Parents' trip
My parents went to a trip in Japan.

They went to a part of Nagano pref. and it is famous of buckwheat noodle especially.

My Dad can make handmade buckwheat noodle at home, so he wanted to visit there for many years.

So his wish could came true and I recommend a few buckwheat noodle restaurant.

After they came back to home, Dad gave me a message about the trip.

But the buckwheat noodle restaurant could make Dad feel satisfaction enough, so I feel so sorry for him.

But most of their trip sounded nice and I felt that they enjoyed the trip.

After Dad's message, Mom gave me a message about their trip.

She enjoyed the trip with Dad and I am very happy for them to know their joyful trip from each message.

Anyway, I am very happy to know their trip by my parents' message...^^

I wish that my parents will enjoy their trip from now on as long as possible.

Mom's package
Today, I received Mom's package before noon.

Mom sent it for me about 4 days ago and it already arrived at my place.

She sent the package for me by express mail, so it arrived so soon.

The delivery man needed me to sign to the package, so I wrote my name to him.

I opened Mom's package and there were so many Mom's handmade Umeboshi (Japanese pickled plums) in a container.

I really can feel Mom's love for us and I really appreciate with her kindness.

So I made something David for his dinner to use her handmade Umeboshi.

I hope that he will enjoy it later...^^

Mom's Umeboshi
My mom usually makes handmade Umeboshi (Japanese pickles of plum) in every summer.

David and I love to eat her Umeboshi.

And this year, she made handmade Umeboshi again.

In this year, there were less fine sunshine days in this summer, so to dry Umeboshi was so hard to her.

But finally, her handmade Umeboshi could make and she sent us by express mail yesterday.

She gave her massage about it and I sent my reply to thank her a lot.

Her Umeboshi is really delicious and David and I really are thankful for her love to us.

Anyway, we are looking forward to arriving at her package soon...^^

Mom's love is so great for us that we never forget her love always.

Mom's call
Yesterday, Mom called me suddenly.

Usually, we send e-mail each other sometimes but calling is very rare.

So I was so surprised at he call yesterday afternoon.

But I was very glad to hear Mom's voice after some months.

And I was happy to hear Dad's voice, too.

David was not at home when Mom called me.

So David missed to talk to our parents and he wanted to talk to them so much.

Only a few minutes, we talked each other but it was nice time for us.

Anyway, I was so glad to talk to my parents through phone...I could feel their love.^^

Dad's new car
A few weeks ago, my Dad bought a new car and he told about it by his e-mail.

And yesterday, he gave me an e-mail and he started to use his new car these days.

So I asked him to take a picture of his new car.

And he sent the picture of his new car today.

He used an old car for many years because he really liked it.

But finally he changed a new car and he likes it, too.

His new car looks nice and it is very cool.

And he drives a car with pleasure and I hope that he enjoys driving it as long as possible.

I am very looking forward to riding on his new car when I visit my parents' home someday...^^

Skype with MOM
Last night, David and I talked to my parents through SKYPE before we sleep.

Yesterday was David's holiday and we got a great package from MOM last week so we wanted to tell our gratitude for MOM.

In Japan, it was around noon to start talking together and MOM looks so happy that we could show our happy smile together.

We ate dinner already and were in out FUTON before our sleeping during SKYPE.

Sometimes DAD came cross the camera of SKYPE but he has no time to talk to us.

Because MOM likes to talk much more than DAD and her talking never stop.

Dad is very less talker usually so just we enjoyed our SKYPE with MOM mostly together.

About 45 minuets, we talked together by SKYPE and David and I felt so happy that we could communicate each other before NEW YEAR.

Mom's great package gave us so much energy of LOVE and David & I are so happy to enjoy eating them after the arrival.

And Mom's love is always with us and MOM sounded very happy to make her package be happy & thankful for MOM a lot!!!

Mom tends to worry about us always but she doesn't say so much about her worries.

So we need to let MOM relived that we are happy together in Seattle as well as possible.

Anyway our SKYPE time was so great for both of us that we could feel so much LOVE from MOM and her happy energy before our sleeping time.

David was so surprised at Mom's talking about machinegun but we had a very fun time anyway.

And in this morning, the sunshine & blue sky could let us cheer up and happy again.

David and I had a great begging of our NEW DAY as usual as we do and we are so BLESSED now.

Anyway parents' LOVE can let our love become deeper and stronger than ever.

Our marriage life has many happenings every single day but I am sure that every day is getting better and better for great way of our RIGHT & PROPER direction...I can feel!!^^!!

I wish that your rest of this year (only about 10 days!!) will be wonderful with Blessing as much as possible!!

Yesterday was David's Dad's birthday.

