May peace break into your home and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words …
May 2012 be the best year of your life!
Wishing you and your family to be the proud owner of infinite happiness and good health in this new year…
HappyNew Year2012 !!!
P.S: This is the same message from last year. Not that I didn’t think of any other words but this impressed me better :)
Cards made for next door Patti’s (Grandma’s) - We made 3 cards similar to this (inspired from Shruti’s this post) and gifted the patti’s with gift cards this year.. It was Adi’s idea to make a pouch on right side of the card to insert the gift cards :)
Card for R akka – who is staying with us for short time..
Christmas cakes – All the cakes made by her in my absence.. Oh there were some cup cakes too.. I missed to click them..
Adi used play dough cake making machine to bake make these cakes… this was one of the gift Santa gave her this year.. I know its a 3 yr old thingie but this girl she wanted it now.. What can I say? Santa just gets them what they wish for so she got it :)
And a glittery butterfly for mommy – Its the Christmas gift she gave to me (posting again to include in artsy craftsy list ;) )
Pot holders - Another gift she got from Santa. I don’t know if this qualifies for Christmas crafts theme but publishing as Adi spent quiet some hours with all patience to make these holders. You should have seen her posture..It was funny.. Sitting on the carpet for hours resting her back on couch with legs stretched, ankles criss crossed, holding the plastic loom closer to her and weaving the patterns with fabric loops like how the grandma’s do.. She finished two per day. It was so surprising to see her interest in weaving the patterns :)
this was the outer cover of the kit (Just in case if you are interested in buying for your kid).. I loved it but the girl is not letting me to use the holders. She doesn’t want them to get old. The maximum I can do is touch them.. She might even keep it in the locker soon.. :)
Drafted on Dec 6th.. Publishing without modifying anything…
Alright for the treats I gave an option in previous post comment section as
how about a virtual one? I will make something at home and share it with you all virtually in this blog? I will give another treat when we meet… fair enough?
Scribby already said no to this.. She wants real treat.. when we meet okay Scribby?
How about others? raise your hands comment on this space if you want a virtual treat :)
Our first Christmas tree is up at home. It looks fabulous with all those ornaments. As a first gift my sweetie pie made a shiny butterfly for me and kept it under the tree.. And then was this conversation
Adi: Amma what gift do you want? I: (the generous lady in me said) I don’t want anything pattumma.. Adi: No, you have to say something (anbu thollai you know – lovely trouble :) ) I: Okay I want you to stay happy and healthy.. that will be the greatest gift for me. Adi: No, I can’t make or buy that.. Tell me something that we can buy and pack in a gift box. I will ask appa to buy it for you I: Hmmm may be a diamond ring? Adi: Then? I: Then what I already said a DIAMOND RING.. Adi: Only that? Are you sure you don’t want anything else? Is that alone enough for you?
That cracked me up.. May be she thought diamond ring is that item you get in a dollar store :) God bless her and her future partner…
Her belief about Santa is that parents buy the gift and give it to Santa and then Santa brings it to the kids. She has been asking me “where/when/how do you meet Santa?”.. So, for her gift she cooly said you guys already know what I have been asking for such a long time so better buy that and give it to Santa.. :(
left one is the inspiration
On a completely different note she left this note for her daddy at door step few weeks back after we both cleaned the house
If you couldn’t read it – “Please do not mess the house because baby and mommy just clean it now” :)
Yayyyyyy we won the prestigious artsy craftsy challange award this month.. Thanks Shruti.. Adi was mighty happy when she heard this news as first thing in the morning. Thanks to summerscript for informing me.
And Adi has been selected as the student of the week at school. She received a pencil, bookmark and bubble blower as gift from her teacher.. :)
