Happy New Year!

Today is Chinese New Year. Since we will soon (okay 3 years isn't soon but...) have a little girl from China we decided to start celebrating the culture. One fun way to do that is to celebrate new holidays. My sister's family has been doing this a few years and now it is time to join the fun. I am looking forward to learning much, much more about Chinese culture as we wait. I know they have specific customs when it comes to the New Year. My parents international students from China have done a great job at educating us.
To mark this special day we are having dinner at a local Chinese restaurant with the whole family. It should be lots of fun. I also plan on adding to our collection of books about China with a trip to Barnes and Noble. On Sunday my sister is hosting a New Year party and I can't wait for that! She has lots of fun things planned including a dragon dance :) Don't worry I will take lots of pics. By the way, 2008 is the year of the rat.
Happy New Year!

We have been invited to the Gochis New Year celebrations in the past. We sure are going to miss that celebration now that they are in Waco. :(
