Hippo's may look cute and friendly, but they are really vicious creatures that wouldn't hesitate to attack you if you get in their way. That's how I feel about myself--There is more to me than meets the eye! I am not by any means vicious but sometimes I like to pretend that I am sassy. I created this blog to share lovely things, creative things, thoughtful things, and just the things that I like.

80th Bday Party
A couple of weekends ago, we celebrated my Grandpa's 80th birthday. My mom put together this photo board of my Grandpa to celebrate. He has some pretty cool pictures as he served in the Korean War, he was an amateur boxer and just an all around busy guy.
My Grandpa loves history and politics, and black licorice ;)
We combined the celebration with my Grandpa's step-grandson's "100 Day" celebration, which is a traditional celebration in the Korean culture.
So we're not super sophisticated--we like pizza, chips and soda for a good party!
My Grandpa's wife is Korean and she made traditional Korean foods: pot stickers, waterlilly roots, kimchi, and other goodies. It was a fun blend of our two cultures.
For Baby Charles's 100 day celebration we wrote him well wishes for the future, and my mom got him his first set of chopsticks.
I love all of these pictures of my Grandpa. I am so lucky to have them.
And now comes the barrage of family pictures: one with all of the guys...
One with all the ladies...
One with all of the grandkids that were there (were missing a few).
My youngest brother bought my Grandpa a "Beavers Grandpa" shirt. My Grandpa started his college degree at OSU and then transferred to UofO to finish and graduate. He always regretted it and so he never tells anyone that he graduated from UofO. It's the skeleton in his closet ;)
