Two Holidays!!!

Today was an exciting day -- two holidays!

That's right -- not only is it Valentine's Day, but it also is Chinese New Year!

First, two pics from yesterday. Daisy has now learned how to ride on David's shoulders.
Holding on wears her out...

Now onto the fun of today... after church, we went to a women's basketball game with Jeanette. David's coworker Pat got us some great tickets. Dongbo, Callie, Laura, and Mama & Papa Staats also came to the game and visited us in our seats. Here's a picture of us at the game from the Hokie sports website. We're right in the background between the two players!

After the game, David gave me my Valentine's gift -- CREAM SODA!
He got a new brand to try, and it was really good. We got a whole case of sodas, including root beer and ginger ale. Tasty!

Finally, we went to dinner with Dongbo, Callie and Annie to Charlie's Chinese in Christiansburg to celebrate Chinese New Year. Welcome Year of the Tiger. Goodbye Year of the Ox (Daisy's birth year). This was Daisy's first Chinese New Year! Fortunately, she got to celebrate it with some real Chinese food ordered in Chinese (by Dongbo, who can speak it well.)

Here are the actual Chinese people in our group: Dongbo (100%), David (50%) and Daisy (25%)

Yum, look at all our food!

What a great day!
