Chinese New Year 2013

You would think that after being married 9 years I would remember that we have Chinese New Year to celebrate each year, but somehow I always forget.  When my husband reminds me, it is always a pleasant surprise.  I just love the food, the fun, and an excuse to spend time with family!!

This year, being the year of the snake, I had the girls make snake table decorations.

Once family arrived, the girls were ecstatic.  I just love how excited they get whenever family comes!

Daniel made us tempura as an appetizer… because beef, pork, shrimp, sashimi, soup, rice, and veggies weren’t going to be enough!  (Ha!  We ate well for a few days!)

My little nephews are so adorable… even if they are terrified of their big, white, blondie auntie!

Both my brother and sister-in-laws have birthdays the beginning of February, so we sang and had cake for dessert,

They also brought these incredible treats from their favorite bakery.  Nom Nom.  Happy New Year!

(And, on a totally random note, I just discovered that my initials CNY are the same as Chinese New Year — don’t ask me why I always think about these things!)
