Christmas is just around the corner....

This year Christmas will be different. Why? Because for the first time, instead of taking out the artificial old Christmas tree that I have been using for the past 5 years, I’m using the real Christmas tree!!! I have been planting this tree for almost 5 years and finally it grow to the height that I wish.
Taadaaa…doesn’t real Christmas tree bring more Christmas spirit? Both Jona and Iz are so happy when they decorate the tree and the best part is the decoration stuff won’t drop down so easily anymore and no one will go and shake it again – to let out his anger J (Give a guess who is he??).

And, this year Christmas, I can truly see my boys are growing up. When I started doing some Christmas shopping end of last month ~ buying Christmas present for my nephew and niece, Jona and Iz also want their present as well and as usual, they also want their present to be wrap up. I told them that if the present is wrapping up, then, they can’t open it immediately once they back home. Otherwise it will be meaningless to wrap it. So, both agree to open it on Christmas day.
Can you believe? Jona didn’t even nag or cry or ask me whether he can open the present. Instead when he gets bored, he will just play with it without open it. I can see he is really a patient boy. Compare to Iz, once back home, woke up from sleep, forgotten all his promise already. From time to time, he will cry, throw tantrum, pleading to open his present. But, at the end, he didn’t open it as well when I’m firm with my decision.

My wish is hoping they won’t open the present till Christmas day….It will bring lot of meaning to meJ. Here I would like to wish everyone Merry Christmas and may you & your family be blessed throughout the year.
