Here are the kids. The ornaments tower over the tree. M picked out the pink Christmas tree, N picked out the blue Santa, W picked out the bunny, A picked out the wreath.
We are seeing these "gummy" decorations all over. M made a wreath...
... and N made good use of candy canes, holly and stars!
We got them Santa hats last week on our quest for Christmas lights and decorations. We also have seen some good lights; these are near Doshisha University:
and here we are inside the Teramachi arcade (covered shopping district downtown)
also, we got haircuts!
I can't believe we've been here 4 months already. Sometimes it seems like the time has flown by, and other times (like when the kids are screaming about how they don't want to go to school) it seems to be dragging on. Next summer will be here before we can believe it, I know. I am trying to enjoy and savor every moment.
