For Chinese New Year, the children receive red envelopes called hongbao (excuse the lack of tones, I don’t know how to make those on my computer!) from most of the adults they know. Our girls got some from their grandparents and from us. They were so excited and surprised!
She sees dollar signs…ha! They each got 220 yuan (about $35usd).
Faith is always more interested in reading notes, but she was happy to have some spending money too!
This is what she looked at first…the letters.
Gracie loves letters too!
We are very blessed to have family and friends that love us so much. It is definitely something I feel we took a bit for granted when we had them all close enough to hug anytime we wanted!
