Guess who’s ONE! We celebrated Alison’s first birthday with a pink giraffe-themed party (Alison’s favorite color and animal).
A Chinese tradition is the birthday grab game — that the first item Alison grabs on her first birthday may be an indication of her future career. We placed the computer mouse (tech) and thermometer (medicine) in the middle, but Alison ended up reaching for the golf ball (athlete).
Jon did a second round where he placed various tech books out. She reached for the book representing mobile engineer. I guess Jon should learn Swift so he can teach Alison…
Kathy made some traditional foods: red eggs and long life noodles. She also made mini cupcakes, jungle juice (pink lemonade), and Jumanji juice (for grownups only).
We had little safari animal-themed boxes of jelly beans and runts as party favors.
Instead of a cake, Kathy made Alison a jumbo cupcake. We took some cake smashing photos for fun.
