Yeah, I know it could be too early for Christmas decorating. Thanksgiving hasn't been celebrated yet! lol! :) We're leaving for Arizona on Thanksgiving day itself and spend a week with relatives and friends. By the time we're back, we might be too exhausted, or not have much time to decorate the house for the holidays. I'd rather do it now when I got some spare time. Besides... I love Christmas! I love the joyful feeling that it brings. I love seeing Christmas lights, and listening to the holiday songs. I love everything about it! :) My boys, especially my 2 yr old Noah is always in awe whenever he sees our Christmas tree. He wants to have the colorful lights on all the time, and can't resist touching the ball ornaments. As expected, him and lil Kaiden kept on pulling them that one already got broken. Oh well... Anyway, I surely can't deny the fact that the big Christmas tree brings sparkles and joy in my lil boys' eyes.

Christmas Decor

Oh, I like this unique decor for the holiday. I saw this online through Just Address Plaques, and I thought they have a lot of cool and pretty stuff to offer. They mainly cater to address plaques, home address plaques, address signs, etc. The photo shown at the left is an example of their seasonal plaques. It is called Snowflake Oval Plaque-Red with Silver. It would be lovely to put it in your yard with snow flakes falling. It is rust free and fade proof. You don't have to worry about the colors fading out through the years of usage. Aside from that, you can also choose the colors, whichever suit your taste.

Just Address Plaques are well known for their excellent product quality and customer service. You are assured that you're getting the lowest price for the highest standard of workmanship. If, for example, somewhere you see an address sign priced lower that what they're offering, simply call them and they can match it up for you.

The Locker

A classmate of mine in high school posted some pictures of our alma mater few days ago in Facebook. Boy, that brought back a lot of fun memories for me! It made me miss my high school friends, teachers, even the place itself. She visited our school recently and basically snapped photos of the classrooms, cafeteria, including the lockers. Those included the metal gym lockers which we seldom used, and also the wood lockers placed inside the classrooms.

I remember a friend of mine who kept her pair of sneakers inside the locker. Those sneakers were popular those days and kinda expensive. One day, when she was about to use it for our PE class, for some reason, she couldn't find it anymore. Later, we saw it being worn by one of our classmates, our class President. My friend herself, including the whole class were very sure it was hers. She complained about it and brought it to the attention of our principal. But, the principal took the side of our class President. Why? She just didn't believe her. She thought she was just making it all up. My poor friend. That time our President was vying for the Valedictorian spot, which she actually got.

Flying For a Vacation

The positive side of not making to the playoffs is having to spend more time, more weekends with the family. My hubby's team unfortunately didn't make it to the playoffs. The teams competing for the championship are on their last few games. We just get to watch them on TV. A week from now, my hubby will fly to Seattle to receive his award for MLS Trainer of the Year. The boys and I would want to be with him on that special day. But then, it wouldn't be a wise idea to fly there with the kids, come back and fly again the week after for our Thanksgiving vacation in Arizona. It would be taxing for all of us especially the kids. Besides, I can't take any more time off from work. As a wife, I would want to be there to show him my love and support.

Anyway, speaking of vacation, Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Resorts offer a fantastic vacation experience that you wouldn't want to pass up. There are actually 6 Myrtle Beach Resorts to choose from. All of them a fabulous! Grande Shores, Seaside, Prince Resort, Towers on the Grove, Horizon, Avista Resorts have holiday packages that would truly be memorable for the family. Beach Resorts Myrtle Beach provide spectacular views and feel of the ocean that are relaxing and pleasing to the senses. Truly enjoyable!

A Relaxing Bath

My boys love taking a bath. I guess most kids do! After eating lunch, which leaves them messy oftentimes, I clean them off by giving them a bath. They get excited every time I'd say "bath", and they get more excited when I pour some bubble bath in the water. Oh, it works like magic especially if one or both them are having tantrums. Their mood suddenly changes. Since they use bubble bath or baby wash often, the tub floor could get slippery. And I have to be sure that they don't stand up, or try to reach something that could cause them to slip or fall. There have been a number of toddler injuries and deaths related to bath tubs that have been reported over the years. It's pretty scary for every parent to think of.

In line with bath tubs, I came across a site online that talks about walk in tubs. These kind of tubs are said to be safer and more relaxing to any user. It is even therapeutic. It offers health benefits such as elimination of insomnia, reduction of arthritis, hemorrhoids, etc. The photo below is a sample of a walk in bath tub called the Paradise. Getting in and out of the tub is a lot easier and safer than regular ones. If you want a relaxing bath, simply turn on the 16 jet warm air massage that goes along with the installation. Mmm...I would definitely love that experience.

Well-Deserved Award!

Congratulations hunny for being the Athletic Trainer of the Year! Me and the boys are proud of you! We love you! :)

Saving With Luvs and Aldi

We've been doing our best to save as much as we can especially in these trying times. I guess, (and I hope) few more months, Kaiden would be graduating from diapers. Diapers are pretty expensive and takes much of our budget. My kind of brand is Luvs which is of good quality and doesn't cost as much as the other leading diapers. For other grocery stuff, as what I mentioned in my previous post, I shop at Aldi. Oh, I'm glad I found that store! For special occasions, or if there's a thing I couldn't pass up, I look for online coupons first to see if there's one for that particular item I like.
