We are the Palmer family. We have 5 GREAT reasons to celebrate Chinese New Year. God has created an amazing family for us through adoption. We have 5 amazing daughters all born in China. In July 2019, we were blessed to add Hannah, age 7, to our family.
We love traditions and making family memories. It is very important to us. We always celebrate Chinese New Year. We will gather with some friends and have a wonderful feast, crafts and games.
We begin with decorating our home and a fun shopping trip to the Asian market to gather all of our favorite treats. This year we will have several Chinese dishes including Noodles, Egg Drop Soup, Steamed Buns, dumplings and desserts.
We traditionally always read a book about the New Year and make lanterns.
This is the year of the Rat. This year we have made a ball filled with treasure and will pass it around until it empties out for all to win some treasures. The most important element to our celebration Saturday will be the love of family/friends and cherishing every moment together. We are very thankful.
Happy Chinese New Year!
