February 8th was the Chinese New Year! Welcome to the year of the Monkey! We celebrated by having an *authentic Chinese dinner complete with a whole fish, noodles, whole chicken, potstickers, and tong yuan for dessert. The Menkes joined us and we gave all the kids red envelopes with cash inside. They used the cash to buy these really cool Hexbug "Warriors" which battle each other and have a health meter and shut down when their meter drops to zero. Don't worry - Daisy was the referee to make sure there was no cheating.
I'll just leave this here. Ellie being a little goofball with Maxine's glasses.
