*snow day*

it is the coldest day in nearly 60 years....
around 3 degrees... nearly freezing...
with higher elevations below zero

kindergartens and primary schools are closed today
that's probably the first for as long as i could remember....

it has been going around the town that it may actually snow!
having lived in much much colder places (with many inches of snow)...
and schools closed for real snow days....
i know it won't happen...
but,
school closed and all the heaters on...
it feels like
*SNOW DAY*!!!!


what's better than opening a restaurant to serve steaming hot food on a snow day?!

yes, that's what we ended up doing for the whole morning...

our restaurant, as named by little bb, is called the play-doh restaurant (how "original"!)

and the whole morning, we are serving pasta with sausages, hot soup, waffles and pancakes non-stop............




.... and just before closing, 
one *customer* ordered an ice cream sundae despite of the freezing weather....
and little bb did his best to come up with this colorful and yummy sundae,
topped with strawberry and chocolate.



while we are busy in the kitchen....
brownie and sugar are keeping an eye on our orders making sure no order is missed......
(and yes, they need double layers to stay warm on this snow day *smile*)

my little quiet land

the other night i was sitting in my zakka room 
looking at the different corners
all the little things here and there
things i collected
things i made
things i bought thinking i would have the time to make more things
.....
recalling the times i spent in this room
enjoying me-time
reading books and magazines
listening to chet baker
sewing
crocheting
.....


very soon
the room will have a make over
and i will no longer have these little corners
.....
i should enjoy this little quiet space of mine for the days remaining................

love notes @ the office



needed to go back to the office due to some urgent work
little bb tagged along while somotu was waiting in the car downstairs...

i was hoping that i could wrap things up within half an hour
but ended up being there for almost an hour....

there wasn't really much for little bb to do
other than playing with my calculator, my highlighters....

while i was busying reading through the report and composing my email....
he was busy drawing and writing....




when i finally looked up,
i saw the sweetest notes...........


he continued to write while i continued to work.....

the note that almost made my eyes teary was the little sticky note....
he has written us "i love you" notes many many times
but this is the first time i receive such a note asking me to go home before he sleeps...

little bb, mommy wishes the same too....
you don't know how much i want to dash back home to see you and read you bedtime stories every night....
how much i try my best to call it for the day at work so i can catch you before your bedtime...

mommy loves you soooo much.............



he ended up writing me another smaller note
and have them all posted on the wall

xoxo 
mommy lovvvvvvvvvvvvvveeesssssssssss you

cutest little drawings




when i was little, 
one of the many games i liked to play is 
pretending to be a teacher.....

and now.... i have become one
at least one at home....

checking his home assignments is one of the most entertaining moment of the day...

for instance, like this reading comprehension assignment...
i just couldn't stop giggling over his drawing....

10+ and 2







returning to our favorite hotel for our wedding anniversary....

this year, we went back to the stairs which lead to the banquet room....
we told little bb about how daddy and mommy got married here
and the pictures, the laughter, the memory, friends and family along these stairs...

we finally got to try this restaurant....
little bb loves the cheese fondue and 
we were amazed with how much food he could consume!
well done!

10+ years and 1 little bb and with one more *smile*
