Annabelle's 2nd Birthday

Annabelle is 2 years old in June and I only post up her birthday celebration now :P :P  Hope it's not too late :) :)

Again, sourcing for her cake is so hard as usual and finally,we have agreed for this design on the very last minutes with the baker and actually, I really love this cake and it's my most favourite cake over the past years.  Just love the whole design and setting on the cake itself and I am actually over the moon that we are finally having a non fondant cake for the kid :)

Daddy has flew back specially for this princess's 2nd birthday and we booked for a family dinner at FULLHOUSE restaurant which just opened it's newest branch in KK not long ago.  Princess Belle is dressed up in her little Swan fairy white tutu and put on her blink blink shoes which I source from Bangkok.  Oh, she looks so cute isn't she??? :) :)

Finally this 2 princess didn't fight for once and holding hands waiting for the seats .... just because their very very fierce stern Kung Kung (grandpa) is joining us for dinner :P :P

Somehow the dinner turn out to be a little 'tense' at the restaurant due to 2 active kids and a military and stern type of grandpa who doesn't like kids to make a mess on their dinning table or make noise, plus he couldn't find his usual favourites 'chicken chop' on the menu and starts complaining :( :( but .... I am glad that everything turns out ok and we ended the dinner in a rush manner.


Little Annabelle really loves her cake and can't wait to put her fingers on them.  The fragile big fondant butterfly on the cake (refer 1st picture above) didn't survive from her constant touching, pulling and twisting and fall apart immediately  so I replaced the decorations with 2 cute candles instead :)  So hard to maintain the original shape of the cake when kids, especially my 2 active kids were anywhere near it.  But hey, it's the kids birthday and it's meant to be like that, isn't it :) :)

Finally after the photography sessions, it's totally ANNABELLE'S TIME!!!!!  With a green go button shown, she quickly lower her head and then take a deep bite onto those better cream and having a feast!!  :D :D  Look at her smile and that creamy face of hers and you would know how happy she was to finally allow to do what she wants with her very own birthday cake :) 

Following was, her most favourite part - poking those little fingers into the cake.  She just love doing this and she has done that on her Jie Jie Angel's birthday too.  Must be feeling so good dipping those finger in rich cream and enjoying those sweet destruction of hers :)

Pressie time finally!  I think both girls were so exited that Angel has forgotten that it's Mei Mei Annabelle's birthday. She would helpfully tore away all those wrapper for Annabelle as if it's her own birthday :)

So that's a glimpse of what Annabelle gets for her 2nd birthday.  An Ang Pow from her Grandpa, A Mother Garden picnic set from Mommy and Daddy, a Vtech caterpillar toys also from Mommy and Daddy, a kids kitchen stove set which she absolutely love from her beloved Grandma, a Fisher Price drum set from her Uncle and finally, a panda bear maze set also from Mommy and Daddy.

Mommy and Daddy hope that you have a blast and you are looking so sweet on your birthday :) We love you so much and mommy just hope that as you gets older, you and your Jie Jie will quarrel less and fight less over the same toy ya :)  

Kisses and lots of love from Mommy, Daddy and Jie Jie Angel.  Happy Birthday to my sweet baby Annabelle!

I'm A .... What?

As Angel gets older, I have stopped tidying after her and asked her to have her share in tidying up around the house for things that she messed up with. My sofa cushion will forever not staying at where they suppose to be just 5 minutes after I put them back. And the toys will never ever stays inside their toy box even when they are not played.

I also starts asking her to make her own bed and our bed too (although I will probably redo it after her most of the time) just to put her into a habit of making her bed every morning during weekends and also "keep her occupied" while I was busy preparing breakfast in the kitchen.

Then one day, while I asked her to make the beds while I was busy preparing breakfast in the kitchen. She must be very frustrated about this bed making routine and then suddenly I hear her shouting from inside the bedroom.

"Urrrghhh ...... Mommy, I am so tired of making the beds and keeping all my toys everyday and doing EVERYTHING!! Why do I need to do this everytime and you are doing NOTHING?"

