta College and he put the rope to great use:
He has since used the rope tied to a basket for hauling toys up the stairs, spent two days with the rope tied around his waist (in case he needed it for anything, then attached it to his Evan day backpack!

Here is his gift from Seth and family, with many beautiful Chinese characters decorating the wrapping.

Maggy came dressed in her gee.
