Chinese New Year 2013

This morning, the kids woke to find red envelopes under their pillows.

Unlike Chinese tradition, we gave each of the kids a bit of money to buy some ice cream.

Schäfer asked if 100 Baht was the same as $100 USD.

(100 Baht is $3.40 USD – so not quite the same.)

For us, being at the beach was the perfect place to welcome to the Year of the Snake!

We rang in the New Year by…



eating popsicles…

and walking.

No loud fireworks during nap time.
No friends handing our kids overly generous amounts of money.
No traditional meals.

Just quiet. And laughter. And fun.
