Celebrations and Holidays : part two

Lois's Birthday Afternoon Tea : Sunday April 22

Cherie prepared a beautiful afternoon tea for many of her friends with babies to celebrate Lois's birthday on the Sunday afternoon before. It had a teddy bear theme which was very cute. Lois really loves teddy bears.

Beautiful food prepared by Cherie.... an outstanding achievement as it was a first for her, on this scale, in a more "western" style.

It is a Korean traditional for a girl turning one to be dressed in a Hanbok for the celebrations. Lois received two beautiful hanboks! One from Cherie's friend in Canberra and one from Cherie's brother and sister-in-law in Korea.
Lois is walking! She was the centre of attention when she walked a half a dozen steps at her birthday party! Since then she has become more confident and likes to walk everywhere possible. Up until then she had had plenty of turns walking endlessly, hand-in-hand , with each of us, both inside and outside the house. She still enjoys these walks but is now walking on her own more often.

 On her actual birthday ( April 26) we had a family dinner together.

Lois is ONE today!

Uncle Cameron bought Lois an indoor slippery dip and swing for her birthday. She gives it a try.

Richard and I minded Lois and got her to sleep for the first time, while Stuart and Cherie went out to dinner for their anniversary.

Stuart, Richard and I sang in the Men's Choir at the ANZAC day dawn service at the National War Memorial. It was a good opportunity for Stuart to experience singing at the dawn service. Yes, I also sang with the Men's Choir! They smuggled me in and I sang tenor. It was dark so no one noticed . It was great because I had a good view of proceedings! We had to be there a 5am. It was pretty cold but we were all rugged up.
