It was, of course, not a White Christmas in Singapore this year. Or any year. But we still did a good job getting into the holiday spirit. Let’s take a look:
Here’s Nyan and Mommy, getting our little Christmas tree ready, and doing other things to get into the festive spirit:
And a few pieces of artwork that Nyan made (paintings, mostly) in the weeks leading up to Dec. 25:
Grandma and Grandpa, in their never-ending quest to spoil their grandson, had sent over a box full of 24 little presents — one for Nyan to open each morning in December. Here’s just a few of the moments when he was unwrapping.
On Christmas Eve, an aunt was in town, so we had dinner at a Chinese restaurant downtown. And look who stopped by our table!
Finally: the big day. Christmas morning! Daddy asked Nyan to wait til Daddy could get a cup of coffee. It was hard, but Nyan managed to wait:
And then: Attack the presents! He opened them all in a matter of minutes, it seemed. But still managed to play with, and model, some of them
We had a plane to Thailand to catch later in the day. But first: Christmas dinner with Kyle and his family. Here’s Nyan, waiting for the taxi:
Kyle and Nyan played while the food was being prepared. And what a spread! Delicious.
Afterwards, we hung out for a while, playing with toys – including the adults, who played with the virtual reality video game. The kids did too. Fun, if a little silly:
And then….off to Thailand! But we’ll save that for upcoming posts.
