To all those that celebrate the Chinese New Year, just wanted to wish you all a wonderful, prosperous and healthy year! This year is the Year of the Snake! We just taught Austin the motion to sign for “Gong Xi” yesterday and he’s already a pro at doing it. ;) “Gong Xi” means wishing/blessing/congrats, it’s a phrase that many use to celebrate the New Year. Also, children are given red envelopes filled with money as a sign of good luck and fortune as well. Whenever Austin gets one of these, he just throws it away… we’re working on getting him to hold on to them once he gets them. ;)

    Happy Chinese New Year! My work had a mini celebration for it on Thursday which one of our co-workers hosts every year. It was fabulous, and sooooo much delicious food! <3
