What I Have Done For The Last Week

SHINNEN AKEMASHITE OMEDETOU GOZAIMASU!!! Happy Happy New Year! 2012 has come to you and me! I'd like to say thank you to those of you who frequently visited this blog last year. This year also, I hope that we can all share a fun time and nice ideas together through bentoing! I actually did not have a chance to make bento since the last post. Maybe I'll make some bento about a week later. So today's post has photos I've taken for the last week. I hope everyone enjoy them with me!

This is what I saw in the Christmas morning.

Our Christmas cake this time. I'm a bit proud of my chiffon cake hehe.

Yuppi and her best friend made a gingerbread house for the first time ever at her English school. The house base was prepared beforehand by the school. Its taste wasn't our type, but they really enjoyed assembling and decorating the little house. 

*Is Santa coming?..*

I feel so blessed because I had some Santa Clauses this time who gave me such hearty presents. I got a Christmas card from my great bento pal, Heather at Ohayo Bento, which put a smile on my face. Thank you Heather!

In the meantime, my cookie meister tofugirl at Open Mouth Insert Cookie sent us a super lovely gift! Way back, I actually said to her that I hoped to have her cookies because she'd made wonderful baked goods each time! So she granted my wish in time for Christmas! Thank you tofugirl!!

Yum yum.... Matcha flavored shortbread cookies and cinnamon ones. How cute they are!?!? They were really so good that we and Moxy already ate all up haha!

Yuppi is very happy with Moxy!

Here are presents that my sweet little Santa selected for me. I sent her a cute backpack, a muffler and a pair of gloves.

The New Year's Eve night was too beautiful not to take a photo.

Actually, the rest of the family have left for Sapporo by train to see relatives yesterday.

So now I'm savoring my own time at home.
Happy tea time

Look! this is my dinner today yay! Haha just joking! It's a fake ebi fry teishoku that I found at the front of the restaurant in the station!

I like this one much better!
