Gung Hay Fat Choy! Year of the Tiger

Happy Chinese New Year! This is a big deal for us because the New Year is China's biggest holiday. Keeping Jia's cultural background is very, very important to our family. Jia has already celebrated in school wearing traditional dress and handing out red envelopes with chocolate coins. Because this year the New Year coincides with Valentines Day (IMHO a Hallmark holiday)
The Dragon Festival will be on Tuesday. I am so happy that my 6 year old asked me "when is the China Festival Mom?"

As for the Olympics--we thought the Opening Ceremony was beautiful and were very proud of Drew's beautiful country of Canada. We all watched the athletes walk into the stadium and cheered loudly-of course for the USA, Canada and China.

Wo ai ni
(I Love You)

all of us...

Ps. Snow in Florida tonight.....
