  3. Red envelopes with money for each girl ready to be put under their pillows: check
  4. Dumpling ingredients and craft supplies bought for tomorrow night's party: check
  5. Nian Gao cake recipe from China Sprout on kitchen counter, waiting for me to whip up the cake in the morning: check

It appears that we are ready for the lunar new year. This is the second of three weekends filled with Chinese New Year activities. Before having kids, I took February vacations to warm destinations. Now the New Year's activities chase the February blahs away. Happy New Year.
