Last year, I made a resolution on my birthday. Instead of wishing something for myself, I wished that hub and I may fulfill a good cause: to be godparents to my nieces RK1 and RK2.
This decision was made after a deep consideration on my sister EK's physical condition - A widow, sole breadwinner in the family, and recently doctor found out her glucose is way off from normal. In short, she's not too well.
I made the 1st move by inviting RK2 to stay with us during Christmas holidays when my SILs came back for family gathering and stayed with us with the rest of Manson grandkids. RK2 enjoyed herself so much she looks forward to stay overnight with us since then.
It's Chinese New Year, so I offered to buy them new clothing for the 1st time. RK1 and RK2 absolutely enjoyed their shopping experience, and they both get to choose their own clothing.

Hub commented why RK1's dress so short? Well, that's suppose to go with a black legging, dear.
RK1 got another blouse to match with a black legging
(She desperately wanted to change her 12yo wardrobe so now she finally got some mature-looking clothing that suit her age)
Money just cannot buy the happiness of my little sweethearts.
I am pleased RK1 & RK2 spent wisely and it was within my budget set too.
There shall be more happy moments in my life with these kiddos, I'm sure, and this is just the beginning of it.
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Chinese New Year. May the year of dragon brings you energetic, exciting and great prosperity in life.
