We are now the happy celebrators of the Chinese New Year, thanks to the new addition in our family. Brent's Mom married an awesome man who is from Hong Kong. Simon and Brent's mom decided it would be fun to bring some of his family's traditions into our family! Simon really made this fun and special for us. He cooked up an array of yummy Chinese food and then gave ALL of us, including the babies, "Lucky Money" in red envelopes after we said something to them in Chinese and then wished them something for the coming year. It was a lot of fun! We're glad Simon cares so much about all of us and feels comfortable enough to share his traditions with us. He's a great addition to our family and so wonderful for Brent's mom.
Here is some of the yummy Dim Sum:
Nelmo couldn't eat the food but he did enjoy the lucky money for a bit.:)
Simon also made us some Mango Pudding which I'm modeling below. Nelmo was eying that too... I should have given him some, I think he would have enjoyed it.
Everyone just had a grand old time hanging out at Grandma's and Grandpop's.
Chico's best bud is starting to show a lot of interest in Nelmo and really wanted to hold him (with his daddy's help), so cute!
