2007 Christmas


This year is Ellie's 2nd and Julia's first Christmas. On Christmas eve night, we got milk and cookie ready for Santa. The Christmas morning, we all got together under the tree and opened the presents! It was a chaos, but girls had a lot of fun.

今年はエリは2回目、ジュリアははじめてのクリスマス。イヴの夜にサンタさん用にちゃーんとミルクとクッキーをダイニングテーブルに置いて、みんなで寝ました。そしてクリスマスの朝!ツリーにいくとちゃーんとサンタさんからのプレゼントがありました!

Ellie is quite happy with her "Alphabet Pal"
エリは、アルファベットフレンド。
Julia received a bouncy Tigger! (Many thanks to antie Nicole!!) However, Juila seemed to be interested in wrapping paper and boxes more. ジュリアはティガーです。が、ジュリアは、ラッピングペーパーや箱での遊びに夢中になっておりました。
By the way, Daddy got Wii Supermario Galaxy and he is quite happy about it.

Merry Christmas!

Ellie likes eye drop??

Ellie does not like eye drops at all. But strange thing happened today and she wanted to have eye drop before she went to bed. I'm still not sure what that meant...

Ellie's Palette Christmas Presentation

video


Ellie had a wonderful Christmas presentation at Palette. She was an elf and sang Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in Japanese in front of all the moms and dads.
エリのパレットクリスマス発表会でした。小人さんにばけてキラキラ星を元気に歌いました。

At the end, Santa came to give presents to all the children. Well, this Santa awfuly looks like someone we all know. Must be his bowl full of jelly.
最後にサンタさんが登場。このサンタさん、誰かにすっごく似てるけど…。

Ellie pooped in a potty again!

This morning, right in the busy time of the day and we were about to leave, Ellie decided to tell Mom and Dad that she wanted to poop. We hurried and took her to the potty and guess what!? SHE DID POOP IN THE POTTY! Daddy and Mommy were soooo proud of Ellie!

beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We got our Christmas decoration up! The sad thing about our Christmas tree is that we have all our ornaments on Ellie and Julia's unreachable zone, which is upper portion of the tree. It was very sad to see the bear tree bottom.
今年のクリスマスデコレーションは、結構早めに飾りました。しかーし・・・エリとジュリアがイタズラしてしまうので、オーナメントがツリーの下部に飾れないのです。かなしひ・・・。


Julia joined in our family this year and we didn't haver her stocking ready. So, she's got a little tiny one for this year. We'll have a decent one for her next year.
ジュリアは今年誕生したので、クリスマスストッキングがまだありません。(おまけに今年は家族で12月は風邪のためダウンで、用意ができなかったのよ。)だから、ジュリアのはとりあえず小さい雪ダルマです。来年はみんなと同じサイズのものを飾りますので、待っててね♪

Phil & Ted e3

This stroller has been serving us REALLY good. As you see, it can take 2 kids and works PERFECT! We're really happy about this stroller.

このベビーカーは、とても便利に使っております。ニュージーランド、Phil & Teds社のe3というモデルなのですが、とっても便利です。なんといっても二人乗りオプションでしょう。写真での二人乗り以外にも、新生児対応で、下をフラットにした二人乗りオプションもあるのです!!
タイヤが大きいので運転しやすさも◎!こどもが2人いるママさんに超おすすめアイテムです。ジュリアが生まれたときに購入したのですが、買ってよかった~!あまりに素敵すぎて、バッグやレインカバー等付属品も購入しております。
横幅がちょっと広いので、電車移動の際はご注意です。

Ward Christmas Party

2nd Ward Christmas party theme was "Nativity" and we dressed up like nativity scene. Ellie was a shepherd. Julia was an angel (only if you notice little wing on Julia's back).
教会のクリスマスパーティーです。今回はイエス・キリストの誕生時の服装だったので、エリは羊飼い、ジュリアは天使になりました(一応じゅじゅの背中には羽が・・・)。
Kana-chan and Shuhei-kun came and we had so much fun!
かなちゃんと修平くん達が遊びにきてくれました。
Ellie is scared of Santa for some reason. She would not get any close to him at all...
エリはサンタが怖いのです・・・。
Julia was unlike Ellie and had fun on Santa's lap.
じゅりあはえりとちがって怖くないようで、サンタさんのおひざに。

Ellie can peepee in the potty.

Ellie can now pee in the potty successfully most of the times. But she still has a little issue when it comes to poopoo. Once in a while she can poop successfully in the potty, but she needs a little more practice...
Pictures definitely not available.
