Happy Chinese new year! Part 3(and there's still more after this)

After eating our candies we crossed the street to enter a similar store to the other. Upon entering the store I noticed two identical paper red and gold lanterns hanging side by side, I thought they where beautiful. First I went upstairs with my mom and my brother Keaden. We looked at painted scrolls and stuff. I saw one with a tiger, My zodiac animal is the tiger. Then we went downstairs to see the other stuff. There where other art pieces, jewelry, decorations, clothes and other cool stuff. While looking around at some red woven decorations the lady behind the desk complimented my hair and asked how I did it. I explained that my Friends mom did it and that we bleached it and then put paint-like dye on it and let it sit for a while. I enjoyed talking with her. Then my family Left the store and I reluctantly followed. Then I saw something and ran back into the store to take a picture of the Beijing Olympics stuffed animal toys and when I walked back out of the store I said "happy new year" to the person I talked to earlier about my hair. She seemed busy so she didn't look up when she said "Happy new year" but it still made me feel happy. On the corner of the sidewalk I saw a newspaper stand with a newspaper Saying "Lunar New Year Special Issue" with a big photo consisting of statues much like the one that guard that one Chinese King, but they lit up.
What are these?

It looks like Santa!

Look at this instrument! How do you think it is played?

There are turtles in there.

P.S. I'm working on my valentines and they are all mini collages and I love them all very much. I don't want to give them away! I will post pictures when they are done. I also have a state writing test that I'm working on at school. My story is about an old cat lady who likes lady gaga music.

Bye!
