In Honor of the Year of the Monkey

I am sorry that I have been MIA for a bit.  I was hoping to write up a post on Friday, but did not get a chance to do it.  By the end of the weekend I was too sick to much of anything but sleep.  I was in bed for 2 1/2 days with a low grade fever.  Thankfully after much rest, prayers, and medication I am feeling back to normal today.  :)  The flu bug has been going around.  I hope that you and your family have been able to stay healthy.  Well, today I would like to share with you some goodies that I put together for Chinese New Year.  Although Chinese NY was in early last month my side of the family did not celebrate with my extended family until last weekend.  We usually like to celebrate a month later so that the restaurants are not as crowded.  Along with passing out red envelopes my family and I purchased bags of rice crackers give out.  I used my banner punch die from Stampin Up to decorate the front of it.  I also used my circle punches and my word window punch from SU.  The monkey stamp is from a company called Snake Oil Sam that I am not sure if it is still around.

Along with the rice crackers I also purchase Chinese candy and decorated the box and stamped the monkey on it.

Before ending this post I wanted to share a picture of some friends and I at church wearing our Chinese outfits for our annual Chinese NY brunch.

Every year we invite our students' parents to join us to enjoy some porridge together.  We always have a fun time of eating and fellowship together. I almost forget.  I have two more pictures to share in honor of Chinese NY.  The first one is of my hubby and I at California Adventure for their annual Lunar NY celebration.

Last and not least is a picture of my long lost twin and I.  LOL! 

We take an annual picture together wearing our Disney Chinese NY shirts.    Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Ummm, the munchies look so ono and you decorated them well. Your family must always look forward to see what kind of goodies you'll share with them. Bet they were all smiles! All of the ladies look so pretty in their Chinese outfits. Have a great rest-of-the-week.
