and so this is Christmas~

20 01 2010

About a month late…  but…  well…  anyway….

So with my parental units here for Christmas, my mother’s one wish was to have a ‘white one’.  And with that in mind, we planned to go to Yuzawa Onsen in Niigata.

Since we were away for Christmas Day, we had our family lunch of roast chicken on the Tuesday.  My local supermarket carried whole chickens this year, so it really was a proper christmas lunch

with pudding (^-^)b

The recipe for this pud is from Video Jug, and I highly recommend it.  Everyone (work mates too) said it was delish!

In the evening we went to the illumination at Tobu Zoo (because what’s Christmas in Japan without an illumination?).

The theme was ‘Four Seasons’ but really, they only focused on the cherry blossoms for spring (>_<).

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were spent at the snow.  We had a good package, and despite none of us being able to ski or snowboard we had a good time.  Well, at least it was amusing for my parents to watch me fall down *trying* to snowboard…
