Gong Xi Fa Cai.

Supplies were bought...

Red envelopes were stuffed....


and stuffed...




With chocolate money and lucky candies...



Then it was off to the chinese Cultural center in our area. Jillian is waiting for the Lion dance and the food, LOL. For her it's always all about the food...


Jennifer looking at the drums used in the lion dance.

The lion(not the dragon, he came later)...Jennifer checking him out...



The dance was out of this world fantastic, the girls are still talking about it...


The music was so beautiful...


Then came the Money Gods, they handed out Lucky envelopes to everyone...


There was lots of dancing, the children were so adorable.
It was such a great beginning to the New Year.
From our family to yours, Gong Xi Fa Cai.
