Happy Birthday Koguma-Chan

Happy Birthday Koguma-Chan, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

Happy Birthday to Mia or Koguma-Chan.... my I year old granddaughter
who lives in Japan with her super fabulous Mum and Daddy !

Before she was born Mia's nickname was Koguma-Chan which means Little
Mia's Mum Yuko, calls Daddy David, Kuma-Chan, which means Big Bear so
Mia became Little Bear.

The Tiger on her Birthday card is because she was born in the year of
the Tiger.
So now Mia's Mummy and Daddy have have a little tiger/bear on their
hands ... Oh My !

I miss not living closer to Koguma-Chan to see her grow-up but that
also means I am the fabulous crazy grandmother from America.
Oh what fun we will have !

Mia is so lucky to have such a wonderful family who surrounds her with
From her Japanese Oba-chan, who is the most lovely Grandmother to
Yuko's sisters who are the best Aunts ever ! Plus a wonderful circle
of extended family and friends !
She is one lucky Baby Girl ! and so am I to be her grandmumzilla !

If you click on Koguma-Chan's blog on my side bar her Daddy posted
some birthday photos !
