Monday marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Apparently it's a pretty big deal and everything shuts down over there for the celebration. (Sadly, this also includes the offices that I need to be OPEN to process our paperwork so we can travel.....but I digress).
There is an animal attributed to every year and after a little googling I discovered that Lia was born in the year of the pig. Every girl's dream, right?
According to this calendar, I also have an ox, a rabbit, a horse, and a rooster at home. Throw in the real life golden retriever and I think that accurately describes life around here on any given day.
Wouldn't trade it for anything, though.
My ox, rabbit, horse and rooster in action....
