Chinese New Year

We celebrated Chinese New Year three times this year. It started with the local FCC Chinese New Year party. This was a huge event with crafts, music, dancing and a show featuring maritial arts and a dragon dance. Sophia was a little young to appreciate most of the activities she loved the music and watching the dancing.

On February 17th we went out to dinner with a group of fifteen of our friends. They all study maritial arts with Steve or are spouses of Steve's training buddies. We went out for Thai food. It was delicious. The best part, however, was spending time with everyone. Sophia was presented with a red envelope, her first one since she has been home.

On Sunday, February 18th, we braved the cold and wind and headed into DC for the Chinese New Year parade. There were tons of people and the parade was very short but I am glad we went.
