#2 is Finally Extracted

Your tooth was giving you some pain for a while, and yet every time daddy tries to help you pull it off, you said that it hurt. Finally after over a week, daddy managed to extract it yesterday morning easily. Just a little bloody. In fact, the permanent tooth was already growing behind the milk tooth.
Last night, daddy told you to quickly go to sleep so that the tooth fairy can come visit after you had fallen asleep. And that everyone had to be sleeping or else she wouldn't visit. So you kept telling us to go to sleep.
This morning was one of the easiest days for daddy to wake you up. He just had to remind you to check to see what she had given you. And you had the biggest smile when you came down for breakfast. 
Had some time to get you to pose with your gift of RM2 from the tooth fairy.

Our Christmas Tree

It was a day off for all of us. So we decided to put up the Christmas tree rather than over the weekend. To me, it was a little overdue as we usually set up the tree earlier than this. Anyway... Ko-ko helped daddy to carry the tree from downstairs. 
After that, you both helped daddy put on the branches. Next was my job to put on the lights. This job took me longer than usual as I had to remove and replace two of the lights. They were a new set which we had bought last year. One was of a different color, while another could not connect to the lights at the top, so they could not be lighted. After a lot of sweat and confusion in trying to set up the lights, we were ready for the decoration.
This year, daddy and I got to sit back while the two of you picked the ornaments you wanted to put on the tree. As with previous years, Mei-mei loved to put the ornaments in a group. Daddy asked "Mei-mei.. why did you put them together like a family?" *grin*

The final touch was the angel which only daddy could reach. And he needed a chair to climb on also.

Ta-da.. our tree is up.

Taking Pictures

You always love having your pictures taken. And I've noticed that you will give me funny and cute poses in the pictures:
Was worried that you would break Mickey's hand off *sweat* 
Holding his hand
With Iron Man 
With the "Kolam" for Deepavali


Got a call yesterday and this was how the conversation went:
Caller: Hi mummy.. it's E.....
Mummy: Who?
Caller: It's me, Stinky
Mummy: *laughing*

And then I'd forgotten why you had called me. I'm sure it's to tell me about something which happened in school. You are so funny, my little Stinky-Poo.

Halloween Hunt

We had a candy hunt before you went trick-or-treating:

Happy Halloween

You knew that October was Halloween. So waaay before Halloween you were planning on what to dress up as. In the end, you decided to be a butterfly (complete with a dress and the wings). Although you look like you planned to be "Scary Butterfly" in the picture:
 As Halloween was on a weeknight,we decided to have your "room-to-room trick-or-treating" on Sunday. Everyone was already given a "candy pack" and they also got a chance to be scary things:
Ah Ma, the ghost 
Ah Kong, the monster

Daddy the skull face

Ko-ko just jump scared you instead. Haha...
Even Kakak got to give you a candy pack

Once you were done, you quickly went downstairs to share your loot with Ah Ma.

Badminton Lessons

You had been bugging me to allow you to attend lessons. So finally last Friday, Ah Kong went to the Sports Club to inquire about the classes. But as the person in charge was not around, you went with them again on Saturday morning to find out more.
That very afternoon, you first lesson started. Ah Kong brought you to the club and waited for you there for the whole two hours. Hopefully, you will enjoy the lessons and not give up so quickly.
Ah Ma has mentioned that she could drop you there as she could hop over to visit Tou-tou while waiting for you.

First Children's Day in Wesley

You came back from school and told me that you wanted to bring fish biscuit for the class party. Somehow, while informing your class teacher about the plans, I ended up agreeing to provide a party pack which the children could bring home. 
So here you are packing the items and also a few spare to give to your friends from other classes:

You came back with another party pack which you had exchanged with a friend from Year 2. You seemed to have fun, even volunteering to be covered in tissue paper for the games.
As for K-ko.. such a pity as since he is considered Secondary School, there was no Children's Day celebrations for him. But he was lucky as you bought back some Vitagen which he also got to enjoy.

