The party began with a review of some vocabulary words, Andy let me keep my honorary title of "Human Dictionary" (which he gave it to me) even though I didn't know two of the words he had.
Anna was in charge of the ice cream cake this year. She chose a fine Baskin Robbins Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream cake. I had the incredible honor of cutting the cake. Finally. A real job at the party.
Partiers assembled: Christian and Min
There's Art over there. Deal or No Deal was a nail biter, by the way.
Jeff enjoying his first Andy Birthday...who knows if this would have been possible if Collin still lived out here (Andy's pretty particular about his super-exclusive guestlist and not making his mom do too much work...and may I add here that this year's Chinese feast was the finest yet?)
John, captivating Art. Family Feud was kind of snoozers.
And here's a video of the singing of Happy Birthday. This should have you feeling like you were right there, in the action. You'll love it, unless you're awful.
Wait, I didn't make a post for Andy's Birthday in 2008? That's terrible.
This year's was the best one though. Very cheerful and convivial.
