At the point of writing, Sis and family are already back home at the Lion City, celebrated Sis’ birthday and Christmas, now waiting for New Year. Hmmm… I am so late in posting…

When the kids get together, they bring the house down with their laughter, squels of delight, and lots of shouting! HQ and QQ simply adore their cousin Gabriel, and have been looking forward to meet him ever since we told them Gabriel is coming. And of course we had the opportunity to meet and cuddle little Raphael! At 4 months old, he has a laud voice too, that cutie pie :-)

The kids watching Walking with Dinosaurs… don’t know what’s so funny about that documentary, but the kids were laughing like hyenas :-D

And as usual, Sis brought the kids beautiful gifts.
for HQ: Aussino robots bedsheet
A long sleeves tee
Peter Pan book
Another interesting book with funny phrases :-)
I think the Peter Pan book is a thoughtful gift as HQ is really into Peter Pan at the moment. for QQ:
Little Mermaid story book and CD
A very sweet Osh Kosh top
A striped dress
I love the striped dress cutting, I think I’m going to duplicate a handmade one for QQ… hee hee Love the Osh Kosh collar details; although the top is at size 4, QQ at 2 could fill it up alright :-) And a huge bottle of calcium softgel pills for me… Thanks, Sis for all the lovely gifts!

We put together some Christmas presents for Gabriel and Raphael:
Appliquéd alphabet tees – “g” for Gabriel and “r” for Raphael
Appliquéd elephant onesie for Raphael
Appliquéd trucks set for Raphael – bought, not handmade, but I hope to be making a similar one :-)
A hardcover "bible stories for kids" for Gabriel, and a Pooh Bear baby cot activity centre for Raphael, all wrapped up.Close-up of the alphabet appliqués.
I bought the same t-shirts for HQ and QQ, but didn’t have the time to appliqué theirs yet.

A simple birthday gift for Sis, who is a Christmas eve baby:
A Singapore Cookbook, so that she can whip up decent Singapore meals for me… haha
And a handmade apron Here I am trying it on to see its fit. Makes me want to make one for myself now… *wishful*

See my other handmade projects.
