Zoey opening her gifts from June's Aunt Saeko in Japan
Zedder got a nice gift yesterday from her Great Aunt in Japan, June's Aunt Saeko. She sent an awesome package full of Hello Kitty stuff for the Zedder. Zo was thoroughly impressed and now just needs to get back over to Baachan's to learn more Japanese so that she can say thank you in person. We'll get working on that. She's really only got a year and a half to get her Japanese down before she has to use it.
Zoey hard at work on some of the gifts that Saechan sent.
June was ruefully talking about the days when she was small and package used to come from Japan. Back then she was the only little girl to have some of the things drifting into North America from Japan. You certainly couldn't find Hello Kitty at your suburban shopping mall, or in the corner variety store. June recalls stationary and clothes and toys that we much more than one a kind here in Canada...they were impossible to get unless you had friends or family in Japan. She's happy that Zoey will receive the same but bummed that it just won't be the same for her as it was for her Mom. Either way, it was sweet of Saechan to send stuff in 1983 and it's sweet of Saechan to send stuff in 2010. That's one awesome Aunt!
Thanks Saechan! ありがとうございます!
