Gift for the Gifted

Arrow #3 was performing in the school musical - drama presentation. She had worked hard on this, not only practising long hours, but often helping to teach the other dancers too, especially the new ones. Her acting and singing were so very nice. The producer really cast the roles well. 

On the day of their second performance, Hubby decides to do what he did last year at the church performance. He surprised her with a beautiful bouquet. 
Isn't this lovely? So very nice of our florist friend. She did such a lovely arrangement, and such a special one too.

We smuggled the bouquet into the house and as I was distracting her and talking loudly, Hubby re-arranged our fridge in the wet kitchen and put the bouquet in. Later we put the bouquet in a big bag and took it to the performance.

Blessed. It was the largest bouquet of the evening. Haha!

Daddy's Girl

He had been away for a few days. Prior to that, he had gone away for a few days too.

So when he came back, he was bearing gifts. Simple things. He didn't have to buy them. But it was enough to show us that he had thought about us. 

Chocolates for me - yes my weakness.

And this little box of goodies for Arrow #3. A hotel room gift actually. But it was just right for her. She just fell in love with the box even before she opened to view the contents. 
What a Dad she has! What a Hubby I have. Thankful!

She was just lying in bed and going through her mail. Then she moved on to the postings. She was getting ready for bed.

Suddenly burst into laughter. Peals of laughter. 

She glanced at me, noting my bemused look and gasped, "I'll send it to you"

I received the link in seconds and clicked away.

I looked

And I laughed aloud too.
My daughter and I have fun in a strange interactive way sometimes.

Big n Littl' Stuff

Came across this gem and posted it. Touched when eldest Arrow came on and said not to worry and that I had done a good job. Awwwwwwwww

Poignant Moment

Taking photos is a hobby.

Whilst others cam-whore, close ups are favourites of mine. 

This brings back memories of times when my older ones were around. We were at lunch. This was the table display. 
Suddenly missing my "boys".

Ah well....

Momma n Dotter Moments

We decided to do some baking again. Arrow #3 has her way and I have mine. Inevitably we start off clashing a little. Then we settle down in our own way. 

Final product is pretty good and more importantly, we are reconciled and not enemies! 

The next morning, I pack them away nicely. The smaller boxes contain the smaller cupcakes. The bigger contain the medium ones.
Every single one is to be given away eventually. I think Arrow #3 and I have had an overdose of this recipe ourselves! Haha!

The Things Mommas Do

I found this new shoe shop which I really liked. They sold end of range stocks and arranged them according to size. This meant you would know immediately if the size of a particular style you wanted was available or not. The choices were limited, but still good.

As Arrow #3 has small feet and she finds it hard to find good shoes that fit, I decided that this was an excellent place to introduce her to.

And she loved it.

Only problem was, so do I.

And I came away with another extra pair of shoes.
You have to admit though - they do look good don't they? Haha!

Art of Aptness

I love my tea. Arrow #3 knows that well. So what does she do? She gets me the most apt gift. 

The cup is a Mother's Day gift. 

The brew is my favourite Earl Grey.

It's the coaster....

Don't you think it and the cup look good together? As if this was a set. 
She has this knack of seeing things and putting them together. Art of Aptness I call it....

Something About Music

I love music. Most music that is. I don't like the noisy type unless I can make out the words. 

I especially love live music. It was a joy when during one season we often had Arrow #1 on the piano, Arrow #2 on the guitar, foster son on the synthesizer doing percussion, Arrow #3 and I singing our heads off, and Hubby humming along. This weekly event was always something I really looked forward to. 

Over time, the house got quiet as one by one the older ones left.

Imagine my joy when I came home one day to find Arrow #3 on the piano.
All I can say is "MORE! MORE!" Haha!

Oh, and just in case you think she doesn't play much, she actually plays the bass guitar more, an instrument which is not exactly a solo one. So she doesn't get it out much at home....

Welcome Welcome

I was quite glad to be asked - could the youth worship team come by our place for a thanksgiving dinner cum looking ahead to 2013 time? SURE~ But ummm, make sure the place is cleaned up after? Thanks!
So it was. An evening of good food, good fellowship and good chats, followed by good clearing up after. Thank You Lord!

It Finally Happened!

It has finally happened! 
The youngest is actually behind the wheel! 
Oh my oh my! 
Hubby had taught me to drive. He gave Arrow #1 and Arrow #2 their first lessons. It seemed only right that he gave Arrow #3 her first lesson too. Wow. Time flies.

Thankful that the children are growing up well. Continue to pray for them almost daily. May we grow in wisdom, spiritual stature and fear of the Lord.
