Christmas day in Canada

On Friday, it was Christmas. I took a few pictures with my phone, so here they are! I didn’t take many.

The Christmas tree in my sister's house.

My sister's backyard. Those tall trees are covered with frost. And the bird isn't real.

My sister and her husband are setting up the new TV for the Christmas party.

The Christmas tree is all lit up!

My brother-in-law's son is taking pictures at the party.

Romeo, my sister’s dog

This is my sister’s dog, Romeo. He’s a toy poodle. Everyone says he’s more like a human, though.

Romeo is posing for me.

Looking good, Romeo!

Getting tired of the guy taking pictures of you?

Some pictures from Canada

I am posting this from my iPhone! It took some time to figure out how to get wi-fi working with my sister’s home network. Anyway, here are some pictures from my first couple of days here. Enjoy the snow!

A nice, snowy street near my sister's house. It's brown because they put sand on the road to prevent it from being too slippery.

Some Christmas decorations in WalMart. Which of these doesn't belong?

Yes, there's Fanta in Canada, too! This is cream soda, which I can't find in Japan.

The parking lot outside Costco.

My sister going through the self-serve checkout in a grocery store.

This is in my sister's car. See the temperature?

More snowy goodness.

Chinese takeout! They don't make it like this in Japan.

Outside my sister's house. This is her driveway. Like how high the snow it piled up?

A nice hot can of milk cocoa

It’s cold out, so I got this can of hot cocoa from a vending machine in the train station. I took this picture with my new iPhone!

What’s happening?

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately.  Ever since I got the new computer, I’ve hardly used my old computer.  All of my photos are on the old computer.  I do plan to eventually get them transfered to the new computer, but it’ll take time.  I’m not sure if I’ll get another photo post done before the end of the year.

I’m going to be on holiday from December 20 to January 4.  I’ll be going back t0 Canada for 2 weeks, but I hope to make some blog posts from there.  Maybe some pictures, too.  I’ll be getting an iPhone before I go to Canada, so I’ll probably take pictures from the iPhone and make quick blog posts from it.  I’ll be sure to post a snow picture and a Christmas tree picture.  Are there any requests for other pictures?
