Ugh! Late post again!

Last Saturday, we held lil’ bro’s 2nd birthday party at home. That’s why it was kinda busy around here. The next day, I was too zonked out to do anything and skipped blogging Kids’ Style.

Most of the pictures were taken while everybody’s in action; candid shots! So I had to do a lot of cutting, and cropping of heads, arms, etc. to make a decent outfit post.

Here it goes:

I’ll do a post on lil’ bro’s train party @ my blog rainydazeee.com,  probably later today or…. whenever I feel like it! :D

It’s time to share your kids outfit shots.  Come and add your link below!

Let’s take a trip back to memory lane this time, back to summer of 2011 when it was filled with glorious vacations to other European cities and mostly lazing around.

The whole family was all giddy with excitement, as you can see, once we got to Prague airport, the kids couldn’t contain themselves and were all over the place, running, including Big Daddy.

We’ve landed! During the whole trip, Caity was constantly babbling about meeting her Mama Cookie and cousins.  Oh yeah, she had been waiting for that day!

I love how Helsinki Airport is kid-friendly.  They have this stroller for kids who are too tired to walk (in lil’ bro’s case, he had to be strapped or else he’d run away!)

tiger trunki

Caity’s travel wouldn’t be complete without her Tipu the Tiger Trunki. It’s a ride-on luggage for children, which is too cute and very convenient. Don’t be deceived by its small size, it’s got lots of space inside for kid’s stuff; we fill it up with nappies, books, crayons, food, and other important things for the little traveler.

Let’s see where Caity and her Trunki will go to this year for vacation. Hmmmm… I can already smell the tropical air!

Caity and her lil’ bro love to camp in our bed before they go to sleep at night. They’d tumble, jump or hide under blankets while waiting for me to get them settled. Other times, they’d take their books and read together. I am glad that these two are getting along quite well lately; the credit goes to Caity who is playing her role as big sis excellently. She learned how to leverage lil’ bro’s presence in her life and made him her number 1 playmate. Their fights are getting lesser and lesser and they both are learning how it is to share, take turns, and most of all enjoy each others’ company.

Duh, red eye!

The day before the New Year’s eve, my friends and I had a small party at A’s house. Automatically, our children got to have an instant play date, much to their excitement. It has been quite sometime since they all got together, so it was a delightful reunion for them! 
Photobucket
A happy chaos ensued when each of their Titas handed them gifts. It was like Christmas all over again for them! These kids are more or less a year apart in ages… Leah is 6, Nikki 5, Martin & Caity 4 and little Adie who’s almost 2 y/o.  No quarrels that night!

Look! Caity and Nikki got identical dresses!
Aside from the dress, she also got matching cap & shawl, angry birds’ purse, smurf toy, and puzzle. Thank you pretty titas for the gifts! Caity and lil’ bro were surely pleased.

@ home…  She’s wearing a floral dress from C&A, red tights from long, long time ago and her overused glitter flats from H&M. Gray teddy is a gift from M’s office.

Not such a happy look, but anywayz, Happy New Year everyone!!!  All the best for this year, 2012!

Caity’s grandparents came in the afternoon of the 24th, and we only prepared Christmas Eve appetizers as they plan to have dinner in their home, after the gifts have been opened.

She is all ready to attack the food!

After the meal, Bába (grandma) huddled both kids @ little bro’s room, while M brought in the Christmas from the balcony where we hid it out from the children’s reach. Děda (grandpa) and I helped placed all the gifts ’round the tree.  Once everything was ready, the light in the room was turned off leaving the Christmas lights blinking in the dark.  Then M rang the bell, signalling that *Ježíšek (baby Jesus) came and left gifts for everyone. Czech children are made to believe that the gift-giver is baby Jesus, not Santa Claus.

christmas eve

The kids ran to the living room and tadannnn!  They were in awe with all the gifts they saw, especially Caity.  “Vánoce!!!” (Christmas!)  She excitedly shouted.

With little bro, who was too occupied with eating the chocolate he got from the tree, oblivious to the surprises awaiting for him to unwrap.

We made one of Caity’s wishes come true.  She got a scooter!  And she also got another bike, this time with pedals! Weeee! Lots of ride-on toys for her this year.

