Christmas Dinner

Dinner was planned to start at 3pm. But in the end we started at around 6 pm. First on the menu is crostini.. cheese and tomatoes on baguette. We also had a ham platter. All these served with white wine:

Earlier, daddy had already cooked the pasta sauce. It was for Spaghetti Marinara. After we had eaten the appetizers, we continued with the main course with red wine:

Here you are wolfing down the big pate of pasta:

And here is Mei-mei enjoying her "tomato sauce"pasta. She said that it was the best pasta:

To finish the leisurely Christmas dinner, we had a cheese and dried fruit platter:


And the finale for the night was opening presents for you kids. As we had to leave early the next day, you guys got to open your presents on Christmas eve.

Movie Time

We took a day off earlier than the shut down to spend some time with you kids as we had not taken a day off the whole school holidays. Movies and a little Christmas dinner shopping was planned. Since the movie to watch was "Rogue One: A Star Wars Movie" which would not have suited you, I booked tickets for "Sing" for you and me while Ko-ko watched with daddy.

Brunch was a yummy quick lunch in Mandarin Cafe followed by a quick drop by Citibank and then we headed to Gurney Plaza. 

Here are some pictures of you all posing with the props before movie time:

You said I did not take a picture of you with the WHOLE prop.. so have to take another picture:

Tried to take a picture for the both of you while daddy queued to buy water, but could only take of Ko-ko as you were too short.

Had to wait for daddy to carry you so that I can take a picture with the both of you:

As usual halfway through the movie, you complained and said that you wanted to go home. But after some persuasion, you stayed and loved the ending. You were dancing to the songs being sung in the finale.

Before going home, we quickly stopped by Cold Storage to pick up some stuff which daddy needed to cook our Christmas eve dinner.

Happy Birthday, Daddy

Happy birthday to the world's best daddy. Had a wonderful time preparing with the kids: planning on the cards and sneaking the birthday present which Mei-mei let out of the bag. We managed to keep it a secret until 5 minutes before it was time to surprise daddy...

Handmade is the Best

On Saturday we spent time planning and making daddy's birthday card. First round was with Ko-ko while Mei-mei had her nap. We Googled and come up with this "i Pad" sine we could not afford to buy him an actual iPad *grin*
Here's the final results:
*we thought to put "disgusting" for one of the "D"... but thought better of it...

Here's the back which looks like an iPad:

And Ko-ko posing with his completed project:

After Mei-mei woke up, we also worked on her card. Here's the items you picked from my craft box. Helped you cut the words and put the glue while you stuck thrm on the card:

And you added the words inside the card :

And you posing with the card too:

Once upon a time..... the end
You said you learnt this joke from Lynette.

Mega Sports Camp

For Mei-mei it was her first time attending the sport camp. For Ko-ko it was his 6th time attending. And as usual this was a fun event. Friday ended with you both and HZ getting a treat from Ah Ma: lunch in Wendy's.
To my surprise there was even a medal/trophy stash for the both of you.
