Happy Chinese New Year!!

In lieu of a more traditional Christmas Card we have decided to jump right into the Chinese Holiday spirit and post a Spring Festival card of sorts.

'Twas two nights before Spring Fest, above all the streets
Red Lanterns were hanging which looked really neat

The Saueys apartment on Bao Shan Bei Lu
Was cold and they'd been fighting the flu

Tucked inside the bedroom huddled under the covers
They looked back on the year and what they'd discovered

The big news of course was what happened in June
Saying their vows put love in full bloom

Finishing AmeriCorps happened rather fast
All the time spent in Denver was an absolute blast

To Wyoming and Georgia then the great 505
Traveling seems to keep those Saueys alive

Back to the Burg for a happy Thankgiving
Then Christmas in E-ville for yuletide living

Leaving for China finally arrived
They took off on a jet plane sitting side by side

Chinese New Year is a upon us, fireworks are now habit
Happy Spring Fest to all in the year of the Rabbit!!
