Harper's Birthday Update

His real birthday was uneventful since he's totally oblivious to the truth, and we drove to Vegas on Weds to get some tax stuff done, but! Tomorrow. Tomorrow is the big party and Nana and Grandpa Oblad are coming. We are so excited for that! We've gone up there lately and the kids are busily cleaning their closets and under their beds in anticipation! You have no idea how happy they are that they are coming here...it's so cute!

Anyway, my awesome mother-in-law as most of you know is half Japanese and half Korean, so she's making all of the food. Did you hear me? She's HAPPILY making ALL of the food...well...except the cakes and a green salad and fruit platter and chips and dip. I'm making those. She's making Korean short ribs, fried rice with shrimp and beef and sausage (it is holy oh my crap so good) and Japanese noodle stuff and seriously probably 250 egg rolls. Come! Come eat! She is bringing chafing dishes so you know the lady ain't playin. Aaaanyway, I'm busy cleaning my carpet today because she's a crazy awesome neat freak which is ok, it teaches everyone to do their chores every day because she'll show up unannounced and look them in the eyes and say "you helping your mama?" and they think it's scary in a funny way because her accent is still so thick. So they do it. She rocks.

I'll post pics tomorrow after the adventure.

Love you all! By the way, is it Vons or Albertson's who gives a free 1 year birthday cake??? I can't remember.

I want to come! I will eat a whole chafing dish and be chafing in my pants for a few weeks! I love that kind of food! How come you didn't give us notice a little sooner! I will be expecting some food packed in ice and overnighted to us. K, thanks!
I think it is Albertsons too, but I think I paid about $7 (I think) for Spencer's because I had them copy a picture of him onto that filmy crap so he could dig into his own face. He just stared at it forever until I shoved his hand into it. Come on, just bake a box and frost both layers like we did for Oli. You can't beat the laughs and they barely get any in their mouths. You can do that the night before too!
