Blink of an eye and it’s Chinese New Year again. This Dragon year seems to come particularly fast as it falls on 23rd January, less than a month from Christmas.
This is also the first year we bring our XL (Xavier Lucas) boys out for CNY house visiting and to say we are tired is an understatement. We are totally exhausted and drained by the end of the first day. Having visited 5 houses and with rain not making the whole process easier, we both agreed we should just crash on our beds and leave the washing and cleaning up till the next day.
I didn’t even have time to take out the camera and snap photos like the previous years. The two photos above were two of a handful of photos I took for the whole day. I find myself taking cat naps in between visits as I try to regain some energy.
The two boys looked great in their matching outfits though. Xavier seems to enjoy the visiting although it’s now much harder to get him to greet the elders or say “Gong Xi Fa Cai” to relatives he only sees once a year. He usually only warms up by the time we are leaving the place.
Hope CNY house visiting would be easier from now on.
