Happy New Year! (Again)

Over the weekend, this Mommy had a lot of fun celebrating Chinese New Year!  Our host son / exchange student (from China) led the festivities to reign in the Year of the Dragon.  What a blast!
Our host son is cooking his special Chinese Pork

"Happy Spring Festival" - the technical translation

No one went home hungry

We played about eight rounds of Mah Jong - but not for money!!

Paper Lanterns, of course (and everyone wore red to match)

Nothing better than a snowy firework show

It was surely a great time...but now it's going to be all work this week!  And, as I get writing (with plenty to write about) - so should you!  Need an idea?  Don't forget that I'm hosting a writing contest with real prizes!  Check out the original post to the contest details here.

Happy New Year! Again!

Carrie - It was a great experience (but not the library thing...)

He looks like a delightful person. And he cooks, too!

I think student exchange programs are the best. Our family hosted roughly 15 students over the years (some stayed with us a whole year) and I was an exchange student, too. They were life changing, world opening experiences!
