Christmas Present Opening in London

Christmas videos of opening presents - Enjoy!

"London Bridge is Falling Down, Falling Down, London..."

"London Bridge is Falling Down, Falling Down, London..." I'm sure most of you know that tune and will no doubt be humming it for the next few hrs or more now that it's in your heads.... Ha!! Anyways, there are no London bridges falling down here, just our youngest daughter who didn't want to walk closer to the swans and geese over @ Kensington Gardens lake...she is terrified that the LARGE swans and geese will eat her alive (I have just a little to do with that). So as I tried to walk closer to them, she just falls to the ground in resistance and I end up laughing...Anyways, thought I would share some London photos with all of you and some funny videos. Today, it was just Daddy and the girls and we went to lunch together, and spent hrs @ the Princess Diana Children's Park right behind her home, Kensington Palace - the girls had a blast all bundled up and running around..... We then went to the Milestone Hotel for some hot chocolate and biscuits (cookies) - it was a great Christmas Eve day. My wife and her Mom went shopping so I got to spoil the girls with pasta, pizza, playing, chasing birds and large swans that chased back and to top it off, some hot cocoa!!! I LOVE spoiling them as long as I get to partake a little :) :) If my wife is a good girl, I may just take her for some fancy hot chocolate too...I added a short video of the Milestone Hotel that we stayed at for two nights...quite a place. (Listen closely to the dialogue)

Casino Royale Christmas Party Singapore

Starlene and I had the opportunity to go to our Asia-Pac HQ Christmas party this year and the theme was 'Casino Royale' - Almost all of the men wore James Bond type tuxedos and the women got all dressed up for a night of fine food and fake gambling - It was very cool to get all dressed up and pretend I was James bond. Starlene, I mean 'Natalia' the Russian Spy, (Her name for the night) and I had a blast and both learned how Baccarat works - very fun game, but we're not ready for Macao or Vegas just yet :) Anyways, thought you would enjoy a few photos from this night; Starlene looked GREAT in her dress that she had flown over from the US and altered in Singapore. The party was at the Pan Pacific Hotel and we were fortunate enough to have a babysitter stay all night with the girls and we stayed overnight at the hotel. :) Notice the bonus photos of me next to my boss, one normal height of me and him and one with me stooping dramatically :)

Our Daughter's Deep Thoughts on Singapore

Enjoy - This is our 5 yr old daughter giving us her take on life in Singapore :) We also threw in some additional photos for good measure from our trip last week to the Singapore Flyer; the largest in the WORLD.

Our youngest daughter, just like her daddy, loves a good chocolate shake - thank God they have such a place in Singapore or we may not have made it this long, especially with the heat and humidity!!!

Our oldest is VERY excited about going in the Singapore Flyer 'capsule' in the background. Like her daddy, she is very adventurous and not much scares her... she made the headband that she's wearing :)
