Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Today is the first day of the Year of the Boar! (or Pig, whichever you prefer.)

Gung Hay Fat Choy! We had to have Grandma translate the writing on the cake for us to make sure that the bakery gave us the right one! (we certainly didn't want to have a cake that had "Happy Birthday, Steve!" on it..)

We celebrated with our family early this year. We had our annual Chinese New Year dinner and celebration last Saturday, February 10th at my parent's house. The entire family was there, plus, Dick's sister, Meg, came out from North Carolina to join in the festivities.

There was a lot of great food, and great fun, as usual. We had an enormous spread of delicious food, which we all chipped in to help Grandma prepare.

May you all have a healthy and prosperous Year of the Boar!
