Year of the Rabbit 兔 and Birthday Parties
Chinese New Year is typically a busy time of the year for us. We generally follow many of the traditions (including cleaning the house), eating at a Chinese Restaurant and going to a local celebration. This year was a little different, as I did not pay attention to the calendar when we booked our winter vacation. This year (the year of the rabbit) was a bit abbreviated. However, Gabe did get to celebrate at the Chinese Day Care and Maddy got to be a flower presenter at CAAM CDT China the Beautiful Show, which was pretty exciting. Unfortunately, Maddy missed a chance to perform with her class at a Chinese New Year celebration at the University of Minnesota. We will have to consult the calendar before planning our next vacation.
