Today is my 43rd birthday! My husband came to the bedroom this morning with my favorite cheesecake and candles. Here’ a picture of me blowing the candles while trying to keep Fuwawa away from the cake. Sidra was still half asleep! Sidra and my husband then gave me their presents, and each has a story about their…

Sidra is ten years old today. Here he is blowing his candles and does a happy dance over the presents. This year, the kids at Sidra’s grade celebrate their tenth year of life at school. Parents and kids were asked to write a letter to each other and exchanged them at the school event. Here…

Here’s the hoodie that I made for my husband’s birthday! I just realized that this is the first thing that I made for him this year, and it’s already October! I guess I’ve been spending too much time making things for myself. He never complained though. I’m sorry honey! The pattern is McCall’s 6614, bought…

Last weekend we celebrated my husband’s 42nd birthday! I made him a jacket with hood (will be posted later) the day before and Sidra made him a drawing. It was a nice and quiet day just the way we love it. We biked in the morning to the lake in the neighborhood, bought oden (Japanese winter…

On my tenth birthday, I decided that I wanted to die before the age of forty. Yeah I was a strange little girl, I drew a tomb with my name on it and ravens flying over it. My mother was not amused when she found the drawing. At that time, forty seemed so far away,…

Thank you so much for all the sweet messages on my birthday post! I’m sorry if I couldn’t reply to all, but I read all the messages and they brought a warm feeling to my heart. Sidra was not feeling well and he didn’t go to school, while my husband was working at home, so…

I’m 39 years old today! … Some people has said that I look a little bit younger than my actual age. In fact, the reaction people made when I told them my age made me felt like I’ve just confessed a big lie. Of course I didn’t lie, I just didn’t see any opportunity nor…

2010 2010 = 40!

Today is my husband’s 40th birthday! Sidra and I had been thinking about a present for Papa, and he (sneakily) suggested that I should make a plush doll for Papa. Actually my husband likes plushies and other cute stuff, but he never bought one for himself because… , well, because he’s a grown man, I…
