* Track of the little sparkles *

Daily log of childcare, cooking, gardening, sewing, and so on.


My elder daughter's every day home task is, watering the plants. The radish was enough grown, so she picked up the first harvest! It was a little bit sharp, so I tried to slice it and mixed with tuna and mayonnaise. My daughters ate the sa…


Finally, I managed to prepare our Advent Calendar! Here is not the full days, because some parts are missing, but we can start from now. My daughters were happy to see it, and hoped that inside the bags, there would be many chocolates🍫


Last weekend's our lunch! we bought the pizza at price of ¥650 for each. And added fresh tomatoes and mushrooms. They are very tasty and voluminous, so we were full!


We arranged and decorated the Christmas tree! This time, our daughters decorated 100%🥰 We are looking forward to buy the new ornament for this year, and wondering where to go. If you know the good place to buy one near Yokohama, please tell…


My husband brought this "patissier" kit back to home. We tried to make cream puff!! It was the first time for us all, and of course we all enjoyed making cream puff! (only we have to do is fill the cream inside the buns)


At the zoo, there are many touchable exhibitions returned! My daughters enjoyed to touch them, compare the size, or feel the tactile sense. They were looking forward to touching also the real porcupine hair, which are very hard, and they d…


I made pack-lunch for the zoo, yesterday morning. Usually, I make Onigiri with sprinkling in the marketplace, but that time, I made them from materials. Green ones are made of salted komb and daikon radish leaves, and brown ones are made o…


After we started to watch Disney+ contents, I recommended my daughters "Tinkerbell" stories. They are now addicted in Tink's stories. For this occasion, I already bought Tinkerbell's (Disney fairies) books! Unfortunately, I have only 3 boo…


That is the old photo taken in this summer. At Kawa-sui, an aquarium near Kawasaki station, we saw this Chameleon eating cricket (maybe). That was very lucky for us to get the chance, and it was super fun!!!!!


We went to Atami as well. The hotel has "footbath" in the middle of its building. We can see the carps swimming in the footbath. In the bath, there were many stones for press our foot pressure points. It was fun!!!!


I found it in the supermarket! Super yummmmmmmmmmmmy!!!! Sorry for my family, but it's for only me!😎


We got on a boat, and saw under the sea for a while. There were many fish and seaweed, the children enjoyed it sooooo much. After seeing them, we went to the top of the boat, and saw the seagulls and eagles.


It's been a long time! We had many events, like nursery & school field day, BBQ with another families, Halloween event, and so on. This time, we went to the Hakone spring trip with our relatives. We enjoyed the spring, hotel, boat, and cha…


My elder daughter is still addicted in Frozen. I had bought this book (very thick for me!) and introduced it to her. At first, she had every intention of reading it, but after she tried to read one page, she gave up I hope she will interes…


We had BBQ last weekend. Unfortunately, my elder daughter and my husband had fever, so they couldn't join. But my second daughter and I enjoyed it with other families. The big crows stole 2 blocks of chicken legs, but that was extremely fu…


My second daughter drew this pic. This is her father😁, and everybody agreed that it's quite similar to him! She doesn't drew people's body, but only legs. It makes her drawings more special.


Because we burried the real one to the park, I bought it instdead of him. I hope it help us away from bees and recall us the real Gin-yanma. And, after I bond its wing to its body with superglue, we'll bring it to the mountain as Oniyanma-…


My second daughter wrote a letter to her elder sister. She is very good at imagination, and she CAN read this letter by herself I want her to start learning Letters, (because she is at the age of reception class in the UK), but she is not …


A few days ago, my elder daughter became seven years old! She was given Elsa'a dress (Frozen 2, it's her strong wish), wore it, and made poses again and again. She extremely delighted with this gift, and her little sister was also given An…


We tried to make "Otsukimi-dango" (moon-viewing dumpling), yesterday. It was the "Beautiful Moon in Autumn" day in Japan, and we used to eat rice dumplings on that day while viewing the beautiful full moon. As you can see, the kitchen was …


My husband made this SL with KAPLA! To tell the truth, my husband is the most player of the KAPLA in our family😁 My second daughter still likes to destroy them🤭


I bought this Karuta after I saw my X-follower's post. It's very nice! And good for my daughters to feel seasons. This Karuta states 24 seasons with picture card and descriptions. I love the picture's taste.


My daughters drew the Ginyanma, so did I. This is my drawing😉 I couldn't help drawing it because its color was soooooo beautiful. My elder daughter also write the diary with picture and brought it to the school.


We found this big dragonfly at the park, yesterday! It was almost dying, eaten by ants. My daughters tried to save it and brought it to our house. We search the name of the dragonfly at the library (because it's very near from the park) an…


I made this lyric book of Frozen 1&2 for my 6yo daughter. She is addicted in singing Frozen songs these days. Because I bought Frozen songs CDs and we usually listening them in our car and house, she can sing even not famous ones🤭


We saw this golden stag beetle at Kawa-Sui. It had held the beetles & stag beetles special exhibition. Since my younger daughter loves bugs, and we caught real beetle this summer, they were very interested in that exhibition. It also expla…


About Kawa-Sui aquarium, again. We ate "Namazu"(catfish) barger and fish&chips. Since my daughters love fish&chips, they also liked Catfish one. It was the first time even for me to eat catfish, but it tasted almost same as other fish. We …


At Kawa-Sui aquarium, we met the sloth in very short distance!!!! It's forebidden to touch them, but we could see them for a while in only 1m distance. Their clow was soooo sharp and long. In English movies/songs/books, we see about sloth …


We went to "Kawasui" that is an aquarium near Kawasaki-station, and displays only River creatures. It was our first time to go there, so we enjoyed very much. I didn't know the concept of this aquarium, so we expected to see jellyfish or s…


My husband bought this large Shiitake mushroom at Gunma prefecture, last weekday. My 4yo daughter calls its stem as "mushroom finger", and she doesn't want to eat it. Look! They were soooooo juicy and tasty. My daughters like to eat them (…
