Christmas with the family

Posted by Dawn at Monday, December 26, 2011
Christmas is a great time spent with loved ones as the whole world celebrates Jesus' birthday.
Woke up on Christmas morning to a nice breakfast made by my new helper, Wina. She made Min Jian Kueh (Peanut Pancake)
Every Christmas morning, we would have a good breakfast together as a family, open up our presents under the Christmas tree and have a family time of sharing. This year was no exception.
Wina sat down with us for our sharing as we talked about how God has been good to us..it was a time of thanksgiving. The next day, Wina again cooked for us a fabulous breakfast since it was a holiday! She prepared Mee Goreng.
Then CT brought us to MacRitchie Reservoir for a nice morning walk..
The kids were having a great time!
I always enjoy the nature and outdoors...something which I love to instil into my children so that they will learn to appreciate it as well and not always go to shopping malls where it is so crowded and noisy.
After our morning stroll at the reservoir, we went to the Singapore Flyer where we had lunch and we sat brought the children up to the flyer for their first time..(it was my third time!)
We had lunch at the flyer ground floor where they serve street hawker famous food from all over Singapore. It was more expensive but I love the ambience and the old, nostalgic feel to it.
Being my third time to the flyer, I thought it would be the same old thing. But glad it wasnt. There was an exhibition before we boarded the flyer. Quite interesting as it was fun and interactive for the children to play.
This time round, I didnt feel as bored in the flyer..probably because I had to take care of my children and the capsule was quite crowded. So, the whole atmosphere was one of excitement while the other two times I went, me and my friends seemed to own the whole capsule. So empty.
Now with more things being built around the area, there was also more things to see..
I was quite bored after a while..so decided to take picture of Caleb's soft toy penguin which I bought for him from Australia
Danielle also started taking my camera to take pictures. I must say, she is quite a good photographer!
Glad the kids had fun in the flyer.
