Frugal Christmas 2010

In my attempt to stay within our goal of having a "frugal Christmas" this year, I would like to savor this picture as I know this is not going to happen anytime soon anyways :)

Hadn't hubby and I promised to make this Christmas humbling and simple, I would have gotten this gift for my husband and daughter- a personalized iPad.

Yes, people, I think I finally justified why we need (errr, want) an iPad. But, Christmas is not the right time for these kinda gifts (at least in my family circle) because it's just too extravagant. This year, we want our Christmas with our daughter truly humbling as how baby Jesus was born. It's just easy to forget the real meaning of Christmas with all the media extravaganza during the holidays.  Oh well, that's how it is these days and it's our job as parents to change the pace if we want our kids to understand what Christmas is really all about.

Anyways, I'm really enjoying this picture because this is as good as it gets :)

Merry Christmas everyone!

Mikka and the Pigeon

One of Mikka's favorite books of all times - Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!!!!

This is one of her first books as we got this 2 yrs ago (when she was still in my tummy) as Christmas present from hubby's brother :)

She loves this because it's her turn to say "No!" :) She have another Pigeon book "Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!". That's also a fun book to read.

I love reading to my daughter. Sometimes we converse based on books and songs we both love :) Nobody would understand us unless they are familiar the book or the song we're talking about :) For instance the other day, I was singing "I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline and though I'm very small, I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline but inside I'm......" then she would say "tall!!!". Hilarious!

I totally digressed. Anyhoo, here's Mikka and her dad reading "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!"
