A busy few days. K2’s birthday, the girls’ birthday, the girls’ birthday party… we had a lot going on.

Our seven year olds decided to have a costume party – which makes sense a few days after Halloween, I guess. Of course, at the very last minute they decided to change the rules: one of their birthday gifts were Mulan dress-up clothes. And instead of going in their Halloween costumes they decided to go as Mulan instead. Works for me.

MulanS and MulanHMulanS and MulanH

We had only 18 guests which kept things manageable and still had a ton of fun. The party was hosted at the local community center with the first hour in the gym (with a space ship bouncing house) and then in a multi purpose room for cake, ice cream, gifts and games.

Of course every one was concerned how H2 would be holding up with her broken ankle. I have to pictures to answer that question:

too fast for menot slowing her down

But my favorite moment came Saturday morning, when they opened their mail and H2 found a letter from the WWF that a donation had been made in her name for a symbolic adoption of a giant panda in Yangtze province in China. She was a bit confused what that meant (“is the panda going to live with us?”) so we explained that this meant that she was helping to feed a panda and more importantly to keep the place the panda was living intact and healthy. H2 thought about that and then she said “I’m helping a panda? Oh wow. I’m just a little kid!”. And then she was hopping around in excitement about the panda adoption.

    No, even a cast can’t stop H2 :-) Wow to the girls and to the present of adopting a Panda ! That’s a great idea.
