新年快乐 (xīn nián kuài lè) Happy New Year!

Today is Chinese New Year. We were invited to a New Year's Eve party last night at our local Chinese restaurant. Bug was excited because it meant that she would get to stay up late, as we didn't head over there until 9PM. Here she is with the kids whose parents own the place.

We have a couple of Flat Stanley's visiting us right now, so they came along for the party, too.

Red envelopes = money!Many pictures were taken...

Our hosts for the evening.

Here's a shot of just about everyone that was there.
There was food. A lot of food. They were unable to tell us what much of it was. Other than the one container of soup (below), there were 2-4 plates of each of these. There also was a really good saugage (we think) and asparagus dish that I didn't get a picture of. It came out later, and I forgot to take a shot.

The butter shrimp was tasty.

Bug was fascinated by these shrimp.

We're pretty sure this was octopus...

Very yummy fish.

Pickled chicken feet, anyone? When they brought this out they said "chicken legs". We all looked at it and said "No, chicken feet." This was followed by laughter all around.

Duck and beef. Quite tasty.
