I did もちつき (traditional Japanese pounding of rice) at my aunts house in Monterey Park. 
も ちつき-mochitsuki is performed during the end of December in preperation for the new year. You buy the special sweet rice min of 5 pounds and soak in water the night before so the rice get plumpy.
I invited Sean and Kevin cause they never did it before. We were each supposed to make 5 pounds worth of mochi for our families but my mom bought the 10 pounds of rice by mistake. I knew from the night before when I was soaking it that the portion was a little big from last year but I never checked the bag. I think we made over a 100 mochi all together. Most of my relatives made plain or red bean filled mochi. For the past two years I made peanut butter mochi and my relatives thinks it's weird. It actually tastes good. We started at 9am and ended around 1:30pm. When we got home, we all divided up the mochi. Fun memories.

Kelley's Performance.

Kelley invited me and S0ho to her christmas performance at her Church. She was so cute. She didn't want me taking photos of her cause she was embarrassed. Hehehe xD Afterwards we went to Icchos for dinner.

Hello Kitty Coin Purse

This coin purse is usually used for cake decorations. The cake decorator gave this to me for free since I love hello kitty so much.
