Sorry this is so late, but looking up some photos, thought I'd put this up anyway.
The first day we went to Ah Ma's house and did the usual tea ceremony.
This is the time we usually get some shots of all the kids in their New Year clothes.
None in a traditional Chinese garb this year.
Then we visited a family friend who had the Lion dance at her house.
It was totally thrilling for the kids to see one so close this year.
The fire crackers were deafening.
(Sorry I did not manage to catch the Lions in action as I was holding Max and my niece close to me. I had one child on a knee each. They were thrilled and terrified at the same time.)
We managed to visit 2 other homes.
By the time we got back it was time to shower and change to get to Ah Ma's for a steamboat dinner, with Yee-sang again.
Then we did the cake and song thing for Gadget-daddy.
This time, we had 2 cakes... just for the kids to sing and blow the candles.
Does this mean he aged 2 years instead of one this time? ;)
And in the midst of all the food, fun and noise, Micah was fast asleep on a lazy chair. All because he was too in volved in all the earlier visitations he did not nap. Hence he missed the dinner (Max was sleeping in Gadget-daddy's arms while we were visiting the third house).
