Amelia's Birthday!

Amelia's birthday dinner took place at our usual birthday dine-in, Wasabi with the gang and then it was back to our house for cake time. It was the first time Pete and I had people over for an event. The realization of home ownership really kicked in more when you have people over and we were at the top of our voices on a weekday evening! Minus the short interruptions by the Amherst Police Department (our taxpayers money at work!), about a neighbor on the next street calling in about someone who parked a construction vehicle and walking in between the houses into our street - we had a jolly great time. See for yourself!

Wedding Shower - Hye Yon & Nathan

We haven't seen Hye Yon since her move to DC and this time we got to meet her fiancé, Nathan. Hye Yon's sister Hye Lim was gracious enough to host a wedding shower for them in Rochester so that some of us in WNY can meet up with the husband and wife to be.

Congratulations to Hye Yon and Nathan!

Thanks to Bethany and Jonathen for making dinner reservations and pick-ups.

Spring is really here!

I posted a sneak peak of our new home earlier...

Our new home

... am re-posting it (picture was taken March 26th before we closed on the house) here again with a new picture below of the outside of the house taken this morning.

Our new home

The 'umbrella' plant outside our house is sprouting leaves and that was our official proof that spring is indeed here. Thanks to April showers, we don't need to be watering the grass, plants, etc. The daffodils are already up and we think we see some tulips buds trying to push through the earth :)

We had a lot of people over for Easter at the Milizia home front - 22 in total. There were plenty of food as always and this year, there were some feisty competition with deviled eggs. It was home team Milizia vs. team Visitors. Thanks to Jimmy and his new toy - most of the pictures below are taken by him and some snapped away by me!
