Getting Ready for New Year's

There wasn't much time to rest after we came back from our trip to visit Ah Mah and Ah Gong. That night mommy's friend from school came over with her family for dinner. They played with me and Aki and our toys while the grownups talked and talked!

The next day we went over to Aunty Hattie's house for mochi making.

A short nap later and Uncle Jeff's family came over for dinner.

It's been a busy week getting ready for New Year's and there's still New Year's to come!

Actually, the last picture I was playing a previous recording of Aki with her harmonica. When I showed her the video, she picked up her harmonica and started "playing a duet" with was cute.
