This photo of Hershey posing next to the pussy willows was taken during the Chinese New Year period last year. The oriental vase was a gift from dad's parents when we moved into our apartment in 2008, and both Hershey and I were warned not to break (referring to Hershey) or pee (ummm.. I think this one is referring to me) on it because it is 'expensive'.

This vase only 'sees the light of day' during Chinese New Year, and spends the rest of the time in the storeroom where mom uses it as an umbrella stand and to hold the vacuum cleaner noozle when it is not in use. LOL!! (Just wait till dad's parents find out!!)

Anyway, here we are, one year later with Chinese New Year just 3 days away. The vase had found its way back into the centerspot of the living room. Below are the photos taken this year... you can see that nothing much has changed (yes, my pesky black and white sister is still the same).

Hershey your are nearly perfectly symmetrical in your coat coloring....just lovely. Mom says she L O V E S the pictures of the vase, flowers and shadows. Very artistic and we love the color of the wall behind the vase. Happy New works at a local university and tells me she has lots of Chinese friends so she knows about a lot of your celebrations.

Hershey, you are certainly posing very nicely by that important vase! I'm glad you are being a good girl. Just watch your big brother and make sure he doesn't get any ideas, ok? :)

My M says the shadows of the flowers on the floor is very pwetty, but I think not as pwetty as Hershey.

When will we get a play date again?
