Our family is getting into the holiday spirit! We will be spending this holiday season as a family of three in Singapore. Unfortunately we are not able to make the trip back home and have no travel plans. It will be great to spend our first Christmas holiday with Addy at our home.
Christmas is one of my favorite holidays because of fun festivities and family traditions. It can sometimes be hard to get in the festive season when it’s 90 degrees out each day in Singapore, hence our December project. We are celebrating the 25 days leading up to Christmas with fun activities. Some activities are Singapore specific, others are family traditions and some are just traditional Christmas activities. Some things Addy and I will be doing while Taylor is at work and others we will be doing as a family in the evening or on the weekends. I’ll share each week our holiday adventures. We hope you enjoy!
December 1st: Gardens by the Bay
To get into the holiday spirit we started off with visiting Gardens by the Bay. Katie and Andrew joined Addy and I on an evening adventure. Going here exceeded our holiday expectations! The decorations and lights were amazing. We started off by visiting the cloud forest and flower domes then headed outdoors to explore. We wondered around the park until dusk where we headed to the Super Tree Grove where there was a Christmas village set up. We ate dinner and waited for the light show. The show was set to Christmas music. We all loved it, especially Addy. She was mesmerized. After the light show we waited around for the snow fall. It was magical! It almost felt like we were back home, only the shorts and tank tops brought us back to reality. Walking back to the taxi stand we observed more magical Christmas lights.

December 2nd: Botanic Gardens
December 3rd: Christmas Craft
Last night was pinterest project night around our house. With Katie’s help we created Mistletoes. Addy has very ticklish feet so she did not enjoy the paint on her toes, but quickly got over that as soon as the project was completed.
