Last Playdate on December and gift exchange

To celebrate December babies as well as to remark last playdate on December, Mommy's group of NTU friends arranged for small party in the pool with BBQ for adults too.

Aunty Endina was the main host and she also helped to be an MC for kids.
The kids decorated their own cupcake and lighted the candle up on each cupcake.
After that they sang Happy birthday and blew the cake together.

Since there were many December babies, we decided to do gift exchange instead.
Richie got assorted wooden cars and he's so happy to receive it

Have yourself a merry little xmas 2012

One fine day with daddy

Richie was so excited when he watched mommy's video sliding in the icy road, he always copied in the floor how mommy did, therefore as consolation, daddy brought Richie to snow city to play slide with snow.
He's so happy inside there playing slide alone and with daddy.

Ok, Richie, wait for another 3 years to play the real snow

My Big boy (almost 3 years 3 mos)

My big boy is no longer baby anymore, he's ready to become koko now.
Mommy watches him grow every day and becomes more mature and independent.
When mommy told Richie that soon he will be come koko and has meme/didi on the way, he's so excited.
Everyday, he told me that he wants to hug baby by hugging mommy.

Sometimes, he asks me to see baby inside my tummy hehe..and when I open my shirt to show him his tummy, he thought the baby could see from my belly button.
He whispers I love you baby :)

Not only that, he also tells the world that he's soon becomes koko.
Everytime he meets our friends, he said that mommy's tummy has baby, Richie will sleep with baby in his room.
Richie sleeps below and baby sleeps in the top.
Richie will feed the baby with milk, kiss him/her when he/she cries etc etc....

I guess he's very very excited with new addition in our family.
He's no longer selfish like he used to be.
Thanks to Pingu, I would say, his favorite show.
He learns to baby sit from Pingu, here's the video of his favorite show

Love Month of December

December is our favorite month, we have switched to holiday mood.
Family reunion, festive seasons, party with family and friends.
This year Richie was so excited with Christmas tree so mommy bought good deal christmas tree from Groupon and the ornaments from Giant.
As long as it makes Richie happy hehehe...

We've lighted up the christmas tree and decor the window with ribbon and sock.
We've told Richie the tale be a good boy and on christmas eve put the grass in the sock for Santa's reindeer.
In return he will get a present from Santa.
We prepare him for our family trip to Santa's homeland 3 years later therefore he must be involved in the santa's tale to appreciate our trip meeting the Santa hehehe..

Scandinavia Winter Adventure (15 - 28 November 2012)

Last month, mommy and daddy went for honeymoon making sibling for Richie hehe...
We chose to go to scandinavia, northern Europe to hunt Aurora borealis as well as experiencing life as danish, swedish, finnish and sami.
The trip went well, we enjoyed it very much and it's unforgettable experience.
The temperature was between -2 to 2 deg, luckily we have heavily prepared for the gear.

We loved the arctic scenery with snow every where, it's so amazing as well as the life of sami people.
How the people, animals and plants are able to survive in extremely harsh cold really taught us something
Our journey to chase the aurora borealis was another journey of faith. We've learned how to trust the guide as reflection how we should trust our God as the Guide of our life.

Like daddy said, once it was a dream now it's part of our life story. We'd love to share this experience with Richie in times to come.
We also love to bring our family together to celebrate Christmas in Santa Claus homeland at Rovaniemi.
Hopefully our dream can come true again in another 3 years.
