Merry Christmas!

For Christmas dinner, I made a fresh spinach, cabbage, tuna salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots and sesame dressing. It was quite yummy! On Christmas day, we ventured into Hanazono and took our group photo at the bell.
The women of SWAT!
Hanazono's 308 restaurant had the platypus mascot playing with Dylan.
I enjoyed my Christmas crab ramen there.
It was - 15 degrees Celsius that day! Brrrrrrr........
The Asahi Shinbun covered three days of news, even the one for the 26th which hadn't yet happened.
Christmas morning was great fun with the kids. We opened gifts and also had a White Elephant Gift Exchange. Russ bought a boob ball at the halfway bus stop. Dylan really liked it but it was stolen by Logan.
Peter bought Russ a package of corn and huge shiitake mushrooms which we ate for dinner that night.
Mitchell got blueberry yogurt for Christmas! Nice!
I bought Russ a reindeer ornament which farted "Deck the Halls". This was an especially popular gift.Christmas morning started with some wrestling in the tatami room.
