Happy Birthday Jadyn!

A little over a year ago, we were fortunate enough to run into a family that had recently adopted from China at a pizza parlor (kids eat free on Wednesday, guess what day it was). When we met them they had been home for just two weeks. And to add to the coincidence, Jadyn is from the same province as Hannah. They both come from Nanchang, China. We have kept in touch every since and we were invited to Jadyn's second birthday party. Hannah had a great time playing with scarves, playing the drums, dancing and playing the Hungry Hungry Hippo game. Hannah has been talking about it ever since. And she demonstrates such restraint while playing the game, it is impressive. Instead of banging the tar out of the lever to get the marbles, Hannah just methodically pushes the lever. This technique proved to be pretty successful since she always seemed to have the most marbles. No worries, Hannah is getting Hungry Hungry Hippos for Christmas. Is there a Hungry Hungry Hippos tournament?
