Santa is cool….

This year Santa is confused what to give to Jasmine and Edgar
Especially because Edgar has expensive thing in his wish list
But Edgar got a great idea, He will gave Santa some money from his saving
so that Santa wont be burden to buy him an expensive gift

So Santa gave Edgar and Jasmine each a gift voucher from Matahari Dept Store
So they can choose what they want and add from their own money if is not enough
Santa is smart and cool, isn’t he or she?

2012 vs 2014

For couple years my big JACOBS family have our family pictures taken. It’s a special moment because everybody are in the same city. My brother Pierre and his family has been living abroad for sometimes, and thank God every Christmas he come back to visit. These pictures took at the same place Setiabudi Building near my church. Only we choose different spot and this year the decoration is so festive. Other than we miss my sister Debby who is now study in South Korea, we also miss my nephew Bryan and Little Brigusto who is a new addition in the family. But over all we had a great times….

welcoming 2015…

We haven’t take picture as family in front of our Christmas tree ever since it put on (Dec 5). So last Sunday before going to church I insist to have it because we will put it down soon. And I will regret if I miss the opportunity. I prepared my son black shirt to match my dress, my husband and daughter politely followed, so we all in black…..I love the taking pictures in this spot in the morning, the light is just perfect, made us look fresh and bright. Happy New Year!!!

September birthdays….

 

September, 9 is the Birthday of our Pastor Reby Walandouw. We planned a surprise party for him by come to his house early in the morning. It happen that my husband not felling well, we’re getting into argument and on the way to his house we got flat tire, so we arrived late. Everybody already there laughing, had breakfast and we join the sharing part. Image

My son Edgar’s Birthday, September 12. We invite my family to have dinner at my brother”s Joe new street foot restaurant “Meja 77”. His wife Ahlyn prepared chicken and fish BBQ for us. The food was ok, is just something wrong with the light, so we ate in candle light.Image

My Mom Birthday, September 22. We had dinner at her place. Again we order the same food from my brother. Its always a wonderful moment to be able to make our parents happy because they have done so many things for us and we can’t thank them enough. Too bad my brother David and his family couldn’t make it, and my Brother Pierre is so far away in Africa. Image

our family friends: Johnson and Suryani

Yesterday was Moslem Holiday
I thought I’ll stay home with my family
but a family invite us to go to the beach
can’t resist an offer like these.

early in the morning we get ready
the kids are so excited and happy
Try to keep up with their spirit
eventhough my body felt tired a bit

Johnson and Suryani are our old friends
We were close to each other as a young couples
Suryani and I get pregnant almost the same time
So Angel born only a week early from Jasmine

Although we end up moved to the south
our friendship keeps going on
they visit us when I delivered Edgar
not long after that their son Rio was born

Life goes on and the kids get bigger
they meet each other on Sunday school at church
from one sleep over and lots of SMS
now they all become best friends

South to West is not a short distance
but our hearts are connect to each other
yesterday on the beach we imagine our future
We’ll have a holiday together with our grandchildren

this saturday I…

went to my parents house in the morning,
take a walk on the hill in the neighborhood.
the weather was great the skies are light blue
saw people jump from a chopper with parachutes.
Met my brother and his wife they wear red t-shirt
they’re attended the family day of their daughter’s school
but what excite me the most are…

Jump with my daughter.

Run down the hill.

Try to cheer up my son.

Get a kiss from my husband.

am a happy woman…
