We are looking forward to the Olympic Opening Ceremony tonight! Steve and I decided that we will let the girls stay up for some of it, maybe in their sleeping bags.
I have planned a Chinese dinner in honour of Beijing:
Chicken & Cashew Nuts
Chocolate Spiders (ok they are not Chinese but are made of fried noodles - and melted chocolate and peanut butter!)
(the girls will probably only like the spiders)
While the girls were at school today I made paper placemats in Publisher and after the girls finish watching Mr Men (any minute now) we will make a Chinese-looking box to hold the Chocolate Spiders and other treats.
We haven't told them they can stay up yet, it will be a surprise in a few minutes! Gotta love surprises, especially when they provide activities for a Friday afternoon! The ceremony will start at 10.08pm here, so it will be a late night, but tomorrow is a very quiet day for a change, so hopefully we can manage it!
When I checked in at Hill Upon Hill I saw that they have a similar plan. Great minds think alike.
