First Birthday Party Success

The party turned out great despite the fact that I forgot to put out the sour cream and guacamole. Amsister came to my rescue and helped me out with the cooking and setting up, while Dave and Niknik finished up the decorating. We were a bit late on the schedule, but what do you expect? We live stateside, but we were programmed since before we were born with the Guam-time motto. If the party is scheduled to start at a certain time, you arrive or start the party two hours later.

Tacos, pizza, and fruity nachos. Yum.

We had fun. The kids had fun. The food was good. The company was great. We didn’t get to do all that I wanted, and the company started to depart before we could open the presents, but it was still great.

Despite the success, I’m not doing this again for a long time. It was way too much for one person to handle. I got lucky Ams was there to help me sprint to the finish.

On that note, Mom Auayan likes Ams. She senses that Ams is a good person. I agree. Besides, mom’s never wrong when it comes to first impressions.

Tomorrow is Maeby’s actual birthday. She will have a cake all to herself. It’s a soy chocolate cake. It looks tasty.

Pictures from today and tomorrow will be up soon. Promise.


Our quick vacuum story.

I needed the vacuum to get the air out of the space tote. Since I had it out already, I decided to do a quick vacuum run around the apartment. As soon as I turned it on, Maeby started crying and ran straight for me. I guess she thought she could hide behind my legs from the scary loud thing.

I continued to vacuum and everywhere I went, she followed. Sometimes she’d end up in front of it or even stepping on it. It was so cute because she was so scared of it, but instead of running far away from it, she tried to stay by me. Which is everywhere the vacuum went too.

I don’t know. If you could have only seen it. It would have been so much cuter than I described it.
