According to the Chinese calendar, this is the year of the tiger, but Ric and Andy needed parents for Beary and Brown Bear so we added bears to their menangerie. Ethan not only gave Ariel her first flowers from a boy besides Ric, but also the grandaddy of all bears.
We celebrated CNY at Ric's parent's restaurant. There was tons of food and lots of chicken feet left over, if anyone wants to know where they can get some. They plan to close the restaurant next week - business has been really bad this year - and we are going to miss all the wonderful food terribly !
