staying in

another typhoon no.8
our original plan for the day was changed...
for most of today,
we stayed in....

while little bb was napping,
i continued with the preparation work

lots of tracing and cutting
fuelled up with my favourite sweets 

when little bb woke up
he sat next to me for a little while
playing with stickers,
did some colouring

next we played with play dough,
did some exercise books on counting

it was a relatively quite night in
while the wind was blowing fiercely outside
shaking our windows
making angry howls....

little bb had difficulty falling asleep.....

追月....  chasing the moon

after mid-autumn festival

Thursday, September 19, 2013

happy mid-autumn festival

for the days before today (mid-autumn festival),
little bb has been saying "就嚟燈籠啦!"
i think what he meant is "就嚟中秋節啦!"
but no matter how many times i told him it should be said as the latter,
he kept on saying "就嚟燈籠啦!"
and he would end the sentence saying "好開心!"
as long as you are happy,
i am happy....

tonight, he had some good fun playing with his buddies and lantern.

this and that

i would love to receive one of these super cute little cards!

i love glitter!

love all their cards:

and i need this one right now:

actually i need these too:

ok ok, enough,
stop whining...
it's stormy at the moment...
but it will go away...


super cute, but only if i can cook!

too pretty!  my hands are really itchy! 
wanted so much to make flowers again.....
