So, for those of you who have been wondering if we were celebrating the Chinese New Year...Yes.
Our local Asian community traditionally throws a big party on the weekend following the actual new year. Last year, it fell immediately after a deep-freeze (which happens most years in Colorado during the month of January). This year, we've had a particularly mild winter, and it just so happens that our first real snows took place this week.
Unfortunately for Q, the CNY dances take place between 1:00 and 3:00 pm...her usual naptime. So of course, she fell asleep in the car on the way over.
My husband felt the need to document that moment.
Shortly afterward, he took this extremely dorky picture of the two of us in the car, just before stepping out for the ceremony.
Oranges, sesame buns, and used fireworks (yeah, we arrived a bit late!)
