fun mood

Since my home PC was down for the past 2 days, I manage to do another layout last night (took me only 10mins! :D ) I just loved my newly bought stamps. They're so versatile and fun to use! Here's one layout of the 2 sweeties - J & C.

3 layouts a day

I did 3 layouts on Sunday! Felt so accomplished as it is really tough to scrap with 2 kiddos around. Took some pictures of the kids on x'mas day. Absolutely love this series of photos (esp Cher) & had to scrap them almost immediately!!

fresh - (she was eating her favorite snack 'munchies'! The scan was a bit blurry due to the jumbo BG bookplate)

deep in thoughts - love this pic!

the new look

Day 3 after X'mas. Totally enjoyed ours though it was just a small gathering among our close friends. The kids' room was all ready before X'mas arrival. Cher loved it and she has been spending her time playing with her new Lego playhouse in her 'new room'. And oh, Cher kept telling me 'Mummy, my room is NICEEEEE! :D

lego playhouse

Cher has always enjoy playing with puzzles and mega blocks. Hence, I thought why not get her a set of lego ville for the coming x'mas. Been aiming for this playhouse set for months but didnt get it earlier as I thought I should buy it nearer to x'mas. But now, it is running out of stock at most stores! Count myself lucky to be able to get hold of it today (all thanks to the phone calls I've made to check on its availability) lol. There is a newer model of this - Doll House which has more figurines but no thanks the price tag is scary! This set is a good catch and I know C will love it!

loot from ikea

The kids' room is already 75% done up. Quite pleased with the overall design especially the wall color - deep rich scarlet! Hehe. Went to Ikea and got a few more items. For the kids, the MAMMUT table, chairs, wall pockets, curtain, wardrobe organizers, clothes hangers. MIKAEL computer table , MALM chest drawers (all in white) for myself. All these will be in this coming sunday, yay! Will try to post a pic later then.

holiday pictures {taiwan}

I was browsing through our holiday photos and realised it has been a year since our last trip to Taiwan during winter. We celebrated DH's birthday and our wedding anniversary there together with Cher. How I love winter, love the cool weather! Cher has really grown up since the last trip when she was a mere 16 mo. Here're some pictures to share. :-D

fun idea

Here are some ideas which I adore. The colors make me happy!




it aint easy

Ok, I surrender! Today I am sending baby L to baby sitter's place. I feel quite bad about leaving her with baby sitter while I'm still on maternity leave. But seriously, it is tough handling 2 kids alone in the daytime! Cher is getting demanding and constantly seeking attention from me. I know it's normal for her to behave in this way but she has been doing a lot of silly things and sometimes it really get out of hand. I realised I did not spend quality time with Cher ever since baby L arrived, quite sad actually. Everyday is a challenge to me. My day starts with bathing baby, preparing lunch for Cher, bathe Cher, feed the kids, prepare Cher's dinner, bathe and feed 2 kids again. I cant do anything else! My house is in a total mess - untidiness is one thing I cannot stand. I miss reading, playing with Cher. This week is gonna be another busy one for me. I have to pack & re-organise our stuffs as we're going to do a 'mini' revamp of our home - for the girls' room (just bought tins of new paint yesterday and will be getting new furnitures this weekends, yay!) Really look forward to it, at least it keep me sane :D
