Facebook prompted me with photos of this memorable experience exactly a year ago today.  We had a truly fun-filled, albeit super HOT HOT HOT day at Escape Theme park!

 

The kids have grown so much since then, but I will forever treasure these memories we made…hopefully soon we will be able to visit Escape once again!

Prior to Christmas, Emma made a list of things she would like to do before or by Christmas.  One of them was to bake gingerbread men.

And I only discovered we had time yesterday, on Christmas Day itself, to do it….so it was a fun home activity we did.  The process took a little longer than I had envisioned, because the dough had go be chilled and hardened, and then rolled out, and cut and then chilled again, before they could be baked.

So we made some gingerbread men, and some gingerbread women, trees, snowmen, candy canes…

The fun part was piping the sugar icing on them to decorate!

Peter took the kids out to the mall yesterday, purportedly to get my Christmas present, so I wasn’t allowed to go along.

The kids had not gone out in a long while, even more so to the malls, since the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and we stayed at home most of the time.

They sure had a lot of fun out …although no one wanted to share much about where or what they did…Hmmmmmmm….

Meanwhile, back home, I finished up on all the gift-wrapping and the kids were thrilled and overjoyed to discover presents under the tree when they got home!

We will be having a cozy and quiet(er) Christmas celebration this year, just the five of us.  Nevertheless, it does not take away the magic and joy of Christmas and truly, Jesus is the reason for the season!

I just realised that it has been more than TWO YEARS since I updated this blog… so guilty of not doing something I love!

I only pray that I will have more time to fill this blog with even more precious memories moving forward. ♥

Meanwhile, I would like to share a video I compiled which we recently did as a family… I love that everyone contributed to this and it will truly be a memory to be cherished forever.

Here’s wishing everyone a blessed Christmas this year and may God bless you all!
