Saturday was the start to Abby's first birthday week extravaganza. This is a week in which Thanksgiving is but an afterthought and the whole week is a celebration of all things Abby. Albert's grandfather is flying in from Korea in honor of the occasion.

To kick things off, we had a party at Gymboree where I displayed the fact that should this whole Ph.D. thing not work out, I might have a future in making cakes for mom's who don't really care if the frosting is a little bit runny:
For those of you who can't tell, that's not a bear. It's a monkey. The cake is a banana cake in keeping with the theme. It actually came out quite tasty and for a first effort at decorating a cake, I would even go as far as to say that it's not too bad.

So what do you do at a birthday party for a one year old, some may ask... Well, it's quite simple really. You throw your daughter into a ridiculously cute pink dress which she promptly covers in drool (with the requisite pink bow in her hair lest someone still asks if she is a boy)...

You throw in some bubbles...

... and some games...

... and you convince some people to hit a Chinese restaurant where a couple named Wendy and Benny are getting married on the first floor. Your best friend proceeds to order way too much food for the 9 adults left standing and everyone goes home with enough left orders to feed a full family of four until Thanksgiving!

Thanks to all those who made it out!
