Christmas Greetings from Kyoto! We planned to come here on Sunday after church in Tokyo, so to let the kids have a chance to play with their toys we opened our presents early on Saturday (good excuse, right?) The next day, Tomomi was down with a stomach virus. Either that or she should have stayed away from some of the leftovers that she was trying to clear from the fridge before our trip. Anyway, she recovered that evening so we made the trip yesterday, Christmas Eve.
It's nice to be with Tomomi's parents. We are relaxing and enjoying great hospitality and food.
I went for a run this morning and found an area where it looks like the farmers are having a scarecrow contest. Myt favorite is the scarecrow in a traditional kimono. I'll take my camera next time and post some photos. I don't have much time to write now--gotta help the kids with their bedtime routine--but wanted to wish a very Merry Christmas to anyone who may read this.
Peace on earth and goodwill to men!
