why, santa? and santa answers

little bb: "mami why santa's reindeers can fly?"
mami: "................."
little bb: "deers can't fly"
mami: ".............."
little bb: "mami why one reindeer has red nose ...  others have brown nose?"

the second question is a no-brainer....  handled this one well....

the first one is...........  a good question!  i have not thought about this one myself...
silly mami...
i think probably santa's elves have played some magic on them!

being curious, i googled and ah-ha!
i was close!
santa himself unveiled the secret!
it's because he sprinkled magic over his reindeers making them able to fly for one night!

and here's a full list of questions raised by curious children...

i must watch this with little bb!

ho ho ho!

the christmas show

went to watch little bb's christmas show at his school today....
same as previous two years,
the whole class sang and danced to three christmas songs.

the difference this year,
as they are K2 ~ big boys and big girls! ~ now,
the dance steps and order were a bit less straightforward,
a short introduction was done by three little MCs before the show.

little bb got to be one of them!
we didn't really expect he would be willing to say his lines in front of all the parents
as he always shy away from performing or standing in front of strange faces.
but to our surprise,
he said his lines!
great job little bb!
mami is so proud of you xoxo
and many thanks to his class teacher for encouraging him all along!

and am very impressed with all the big boys and girls!
they could do all the steps, movements and positioning for each song.
not a single one of them got lost in all the movements *smile*

big applause to them
and to the teachers for all their effort in preparing the kids.

little christmas party

last sunday,
a couple of little bb's school friends came over and we had a little christmas party.....

prepared ready-to-build ginger bread house and ginger bread man for the kids to do icing and decorate with candies
(though they were more interested with finding *treasures* by the window bay - the place where we put all of little bb's toys and stuff *laugh*)

tried making the santa strawberries again this year...
they turned out to be much better than last year...  *smile*

idea from here.

my version of santa strawberries:
* strawberries
* marshmallow
* white chocolate pen
* brown chocolate pen
* toothpick
