Faraya Mzaar, Lebanon, March 2012

I don't think there will be any skiing anytime soon.
Awesome! As they say in Oz! 
This magical place is half an hour away from my parents' place.
All I can think of is: all this snow and Skye is missing it and has never seen it.

How did I cut that Cake?

A lot of people asked me how I actually managed to cut that cake.
Well, here is your answer and luckily I have a picture too to back it up.
There was no elegant way to cut it basically. Once that ribbon was off, those Kit kat blocks went FLOP!
Everyone laughed. It was just an usual fun cake.

Happy Mother's Day.

Miss you Mum...Hope you have a great day.
To all the mothers out there, happy mother's day.
It is the toughest job on this planet, the least noticeable and yet the most rewarding.
I am going to ask for a raise from my boss first thing in the morning, after I give her her milk.

Skye is Four!!!!

Time flies by....And another birthday! I cannot believe that she is four!
It was a wonderful day in particular because Michael took the day off to spend it with us. So we went to the beach and we saw dolphins maybe 50 meters far from us!

I really think it is wise working with that age group to have birthday parties outside your house, for insurance purposes! My house is still in one piece and I kept it that way by arranging the party outdoors in town. It was so much fun and less stressful.
Skye and I have been working on the decoration and the colourful crafts for days. She wanted an all-the-colours theme birthday party.

The birthday party was a blast. The highlight of the party was the cake. You should have seen the kids' reaction! Once on the table, they could not keep their hands off of it! I have never seen such a funny reaction! Everyone wanted a piece of that cake and noone was willing to wait. They wanted to touch, to smell it, to bath in it. They were shrieking of excitement. Hilarious! I blame the candy and the colours. I am actually quite proud of baking it!
Then at the end, we had a treasure hunt and the parents hid lots of candy and sweets in the garden for them to find.

Skye had a very special day thanks to everyone who made it happen. Thank you for all your kind wishes and your thoughtful gifts.
One of the major hits other than the cake was the tent mommy and daddy bought for her and all the pretty glittery gifts, legos, toys and games she received. Thank you again.
