Gung Hay Fat Choy

Wishing everyone a Happy Chinese New Year!
Mom, Sage, Dianne, Sophie, & Kathy

The boys school had a great CNY celebration. The kids enjoyed the crafts, tasting table, Chinese story area, and watching the awesome dragon dance, highlight of the evening! Everytime we turned around someone was snapping shots of our S & S, they got more pics of them then I did. I'm thrilled that this school spotlights different customs with a big focus on cultural awareness and appreciation. Sophie & Sage will attend next year, can hardly believe they'll be in Kindergarten by then.

Here's our 2nd annual CNY celebration- Year of the Rat. We continued our tradition making tasty Won Tons and Kathy's yummy Egg Rolls, reminiscing our China trip, reviewing the Chinese Zodiac- the girls and I are sheep, and enjoying details of Lena & Steve's Mexican Cruise they just returned from- envisioning ourselves there. Sophie and Sage received two Hung Bao's (red envelopes w/ money) from other special friends at church & school, Thanks Shannon & Long!

Sage and Uncle Mike. No reservations when it comes to Uncle Mike, she backed up to him, waited for him to pick her up, then finished her cupcake snug in his lap :).

To top it off, Danny & Linz stopped by to play and wish us a Happy Chinese New Year. What a treat!

Big hugs from Sophie and Sage to everyone who celebrated with us for a fun and festive CNY!

We were up that weekend but we were visiting my parents and Devin's parents for my birthday. (We had to celebrate late)It would have been fun to go though!
