According to Evan...

.. mummy's new job is "cockroach remover".

Yup.. new job at home. Every morning we'll find one (or more) cockroaches in your bathroom. And as you do your business, you'll be calling out to me to tell me that there is one cockroach to pick up. Either under the cabinets or the bathroom door or in plain view.

And when I pick them up, you'll make sure that you stay WAAAYYY out of the way.

When asked why is it that I have to remove the cockroach you will respond "because it's your job what...". Sigh.. nice new job. 

Baby Claire

*This is Baby Claire which was the birthday present from Ee-ee and Teo-teo. You really adore her:

This is our conversation about Baby Claire:
Evan: Mummy.. today Evelyn stripped her doll. I saw her bum bum. And she did not want to put back on her clothes!!!
Mummy: Aiyoooo...

Mummy: Evelyn, why did you remove Baby Claire's clothes?
Evelyn: She wanted to pom pom what...
Mummy: But after pom pom, why didn't you put her clothes back on? She will get sick if she's naked, you know?
*thinks for a while... 
Evelyn: She's only a toy you know.. she's not real

Mummy:...... *too stunned to reply

Evelyn - 1, Mummy - 0

Evelyn's Birthday Party in School

Such a lucky coincidence for Ko-ko that he had the day off as school was having Mid-Autumn Festival that evening. So he got to attend the school party with us (and enjoy your yummy cake).

We dropped you at school and went back to have breakfast and to eat breakfast and pick up Ko-ko. 

Here are your party packs: Minnie for the girls and Mickey for the boys

All loaded into the car boot

Here are the kids all excited and clamouring around the cake:

To my surprise a large portion of the cake was finished by the kids in your class. Party packs were left to be distributed by Mrs. Teoh before the kids went home. 
After that Mrs. Teoh let you go home with us.

Evelyn's Frozen Party

Waaaay before your birthday arrived, you had already told me what cakes you wanted: both for school (Minnie) and at home (Frozen). So that was the theme we used for this year's 4th birthday party. As Kakak was in Indonesia on holiday, we planned to buy most of the food (from Naughty Nuri's and roast chicken from Song River). Only 1 dish (Aglio Olio) was cooked by daddy. 

Here's the party pack. You had picked the contents of the party pack when we went to Giant to buy the ingredients for the pasta.

Grampy wasn't feeling well on that day, but he made it to the party nonetheless. Here are you and Audrey posing with Nanna and Grampy:

And another important guest was your Teo-teo who shares the same birth date as you: 
I think you are saying that you are as tall as he is.

Here you are posing with the cake. It was an adorable Olaf with Frozen themed candles which we had found when we were shopping in Queensbay on Thursday. There was Anna, Elsa, Olaf and also one large one with the words "Happy Birthday":

Posing with Ko-ko and the rest of your cousins. Abigail was not in the picture as she was not feeling well that day. She only got up to play in the last 30 minutes after she was given Paracetamol. 

And.. our family portrait:

It was a fun birthday. These are pictures from Ee-ee's phone. I'll try to upload more pictures from daddy's camera.. I'm sure you had a wonderful birthday celebration this year. *kisses*

Ice Cream Day

Happiness... just from simple ice cream from McDonald's

All Exhausted

All exhausted after a long day. Starting the day with fever, you were still your usual cheerful self and had to wake up early this morning to prepare for your school annual concert.
Afternoon nap was only for a shirt while and so by 10pm you willingly told me that you were sleepy.
And less than 15 minutes, here you are... fast asleep

Lunch at Home

Today we both decided to be lazy and stay at home to rest. So we had instant noodles for lunch with Pepsi. Here are our smiling faces as we enjoy lunch.

Evelyn Cleaning Up

Since Kakak is off on holiday we've all got to help out. Here are some of the tines you have helped me. Good job, little girl
