Thanksgiving this year, we invited Ellie's school friends to our house for dinner. They were Japanese and they didn't know what Thanksgiving is all about, so it was fun introducing our tradition.


This year, Haruyo got 17lb turkey for her birthday gift! (Thanks, Jennifer!!!) We cooked it with the recipe "Perfect Turkey" from Martha and it turned out pretty good. Our guests had never seen turkey that big, so they were so thrilled.

今年は、お友達のジェニファーから、お誕生日プレゼントに、と9kgの七面鳥をいただき(ありがとう!)、今回はマーサ・スチュワートのレシピを使ってローストしてみました。手間はかかりましたが、なかなか上手に焼け、大満足です。This is the whole table with other dishes. We certainly enjoyed our meal and had a great time with our friendship. We are thankful for all we have!

Sad litte birthday cake, lots of love


Haruyo's Birthday Cake. I know that it looks like blue berry muffins, but that is what her husband was able to make. Haruyo's husband is extremely happy that Haruyo is his wife and mother of their 3 beautiful children. Hauryo did get a new bicycle for her birthday.

Noah in His Captain Chair

Noah is almost 1 year old. His recent favorite spot is to climb up in his captain chair... We'll have to get a child lock for this drawer very soon. Until then, he can enjoy being in his captain chair.
