Some pics from recent 'happenings', mostly from the 'shows' Kate has been involved in (our home's Christmas Parties, rogin-homu, etc.). Also a try at taking a family photo, as well as pics of our ginormous Christmas tree and our awesome manger scene, which you can't completely see, but at least the star made it in the photo!

Kate performing for our Christmas Party, she's sooo happy to get to do this!

Obviously a fail for a family photo..but can it get any better than this? We'll try again sometime...


New pics of the kiddos. Aren't they adorable? The first 2 are from a family day outing; we went to an autumn matsuri and the trees were just gorgeous. Next are some random shots of Kimberly (try and not notice the massive amounts of drool), and the last ones are from Katie's first show that she did. She enjoyed dancing with the older kids immensely and was very pleased with her tree 'crown' that she got to wear. Enjoy the pics!

Here's some more recent pics of the kiddos. They are all getting so big! Kristina is definitely the chubbiest and eats the most of the three (as you can tell). Katie has recently been complaining about having 'growing pains' at night (or so we've deduced), Aiki and I both suffered from growing pains at night for most of our childhood and we know how painful it is, so please pray that Katie doesn't have to go through it for long! Kimby refuses to drink from a bottle, so it looks like she will be our longest nursing baby! She walks very well in the walker, eats bananas and apples (dislikes yogurt greatly), and is getting slightly attached to mama. Kristy is talking up a storm and is going through her 'no' stage, while Katie is learning lots and likes to please mommy and daddy as much as possible.

Me and Kristy, after a Birthday party..wouldn't Kristy make such a cute ballerina!?!?
And here's Kimby looking like a tired granmother..haha

And here's the 3 girls in their matching sweaters...awww :)

While driving in the car listening to music...
Katie: Daddy, I want to hear the song "It's time to Learn"
Aiki: It's time to learn? What song is that?
Katie: You know Daddy, "It's time to Learn"
Aiki, thinking real hard: Oh, you mean this song? starts singing "It's time we start to love.."
Katie: Yes! That song! It's time to learn!

October Pics

Here are some photos from October of the kiddos. We've been doing good though we've had some sicknesses recently (pls continue to pray for Kimby's thrush and Kristy's canker sores to go away). Kristy is talking a whole lot more recently and Kate's been getting extra sneaky. Kimby's also growing up and gets bored often and needs lots of attention throughout the day. Christmas is coming up and Katie is looking forward to dancing with the older kids for the Christmas Performance this year (we'll see if she goes for it or not).

Kimby being a ballerinaCUTE!

Kristy doing 'nai nai, ba!'

Some face painting A.Jonah did.
And all 3 of them sweet :)

I figured I should post this before it got too late and lost it's 'meaning'...
I just wanted to say a huge thank-you to Alyx, not only for coming the to the school and helping with the kids day and night for a real looong stretch of time, but mostly for helping me to keep my sanity during the craziness of FDTP. If you didn't come over to help, I think I would've 'lost it' and wouldn't have been able to make it through that time. I'm reeeally reeeally going to miss you and hope that we will be able to chat sometime when you get back and that we won't become strangers to each other...I LOVE YOU! And Aiki, Katie, Kristy, and Kimberly do too.


...I haven't posted anything on this blog for over a month! September was crazily hectic with FDTP going on; not much time to breathe much less blog. I so wanted to keep on top of the laundry during Sept, however I failed in doing so and had Aiki do 6 large loads of laundry at the end of FDTP (poor guy). This was due in part to the fact that Kimberly has decided to be an 'emo' baby (as Aiki affectionately calls her) who screams whenever she gets offended, and screams for no apparent reason as well (which attracts puzzled and quizzical looks from everyone as they ask me "why is your baby screaming?" to which I reply "I have absolutely NO idea"..). Oh well! We've been happily having vacation (vacation=deep cleaning and organizing of room/closets), while our kids spent quality time with Aiki's parents (Matt/Praise=the best). My sister Alyx has been visiting from India as well, helping me with the kids during FDTP and helping me keep my sanity as well (Alyx=Godsent), Thanks Alyx! So here are some assorted pics from September;
