Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!

I can't believe it's only a week till Christmas. Last week was a little crazy since it was the last week of school. There were lots of activities and a birthday party to attend. I am just a little tired, so I 've been trying to take it easy this week.

Originally I plan to go back to Malaysia in 2 weeks time but that trip has been postponed till maybe after Chinese New Year. Instead we'll be going off on a short vacation next week. Yippee!!! I will be taking a short blog break from this blog. I will be updating my other 2 blogs because I still have some outstanding jobs to complete. Hopefully I can get them done before my vacation.

So, here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! Hope you all have a great holiday!! :)


For those that ask whether my gingerbread house is edible or not, the entire gingerbreadhouse is edible. It is made up of gingerbread cookies, icing sugar & candies. However I don't think I will be eating mine because it has been sitting on top of my fireplace for a couple of weeks so it's been collecting a lot of dust!! hehe....

Gingerbread House

Yay!! I finally got the Christmas gifts sent off in the mail today. The post office was a mad house with everyone trying to mailing their gifts off. But at least it's done and the gifts should arrive before Christmas day. :) ok, back to regular posting.......

Every Christmas, I always wanted to make a gingerbread house but have never gotten around to do so. Well, this year, I finally did one. I bought a gingerbread kit from Costco for $10. It comes complete with the gingerbread, icing and one whole pound of candy!

First the construction. That was the easy part.

Then the eager little one happily started to decorate. She decorated the roof, the front of the house and was having a lot of fun until ....... she realized that she was not allowed to eat those candy. Slowly she began to lose interest........ sigh........

So this mommy ended up decoratingthe gingerbread house all by herself!! :(

Anyway, it turned out pretty cute, eh? hehe.... Luckily we don't have any ants in the house, so I can just leave the gingerbread house on the mantel on top of the fireplace.

Winter Wonderland

This weekend turned out to be a really fun one. The unexpected snow was a pleasant surprise. I'm glad that it snowed on the weekends instead of weekdays. At least DH get to enjoy the fun too. It actually felt like Christmas 'cos the Christmas tree was up, the fireplace was on and it was snowing heavily outside. Reminds me of the song "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas......." :)

Anyway, here's a few photos to share:

Winter wonderland

Lil'C was trying to catch the snow. :) She was so excited when she saw the snow when she woke. She literally wanted to run out & play. We had to stop her. Made her eat her breakfast and then bundled her up before going outside.

Building her first baby snowman!!

She just found out that she can actually make footprints in the snow. So she started walking round & round! :P

Admiring her handiwork!
