Chinese New Year Celebration

Yesterday we went with some friends to Lexington to begin our Chinese New Year celebrations. We met for for dinner at PF Changs, YUM!  After dinner we went to the Singletary Center for KCAA's Chinese New Year Celebration.  It was a wonderful evening.  Unfortunately I left the camera at home, so sadly I only had my cell phone to capture the night.   Here are some highlights.

We had about an hour and a half to wait until the performance began.  We found a little corner to hang out for a while.  The kids...
...shared a snack...

...they hopped...

...they even watched a movie for a while.

Finally the doors opened and we could enter the auditorium.
In our seats waiting for the show to start.
After many speakers thanking everyone for their help putting on this performance we finally got to the good stuff.  The night began with the Dragon Dance.  It was the perfect way to start for our little group.  The dragon grabbed their attention and we settled in to enjoy the show.

The Dragon Dance
Yeah, Mama!
Nugget was so cute when he clapped for the performance.
Even Baby L clapped and enjoyed the dancers!
The Yellow River Piano Concerto was beautiful!

I LOVED watching the boys.  Too cute!

Such a beautiful moment.
There were several more performances that we enjoyed, but Nugget started getting antsy. We stayed for a while longer, but left before the night was over. Nugget was really good, especially this being his first time in a theater of any sort, and it was late.  It was a perfect way to kick off our Chinese New Year celebrations!
