Blast from the past: I thought I'd give a quick peek at each Lunar New Year we've experienced since being in Asia. My how our family has changed over the past 6 years!

Year of the Monkey, 2004, Beijing:
Our most auspicious year, pregnant with Sophie!

Shaun celebrating by himself at the temple fair, eating juicy squid on a stick
Meanwhile, Lori and Sophie celebrate Uncle Scott and Aunt Tiffany's wedding in Sunny Florida!
Year of the Dog, 2006, Beijing:
Another lucky year, with Lucas warming in the oven!
Who can spot Shaun and Sophie?

Year of the Pig, 2007, Beijing:

And here's our little man!

Love that post! We sure missed celebrating CNY in Asia this year. We wore our Chinese clothes to church, and felt like we were back in Asia from all the stares we got- tee hee. We did order some Chinese food for dinner too, but we missed out on the dumplings.

I'm having flashbacks of exploding balloons during Chinese New Year festivities. That wasn't helium lighting up your apartment.

Hope you guys are well. kurt
