Dear Blogger

Dear Blogger,

Can I just tell you how much fun I have had with you? You have helped me meet so many people, you have helped me connect with people when I needed them most. You let me showcase my crafting achievements, you let me brag as a new Mama. You were wonderful.

Normally when you break up, you use the "It's not you, it is me," line. Well, I can't do that. Because it is you. It isn't me. I have been silently agonizing over the hiccups and glitches for the past few months. You promised me that it would get better with time. Sadly, you failed to live up to your promise. I just can't deal with your crazy ways anymore.

I have to be strong, like my pal, Deece. She has shown me that I don't have to live like this anymore.

My forwarding address is: atreehuggerswife.wordpress.com Please tell anyone that may ask about us.

Family in Japan

Here are our family pictures from Japan. I realized while going through these that we aren't terribly adventurous in our picture taking. Get your mind out of the gutter, you perv! I am talking about fun, silly shots with BTH and different poses. Or at least making the peace sign like the Japanese people do when they get their picture taken. Will try harder next time!

Kiyomizu Temple

At a Temple near Ueno Zoo in Tokyo. We did go to Ueno Zoo in Tokyo and got to see the famous Panda, Ling Ling. Well, we saw Ling Ling's lovely backside...she wouldn't turn around to see us.

Yay! Snow! We saw a lot of snow. BTH wasn't too sure about it at first, but he really liked. Good thing since he is headed to Alaska in 4 months.

BTH was konked out at the Showa Daibutsu.

At the Hirosaki Lantern Festival.

Deer Park at Todai-ji Temple in Nara. These deer were ruthless if you were holding something edible. I was a sucker and bought the "Deer Cookies" (which totally smelled like the south end of a north facing dog) for 150 yen. I tried my best to get lots to the baby, but the others would actually bite at me to get at them. After about 2 bites to my touchas, I was done.

BTH loved his hat and mittens for the first few days...then I think that he got sick of being on the go and would cry when we put his hat on him.

At the New Sanno Hotel in Tokyo.

At the park in Tokyo.

BTH got to wear the sweater that I knit for him! I was so excited that it fit him like a glove.

We rented a stroller from the hotel for one day. I love this picture. The other ones of this same shot he totally looks bored and ready to move on.
