Chinese New Year

This year we had a fun family Chinese New Year! We started the morning with breakfast rabbits because it is the year of the rabbit. Later in the day we gave the children envelopes to decorate in red (for luck). They then had a coin hunt to fill their envelopes. Usually in China children are given red envelopes with coins to mean good fortune. After that we had Chinese for dinner and decorated Almond cookies for dessert. We had noodles for longevity and dumplings for wealth. We capped the night of with party blowers, chocolate coins, and glow sticks. It really was fun. Unfortunately Jack was still a bit under the weather.
