Today is the first day of the Chinese New Year celebration for the year of the horse!
When we decided to adopt a child from China, we committed to incorporating the rich culture of China into our lives, and one way in which we want to do that is for our family to celebrate Chinese New Year. As the girls get older, we hope to make our celebrations somewhat more culturally significant, but for now, we’ll stick with what the girls are really able to get into at their current ages.
Matt filled some red envelopes with new stickers and some money for each of the girls, and delight abounded 🙂
Then we went out to our favorite local Chinese restaurant to enjoy some egg rolls, dumplings, and noodles – reminiscent of our time in China!
Here’s Miranda rockin’ the chopsticks 🙂
Matt and CaiQun were both intensely excited about the dumplings!
But at heart, our Henan girl is a noodle-lover 🙂
Happy New Year!
