Chinese customs-

Monday, March 10, 2014

These 2 little "chillens""--came out to see Gramma and Ba-Ha (himself)- yesterday.
It's a Chinese thing----Grandchildren visiting the Grandparents on Sunday.
When I first met Himself , and we visited Jamaica, where he is from, on Sunday, cars and cars would pull into the compound, and every window of every car had a zillion little heads hanging out the windows. They all came to visit Apo, Himself's Mom.
Of course they all stayed for whatever meal it was time for--
Chinese families don't leave their children at home-ever! There are no babysitters-- It is just expected that the children will be brought to an event----

So----the clocks sprang ahead yesterday----It will be nice to see more daylight after supper. Maybe a walk outside, could get in----
To-day is son#3's , the Policeman's, Birthday and there is a celebration at his house for supper--Food is a big thing in Chinese families (unless you didn't already know that!)-Chinese people take pictures of food---LOL--

Tess the resident German (as in dog)-ended up having a good day yesterday--I think the good Lord smiled down at her---(Sparkly people 's prayers are working)
So-----time to jiggle the washing--get to the Dreadmill----and get into the Spark mindset!

    Those family traditions shared were followed in our non-Chinese family, also.

    Wishing #3 Son a most enjoyable birthday! emoticon

    We will be celebrating my treasured MrV's birthday come Wednesday --- I do enjoy birthdays --- no matter whose they are! emoticon

    God bless!

    Beautiful children!!!!! And a Very emoticon to your son!!!

    My daughter also comes quite often to supper with her 3 kids and it tends to get quite lively. My dog Shadow is crazy over the youngest.

    So so glad Tess had a good day. Prayers that she has only good days and gets rid of these spores for good.

    Definitely a emoticon to honorable son #3 --- a fellow Pisces too! Yup! We're good peeps!

    Your grandchildren just seem to get cuter with each picture! Adorable!!

    I cannot believe, the sun is out here and it will reach at least the mid 40's F today. Wahoo! Maybe there's hope for spring yet!

    HUGS and glad Tess had a good day too. Awesome and prayers continue! She's had to fight so hard!

    What precious children!!

    I grew up in a rural setting with one pair of grandparents next door so got to see all my first cousins on a regular basis. Other pair of grandparents lived 3 miles down the road and we had Sunday lunch there and then spent afternoons visiting with relatives who showed up or going to other relatives' homes. Air conditioning and repeal of Blue Laws (no stores open on Sunday) and passing of grandparents put an end to some wonderful times.

    Have a great Monday.

    I absolutely LOVE Chinese customs! Including and teaching children is so important! How else will they learn? Today so many children learn from watching their "babysitter" television! THAT is why there are so many problems with them!

    So happy Tess had a good day and of course God is smiling down on both her and you!

    Have a blessed Monday, Lynda, it is going to 50F here! I can't WAIT!

    Happy Birthday to son #3! I am glad Tess felt better yesterday! Thanks for your prayers for my mom, too. Weather is warmer today, finally. But it is going to snow again tomorrow night and Wednesday! Is there no end to winter?
    Have a great day! emoticon

    What a lovely custom!! And how wonderful that you have a house full of children on Sundays!!! There is something so magical about children's laughter and I bet that is all they do with Gramma and Ba-Ha!!!

    So glad to hear that Tess had a good day!! And I bet her mommy did too!!

    emoticon to son #3. A Pisces like me!!

    Have fun today with the warmer temps!! It is warmer here too at least for a few days so enjoying them while they are here!!
