Chinese New Year

Familybutton-1

Yesterday it was the Chinese New Year so we celebrated for Family Night.  I decorated the chandelier with a few Chinese lanterns.  And then I realized they were actually Japanese lanterns.  I'm so uncultured, sigh...But it still set the mood.

We started with Chinese noodles.  And of course we used chopsticks.

Dessert was Chinese cookies, of course.  My fortune said there would be romance coming my way.  Unfortunately my husband has not received the memo.

We also learned what our Chinese animal birth signs are, and what personality traits those animals share with us.  I printed out our animals and we spent a few minutes coloring our animals.

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
