Went to Kids to Teen Hall, and Tate was there, so we played a little together. They became grumpy, we fed them an early lunch, and took a walk on stroller to Azabu Juban. As Tate was going to see his grandpa, we said good bye to them and mama had a short break at Starbucks while babies were sleeping.

Matt & Kana came for breakfast at home.
It was very cold again we went out for a couple of hours.
Ryuei came to play with Mo before his flight to NZ that evening. He'll be there for one year, and maybe we'll be able to talk to him in English when he comes back...? Good luck Ryuei!

Calligraphy exhibition at elementary school

 Mo's calligraphy
Ton's calligraphy
Kazuko came to stay so left babies with her and went to check out kids' calligraphy on display at school. 
Received a call from school in the morning, said Ton had fever they wanted me to come pick her up. I asked them to send her home as I couldn't go out with babies due to logistics, they sent school staff with her. They warned me that they had many kids skipped school due to flue, and she had to go check up if her fever goes up... I'm a bit sick of this flue craze going around, but I just shut my mouth...
Anyhow, her fever didn't go up, she felt better, and was fine the next day. Hooray!

It was -3C this morning, so we stayed home. Babies could have good 2 and half nap around 10am. Masaki walks a lot, Naoya not so much these days.

It was cold this morning, the streets were frozen kids had hard time going to school on this hilly area of Tokyo. I chose better streets to take walk babies, and could have hot ramen as both babies fell about the same time. It's been a long time I don't remember when I had hot ramen without distractions...

 Happy Mo

Graveyard coverd by snow at night
Video of serious snow started, Masaki watching snow fall, and happy mo playing with snow.
It snowed a lot from around 3pm. At night it reached 23cm in Tokyo, which is super unusual! Kids were so happy, they played with snow with friends after school. As usual, traffic and transportation in Tokyo were practically malfunctioning because of weather...

 Fell asleep while eating...
Mom's tea time
Went to walk in Marunouchi, as its streets were closed for pedestrian and almost no tourists...! It was not so cold yet I decided to have an early lunch while restaurant was not so crowded. Babies a bit grumpy but they fell asleep while eating lunch, and I could sit and rest for good an hour at the restaurant. Thank you babies!

 Maple toast at Gorilla Coffee
Walked to Roppongi Hills, had my breakfast at Gorilla Coffee, and played at baby room. 5 moms with hot drinks from Starbucks came in to the play area and started a party. My babies started attacking their drinks, I had to end playing and walked back home. Mommies these days don't really worry about babies getting burnt by hot drinks or making a mess...?
