I am afraid I am not very culturally aware. Apparently yesterday was Chinese New Year. Ryan came home from work and suggested we celebrate. We celebrated at the local Chinese buffet. The last time we went, Annie and Maddie were in diapers and I am pretty sure we vowed to never make them suffer through our presence again. Between the mess we made, the feelings of frustration of 4 small children who didn't wish to sit still, and the big price tag we just hadn't wanted to go back until now. The call of all you can eat shrimp and crab legs brought us back. And boy, did we stuff ourselves.
Ryan asked our waiter how to say "Happy New Year" in Chinese, and he kindly wrote it down for us.
