our first batch of mooncakes






it was a very nice studio where we took the class with friends....
two little men arrived early and were warming up...







little bb was able to follow the instructions and do most of the steps by himself...
mixing the ingredients
rolling the dough
weighing the dough and lotus seed paste for each mooncake
flattening the dough



ta-da!
our first batch!


in the oven....

heavenly & wings




i couldn't forget about them since i read about the collection here...
i knew the heavenly heels are not for me as they are beyond my limit (of 3")
but when i saw a pair online
coupled with free shipping
and (yes, a big AND... when you needed excuses and excuses)
it comes in velvet!!!!!
i'm deeply in love
and hit the "add to basket" button...

they are insanely comfortable and pretty....
but (yes, a little but....  my conscious knocked me in the head, just in time...)
they are indeed beyond my 3" limit...
and i can't think of enough occasions for them....

so
farewell,
but i will surely miss you
(i really miss you...............)

more love and kindness




it's been a week at the new school

little bb has been enjoying the new school...  making new friends and adjusting to the environment

if asked what things he has learned so far.... i would say learning how to better interact with peers in a much bigger environment, following all the school rules (classroom rules, school bus rules, etc etc), and the bible.

when he came home from the first day of school, we heard him singing to himself
....  Jesus loves me ....

his very first "homework" brought home was a coloring sheet of Jesus and the children.  he asked me to turn the page and read the passage on Jesus loves the children to him.

then he would tell us how he prays before snacks and lunch time.  and told us the correct pronunciation of "amen".

last night, he told us about Genesis and how the world was created on the first day...

it's a good sign as to us as it means he is paying attention at school and absorbing...

little bb, daddy and mommy wish to see you grow with a kind heart and be caring...  our world needs more love and kindness.  

*today's update*
He was singing this song while showering himself 

1 2 3 4 Jesus loves me
1 2 Jesus loves you
3 4 Jesus loves u even more than u ever been before
5 6 7 }%^|¥~¥~ heaven
8 9 10 let's sing it again

balloons



he loves balloons
and always asks us to help blowing them

then
he figured a way to blow balloons by himself
after attending one of the science summer camps....
he was so very excited and kept blowing bigger and bigger ones

then
yesterday,
he no longer needed a straw to blow them up....

quite amazing i would say
cuz i can't *laugh*
