Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy Chinese New Year. It's 4706, so don't forget when you're writing your next cheque.



Gratuitous shots of my beautiful children.





Yes, there was a lot of bribery involved in getting these pictures.

  6. Oh just gorgeous.
    I'm wondering what you said in the second photo to get such a response!
    Bribery is always the way to go I find. I got some of my best photos with bribery.

  8. I can't even remember to write 2009 on checks, how the hell am I supposed to write 4706? Oh yeah, I don't write checks, that's so 2008.

    Love the shots, they are definitely worth the bribery. Happy Chinese New Year!

  9. 新年快樂,船長Dumbass和家庭!

    Many blessings to you in the New Year!

    Ni hao, dude. Great pictures and I like the jackets. Hey, what's Chinese for Dumbass? Inquiring minds want to know. Also, when is the next Year of the Snake?

    (I hope that's right, and that it doesn't say something totally inappropriate!)

    Or maybe dance moves.

  36. Happy new year to you and your gorgeous children. As we speak, my son is making a thank you card for some lucky money that a girl in his class gave everyone today.

  37. Bribery huh? Should we all chip in to reimburse you? Wonder if that's tax deductible. Adorable Kiddos!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes I could, yep I am that powerful, say around 2:30.

    ReplyDelete
  39. What is this. . . the year of the cowlick???? I don't want to be the one to tell you this, but the younger one has something growing out of the back of his head. . .that's why he's so surprised in the second picture!!!!

    Seriously. . .they are too cute.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I desperately want to squish them. I'm a good way.

    ReplyDelete
  41. They are ADORABLE!!! (weren't the cheesemen invited? You're being a bit discriminatory I'd say...)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Those costumes are so 4705. But cool nonetheless.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Happy New Year!
    Your kids are adorable.
    It's so hard to keep track of the years... I'm at 5769, H is at... 1387 (I think) and now you have 4706... we could do some serious time travel here... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Watch out, Hugh Hefner. Those are the third and fourth most adorable boys ever. (I'm obligated to say that so my two can't blame me in therapy later!)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Your boys are so angelic looking! (I'm suspicious. Were they tipping over the refrigerator just before these pictures were taken?)

    Year of the snake here.
