Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year. Yesterday was officially Chinese New Year, it is the year of the Ox. We celebrated with the Johnson's, which has become a tradition. She made some Chinese and Thai dishes that were super yummy. Then the kids made an Ox magnet and we played charades where the kids took turns acting out animals from the Chinese zodiac. We had a lot of fun and the kids were excited to bring their magnets to school to show them off!

On the Chinese Zodiac, Joel and Joely were both born in the year of the Dragon.
Taran and I were both both in the year of the Goat, and Kyler was born in the year of the Dog, and obviously the new baby will be born in the year of the Ox.

Amy was telling me about this today! I think it is such a fun tradition because its not one that everybody celebrates. Kinda Cool! I am way impressed that you know the different animals for each family member!
