Happy Chinese New Year! The kids are starting to love this tradition more and more, and well -- you can probably see why!
My inlaws came by to drop off their traditional red envelopes filled with cash. And in usual Chinese New Year tradition, I did manage to clean the floors and get all the laundry done and Jacob even got a haircut just in time to celebrate the Year of the Dragon!
My oldest asked me "Mom, does everyone get to celebrate Chinese New Year?" I kindly told him that anyone could celebrate but there are lots of people who don't, and that's okay.
I know how silly it is that I will actually keep their red envelopes but I just LOVE having that treasured writing on them that was put their by my mother-in-law. I know it will be fun to look back at once the boys are older. I think I may have saved a few of the red envelopes that even the hubs and I received before we had kids. The hubs can't read or write Chinese but I simply just love the idea of my boys having these in their little-boy-books to look back one one day.
Family traditions are the bomb-diggity! Happy new year!
