For New Year's day we went to the Hmong New Year's celebration at the Fresno Fairgrounds. I was able to get Jill to go again (3rd time?) and it was a first for Micah. I think that I am on 5 years in a row now. Micah loved all the booths, sounds and traditional clothes that many people were wearing. Last year I went by myself and spent time with my friend Ger and his family, at the end of the time there I saw a little shorts and shirt outfit and Ger ended up buying it for him. This year we got Micah the same type of outfit in a bigger size and also a matching hat to go with it. When it gets warm again Micah will be sure to wear his outfit to church and maybe some other places it Jill will allow it. Micah also enjoyed his first taste of Hmong sausage and bbq'd chicken along with a jello drink with a coconut milk flavor
Also this past week we said good bye to our Christmas tree for the year. I will miss seeing it lit up in the window as I would drive past each night coming home from work and looked forward to spending the evening with Jill and Micah.
