Sachiko-san's Birthday

It was our good friend Sachiko's birthday recently. She had wanted to come bring a late birthday gift for Mika, so we surprised her with a cake. Hey, any excuse for more cake, right? Anyway, it was nice to do something for her, since she is always blessing us in some way.

The girls helped make these chocolate lollipops.

Mika Turns 2!

Mika turned two years old today.

Emi, 4, says she is twice the girl that Mika is.

Okay. I made that last part up.

We had a simple party at home.

Emi helped make some cupcakes:

Then we opened some presents!

Some books from Grandpa and Mimi:

(The jacket is from Auntie Lisa)

Some clothes from Baba:

But her favorite present were these "squeaky shoes" from Emi:

We are so thankful for our two girls!

They made these cards at preschool.
