Happy Valentines Day....and Happy Chinese New Year!

We aren't big celebrators of Valentines Day really, so you won't find a sugar sweet sentiment here about it. Hope you spend at least part of the day with or communicating with someone you love. Personally, the best part of Valentines Day for me is the fact that it is my sisters birthday. is also the start of Chinese New Year this year! This is the year of the Tiger.

And we finally got hooked up with our local FCC and attended their celebration last week.

In China, it is the time of year everyone travels back to their family and celebrates big time. The country pretty much shuts down for 2 weeks while everyone celebrates. The Chinese know how to celebrate!

And our CNY celebration was complete with out-of-town guests! Yes, we had our own little family celebration with a family that has become part of our own.
Hubs surrounds by the smell of teen spirit.
Butterfly gives chop sticks a try. She did real good too. We started eating the goldfish out of the red take-out boxes. Yum!
1....2....3... Mighty Mouse tries lo mien with chopsticks. This was pretty funny! She wrapped the noodles around the chopsticks and went from there. Creative to be sure.

My girls...


  1. Happy Chinese New Year! We had a mini celbration by fixing Ants Climing a Tree and Egg Drop Soup. YUM!!

  2. Happy Chinese New Year! And I am now convinced that slurping noodles is an art form.
