The Chinese part of our family, Ric's mom and Dad, invited us to their house to celebrate Chinese New Year. Ric's brother Brandon, also lived with an American family for many years, until recently. Rachel, the blonde, is his American sister. My children, (two of whom speak Chinese) Nellie, Dominic, and Andy are Ric's American siblings. Brandon, Ric's Chinese brother, does not speak any Chinese. lol
We began our celebration, as they would in China, watching some of the day long TV programing which would include, singing, dancing, acrobats, and magic shows.
Ariel was pretty unhappy that she no longer maintains the 'child' label and wasn't invited to fill a bag with goodies, which include red envelopes filled with varying amounts of good old American dollars.
