Happy Chinese New Year
The house isn't as clean as I would like, but the girls did get new clothes today and I have red envelopes ready to place under their pillows. I plan to make longevity noodles tomorrow night. On Friday I'll talk about CNY in Tootle's classroom, and next weekend we'll gather with friends for our traditional dim sum/lion dance event. Rumor has it that the upcoming International Night at Tootle's school will feature the lion dance troupe that performed in the inaugural parade. We may also try to catch the parade in Chinatown next weekend. We've never gone, partly because I'm a cold weather wimp and partly because we often have other plans. Gung Hay Fat Choy from our house to yours.
