A very fun CNY celebration



Although we don't live in this county, our adoption friends always include us in their festivities. We had a fabulous time celebrating Chinese New Year with them. Everyone brought their favorite Chinese dish for a scrumptious meal, I even tried some curry dishes, trying to aquire a taste, the girls love it! They went all out with wonderful decorations, shared the history of CNY, Dragon parade, kids crafts, they made lanterns & shakers for the parade, colored dragons & painted Chinese characters. We ended the night with fireworks and cake. It was great to see everyone again and hear some wonderful news, new adoptions. Congratulations Cindy! It was fun seeing all the little ones, now a year older.