Journey to Spicy Food

Came home and found that we had gotten a "full moon" package with contained the nasi kunyit with curry chicken. Offered to you, and surprisingly you wanted to eat it. Ah.. it was because it was glutinous rice which was your favourite. We offered to put a little curry and after much persuasion you agreed and was very happy to eat it.
So looks like we need to slowly train you and you will soon be able to enjoy yummy Penang food such as Hokkien Mee and Curry Mee. 
*Oh yeah.. we had also started you with Indo Mee goreng too, by putting 1/3 of the chilly sauce.

Crafty Time

On the second day of school in September, you brought back a form to pick the sports, uniform and clubs which were to be held every week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. 
So we picked Art and Craft Club, Creative Dance Movement Club and Girls' Brigade for you. And this was what you brought back on your second day back to school. So adorable:

Time for Wesley

It's time for you to fully start in Wesley. While you had started 2 days in September for the language assessments, you returned to Rajawali to prepare for the graduation concert. And now that it is over, it's time to return to Wesley fully. 

Here are your new shoes which daddy bought. Looks to tiny compared to Ko-ko's shoes:
 You returned on Monday with some of your school uniforms. So you got to wear your t-shirt. Just missing your skort. Quickly caught the both of you for a picture in your uniforms before heading to school:

Evelyn's School Graduation and Concert

We cannot imagine it. It's your final year (and day) in Tadika Rajawali. After 4 years.. you are graduating from this school and moving on (a little earlier than your friends).
We woke up early to have breakfast and get ready then sent you all dressed and made up to school. Then we decided to queue (for over an hour) in hopes of getting a nice spot to watch you perform and receive your scroll. 
 As usual, the teachers did an amazing job with the decorations:
 The concert started with the usual speeches and then we were in for a surprise. The graduates marching in was a little different this time. Instead of walking in from the back of the Shammah Hall, you all danced in from backstage. So cute. We could see you dancing so enthusiastically. No wonder you said this year was a surprise.
 And it's now time for you to get your scroll from Pastor Lydia:
 Your picture projected up:
And your class teacher, Miss Varghese announcing the graduate names:
And this was a special surprise for everyone, including the children: Mrs. Sebastian singing the starting part of the song:
6 year old's choir:
We were then treated to performances from the other classes. Your sketch was the second last performance. Here you are, helping the "blind man" to pay his taxes to Zaccheus the tax collector.
You even had a line to speak in the sketch.
And the finale of 5 and 6 year old's singing the choir. We could see you singing so enthusiastically.
I went to pick you up and then we searched for teachers to take pictures with them.
With Miss Varghese

With Miss Beh

With Aunty Multi

With Mrs. Sebastian

With Miss Fong

Took a picture with the props which were prepared by the teachers for the photo booth

The hall leading to your classrooms (5 and 6 years old)
Well, and thus ends one chapter of your schooling life. And time for you to move on. We have been very fortunate that the both of you managed to get a spot in this amazing school. While we will miss sending you to this school and interacting with the teachers, it is time to move on. Here's to new challenges in your new school.

Toothless Tiger

On the day of your birthday, your tooth decided to be too loose. So before the party started, daddy gave your tooth a gentle tug and it came off. 
It's so shaky already

Ta-da.. bou geh

And very excitedly, you asked to put the tooth inside the tooth album (you finally got to use it!!). I asked if you wanted to put it under your pillow for the tooth fairy to give you some money, but you didn't want to do it. So we put it into the album and even informed Nat Kor-kor (who gave you this album) that you finally have a tooth to place into the album.

Update: Now you decide that you want to put that tooth under your pillow! Haiyo.. not allowing that. So lucky thing your other tooth is now shaky. You will soon have a new tooth to put under your pillow. 

Evelyn's 6th Birthday Party at Home

We usually try to prepare food which you kids like to eat for your birthdays. This year for your 6th birthday party, we prepared local specialties which you prefer to eat. Ah Ma also added to the dishes with her very crispy roast pork. 

This year only Audrey and Ko-ko (and your 3 year old Ee-ee) were the children who made it to the party. But we still had fun. Here you are giving instructions for the "Find the Num Noms Treasure Hunt":

Soon it was cake time. Here is your mango flavoured Num Noms cake:

You came along with us and picked the "sparklers" candle:

As it was still early, we allowed you to unwrap all the presents and even picked a few to open and started playing them with Audrey.
