The Year Of The Ox

Celebrating The Chinese New Year

Jim, Katie and Ben H. were one of the first families we met when we moved from Tennessee to Illinois. They have been such a blessing to us. Their son, Ben, went to school with Adam his freshman year and they became best friends right away. Katie and I have become very close over the past year. Katie is also a talented musician and teaches Andrew and Christian piano lessons every Saturday. Yesterday, Katie invited us over for dinner after piano lessons. She completely surprised us when we walked in their home with festive decorations, wonderful music, and delicious Chinese cuisine in honor of Chinese New Year and especially Lucey Lu.

Katie and Jim toasting with a cup of delicious tea and an egg roll. Jim and I put away a lot of those egg rolls waiting for Ron and Adam to arrive. They were so yummy.

Jim, dressed for the occasion. Katie sews too!

Katie sent us home with these special things--

Thank you Katie, Jim and Ben for such a wonderful time! Next year we will celebrate with Lucey :-)

(Andrew and Christian were there too--I feel bad that I didn't get them in a photo. They were busy playing Guitar Hero 3 of course.)
