It is Christmas day today. We came back from our mini San Antonio trip last night. It wasn't a great trip at all, with all the heavy rain and cold weather. We were hoping to take the kids on the boat ride at river walk but we didn't even drive into downtown area.

Daddy got back from his long 2 week business trip on Friday. Me and 2 boys went to pick him up from the airport. We were happy to see daddy. It felt like a very long time since we last saw daddy.


Saturday morning came and after we quickly packed we started driving to San Marcos. We stopped at Austin for lunch, we decided to go to central market to buy lunch, and we could buy some other stuff, like fruits. The goat cheese pizza was weird, not very good as I had hoped, but at least it was healthier than fast foods.

 It was pouring rain when we got to the outlet mall, but we managed to shop a little. We met the Lo's family there after we shopped. Daddy bought a pair of Timberland shoes, I bought a down jacket and Daddy bought toy boats for the boys. We didn't get to shop for as long we would like. We  then went to Outback Steakhouse for dinner. The food was not bad, although the steak was overcooked.. We then headed to our hotel. I didn't get the directions very clearly so we got lost a little... and we were all getting very impatient and tired... finally we got to the Courtyard Marriot inn... it was clean and nice.

On the Lord's day morning we went to the meeting in church in San Antonio. It is always nice to blend with the saints. After the meeting we went to a Chinese restaurant to eat, it was quite delicious. Acacia had been very good and letting mommy to eat. After lunch, we decided to head home since it was still cold and raining. We didn't even stop at the Outlet mall, feeling tired and wanting to go home.

So that was our not-very-exciting mini trip. Yesterday 12/24 was Acacia's 5th month birthday, Acacia is already 5 months old. She is becoming a very cute little girl. I can't wait to see her grow up more and more in the days to come.

Merry Xmas!!

Finally winter break is coming... after school tomorrow the boys will have 2+ weeks of
winter break. I can't wait to be able to sleep in !

The boys will have their own Christmas parties in school. I will go to Timothy's with Acacia.
Today we tried to make cookies for the teachers.... didn't work out very well, and they ended up in the trash can. So I had to go back to my original idea, making white chocolate
bars, surprisingly they turned out very well and they taste great too! So that will be the presents for both Ms. Phyllis and Mrs. MacInnis. Hope they like them!

Timothy's scars on his face are almost all healed. What a relief !



Last Thursday I took Acacia and Timothy to Walmart to exchange the fish(we bought some new ones and one passed away..) and I decided to get Acacia's ears pierced. Timothy was very afraid that Acacia would cry loudly, so he hid far away from the scene and covered his ears. I know how much he loves his little baby! I did mentally struggled a little bit, but I still went ahead and let the lady pierce Acacia's ears with gold ear stubs. They look very cute on her and now she looks very girly, for sure no one will ever mistake her as a "cute baby boy" !! I hope when she grows up she wouldn't mind mommy made this decision for her. I remember in my growing up process I always wanted(wished) I had ears pierced but couldn't decide for myself until I was in high school.

2 more days then we will see daddy home! What a LONGGGGGG business trip this has been. 2 weeks is way too long. I hope Acacia still remembers her daddy!
Daddy already bought a digital camera for Jacob for his 7th birthday present. And he promised to buy Timothy a toy boat(per his request). I really don't need any present, just daddy being with us everyday I will be happy.

We turned in Jacob's science project the other day and according to Jacob the teacher and his classmates really liked it ! I am glad he is proud of it because it sure was a lot of work (for mommy!!).

......... HAHA!! It's Timothy in shower after swimming!



We want to take the boys swimming now especially in the winter, so they get some exercise and it helps Jacob's lungs. The water is not too cold, and the boys enjoy playing in the water. Well now Daddy is on business trip, we have to wait a few days. And I plan on enrolling both boys in swimming lessons, hope Timothy will do ok.. he is slowly learning to get his head under water!



This is what Acacia thinks about watching her 2 brothers swimming AND getting water on her face!!

Yesterday I couldn't reach Philip all day... and at the same time I've heard about some people missing in Oregon... so it got me a little worried... but then, Daddy is not in Oregon yet.. he is in Seatle!! HAHA!

Acacia likes her exersaucer:

well, at least she can sit in it for about 10 minutes and play, which is helpful when I can take a shower, or do something in the house real quick.   She now can really sit up well, and sometimes stand in it.  She would also play with the toys. So CUTE!

I was curious to see if Acacia can now sit up by herself....


But NOOOO... and she didn't like it!!!

好冷 !!  好冷 !! 現在是華氏30度, 攝氏低於0度, 標準的大冷天....
but it's really not bad at all in the house since we have the heater on and the temp stays at about 70 degrees.

Daddy is going on a business trip for 2 weeks next Monday to Seatle and Portland, OR. I wish we could all go with him! I don't want to think about it yet... as it will certainly be hard to take care of 3 kids all by myself.. I am sure my mom will help but it's not the same as having daddy home. Every night around 8pm is the busiest time in our household, we have to bath the boys, brushing their teeth, getting them ready for bed, and usually at the same time Acacia is tired and fussy... so it really takes 2 adults to barely handle 3 kids.



On Thursday around lunch time I received a call from Timothy's school, saying he got hurt in the playground, and he was bleeding and crying. I got there and he sure looked miserable. His nose was bleeding, his lips swollen, and there were scratches on his face. What happened was that he wanted to play the swing with his belly, so he ran to jump onto the swing... of course he missed it... so his face smashed into the ground. And the ground was covered with little rocks... OUCH!!
