Twas the day after Christmas, and here in Japan
Kohaku's first Christmas went just as planned.
The stocking was set right next to the tree
(They're almost exactly the same size, you see).
Inside were gifts from Grandma Colleen,
With love from Oregon, where the stocking had been.
The tree itself was "fiber optic" white,
Kohaku was thrilled with the twinkling lights.
Christmas Eve is the time when the Japanese play.
They don't really care about "Christmas the Day."
In Japanese tradition, KFC we ate
The holiday bucket comes with a decorative plate.
After the chicken was finished, then came the cake,
Which my husband orde
Well, things haven't gone quite as planned. Of course!
Being a mommy is still taking a great deal of my time. However, I do have some news. I've started a photo blog staring my little boy, as we experience life in Japan together. If you have a chance, take a look, comment, etc!
I hope you can check it out, and let me know what you think... the little man and I have lots of adventures before us.
For those of you who have been missing my photos and such, I hope this will keep you company until I can get back to my usual photos and Renji's blog!
Phew! Long time no see!
I feel like I've been away forever :snowing:
I have good news... December 9th, 2012, my son was born! :squee: He is a health, happy little guy, and for the last three months, I've been only taking care of him. Now he is well settled into life at home, and I'm starting to try to get back to my routine.
I'd like to thank everyone for sticking with me through my long long absence. I'm still not sure how often I can be on line, but I'll do my best (I'm still learning to juggle mommy time and my time). I can't wait to seen what everyone else has been up to, as well!
It's May 27th which means it's that time of the year again and your special day is here! We hope you have an awesome day with lots of birthday fun, gifts, happiness and most definitely, lots of cake! Here's to another year!
Many well wishes and love from your friendly birthdays team
