Merry Christmas!

Is it Christmas already?
December has been a busy month! 

Good thing this month is that warm weather
came back after cold November.

Bad thing is that I caught cold.
My nose won't stop running.

Fortunately, I'm almost over my cold.
Also, Goro & Niko are doing well :-)

Thank you always for your friendship! We wish
you all health, peace and happiness this
holiday season and in the coming New Year!

Christmas Lights

We used to have this Christmas tree.

But then, it got destroyed.

Don't worry, it wasn't plugged in and nobody
was hurt. We learned to cat-proof cords.

Presumption is based on his everyday doing

With no tree lights since then,
we had dark Christmas every year.

Well, I exaggerated a little bit.
Of course there were some lights.

But this year is different. My family-in-law
got this super cute tree as a present for us.

We put it on the top of entertainment center,
where Goro can't reach.

Then his Dad added lights around this
entertainment center behind shoji screen.

We call it
Goro-proofed Christmas tower :-)

We love how adventurous and curious Goro
is. We just want him and Niko to be safe.

Goro & Niko are bright lights in my life :-)



Have a safe and happy holiday season!

After Work

After a long day at work...

Goro! I missed you. Come here!


He always runs past me.

And gets all kind of excited.

While I prepare dinner, Goro takes his
ready-set-eat position.
Always makes me chuckle :-)

Happy Hour (nightly snack time) is
Niko's favorite time of the day.

OK, Niko. Let's go.

While I prepare snack, Niko sings
with his sweet, chocolate-covered voice.
Always makes me squee :-)

Every day is a happy day with Goro & Niko.
All the work stress goes away once I'm home.

Have a happy new week!

Open Top, Open Side

Goro & Niko love playing food game.

They gather around puzzle box when
it's about time for the game.

Especially Niko, who is usually reserved,
gets very energetic.

Niko = Food game master

He wants to play game with you, Katie san!

Fishing out of glass? Piece of cake!

Any shape of glass.

Goro often gets left behind...

Sorry for Goro, but 
I find his sour face very cute :-)

Don't worry. I make sure Goro
gets snack, too.


One day...

Instead of standing the glass as usual, I lied it
down. No particular reason, just for a change.

To my surprise...

Niko, go from the side.

Then came Goro!

It was interesting to learn their
strong and weak sides.

And sorry for Niko, but
I found his sour face very cute :-)

Don't worry. I make sure Niko
gets snack, too!

Food game is played under supervision and
kids always get the same amount of snack :-)

Toy Fish

While back (way back,) I saw this fish at
Stunning Keisha's fun post here. I was
fascinated and got one for Goro & Niko.

Come on, kids.
Mom got a fish for you.

Goro, don't fall.
(Though, it might make funny video if he does...)

Nothing, nothing.
(That was an evil thought!)

I love this fish. Entertaining for kids! Much
more fun than the dancing fish I got earlier.

* Switch on *

It was COMPLETELY ignored.


Here is Niko with his big fish :-)

We fish...wish you all a happy new week!
