The Year of the Dragon

I'm a bit late posting about Chinese New Year because I left my camera at my Father-in-Law's house last weekend.

It has become an annual tradition to celebrate with our friends, who graciously cook an amazing authentic menu each year. The kids make the wontons for their wonton soup from scratch!

The festivities were complete with the making of a New Year's craft, the release of Chinese lanterns into the sky, the exchanging of red envelopes, and a dragon dance with an authentic dragon mask for the kids to parade around in.

Since it's the year of the dragon, we dressed Charlie in Daniel's handsome cherry red suit with a golden dragon on the front. Daniel always looked like a little warrior in that suit, and it looked equally precious on his little brother.

We feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends to help us carry on such important traditions in our children's heritage!
