Year of the Ox

We spent yesterday morning celebrating the Chinese New Year. A local museum had an amazing day. We watched a lion & dragon dance. It was very interesting. The kids were captivated by the dragon. I have never seen anything like it. I really enjoyed it.

The kids created plum blossom trees and masks. We all had our names written in Chinese. We are going to get these framed and hang them in my living room. I cannot wait to see how it turns out. We all participated in a noodle tasting where we had to use chopsticks. This wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.
