Big Update

Sorry I haven't updated in a while. And lately all of my postings have been lazy ones. So here it goes:
On Saturday the 21st, there was a stake music festival at Nakano. My mom was playing the piano for our ward, and they didn't have enough people to sing, so me and dad went while Tashi watched Mia and Noah at home. When we finally got there, we barely had any practice time! We only went through the song once - and a lot of people were recruited for the day like me because there wasn't enough people, so for people like that it was hard. Luckily I sang soprano so it was the melody. I was pretty nervous and I felt like I stood out...and it was all over fast. I wanted to hang out more afterwards with Maika and stuff, but mom and dad wanted to hurry and go home. On the way home we stopped at Dominos Pizza for dinner. They took our order and told us it would be ready in 15 minutes. So we waited in the car, but when I went to pick it up, they told us they made it wrong and would have to make it over again. It would take another 10 minutes. Mom had to be all embarassing and huff over and over and then just run to the car. We finally got our pizza, and they gave us 2 free gifts - a 1.5 liter of Coke and a liter of green tea. GREAT! That really helped us.
Sunday the 22nd, we went to church as always, but people from the stake were visiting. Sunday School and Young Womens was packed! And after church we got to watch the movie that we filmed 2 weeks ago. But Bishop Kawaminami added music, put the scenes together, added clips from other movies, credits, an opening, and bloopers. It was so good - we were laughing our heads off. If this was a contest, we would so win! But he said he wasn't even done - I don't know how it could get any better! I can't wait until it's all the way done!
Monday the 23rd was Mom's 3_th birthday! Happy Birthday Mommy!
We took purikura with Mia and Noah, but it there were complications and it wasn't sent to the right email address so I never got it. You'll have to see it in my purikura-cho! We had a family party that night - mom had a chocolate cake with cream-cheese frosting. Yummy!! But I think I'm allergic to it because it makes me itchy when I eat it. I gave mom some coupons for her birthday (like I'll give you a 15 minute massage or I'll do the laundry for you) I know it's free - but that's what she wanted. I also gave her a Napoleon Dynamite birthday card that people in the ward had signed. It said - May your wildest dreams come true - on the inside.
Today my dad took the day off of work to hang out with mom, but neither of them felt good so it didn't really work. They went to the chiopractic doctor together and were going to go out to lunch, but the doctor took so long, they didn't have time and just came home instead. As a family we watched "Not One Less" - a Chinese movie that my dad gave my mom as a birthday present. It was good. Then mom took me and Tashi out to Denny's for dinner. I got so stuffed! After that we went shipping for the business and bought mom some saltine crackers - it was an emergency!
Oh yes, the baby looks like this right now (my mom's 9 weeks pregnant) -

He or she is 1 inch (2.5cm) long now - it's so big! Keep growing!

Oh yes, and it's exactly 1 week 'til Halloween, so here's a couple of Halloween icons.

I liked the sound effects in The Movie, as well as the slow motion, car chases, and Nobuaki's lines. I hope we get a copy!
