It’s December and the start of Advent. Before long it will Christmas and we will be celebrating the birth of Jesus and  the start of a new year.  2014 is finally drawing to a close and it has certainly been a year of growth for me and the kids.

1) November was a month of firsts for Tiger girl.  It was the first time that she attempted Rock Climbing at the Rock School in Bedok.  She was the youngest participant at the rock climbing session and thoroughly enjoyed herself.

Tiger girl showed how gung-ho she is when she steadily scaled the 3 storey wall and made it to the summit.  Monkey boy and Doggie boy too managed to scale the walls and did it several times during our 2 hour session.

2) Disney has come to town and the kids had the fun at the Winter Wonderland at Changi. We were invited to try out the bouncy castle which they had set up and look at the Disney theme decorations. The kids enjoyed themselves bouncing around in the castle.

3) I did all my Christmas shopping early this year. I ordered family braclets from Adeline’s Loft  and water bottles from Taobao. Ordering items online  has really made shopping so much easier. It also saves me time and money as I get the best deals.

4) It was play and more play as Tiger girl and her brothers went on playdates with their friends. We hosted playdates at our house and also went together to try out the Amped Trampoline park.

For $13/ hr per kid they bounced around and had fun on the trampolines in this indoor hall. I  found it rather pricey however it was certainly a fun experience for them to enjoy.

5) Another fun experience the kids had was playing laser tag. They  chased each other around and had a good workout while playing with the guns.

6) November being a month of Thanksgiving  I focused on various activities which taught the kids about showing gratitude. We read the book – Gratitude is a Funny Thing  and made up our own Gratitude Tree.

7) November was a month that I opened up and shared some fact on the blog about myself.  I have been mentioning more about the kids and our experiences and it was time to give you readers more information about myself.

8) We have been going and eating out more that the kids are on school holidays. It was the prefect excuse  for me to eat cake with them while we were at a cafe.

9) Being positive and having  happy thoughts certainly would make life more meaningful. Looking at the happy smiles of the kids  really helps to perk up my day.

10) Having fun and enjoying oneself is certainly good. Besides the thrills and excitement one can definitely spend time to give thanks for the blessing that one has received.  For Thanksgiving I dedicated a post to my family for all they have given me. They  are and always will be my pride and joy and my main source of motivation.

How was your month of November like?

Time for some Tea

Last week while we at the airport to let the kids experience a Disney Christmas we decided to have an early dinner at Coffee club. It has been awhile since I brought the kids to have some cake and have our dinner out.

They were happy to eat out and have their choice of what they wanted to eat for dinner.

Tiger girl selected this cake. Strawberry is one of her favourite fruit and she will not pass on the chance to eat strawberry cake.

The kids had their dessert before eating the main course that we ordered.

Monkey boy didn’t want to eat any cake nor the kids meal and ordered Cottage Pie instead. I too had a Cottage pie for dinner. It was a bit too cheesy for my liking. Monkey boy loved it though.

What have you been eating lately?