And David's elder brother is the same birthday, too.

David's Dad became 85 years old yesterday and I am very happy for you.

David's Dad and David's brothers' family had a nice birthday party 2 days ago together.

And David & I didn't take part in the party but we are very happy for them to get together,

Last week, my grandmother passed away and she lived 96 years old.

And I was thinking of her after that but I don't want to feel sad too much.

David's Dad became 85 years old yesterday so David & I wish he will be able to live as long as possible.

I hope that he will enjoy his own life more than 100 years old...anyway I am very happy for their birthday yesterday...^^

Dad's birthday
In Japan, today is my Dad's birthday but in Seattle it is before his birthday today.

But to my DAD, I sent my birthday message to adjust his birthday in Japan before he wake up in this morning.

And Mom has another event to her friends today and she has already celebrated his birthday yesterday as his birthday EVE.

So it means that Dad will have a lonely birthday without MOM today.

But for them, it doesn't look matter with it at all.

To celebrate with someone's birthday is just important to express each heart.

And to do so much special things for someone's birthday is not always good at all.

For my Mom & Dad, they have a long story of marriage life and each birthday is not so much big event for them.

But I wanted to express my gratitude for Dad's happy birthday anyway and I sent my message to him.

And without him and Mom, I cannot exist in this world and his birthday has a meaning for me.

To be a old age doesn't not bad things at any ages and to get older means to be able to enjoy own life more than before.

And I just want Dad to enjoy his retirement life with Mom from now on with smile as much as possible.

Now I am with David at Seattle in U.S.A. and I have no plan to come back to home in JAPAN for a while.

But my Dad & Mom knows how happy I am with DAVID and I want them to understand my happiness with him without worry.

Dad & Mom has own pace to live together and they look enjoy each own life these days.

After they repaired their house, their life became more comfortable & enjoyable than before, for sure!

Soon many cherry blossom trees will let them feel new spring with warmth & beauty and they will enjoy it together!

David & I wish that Dad & Mom will live together as long as possible with smile & love always from now on...

Anyway we love my DAD and we are looking forward to seeing him again in JAPAN!^^

To vsist Dad's place & Mom's grave
Today David and I decide to visit his Dad's place and Mom's grave together.

We checked the weather of our way road to there and it will not be closed with so much snow in the mountain today fortunately.

After today, it will start to snow again and today looks the best timing to visit there together.

After long days of rainy days, we can see clear blue sky & great sunshine all way long to Dad's place.

More than 4 hours, we took a time to arrive at Dad's place in Richland.

Because we dropped at David's Mom's grave to pray for her today.

Her grave is still covered with a little snow and we couldn't find her gravestone.

But we know where it is certainly and we prayed for MOM for a while together.

And then we could feel so nice inside through this visit to her after her Mom's funeral service....

We really miss Mom and love her still now but we cannot let ourselves sink deep loss & sadness about her loss too much.

Dad is waiting for our visiting and we started to drive again.

We had a nice time together to talk a lot until his sleeping time.

We had a nice dinner together at fancy restaurant "Frost Me Sweet" with smile & lost of talking.

But we usually start to sleep around 7:00-8:00 p.m. at night and I felt sleepy after dinner suddenly.

Anyway we had a nice time together to talk each other for a while but after 4-5 hours driving, I was pretty tired.

I didn't drive a car at all but I kept sitting on the side seat all way long and it was too much stress for whole my body.

Just I need to take a rest enough and sleep well tonight to listen to my body's need & voice naturally.

But we have to visit David's elder brother's house to stay at their place tonight, so I wonder what time I am going to start to sleep tonight.><

Japanese rice cake (Mochi)
Today I got a package which Mom sent David & me MOCHI(Japanese rice cake).

Mom made it by herself and sent it for us to eat for New Year.

In Japan, to eat Mochi is traditional habit to make a wish for long & better life.

Usually Mom makes it and she knows David & I really like Mochi.

She used an express international mail to send it for us and it cost a lot.

Only 7 pounds Mochi needed to cost more than 60$ for shipping.

Of course, we can buy Mochi at some supermarket in Seattle but sending Mochi for us is Mom's love even the shipping costs a lot.

I was very happy to get it from Mom today and David will really love it later after he finish working.

Today is his the last working day in this year, so I will let him eat Mom's Mochi for dinner.

And I really appreciate with Mom's love for us so much.

Mom put on a simple message to us and it said, "Have a happy new year!!", that's all.

It was very simple message for us but it was all what Mom & Dad wish for our marriage life.

I sent a message for Mom to thank her by e-mail after I got her Mochi.

And I wonder what is the best gift for Mom & Dad in return from us...
