Took the boys for their annual checkup today! Ah Lo has grown 3.125 inches and Dai Bee 1.875 inches since last year. In terms of height wise, Ah Lo is in the 97 percentile and 88 percentile in weight. For Dai Bee, he’s in the 75% for weight and height.  They left the doctor’s office with 2 shots! Untitled

How cool is to have a ceramist as our neighbor? Yes, the husband is a poet and the Mrs. is now a ceramist (and a retired English teacher!) The boys help them with little things (pick up newspapers when they travel, water plants, etc.) and in exchange, she invited the boys to come over her studio working with clay. They spend a some time with her today and had a blast. Thank goodness she lives so close (totally save on the travel time *wink*)

Meatless Monday is serving garlic chayotes, oyster mushrooms and chestnuts over a head of lettuce, and finally, stir fry enoki mushrooms, wood ear, with bean curd skin. Luckily, I always have the last couple of items at home which is a great help on meatless Mondays!IMG_9756With three dishes and a pot of soup, we still don’t have much leftovers for the boys to pack lunch the next day. They are making their own lunch after dinner (for those days we don’t have leftovers). The thought of me making cute little bento boxes for them not too long ago, shows that times have changed for sure. IMG_9761Untitled.png

If the boys had the choice, they’d probably chow down a box of cereals every morning, because it’s the easiest. On weekends, I would show the boys make simple breakfast. Today, they learned how to make omelette with bell peppers, bacon and onions. Ah Lo decided to add some ground peppers because he knows best.breakfastcooking

So great this summer the boys are helping out with dinner. Today, they are pretty much the lead cooks for making our meatless Monday meals. IMG_9093IMG_9092Meals made from the heart always taste so much better.IMG_9090

Boys off to overnight camp for a week! Our honeymoon officially starts now…Untitled

The brothers performed at Onlok Senior Home yesterday. It was a Friday, so we couldn’t get too many people to participate. Dai Bee played most of the time with 5 songs while Ah Lo played 2. One of the songs Dai Bee played was a Chinese song (月亮代表我的心). The seniors clapped with the tune and sang along. It was the sweetest thing to watch. Glad the boys are much more comfortable performing for others now. It’s such a special gift to be able to play music. They just don’t know it yet.
