heavy sigh…


dec. 25, late in the afternoon…. the presents have been unwrapped the kids are playing happily and i have had just a few too many cookies….. all in all a good day!!!

the tree in all it’s glory…
waiting to open presents
bring on the batteries…



oh, the 29th we’ll be leaving for Miyazaki, stopping on the way down and back up to camp… and staying 2 nights in Miyazaki.   I will spend this week getting ready and packing and stuff.  I am looking forward to the blue moon on the 31st and wonder where we will be staying…. hopefully near a temple so that i can join in the ringing of the bell 108 times to bring on the new year….the year of the tiger…. Kayla’s year….
