Asian Night

It's tradition to have a "Girls Night Out" Saturday evenings during General Conference while the guys are at the Priesthood session. Katherine had a FANTASTIC idea to do and Asian themed party. We had it at our house.
Susannah and I went shopping at Earthbound Trading Company (one of my favorite stores) and found some lanterns to liven things up a bit.We had lots of friends come. Katherine's grandmother had a ton of Kimonos that she brought with her, so we all dressed up for the occasion.
Here I am in my kimono putting the finishing touches on the sweet and sour chicken.

She even had some of those cool wooden flip flops that are tall. I tried them on and loved the sound they made so I had to take a video of it. I'm weird.We had asked everyone to bring an Asian dish and we ended up with a ton of food with lots of variety. I made sweet and sour chicken, Susannah made beef tomato, and Jen made Mongolian beef. There were various other things too. It was all delicious!Here's a picture of my very full plate. I even accidentally tried some rice pasta and shrimp concoction that Katherine made. I will confess that I didn't know there was shrimp in it, but I LIKED IT! WOW!The weather was beautiful so we ate out on the back porch. It was a great time.Susannah and Kim had a go at some arm wrestling. They're trying to make Sumo faces. Abraham showed up for some food after he finished working.

I had to take some video of it. This was a very fun night. We finished things off with the movie "Anna and the King."

Susannah, you lasted much longer in the arm wrestle than Ryan would have. He would have been out in the first few seconds!

I died laughing about the animal crackers and then I thought, "that would make a good April Fools joke."
