Day 25, 01/25/2009, Chinese New Year

Today, we participated in a FCC Chinese New Year celebration. I love the girls in the silks. We had a good time until they did the firecrackers. The adult that was in charge of this part, decided to light them about a foot from Xiao Min. He gave no warning. She tried to get away, and stepped over the fireworks as the first ones started to fire. I was so upset at the lack of safety. She was hysterical and I think will never forget this. This person was an idiot.


  1. Oh my gosh, I would be steaming mad!! Poor kid!

    They do look beautiful in their silks!!Great photo

  2. Real fireworks???? That's crazy! We always did bubble wrap!

  3. Yikes! We've never done real firecrackers either. I'd be spitting mad. Lots of children are afraid of firecrackers, and to have them so close ... not safe at all. I hope your DD was too traumatized.
