Dane Reaches Whole Numbers!

Here are the highlights of Dane's Family Birthday Party~

We played the Korean traditional First Birthday Game because Koreans are really cool (Miriam). My sisters have done an Americanized version where they just put objects that represent different career fields and whatever object he chooses represents his future career path. He first picked the calculator. Next the apple. And finally the spool of thread (which in the Korean version represents a long life)

He got a cool red wagon (pictured) from Auntie M and Thompson Grandparents. He also got lots of other cool gifts from family members..!

And he couldn't get enough of that little cake. At first i think he was surprised that we were just letting him go to town. then he really got in to it - flinging the cake off his fingers all over the room.

Sister Time~

My sister Holly came to visit us in Nebraska this past weekend! So fun! Its not always easy to get visitors when you live in Lincoln, Nebraska. It was a little easier when i lived in Los Angeles! So we really enjoy our visitors out here. We inadvertantly booked the trip over Mother's Day so she missed out on her family spoiling her but i think the neverending pie parade at church almost made up for it... She was without kids so we tried to show her a good time. The fun involved shopping, rollerblading, and a tambourine. Don't ask. Except that a tambourine makes everything more fun. :)

We have a cheesy picture like the one above from many years ago so we tried to re-enact it. Thanks to Holly's awesome husband Mark for holding down the fort back in Boise so she could come play!
