A Horse is a Horse of Course

Happy Chinese New Year!!  Goodbye Dragon, Hello Horse!  We had dinner with all our favorite people at our go-to Chinese restaurant. (Pam and Jason's, but it's actually got a real name...I can't remember).  Actually we celebrated a day early, but who's counting?  Is that considered bad luck??  Hope not.

I apologize if advance for the picture quality.  It was actually fairly dark inside and I didn't want to use my flash (the coloring is HORRIBLE...I'm sure there's a way around that but...ya).  So a lot of the pictures are very red and very blurry.

The parentals...


Not sure what he ate more of...the noodles, the rice or the ice in nearby glasses of water

I got to wear my Chinese dress that The Man's Auntie gave me last time we were in Malaysia.  (I have to wear it with's a tish short)

A quick family picture in all our Chinese outfits before the kids were put to bed

Hooray for Chinese New Year!  I, yet again, did not decorate for it.  I so want to but I never seem to get around to stuff like that.  And I have lots of fun lanterns that we got from Malaysia.  Maybe once the dust settles I can handle the idea of bringing stuff out.

Anyway, we had a lovely dinner with friends and family and I'm glad we got to celebrate.  The kids were very well behaved, thankfully!  I hope it's one we will celebrate every year and that it may become a significant event for our children.  It's a wonderfully rich culture that I don't want to loose from our VERY American lifestyle's.

Happy Chinese New Year!!!

  1. So I have to guess: the top fortune is the Man's and the bottom is Lady Chan's, right? Love the family picture and the outfits!
