P had talked to a police officer who told him that the parade would reach our area around 7:30 p.m. We are so glad we did not heed his advice, or we would have missed quite a bit. It reached our area around 5:45 p.m. Maybe the officer was thinking about the end. P messed with the nighttime pictures, using our desktop monitor, tweaked with the brightness and contrast, and now we have more pictures than anyone will care to see.
SS perusing through one of her many Pe@nuts coloring books (thanks JJ). See the Snoopy bag next to SS? P bought it when I was in the hospital and I had forgotten all about it. When it was time to get SS's entertainment stuff ready I found it in the closet. Check out how nicely it compliments the blanket I made for her.
One can't just sit and watch a CNY parade, one must ward off evil spirits with firecrackers. P is such a good Baba and immediately purchased "snap clappers" for SS to throw at the people below us. Sunshine also bought SS a box of the giant type, and here is SS after dropping one. It landed next to a woman below us, and the sound startled her. She was not amused, but as you can see P got a kick out of it. This one is going to be good for reminiscing during those nights our little vandal will spend in juvenile hall. P also purchased extra snap clappers for SS's and JJ's birthdays.
