Gōng Xǐ Fā Cái

Happy New Year! I don't know about you, but this year an extra chance to start new feels especially freeing. And who can argue with a new beginning dressed in vibrant red, filled with Chinese food, brimming with dragons, and ending in fireworks?!? The Chinese sure know how to start the year off right.
Note Ben's signature crossed eyes.  I didn't notice this when I took the picture... sneaky little guy
Our littlest dragon
WanYing loved the buns.  A lot.
Sasha concentrates on her dragon coloring with trademark tongue out
Sasha displays her finished dragon
Sam is very reasonably concerned about WanYing's "help" with the scissors
WanYing's finished dragon (mostly the girls just liked playing "ninja" with the sticks)
Dragon parade time! Ben is such a good sport (this is my favorite part of the evening)
Once again, Sam is a Lion Butt
WanYing definitely enjoyed her first dragon parade
Now for Sam's favorite part - the hóng bāo (red envelopes filled with money)
Happy New Year everybody!
