Happy Chinese New Year 2008

We went down to New York to visit Grandma and celebrate Chinese New Year. Here are a few pictures from the festivities.

Kung Fu fan dance with my mom performing in the back (far right).

Traditional hot pot dinner. Yes, we've got American rolls, Italian meatballs, and milk in a Heineken mug!

Red envelopes sponsored by Hennessy Cognac(!) and an overly generous Grandma. I sense an alcohol theme this year... Check out the whole set of pictures here.

Here one last shot of Dova from last year when we made homemade dumplings in an attempt to be really Chinese...

LOVE the family photo!

Happy New Year!!

(The kids at school had a sign on the wall that was Hat...oh bother can't recall! UGH! I assumed it was Happy new Year in Chinese. It was really cute.)

I was totally unaware of the Chinese New Year until my child came home from school and told me all about it.
