Mav showing off his Super-Mav outfit, that I purchased at an adoption fundraising auction.
Mdx helped greet the guests.
The party table (see the pictures on the wall?!). Ice cream cakes, beer, treats for the kids, and cake pops!
The strawberry cake pops were made by a Captain in Marshall's office. They were awesome!
We got boxes of cookies, and Maddox wrote "Thank You!" notes, signing her name in English and Korean.
We were packed into the restaurant, luckily they turned on the AC for us! There were a few funny moments, but one particularly embarrassing one. We began to open presents, and Mdx opened her first present, which was a Toy Story game for her Leapster. She thought it was the Toy Story movie, which she had only tried to watch once, but she thought it was scary and screamed for me to turn it off. So when she opened up the game she yelled "I don't like that!" and practically threw it at me. ACK! I was mortified. I had to explain that it was a game, not the movie, and apologize to Megan, who gave it to her. After the party I started working with Mdx on "present face" (you know, no matter what- you smile and say "thank you so much!"). Let's hope that never happens again.
This was our surprise guest- Mr Chicken!!
Toward the end of the party- SuperMav passed out.
Back at home, Mdx practiced telling people that she is FOUR.
The next day we went to Blue Opera and saw Imo. She gave Mdx this beautiful white shawl that she crocheted herself! It was so special.
Our last Sunday lunch at Blue Opera! We sure do miss it there.
