roses

























the roses!!!!

from the last beginner's course of making fabric flowers
and 
i must say the most challenging and at the same time frustrating one...

to give "expressions" to each of the petal,
i need to rub the edges with my thumb and index finger...
then iron each one of them to give them the cup shape....

oh my oh my
the rubbing is so difficult...
my fingers went out of control after rubbing a few of them!

i made four in the end
one being a bud

really need to thank teacher ms stephanie from
hkartflower
for the great teaching and sharing!

now i need to find a proper vase to house them....


stealing time for myself




play house for little people





























it's just the three of us tonight dining out
because little bb is having a sleep over at his bestie's house...

somotu found this play house just for little people like bbb
(yes, we wouldn't have been able to go with little bb
because he won't be allowed admission!)

little bb had a fabulous time doing the slide
(while i was exhausted following him around, up and down)

cooking (his favorite activity)




























and the doll house!

we could tell from his facial expression
that he finds these houses with rooms and miniature furnitures
very amusing and strange...

he has his eyes opened wide
while walking back and forth between the houses...

our christmas tradition continues.... boxing day









over the years,
i have tried to establish our own little family tradition 
during the most wonderful time of the year....

christmas dinner with the grannies
christmas gathering with friends
gingerbread man / house making
christmas afternoon tea for the big people and small people
setting up the little treats for santa on christmas eve
playing swinging christmas songs nonstop
filling the house with christmasy aroma
.
.
.
.

doing all of these so that we will have some fond and precious moments to cherish 
when we all grow much older


boxing day lunch & play
