1) have steamboat reunion dinner
2) offer oranges to our elders and exchange for red packets and/or blessings
3) take a lot of family photos since we're all dressed up!
We did it in the Year of the Rabbit (2011), Year of the Dragon (2012) & Year of the Snake (2013) so not surprisingly, we did it again this year! =)
First was our annual steamboat reunion dinner.

Then it was offering 2 oranges to our elders on the first day of CNY.
|Happy Chinese New Year!|

Baby Boy does not look like he trust her in the slightest! *laughs*
Finally, it was taking as many family photos as we could before the kids and/or guys started complaining!

|Finally, photos of us as a family of FOUR! =)|

(Missing my dad who is working hard in China! Sad..)
There was also another baby in the family, who was just 5 months older than Baby Boy!

So happy that Baby Boy has so many friends who are about the same age as him. Hopefully he will grow to enjoy hanging out together with them every CNY as much as we did =)
I'm looking forward to more feasting and fellowship to come! =)
Happy Chinese New Year of the Horse
to all my family and friends! =)
