Salmon cakes

Just a quick blog about the salmon cakes that I made for Ali last week:


Here is Ali's dinner plate, served with salmon cakes (all cut up nicely), applesauce and rice.  She is okay with the salmon cakes, but not crazy with the applesauce.  Daddy seemed to enjoy them more than Ali for some reason.  Hahhaa....

Fun^3

We had Allison's family and Nolan's family over for dinner on Saturday.  It was loads of fun to see the three little ones interacting with each other.  I am really glad that Ali has friends that she can see regularly and grow up with.

Here is a picture with Uncle Anthony.  Ali loves playing silly laughs with him.


Ali having time of her life with Nolan's mickey mouse stick.  If you press the button, the star will lit up and start spinning and all the little balls will play around inside the mickey mouse globe.  So cool.  Thanks for sharing your toy with us, Nolan!!!

Allison quietly reading in the corner.  She seemed to like the green monster book quite a bit.
Ali checking out Nolan's toy laptop under his supervision.  Hey, you never know what this girl is up to sometimes.
The two little girls are hugging each other, but for some reason, it looks like they are pushing each other away.

Nolan and Allison sharing a toy together.  So peaceful.
Thanks for coming over and hanging out with us.  We should do this more often!!!  =)

CNY family dinner

Let's face it.  Chinese New Year is all about eating and red packets.  We had a big family dinner some time ago and I didn't have a chance to blog about it until now.  One of the traditions is to wear new things on New Year's day, so this year, I got Ali new winter accessories.  I have been really busy knitting her a cowl and a pair of legwarmers and for myself, a cowl and a pair of mittens.  Yup, this is another secret obsession that I have - to have matching outfits with Ali.


One of my coworkers is a crazy knitter and she introduced us to this shop that sells nothing but buttons.  Look at this cute teddy bear button, so adorable!!!

It seems like every time the little ones meet, we have to make them kiss each other.  Ali seems to really like the kisses from her Uncle Caleb:


...and Uncle Andrew.  Look how much she enjoyed being kissed by them!

Here is a picture of Great-grand with the two boys.

Saturday Open Gym

I have not been this sick for a loonnnnng time.  Even though I was sick as a dog, I have to be grateful that I don't have to go to work this Friday and coming Monday because of district closure days.  In a way, I really hated the fact that I am sick on a long weekend, but it is also super nice to just stay home without worrying losing more sick days or that I have to prep for a sub. 

Feeling miserable for the last few days also reminded me how wonderful my hubby is.  Ali's dada brought her to an open gym so that I can sleep and rest at home.  Ali had a great time.  Well, towards the end, I suppose.  The fact is, my baby girl is a chicken and is always scared of trying new things.  From what my hubby told me, there are a lot of really cool toys.  Instead of playing with them, Ali basically just walked around and collected the pucks that they use to separate different play areas.  

Ali checking out this cool rocker.  Hubby tried to put her in it, but she got out right away.  Too scared!!

Kung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy Chinese New Year!!!!  Wishing everyone a very happy year of the Rabbit!!!  I wanted to do a photoshoot of Ali in Chinese traditional outfits last week, but didn't really have time to do it now.  Well, better late than never!!

Here is our little model getting ready.  
A:  "Mommy, I am not ready yet.  Let me go back to my room and get my pants first."


Our doll trying to put the hanger away (actually who am I kidding, she is playing with the hanger and I am trying to take it away somehow).

"Kung hay fat choy!!!!!  Lai see dul loy!!!!"
"Let me count...one two three...wahhhhhh...."
"Yay, I am rich!!!!"


Here is Ali doing her "fashionista" pose.
