February Gumbo

January 30, 2008

We are getting ready for the busy month of February when we will be celebrating Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, Noah's Birthday, Nana's Birthday, Gotcha Day and Valentine's Day. February kind of sums up our family...a gumbo with an interesting mix of cultures and customs. One February I think we should just have one big party complete with a King cake, red envelopes, Mardi Gras beads, valentines, Chinese dumplings and noodles, gumbo, bagels with lox, and chocolate, lots of chocolate! Today we started working on Valentines and Chinese lanterns.

I think a "gumbo" party would be hiliarious!

That's a great idea. :) Though I kind of like the spread-out hodgepodge of holidays that (early) February is (at least).

I LOVE the gumbo party idea!
We have a very similar stretch from mid June to mid July...Fathers day, Kai's b-day, Our anniversary, Luke's b-day, 4th of July, and Family Day.

And here I was thinking that February is dull! :)
