Elmerészkedett hozzánk a Mikulás az idén is, még ha a messzi, muzulmán Dohában is lakunk:-), de ahol jó kislányok laknak, oda bizony megy a Mikulás!

A jó kislányunkkal valószínûleg nem kellett volna közölnünk, hogy jönni fog éjjel a Mikulás - fôleg mivel az ô tudomása szerint a Mikulás egy piros ruhás, dán akcentussal angolul beszélül ember, aki egy hangos Harley Davidsonon jön:-)-, mivel így kb. 1 órán keresztül nem volt hajlandó elalduni tegnap este, és utána persze egész éjjel folytatódott a tortúra...

De reggel aztán már minden rendben volt és örömmel mentünk megnézni, ugyan mit tett a Mikulás a rózsaszín gumicsizmába:-), de mindezt csak azután, hogy 100%-ig meggyôzôdött arról, már elment a Mikulás...
A csokoládén kívül nem nagyon éredekelte más a gyermekünket, úgy kellett ráerôltetni a többi ajándékot:-)..., hogy ugyan legalább egy pillantást vessen már rájuk...
A teknôcös pizsamának azért volt sikere, bár ha játék lett volna a szatyorban, akkor biztos nagyobb intenzitással pakolta volna ôket...

Boldog névnapot kívánunk a Miklósoknak!

Christmas lunch at Nasser Gardens

We had the compound Christmas lunch on Saturday the 4th of December. It was strange to listen to Christmas music and waiting for Santa to arrive outside in 30 degrees Celsius:-).

We had a lovely time, everybody prepared some food, had drinks, took their own table and chairs outside. It was quite convenient for us, as it took place just in front of our house.

"I think, I can see Santa coming!"

There he is, arriving on his bike:-)...
... and he had a helper with him:-)...

Soffi was horrified of him at first:-)...
... and he had presents for everyone...
...for Soffi too:
Bye bye Santa! Thank you for the presents!:-)

Playdate with Jake

The two best friends playing together... always ends with crying whenever it's time to go home...:-), they just love eachother...

Soffi sings Cifra Palota:-)

Finally, I could catch her singing, she always stops otherwise, as soon as she sees the camera...

Soffi's birthday at Starfish

On Sunday they celebrated Soffi's birthday at the nursery. The staff decorated the classroom, I brought mini cupcakes, carrots, cucumbers and some juice (forgot the candles) and then they had a mini birthday party for her! They do it for all the kids, as long as the parents want to.
They hang up a Happy Birthday Soffi sign, so sweet people!The kids enjoyed the mini cupcakes, the nursery staff told me that nobody had their lunch later on. Ups, I hope that the other parents don't hate me for that:-).

SOFFI's 2nd birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The day has arrived, Soffi has turned two last Friday! Unbelievable, it seems like she was just born, and she is a real lady, who loves clothes, shoes and dolls:-).

We arranged a party for her in our garden, as the weather is just lovely now for being outside. We've invited 23 children and their parents. As we've been to a couple of parties here now, we've learnt that a birthday party has a starting and an ending time as well, so don't need to be worried about having 20 kids running around your house late in the evening. It was strange for us at first, but now I just think, it's very practical.

Soffi woke up 5:30 am on her birthday, which is very nice, compared to she was up at 3:30 am on the day we held the Gulyás party:-). So we had a lovely time in the morning opening her presents, trying everything on, playing with everything, then a nice breakfast and then we were ready to go on with the preparations to the party.

Helping daddy with hanging up the decorations:

Home made Hungarian flags:-)
The party scene before the party's started:
I made the balloons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The guests started to arrive at 3 pm, and the big present opening begun:
My attempt to a party game...
We had mini pizzas, sussage rolls, fruit and vegetables, chips and Peter's done a little barbecue:
The birthday cake! (Not home made:-))
Ready to sing the song:Happy birthday to you! (Or in Soffi's version: "happy to you")She was all shy, missed over the half of her party, because she was either hanging on me or Peter, she started first playing on her own after we cut the cake. I think she was just overwhelmed by all these people:-).
At 5 pm it's already dark here, but we had guests who arrived just when we were finishing the party...
With Phillippa, one of Soffi's favourite neighbours:-)
The morning after: all party presents had to be open properly:
