Weekend With Family~

To celebrate both my parents' BIRTHDAYS!
the whole clan headed to my mother's
favorite Chinese Restaurant in town.
~here are some snapshots 
taken from the evening:
My parents' faces are still being cropped-up in this blog!
so sorry...but as you know by now, this whole family 
is still under the witness protection program!! ~whahaha...
They're adorned with their birthday presents;
 'blink-blink' brooch for her & cuff links for him.
We all certainly can use more sparklesss...in our lives no? 
everyone at the table had such lousy chopstick skill!
(flying chopstick, not a pretty sight!)
'Long Chinese Noodle' dish was being served;
Chinese tradition/symbolism for loooooong healthy & prosperous life!
~Lovely & delicious sentiment, I'd say!
" Cheers to that! "
