Tricky Treat!

Hana went to “Tricky Treat” with her gal pals today. Their initial fear of walking into shops by themselves and
talking to strangers was quickly overcome once they realized candy was involved…


Halloween isn’t quite as much fun when you can’t walk, chew, or voice your costume preferences, I suppose…
Hang in there, Kiki!


Next year will be our last chance to go as the Norimaki family from Dr. Slump.


Shichi-Go-San Hana

We signed Hana up for the Shichi-Go-San ceremony at Japan Society, mostly
to get her dressed up in a kimono. She was not happy about it… the overall effect
was that of an Edo-era street urchin (note the bare feet and loosened belt).
