Lunar Year of the Horse

As another new year gallops in, I can't help but feel a little nostalgic. The Chinese New Year is a time for family get-togethers and gathering of old friends. New additions to the family, bright eyes and bushy tails, teens towering over adults, familiar faces with more grey hair and wrinkles, merriment and nostalgia all rolled together.

For us, taking photos with my parents on the first day of the Lunar New Year is part of our family tradition. With every new year, the boys grow taller as my parents shrink with age.

We also visited their paternal granny who is clearly very proud of her grandsons.

Wow

How BIG they've got! And Happy new year.

I haven't been blog hopping in years. I'm actually here because I thought your blog was dead and gone, because I'm recieving about ten spam messages through it a week - people leaving advertising on your older posts. I deleted 48 this morning. :-(

And I'm getting old. I found this and thought, "Oh wow! How big they've grown." ... then I see I replied in February. I fairness, I was busy publishing a book (that I'd just taken 8 months to write and edit) and my brain was fried.
