The students studying Japanese at UAA, University of Alaska Anchorage, had an afternoon of Japanese food, green tea, Pikachu, Tai Chai and other activities to try or watch.
Being that my husband, David’s, Dad spent the first 11 years of his life in Japan because his parents were missionaries there., so David has always been interested in Japanese things. They even started a food co-op which the last we heard was still going.
I was looking at this calendar that my daughter had given me for Christmas this year. It was the year of the twins. It started out in January with a very pregnant daughter and in February the birth. Now 17 months later I can’t believe how they have grown. From being under 3 pounds at birth to over 20 pounds now.
Of course, we think they are the most adorable babies ever. Well I guess we have to call them toddlers now. They are such good little ones. I don’t remember my children being this good when they were little. Can’t say it was because they didn’t have anyone to play with because there was 5 of them. It could be that I am just older and more mellow.
Anyway thanks for taking time to look at our granddaughter’s, Beka and Kate.
David’s glasses had broken in the accident, one of the lenses shattered and the ear piece was broken beyond repair. Dan went by the house to get his other pair and Heather FedExed them to us at Sarah’s. We got to stay a few days longer and visit our granddaughters. I have always said that everything happens for a reason. If David’s accident happened because
I had the most wonderful Christmas this year. Four of my five children were here for Christmas and 8 of my 12 grandchildren were home. Then Heather also had her in laws and her brother in law at her house.
We had a gathering at our house on Christmas eve. We opened a few presents then with my grandson, Rickie, because he was working on Christmas day. The rest of us got to open one package which was new pj’s that Grandma got for everyone.
I have been babysitting my twin granddaughters, Becca and Kate, for the last few days. I love getting to do this. They are 9 months old now. They are totally different. I love watching as they get their own personalities. It is so wonderful to see the ways they are to be able to watch as they learn new things. To see the little smiles on their faces just melts my heart, so yes I am going to show you more photos that I took of them.
I know that you probably get tired of looking at photos of my beautiful granddaughters but here I go again. Oh yea, all my kids, well except the oldest, will be home for Christmas that means photos of more grandchildren so look out.
This was the girls first Halloween. I had to go out to the kids house to babysit, so Heather decided I should stay to take the girls out for their first Halloween. They are getting so big.
While babysitting the girls showed me how good they can make their bouncers go.
Before costumes Grandma decided to give them their first bath in the big tub. They really enjoyed this.
