Happy Birthday, Taka!!

Today is my oldest's birthday - EIGHTEEN!! How in the world did he get to be THAT OLD?! He was a little guy last I remember ;0P

See? This was taken when he attended an international Japanese school in the NJ/NY area back in 2001. This was his first day of school as a kindergartner. Luckily he doesn't check my blog - otherwise, I would be in trouble! HeeHee!!

Now look...a senior in high how did that seriously happen?! OY~!! I am so proud of what he has become...a kind, well-mannered young man. Happy Birthday, sweet boy!!

For his birthday, his favorite meal - Japanese! Gee, no brainer! LOL!! We plan to go out to our favorite restaurant, DARUMA :0) For those of you in the surrounding Schaumburg IL area, it is a MUST GO for Japanese food!

And a card for him...
