She had a great time with my camera, for which reason I took very few pictures.

The Chinese New Year is February 7th, but the Atlanta History Center held a celebration Sunday.

Knowing that people wear red for the Chinese New Year, it was H.o.p.’s idea to wear a red dragon shirt he’d picked up in New York’s China Town.

H.o.p., Marty and I attended with a brother of mine and his daughter, enjoying several hours of dancing and music. We missed my brother’s wife and their other daughter, but the reason they weren’t with us gives much cause to celebrate. They are currently in China and were finally united this weekend with the newest member of their family who traveled two long years from Hanzhong to meet them.

My brother and his wife have a new son, their two daughters have a new sibling, I have a new nephew and H.o.p. has a new cousin.

Welcome! Welcome!

  1. Thank you. We are excited as can be. My new nephew managed to arrive on train (ten hours) through a big snowstorm that has ended up closing most of the roads. Just now saw a number of pics of him with my sister-in-law. Until now we’d only had a couple of old pictures. He’s cute! I understand my little niece is doing her best to make him welcome. 🙂 She’s something herself. Really missed her yesterday.
