Busy, Busy

So many things to blog about, but so little time. 

Erin just turned 13 months yesterday but my 12 month old monthly update is still in a draft stage.  Have been wanting to write about Elyssa's visit to Kidzania. And also to post photos and little stories of the 2 girls.  But all that will have to wait.

Why??  Cos have been busy with packing, packing and MORE packing........





D Day is this weekend.

Remind me to never, ever MOVE HOUSE again ya? 
(well, unless it's to a lovely big bungalow. He he)

Rice All Over - Just Like Jie Jie !

3 years ago, I posted these photos of Elyssa eating rice. 

Now I have similar photos of Erin with rice all over!


Take Rice


 Eat


 And Eat Somemore


Easier Still......just hold plate with the other hand.
What's the fuss mummy?



Didn't have our maid with us during dinner, so anything that can keep her quiet for a few minutes is considered good  :)

Photo


Had a quick look at my Picasa photo album just now and saw this photo of my two girls.

Photo taken when Erin was just below 2 months old.

Not too long ago but both girls have grown so much!  Gotta really treasure these precious growing up moments  :)

An Awesome Princess Birthday Party!

This is a very backdated post. About 2 months ago, Elyssa was invited to a princess-themed birthday party of her ballet classmate.

I got to know the parents of the birthday girl through hubby. I still remember discussing names for our future baby girls when we were pregnant. So lovely that 4 years on, the girls attend the same ballet class every week  :-)

Some party photos -

Activity #1 - Decorating their water tumbler and food container with stickers.


 Activity #2 - Dressing themselves up with fairy items


 Some shots of the food table



 Activity #3 -  Tea Time for the Fairy Princesses!
Not surprisingly, Elyssa was still happily eating away when the rest of the fairies were done. ;)

Activity #4 -Musical Chairs
For round 3, hubby helped out by removing a chair. Coincidentally, that was the round that Elyssa couldn't find a chair to sit. First, she went to sit on the chair that her daddy removed (at the side) but when we all said no, she kept asking "Why daddy remove the chair????  Then I have no place to sit" and then BAWLED!!  Adoi!
Even up to a week later, she still blamed her daddy. I tried to explain the concept of musical chairs to her but she refused to listen. (she thinks everyone should get a chair!)



Activity #5 - Angry Bird Game
Such a cool game! Each kid got 3 chances to throw the Angry Bird soft toy to see how many Pig Boxes they can topple. I don't mind playing this too ;)



What a great princess party, eh?  All the Planning and Execution were done by the parents themselves, with no party planners. 

Elyssa really enjoyed herself (err..except the musical chairs part) especially  dressing up.

And I was thinking to myself "thank goodness her birthday is just over". He he... no way I can plan a party like this!
