What a great tradition. I love the lanterns! The kids and I went to our favorite local Chinese restaurant on Friday night while their dad had to work and we enjoyed it so much. I rarely make stir fry at home any more, not when we go there almost every week! It's not a whole lot more expensive than if we made it at home. Moments like this at home have been rare for us lately, it seems like we've just been running and running. I'm going to make dinners a priority this week, instead of an after-thought!

Dinner is just such a critical time for us--even if L. just eats a bowl of cereal (which he often does) just having him sit there for a few minutes with us is important. It's tough, I know, to make it work every night, but it's the one tradition we insist on!
