Christmas with Bachan and Jichan was on New Years Eve this year. Since I had surgery on Dec 19th in Phoenix and it was our year to be with my Mom - post op appointment was on Dec 28th, it only made sense to stay in Phoenix the whole time so we did. That just pushed back Christmas with Bachan and Jichan - we felt bad that this would mean they'd be all alone, but we are quite lucky they are the most accomodating people ever and they never said a word about it. We're SO lucky to have the close by.
Bachan and Jichan thought Sakura needed a trampoline so that's what she got! Not one of the tiny ones, but a larger one that she will love once Daddy assembles it!
Sakura really enjoyed opening gifts, so there was another few things Bachan had me pick up for her - clothes :) Gotta love clothes, but first there was a ride on the pony.....
Inai Inai Baa....with wrapping paper
And then with Jichan :)
She actually LOOKED at me for a picture...that's rare these days, she will deliberately turn around normally!
This is ALWAYS the way Sakura puts on sunglasses....upside down, and when she puts them on me, same thing - upside down.
They don't quite sit right upside down, so you have to hold them on!
