From the time the children started preschool, the teachers had been teaching the children to make cards or crafts for occasions like Mother's Day or Father's Day. When they reach home, they will present it to us.
As they like to do handicraft, especially the girls, they will also do cards for our birthdays and anniversaries.
Though they used normal printing paper to do the card, the cards are still nice in my eyes. Most importantly, the cards are unique as all are drawn by our children.
On my birthday, I received cards from 3 kids and a red packet from Amilie as well. Haha! Can't remember how much she had given me but isn't that sweet?
Found pictures of them doing painting on National Day few years back and decided to write something about it.
When the kids were at very young age, I like to engage them in Art & Craft. Using art & craft to teach them on alphabets is good and interesting as they got to color or create something out of recycled items to form something related with the alphabet. It could leave a deeper impression on them.
Not sure was it because I had engaged them in these activities at a very young age, the teachers always commented that the children love to draw and they draw very nice. They had no problem getting their hands dirty with paint or cutting things using scissors.
However, with the overwhelming school activities and homework, they are often left with less time to do any art & crafts.
Below are one of the moments when they were free and got the mood to do some painting activities. Since that day happened to be National Day, I had suggested to them to paint something related to National Day instead.
See the video how they enjoyed painting on National Day.
Papa recently bought MTG cards online. The card game which he played when he was younger. Papa taught the kids on playing the game. Everyday, Izaac asked Papa whether he can play the card game. Sometimes, Izaac managed to win a game or 2. Here's another game between papa and Izaac.
Well, girls will be girls. I remember when Athina is still a baby, she dislikes people to touch her hair. Now, she doesn't mind at all.
She will want her hair to be tied and she doesn't mind having her head bonded by hair band.
When she knows that her picture is being taken. She will smile sweetly at the camera.
She is able to pose different poses when I told her to.
Here's a few of her sweet smiling poses.

Here's another of Athina pose. Having the new nexus s phone, is also the kids new gadgets for games. The laptop and old PC that papa Tang set for them have been left aside ever since I bought the phone.
Not only Amilie and Izaac, Athina also love the phone. I manage to find game suitable for her.
She also love taking pictures. Here's another one she wanted me to take for her.

One evening, when I was on my way home from work. Izaac called me on the phone. Here's the conversation that we had...
Izaac: Mummy, my birthday over already? (more…)
Athina is able to hold herself up with support of anything that she can hold on. See how she is using the Mega Blocks Box as a support to hold herself.

She only stand awhile and her real intention was to open the box to play the blocks in the box. She took awhile to figure how to take out the cover. (more…)
For Athina 7th Month, she loved to smile more and more. I managed to capture a few picture of her smiling so sweetly.
