Happy Chinese New Year--The Year of the RAT





We celebrated Chinese New Year tonight with our local Families with Children from China group. There was great food and fellowship, crafts, a silent auction for a Chinese charity for orphans, and many rounds of ring-around-the-rosie. That's Chinese, right?!

I think I'm glad that I wasn't born in the year of the rat. (Who wants to be a rat?!!) Well, how about a pig? Yeah, that's me! Billy and Vivian are both dogs, Rebecca is a snake, and Henry and William are sheep. What's your sign? Check out this page to read all you need to know about Chinese astrology.
