more traditions...

...I love the idea of having the kids choose from their toys to give away, to a second-hand store or toy drive...make room for the new toys...also, for one of our extended family parties, we have a theme each year. This year was Japan as my baby brother just returned from a church mission there. We ate Japanese Pancake (okonomiyaki), two soups (soybean-miso), Japanese sweets (Satsumaimo potatoes-yams), and "Japanese Christmas Cake." Fun!

I'm glad you sent your blog address in your e-mail. I was reading all of your entries. How fun. Phil was very creative on the pumpkin. WOW!!!! I'm going to have to show that to Mat. He has fun with pumpkins too. :)

How fun! But where was the yakisoba? I also love the idea of giving toys away to make room for the new. Another great tradition.
