Congratulations Justin and Jessica!
Levette and Limil are getting married!
Nothing says love like balloons, Ben’s Chili Bowl and looking good in the bitter cold.
It looks like Amelia will be in finance or engineering! The Chinese tradition of zhuazhou typically provides a variety of items for a 1 year old to select which then gives insight into their future career. We wanted to limit Amelia’s choices (read: didn’t have all the items) so my mom held out a calligraphy brush (let’s call that the liberal arts path) and an abacus (let’s call that the engineering/finance path). After a moment’s hesitation Amelia ended up choosing the abacus, thereby sealing her fate behind a desk for the rest of her adult life. Given that a 1 year old birthday party is really for the parents and their friends, Korean tacos, pineapple fried rice, corn and black bean salsa and homemade gourmet cupcakes (thanks John Welsh!) were served. Entertainment for the adults was provided by Amelia’s crazy facial expressions upon her first taste of cupcakes and little boy William who started photobombing group photos. Thank you so much to the friends and family who came out to make Amelia’s birthday a special one. A special thanks to Tim and Mike who struggled mightily but finally triumphed in putting together one of Amelia’s presents.