Outfit:
Maroon dress – Youngland (which looked similar to the cloth hugging the Christmas tree base, duh!!!)
Hearts stockings – C&A
Glitter flats – H&M

It was hard to make the kids go to bed that night, coz all they wanted was to play with their new toys.  Caity slept with the scooter by her bedside.

The next day, Christmas, we had a brunch at Hotel Hoffmeister Restaurant with the grandparents…

…hugging the white dog which she wanted to bring home. 

Only borrow, Mama...”.  she begged. Of course, the toy had to stay.

Finally, she got hungry and eat.

We went home after we’re all stuffed with the buffet style brunch, and the kids all worn out from their messed up nap schedules. Later at night, we attended the Christmas Mass and Caity was too excited to say hello and thank you to baby Jesus for all the gifts she got. Thank you Lord, for the gifts!

Whew! All in all, it was a wonderful Christmas and holidays spent with family and friends, that is why Kids’ Style is posting late. Sorry! The kids were happy with what they received, so M and I declared our Christmas shopping a success.

On Caity’s 4th birthday, she got a big doll any little girl would fancy. But one look at it and she shoved the gift away, refusing to accept it. Weee! The poor thing is hidden in the cabinet waiting for the chance to play with Caity.  I’ve noticed tough that she likes playing with her small dolls. So its not that she doesn’t like dolls at all.  I guess big isn’t her type and she is being choosy. Lately she’s even asking me to buy her Moxie dolls, specifically the Magic Hair Colour Streak Studio Dolls coz she wants to color their hair too. Oh well…

When we went out earlier, she asked if she can take her baby with us.  She just looked irresistibly cute carrying the rocker… like a mini Mama!

We left it in the car later as we’ve got too many things to mind already. We told her, baby doll would feel cold outside. :P

waiting for trdlo

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas… la, la, la, la!  Lots of Christmas markets all over Prague can be found, and the smell of heavenly baked scents always find its way to our nostrils. Caity always requests for trdlo or trdelnik, a crusty pastry rolled in sugar with cinnamon and nuts. Yum!

Sweet love. :) Hubby and Caity were waiting for me and Adie (lil’ bro) at our building entrance, opening their arms wide for Adie; as we got nearer, the two kids ran to each other and hugged.

December 11th, 2011Kids’ Style # 5 – In white

Last Monday, Caity and her classmates were asked to go to school dressed in white. It was St. Nicholas Day and the Czechs celebrate this occasion with the character of St. Nicholas going around (with him are the Devil and Angel), asking kids if they’ve been good or bad. Good kids get rewards/treats and the bad kids will be placed in the Devil’s sack or get a charcoal or potatoes. I’ve heard that parents use this event to discipline their kids to be always nice, or else the Devil will punish them. I don’t know if its effective. (:

So here is Caity  when she got home from school (just ignore lil’ bro in the picture):

white dress

She’s wearing a silk dress with polka dots (not so clear) all over it, and tied with a ribbon at the back paired with a pretty pair of silver glitter ballet flats.

December 9th, 2011School Project – Glazed bowl

Caity came home the other day, proudly handing out this pretty little thing:
platter

It looks like a bowl made from plaster of paris, with embossed leaves and butterfly.  I think they’re supposed to color those objects but Caity managed to made an abstract green/brown smudges on it.

Me thinks it makes for a perfect mini-platter for these sweet brown treats you call chocolates:

Pick one and enjoy! (:

We went to a bazaar at Žižkov area, where the famous Television Tower (with babies crawling) is. Caity was able to buy some puzzles!  Nothing for lil’ bro though!

Then we strolled around the square in front of the church of the Sacred Heart where there was a Christmas Market. Lots of gift items, baked goodies, handcrafted christmas decors and stuff, sausages, jams, and other food were on sale. The smell of Christmas is truly in the air!

I almost bought the Smurfette stuffed toy hanging behind Caity coz she wanted it.  Fortunately, when I told her we’ll choose something different, she calmly replied “Okay“. Hehehe  Was I relieved? You bet I was! I was anticipating more coaxing from her, but she wasn’t bent on getting the toy.
