mall hopping

it's the time of the year that i don't mind bringing little bb to the
shopping mall more often than we normally do....

it's probably a childhood thing (of having very fond memories of xmas,
the xmas lightings, trees, decorations, etc)

i love going to the malls to check out their festive decorations...

this afternoon, we went to a few....
(though they are nice, i like the ones they had last year more)

the perfect xmas tree topper

went to a few places i usually get xmas deco from but
i wasn't able to find any tree topper to go with our colour theme this year....
so i gave up searching...

then yesterday,
i found this angel in little bb's school bag.
i love it!
it's perfect for our colour theme 
the size is just right
and needless to say, i love the lace (the body of the angel is made of lace doily paper)
and most importantly,
it's made by little bb!
(he is now able to draw eyes and mouth that are recognisable!)

i asked him whether he made this at school
he nodded his head
and said

the tall ship

the tall ship
which is tall outside
but short inside

little bb was the only one who could walk as normal inside the ship
the rest of us kept bumping our head and back

behind the scene

while i was making the hot air balloon stands and stuff for his birthday party,
little bb was very keen to help out.

he constantly stole the hot air balloon, cloud cut outs, ribbons, etc from me...
he could only be stopped when i told him that he could help out
and i would give him the scraps and bits and pieces for him to mess with...

similarly when i was trying out different shapes and sizes of the hot air balloons and clouds,
he wanted to help out too.
he would take my ruler and measure their length for me,
and telling me the "correct" position of the raindrops and rainbow.

while i was taking pictures of him measuring,
i got the idea to use the image taken to make the party invitation
with the help of an iPhone app called photonia..

rooftop fun after we were done decorating the cookies that day...