Then she continues ....
"Are you a STEPMOTHER asking me to do all these, huh????!!!!"

"I'm a ... What????"  I am really speechless. So I just put down the halfway done breakfast and say to her:

"Ok, then your Stepmother will start tidying up the bed and you please make breakfast for yourself ok, Cinderella? After that starts vacuum the floor, mopping and hang the clothes outside the house too my sweetheart. After that go to the market and do groceries and prepare for lunch too ya ......."

Then suddenly she stopped me half way and say

"OK OK OK ..... I will make my bed now and can you please stop talking and CONCENTRATE in making breakfast, Mommy?"

Sigh ...... Really kek-sei-ngo la.

A Very Special Lantern From Mommy

I have always wanted to make a real lantern for my girls but just do not know where to start. Until this year before the Lantern Festival, I really couldn't find a decent lantern for the girls back home while Angel was asking for a 'candle' lantern instead of those electronics light bulbed lantern, then I have no choice but to make one myself. 

And believe me, it's not an easy job for a Mommy!!!  (Mommy doesn't program to make lanterns ok??  hahahaha.)  Luckily all the materials were source before our return from China which makes things less hassle. I think I would have running around like a mad woman for I really have no idea where can I get all the material here.  

Initially, I was so naive that hoping both girls could participate in the lantern making process. But at the end, Angel grab hold of the glue and start glueing whatever objects she could find, dancing around with the dangerous wire poking everything and everyone, deliberately cutting my hard work - the paper dots I cut for decorations into half (I really can't believe she done that!!!!), tangling the strings I used to hang those lanterns and then start using the lantern stick as a sword hitting almost everything that she could find, etc etc etc  ....... then I give up!! This process is totally insane and mission impossible with a very active kid who doesn't take instruction and wants to make destruction around!! So after putting both girls to sleep, with a very sleepy eyes while I have a heavy head due to the flu bug attacking me (call that lucky!!!) yet still burning midnight oil for 2 days, Finally, mommy's first ever lantern for both girls are done!! Yippie!!

Well as their wishes .... Annabelle asked for a Furry Bunny design while Angel wanted so much for a Colourful Polka Dots Bunny Lantern :) Angel did help to cut some of the dots used for her bunny and we are so please with the design :)

I am so glad that the lantern was complete just in time!!  So later of the day, we brought both girls to attend the Lantern Party at our neighbourhood and they are having such a blast!  I think both of them are so happy asking mommy to relight the candle inside their lantern as the strong wind blows it off every 10 minutes.  But hey, that's the FUN part of having a candle lighted lantern, isn't it?  ^_^  

I really miss those days when we are still carrying those traditional lanterns and those "lantern burning" experience which bound to be happen sooner or later and would guess whose lantern will get burned first!!  Hehehehe ....  but but but, having to say that, I do hope both Annabelle and Angel will not burned down mommy's "hard work" so fast and before the real Lantern Festival Day.   

Well, another wished/dreams fulfilled for me and my girls!!

I do hope that some day when they are older, they will still remember that their Mommy ever make them their very own lantern once open a time ...... ^_^

Happy Lantern Festival to All Ya ^_^ 
And hoping everyone will have a blast time celebrating with family and friends ^_^

Sexy Baby [Annabelle @ 9M]

Feeling a bit lazy and busy to update my blog lately and it's really not easy to maintain a blog and my sanity especially now having 2 constantly screaming and active kids at home :) However, I found these photos of Annabelle when she was @ 9 months old and can't wait to post it up.

Oh my oh my ....... Look at her belly ....... so big and round and so cute!!! ^_^

Babies looks the chubbiest at around this age and now, she has lost most of her baby fat but still maintaining that 'gigantic' frame inherited from her Mommy DADDY.

I hope these pictures will brings sweet memories to her when she is much older :) Babies are just so cute and so cuddly when they are in their best mood ^_^
