We celebrate Christmas with Iris’ side of the family. We first had breakfast at Fromin’s Restaurant in Santa Monica. Normally we go on Christmas day, but because Jennifer, Scott, Casey, and Morgan were going to be in Disneyland on Christmas, we celebrated a day early. Julie Tajiri’s mom, Joyce, joined us this year. She recently had hip surgery and was recuperating in a hospital, but Julie brought her out for the day.
After breakfast, we headed to Julie’s apartment to open gifts. Then later that evening, we went to Aki Restaurant for a Japanese dinner.
