Chinese New Years Celebration

The other night our cute friends invited us over for a Chinese New Years get together for FHE. Candice went all out to make it a great night, delicious food, soothing Chinese tunes, paper lanterns, and she even printed off our Chinese Zodiac signs.
I am the rooster, (From Wikepediea) Acute, neat, meticulous, organized, self-assured, decisive, conservative, critical, perfectionist, alert, zealous, practical, scientific, responsible. Can be over zealous and critical, puritanical, egotistical, abrasive, opinionated.

I sound like fun.

T is the rabbit, (From Wikepedia) Gracious, kind, sensitive, soft-spoken, amiable, elegant, reserved, cautious, artistic, thorough, tender, self-assured, astute, compassionate, flexible. Can be moody, detached, superficial, self-indulgent, opportunistic, lazy.

At least he's not the rooster.

There was no shortage of cute kids here. Adyson and Sienna were thrilled to play with all the fun toys. And Peyton (the very out numbered boy) put up with all the loud screaming girls just fine. I was just excited to hold new baby Alivia! Goodness she is as pretty as they come!


I guess in China the kids get red envelopes filled with money for New years, so the kids all got red envelopes filled with chocolate candy. They were thrilled, the proof is on Sienna's face. Chocolate everywhere!

Thanks for the fun night guys! We had a great time ringing in the CNY with you.

That is such a cute idea, how fun. My aunt celebrated it with her kids too and then called everyone and told us they are adopting a little Chinese girl. I thought it was a cute time to tell everyone.

What a fun idea! I'm the rooster too but I don't like some of those descriptions!

It's fun to see Candice's kids! They are so grown up! The last time we went for one of our walks, her baby was a newborn!

That is a very fun idea. Since we have the same birthday does that mean I'm a rooster too, or does it go off the year? :)
