Winding Down

I know a few of you have been wondering if I'm still here. I'm happy to say that I survived my busy week. And with only one migraine.

I'm pretty sure I got an "A" on my Japanese final.

I didn't fall in my "Thriller" ice skating performance.




My son's 6th birthday went smoothly. The cake that I made was a big hit. In case you're not familar with Super Mario Brothers, the cake is the 1-up mushroom.

Today I wrapped presents and prepared packages to send to my in-laws in Japan.

I am looking forward to having a week with my kids in school and no classes for myself. Santa still has a some shopping to do! Then I'm going to hibernate until June.

Your last statement: you are going to hibernate til June I think not. Those little boys are not going to allow that. Sounds like you did an excellent job this week, congrats!

Yeah for making it through the week! The cake looks AWESOME! I bet your son adored it. I think you are well deserving of a long nap.

Yea for surviving a hectic week. An A in Japanese sounds hard to manage. Great job! And that cake looks fantastic. :) Happy birthday to your 6 year old.

Funny in my mind said...

Fabulous cake! You are talented.
I am curious, what do the in-laws want or get for Christmas?
Is it different in Japan or do they celebrate the same?

I would like to hibernate until June, too. :)
