Allie and Hannah's Valentine Playdate

The "sisters" Allie and Hannah got together for a playdate Thursday at Miss Lora and Allie's house. I couldn't believe it. It was -13F when we left the house at 9 AM! Brrr! When we arrived, Allie was already in her princess dress. Hannah gowned up, put on her heels, grabbed her wand, and she was ready play! The girls spent a lot of time running around, putting on lip gloss, and giggling while Lora and I enjoyed some tea and freshly baked Chinese pineapple buns. Yum yum! After lunch the girls made Valentines, played with dolls, and put together two puzzles.














Doesn't Allie have a smile that could light up a room?


During one part of our conversation, Lora and I were talking about how we referred to the girls as Taiwanese American when people asked if our girls are Chinese. Allie looked me right in the eye and said, "I'm Taiwanese American and I can do tricks!" followed by a somersault and some high kicks. I laughed so hard! Love that girl!

Allie gave us great smiles for the camera. On the other hand, my daughter did not. I told Lora that Hannah oftentimes refuses to look at the camera and smile, and will go out of her way to make photos difficult. That is... unless you promise CHOCOLATE. While making Valentines Hannah would not look at Lora and her camera... that is until Lora mentioned the word CHOCOLATE. Like a light switch, Hannah's smile turned on by the promise of one Hershey's chocolate kiss. What a stinker!


  1. I think it is so cool that your girls get together. How lucky for Hannah and Allie...and for you and Lora. The girls are adorable!

  2. Love the pictures! I can tell they had a great time! I'm a little jealous you got the pineapple buns ; )

  3. Such beautiful pictures of the Taiwan princesses. What a great way to spend Valentine's Day.

    Hannah is just like Lexie. She's all smiles until the dreaded camera comes out and then she'll look everywhere except at the camera. Only M&M's will get her to smile.
