Yesterday marked the Lunar New Year, or Seollal, as it's called in Korea. It is the most important of the Korean holidays....so we definitely wanted to do something special!
We celebrated last weekend with a big group of friends at the amazing Kuma's Asian Bistro in Rockford, IL. It was fantastic to chat with so many lovely families (including Kris, Emily, Cori, Sue, Joanna, Kara, Christine, Jen and more!) and enjoy some yummy food. After dinner all the cuter-than-cute-Korean-kiddos dressed up in their hanboks and looked ADORABLE sitting together posing for pictures.
I don't have a ton of photos from the night, but here is one Kris' mom took that pretty much sums up how excellent the meal was...
Our little peanut obviously can't get enough of Korean food!!! And, ahem, we're working on proper table manners! ;-)
Last night our family of 3 celebrated the Korean New Year at home by watching the Olympics, dressing Si in his hanbok, and kicking around balloons in the kitchen.
Oh, how my smiling-pink-hanbok-wearing-son melts my heart.
So tell me, what are you looking forward to or wishing for in the year of the Tiger?!?
Be blessed in this New Year!!!!!!
