Here are some photos from last family day. There was some kind of event at this rest stop thingie place...They had this ultra-mini locomotive which Katie just loved (which Aiki and I barely fit on).





We had an awesome dress up thingie for our Feast Celebration...probably one of the best dress-ups we've had here. Everyone was really creative and came up with some cool costumes. The theme was "couples" as you can obviously see. We had prizes for the 3 "best" couples (exemption from "all hands on deck" dishes that night) with Aiki, Yuka, and Miki being the judges (they organized the whole ending celebration thingie). I'm sure it was pretty exciting with each "couple" doing a little presentation for everyone...I could hear everyone laughing and clapping from the kitchen. The food was great...all my favorite things (which is why I chose to have them on the menu..haha). Big hand to Shun, Nao, and Nozo who did the lion's share of the work as opposed to me trying to be a help waddling around our massive slippery kitchen (why am I so big at 5 1/2 months???). Anyways, enjoy the photos. I hope no one here minds that I'm posting them..well, if any of you see your photo here and don't want it up, just let me know and I'll take it down.
-The 3 "winners":
Jeremy and Steve as John Smith and Kokoum (and Nozo as Pocahontas...they asked her to join to make their team a bit more "complete"...)


John and Okasan as Teru teru bozus (hmm..is that how you would write it?)
James and Josh as Brian and Cormac (James' costumes was pretty awesome..you can't really see the whole thing in this photo)
-The next 3 were my favorites (though I think Steve's team was probably the best...)
Marie and Tabitha as Kuzco and Pacha from "Emperor's New Groove"

Kazu and Aika as the Apostle Peter and the "Holy spirit"...As you can see, in one photo Peter is praying for the spirit and in the other photo the "spirit" descends upon him.

Taka and Kastuya as Horace and Jasper from "101 Dalmations"

Mary and Jan as Watcher and Haven
Matt and Stacie as God and the Holy Spirit
Shinji and praise as an antichrist soldier and Heaven's Girl
These 2 "couples" (Maria, Emi, Meg, and Sophie) teamed up to be Cinderella, and the wicked step-mother and sisters. Poor Katie really wanted that purple shoe and kept trying to get it while they were trying to do their presentation...
Nao and Hiromi as a Chef and "food"
Yuki and Yuka as Pinnochio and Fairy
Jerusha and Ken as Napoleon's Wife and Napoleon
Otosan and Phoenix (puurrrty!!) as Jesus and His bride
Elia and Miki as a frog and a princess
And lastly..Aiki and Georgi as Black and White. Poor Katie was horribly frightened of "papa" in his get-up. She was pretty scared of James as Brian too..Actually tonight she was freaking out crying during bed-time because of the "scary people" as she calls them. I've never seen her so scared...I'm praying this fear doesn't last.
And some photos of the FOOOD! Chocolate cakes I made...this one looks a bit "diseased"...haha. As you can tell I'm not too into decorating...

Shun made the sandwiches (which is why they look so nice...) and pasta, Nao was the champion "fryer" with the fries and kara age (AND..the coffee jello), Nozo made that awesome looking bread, and I did the cake, salad, and h'oderves and chips (like I said...the sissy work)

Okasan had her birthday on the 17th of this month, so we had a little celebration for her. It was simple but very sweet...GB Otosan and Okasan. Here's a few photos from the event...

The matcha cake I made. It was very...green. Too bad I didn't take a photo of it cut so you could really see how green this cake was...
Sweetie Kristy falling asleep during the singing
She's sooooo cute!

Here`s some pics from last night..
We had our "Treasure the Treasurers" event; a little late, I know, but it kept getting post poned for different reasons, and we figured better late than never. It was great. Hiromi and Kazu cooked for us and we all ate at Lydia`s. The food was soooo good, thanks you guys!! We were served dish after dish and drink after drink, and after all that there was done and eaten a huge cake and tons of ice-cream was served. Big thanks to Hiromi, Kazu, Josh, Steve, Stacie, Phoenix, and John for cooking, setting-up, serving, cleaning up, and for the music. Also, big thanks to Kazu for watching our kids so we could eat in peace :).
The incredibly massive ice-cream that was served Our entertainment for the night
