Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Well what's cookin's is Jaio Zi, chinese dumplings. Last night we celebrated with our annual new year's tradition of making homemade chinese dumplings to ring in the new year. The Chambers came over and brought yummy Pei Wei and Tsingtao beer and joined our assembly line. Jared kind of thought the forced labor was not all that necessary to celebrate the new year, but he joined in and did great! :)

And as we ended the night, it started snowing. Beautiful!
