Happy Lantern Festival 09!!

Today marks the end of the Chinese Spring Festival - the fifteenth day of the celebrations, culminating on a full moon. I have written previously about the significance of this day, so I won't write it again. Today is called "The Lantern Festival" so we made lantern crafts, and had a fun candlelit dinner together while fireworks lit up the sky. Rarely a quiet moment during CNY. Thankfully, the kids slept thru it all again! Xin nian kuai le!! 新年快乐!
