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.
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.
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.
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.
The kids decorated turkey cookies today! The icing was pretty thick but they managed to get the job done.
Here’s Janie’s completed cookie!
For Thanksgiving, Janie helped Dada quite a bit. She even prepped and cooked the mushrooms herself.
What a big girl we have now!
Dinner was delicious and we were so happy to be with the family for Thanksgiving this year. It was are first time in many years!!
The kids tried out Uncle Johnny’s new basketball hoop and then played in the bounce house.
When it was nap time, Leela and Peanut went for a ride with Mama and Uncle Johnny to pick up Thanksgiving pies. Worked like a charm.
We celebrated Uncle Jason’s Birthday a little early tonight. Happy Birthday, Uncle Jason!
