All in the picture

It’s rare that my entire family gets together. My sister lives in Texas which makes visits tough. This holiday we had one of those rare chances.. a few very cherished days. My younger sister mandated we get a “Family Photo”. With freezing temps and 5 hyper active grandchildren I was bracing for a high-stress gathering. It was cold and there was some chaos as you can tell– but in the end we were all laughing and so happy that we found the time to capture this time together. Photos by Kai.

2014 has already been magical!

We’re only a couple days into the new year and it’s been wonderful. Spent with family and snow!







Samoa Cookie as a cake?

We celebrated my father’s 60th birthday with the things he’s grown to love the most: family and Korean food! He also is a big fan of cookies… and like most Americans will never turn down a good Girl Scout treat. My sister Tricia is an excellent cook and baker and is always up for trying new recipes. After she saw this Samoa cookie inspired cake.. she thought the big birthday was a perfect day to give it a try. In the end my dad approved and even had a nice hibiscus shirt to match the theme! Happy Birthday DAD!

For the fathers

I hope all the dads out there enjoy this Sunday set aside just for them! It’s extra special for us since we’ll be celebrating our first Father’s Day.

… and a very big thank you to dad and papa for loving us so much.


My Imperfect Family

So my older sister Tricia who lives in Texas was visiting for the last couple weeks. We don’t see her often and never know when the next chance will be. With that,  we of course had to seize the opportunity for family photos that are absolutely unofficial and unprofessional in every way. God Bless the digital camera and it’s ability to reveal who we really are.

Um.. which one of you needed to go out?

Something does not belong

Frame-able At Last!

Sad how time flies…

but what beautiful new things it brings along the way


When the 3 year old niece is in town armed with her sticker book you can’t say no when she says “I decorate you.”

Niece's new doll.. has INTESTINES!

Some 3 year olds get barbies… my neice gets a 4D Human Anatomy Model Puzzle..intestines and all, ew.  See the hilarious video below.

She's 3!

Birthday shout out to my beautiful niece Caelyn Chin who turns 3 today! She’s grown so much over the last few years…

Pick of the Day: Auntie Jenny Kim helps kick it

My niece Caelyn was visiting from Texas so you could imagine her obsession with the snow. Most kids wanna touch it, taste it maybe throw it. Not Caelyn— she had a kicking obsession. Everywhere we went she was a kickin’ machine.  Auntie Jenny Kim made sure the pretty pink boots didn’t leave too far off the ground.

Pick of the Day: Auntie Influence

Yesterday I said goodbye to my 2 year old niece .. but not with out an appropriate ‘Angie’ farewell.  What better way to send her off than with a little shopping.  My observation tells me she’s gonna be a pro! Go Caelyn, make Auntie proud!
