Chinese New Year is long past, but we still wanted to share some of these pictures with you.
Here's Lily on her "Empress Throne"...otherwise known as the woodburning insert in the Onken family room. It's become her little personal chair ever since she learned to climb up on the bricks. I haven't had the heart to start a fire this winter since that would mean no more "Empress Throne" for Lily.
Lily greeting her guests at the door. We had about 25 people at our party.
The dragon flies high above the snack table.
Here's a closer look at what Julie set out for everyone. The rest of the food was from a local Chinese restaurant.
