Melina One Year Party

Filed under: — Andy @ 1:45 am

We had a small home party for Melina’s one year birthday. We made Sekihan and other foods that symbolize happiness and good luck. We also got a big block of Mochi (一升餅), which is about 2KG, and followed the Japanese tradition to strap it to the one year old and have her walk with it. I also did the American tradition and made her a cake she could smash up play with and possibly eat. Finally we tried to see what kind of person she will be based on what item she gravitated towards. The abacus was in interesting choice.
