Day 365: "All done"

My sweet baby - January 2010
My big boy - January 2011
"All done", one of kiddo's favorite sayings. Well, that's what this blog is - ALL DONE! I set out to take a picture a day for 365 days. Although, I may not have followed it to a tee I feel pretty good about what I accomplished. The pictures above were taken a year apart. I love looking back and watching kiddo grow from a sweet baby to a walking, talking toddler. We've had a fun year and look forward to many more to come! I hope you've enjoyed this blog. Feel free to continue to follow us at A Mess of Happiness!

Day 364: Better late than never

I'm sure everyone has been dying to know where I've been and why I haven't finished this blog (especially when the finish line is in sight)? Well folks, it's been a helluvacrazy couple of months. I've been struggling to find time to post to my blog(s). If anyone has any suggestions or answers on how to actually achieve work-life balance please feel free to share! the old saying goes, "better late than never". Here are a few pictures from the past month.

I swear they are both Steelers fans.
I am usually pretty cautious when it comes to posting pictures of myself. This one is pretty funny. It was taken at the NHL All-Star Fan Fair. It's my don't-mess-with-TokyoMama-game-face.

Back in the day my hottie hubby played hockey. Although, he was not a goalie he does look mighty fine in the spidey helmet.
Kiddo loves to sweep. Seriously. I didn't even have to show him how. He's a natural.
Kiddo loved hanging out with his uncles. We were so happy that Ry could visit with us after the holidays.

Day 363: Just Dance or Just Laugh?

or how about both? These blurry pictures were taken on New Year's. We've had so much fun playing Just Dance 2 (the latest and greatest for Wii). I haven't seen moves like these since the good ole' days of the Old Bar. I apologize for the horrible picture quality, but the boys were shakin' their you can see...

Day 362:So long, farewell...

Mom, dad and kids hit the road early this morning. We had a great time catching up this week. It's hard to believe that it may be 6 months or so before we see them again. Ugh. 
Mom is going to kill me - please note that this picture was taken very early :)

Day 361: Happy New Year!

Every year we celebrate Japanese New Year at my Bachan's. I cannot think of a better way to ring in the New Year than spending time with my family and feasting on motherland fare!
