We are all so happy to say goodbye to 2020. To celebrate, Uncle Johnny made macarons and the kids helped out.
Mama flew back in time to enjoy some hot pot and to do the countdown to 2021. This was the first time spent NYE with the family all together. Happy New Year!
It’s cool how the kids pair off throughout the day. Today, Peanut took a nap with Leela.
Later in the day, he took a walk with Thomas.
Peanut drew and wrote this today: “I do not like Kaylee and Alice playing iPad”.
Luckily he had Leela to play with and they enjoyed the pretend s’mores toy. It’s nice to have cousins.
Today, Mama took the kids to Disney’s California Adventure Park to take a walk. It’s not officially open but they had Buena Vista open for shopping.
We had to keep our masks on and they were very strict about not eating or drinking in the area. None of the food places were open and if they sold snacks, they had to be sealed and taken outside of the park to be eaten.
It was pretty empty and kinda eerie to be there.
Leela and Alice joined us later and Uncle Johnny bought everyone these cool plushies that can sit on your shoulder.
Too bad even the trolley wasn’t open or running. At least we got a cute photo of the kids.
Merry Christmas!! We are gonna keep out PJs on until lunch today!
Christmas Day was spent at Toni and Thomas’ house with Round 2 of presents in the late morning.
It’s Christmas Eve and the kids got to open some of their presents this morning!!
The little kids passed the time collecting acorns in front of Leela and Alice’s house today.
Alice and Janie put together a scavenger hunt for the little ones today. They drew pictures of different animals on cards and taped them to plastic knives that they hid around the neighborhood. Each kid took turns looking for an animal until they were all found.
We took a drive to Chinatown today in search of Bruce Lee, almond cookies, a broom, and tasty Thai food.
The freeways were so empty that it took only 20 mins to get there from Cerritos and Chinatown was equally empty.
We found Bruce Lee pretty quickly and got some photos taken.
We also went to Phoenix Bakery and got some yummy almond cookies and other treats.
For lunch, we went to LAX-C and had some Thai street food. SOOOOO TASTY.
Peanut also go to eat the strawberry cake he wanted from the bakery.
At LAX-C, we went on the hunt for a specific broom that Yai asked for. We found it toward the entrance and made sure it was the same one that Yai has at home. Perfect!
We checked everything off the list today and had so much fun too!
Yai bought the kids donuts this morning. These guys love sprinkle donuts.
Janie later showed the rest of the kids how to make paper airplanes.
Later that afternoon, we hopped back on the plane and headed back to Alameda. These kids were exhausted and both fell asleep on the way up.
