Cleveland - Part 1

DEC 26 2013

We went to Cleveland a day after Christmas to meet Daniel's mom and his sisters. It was sort of like a family reunion. Living far away from our family means we do not get to see each other often enough, be it our family in Malaysia or the ones in the States. So whenever we have these opportunities, we really look forward to them. 

Passing by Chicago

Frozen lake.


The house we rented for a few days. We were the first ones to arrive. After settling  in, we ordered some pizza and just hung out while waiting for the others to arrive.

The kitchen. It's small but functional.

Our bedroom.

The boys are wearing their "bubba teeth" from Grammy.

Happy New Year!

JAN 01 2014

Woke up to see this little guy outside the window. We have lots of squirrel here running around everywhere. It's always fun to see them. 

 We got tons of snow since new year's eve. This is the view from the front door.

These icicles keep growing.

Our neighborhood.

Farhan offered to do the shoveling.

She wanted to go out too.

And so she did.

She was busy scooping ice inside the sled and didn't seem to mind the cold.

It was a bit of a struggle to get her inside the house. I think she really 
enjoyed being outside with all the snow. 

The boys didn't come inside until hours later.

Saw this poor freezing bird from the window.

These two last pictures were taken around 11 pm. The night sky was so bright.

My mind is here...

One of the places we visited when we went back to Malaysia. I stumbled upon this blog - 

while searching for some information about Cameron Highlands.  Despite the heat and ferocious mosquitoes, I am feeling homesick.
