What do you think of their creations?

My Burritos likes to recycle things like empty bottles, paper towels rolls, and just about any empty containers at home. They made these empty bottles into some cute characters that represent their friends and classmates.

A baby shower is a wonderful way to celebrate your baby’s upcoming arrival and to get some much needed items for your nursery. However, putting together a gift registry can be an intimidating process, especially for first time moms. The good news is that with a few handy tips, creating your gift registry is a breeze. Companies such as New Arrivals Inc make it quick and easy – and fun.
Start with the Basics
No matter what, your baby is going to have certain basic needs. We all eat, sleep and wear clothes – your baby included. Keeping this in mind, you’ll need to choose items accordingly:
A place to sleep – You have several options ranging from a bassinette to your own bed. However, two popular options are a crib and a portable bed (such as Graco’s Pack N’ Play). A crib is the traditional choice and if you choose a convertible crib, it’s a choice that can grow and change as your baby does. A portable bed is also a popular option both for travel and everyday use. Many families choose to have both.
Food to eat – No matter if you plan on bottle or breast feeding, there are still plenty of items you will need. A large pillow (such as a Boppy pillow) is a great item and burp cloths are a must. Formula fed babies will need plenty of bottles and the wherewithal to clean and sterilize them. Breast feeding moms will appreciate having a pump and storage containers for milk.
Diapers – Whether you choose disposable diapers or a diaper service, you’ll still need something to put on your baby’s bottom. You’ll also need plenty of wipes along with a container for soiled diapers.
Clothes to wear – Babies go through a lot of clothing – much more than you would think. Between spitting up and diaper explosions, your baby can go through more clothing changes than Lady Gaga during a live performance. You can never have too many onesies.
Have a Little Fun
Once your baby’s basic needs are covered, why not have a little fun? After all, there’s more to putting together a nursery than taking care of bare essentials. Indulge your baby and yourself with a stylish nursery decorated with a fun theme such as nature, a favorite story character or a pleasing color palette. After all, you and your baby deserve the best.

These photos were taken four years ago when we were still living in Korea. My sister-in-law made her some sort of a legging and she paired it with one of her top and other accessories. Here we go, Mommy kept the camera rolling lol.
I'll leave you the last photo with a big smile to say, thank you for being part of our online life! Happy Thanksgiving y'all!
Quality skateboards will always be in style. But the designs, fashions, and accessories that skateboarders enjoy fall in and out of vogue. What's hot today may be out next season.
Not sure what's in style now? Here are some of the hottest skateboarding trends to guide you:
Retro Plastic Skateboards
Glossy, plastic skateboards enjoyed their heyday in the 1970s. Now these discount skateboards are making a comeback and are among the hottest skateboarding trends. This durable, functional board has a cool, retro design that will make you feel nostalgic even if you weren't around to see the 70s yourself.
Hybrid Skate Shoes
The shoes you wear to keep a good grip on your board may not necessarily look good on the dance floor -- until now. Hybrid skate shoes give you the functionality you need when you're doing tricks on your board and the style you want when you're out with your friends. No need to keep a change of shoes, so you can pack light!
Upcycled Skateboard Jewelry
Show off your love of skateboarding by wearing cuffs and chains made out of upcycled skateboard parts. Ball bearing shells and bolts can become rings, strips of board can be molded into bangles, and other pieces can be turned into pendants and other fun accessories. Show off your love of the sport while also indulging in one of the hottest skateboarding trends of the season.
What are some of your favorite skateboarding trends this season? Share your thoughts on these trends in the comments!

I attended the Thanksgiving lunch of the three classes (Pre-K, Kindergarten, and First Grade) at my children's school last November 19, 2012. I wasn't assigned as homeroom mom volunteer but I went anyway because I did not want my son to feel like I am neglecting his functions as he saw how I was very active with his sister before.

My daughter has been watching the tutorials about drawing different kinds of subject on youtube. Here are some of her drawings. She definitely has my husband's artistic side, I don't have any talent in drawing at all. I am glad that there is youtube because even if I don't send my daughter to an art class, she learns from watching video tutorials.
"Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age. "- Paul Klee -

Sharing old photos once again. My PC isn't well yet, the technician said that he could probably finish it by tomorrow so let's see. For now, I am uploading these shots when my kids were still little.

Oh I wish I could have my PC back, all the photos I have was there and it's killing me that updating my blog is hard without my photos.. sigh. This photo was uploaded before my PC crashed.
I wasn't in the school when the annual fire drill was held but glad that one of the Moms who attended took pictures and gave each of the student a copy. This is the second grade class. I am loving the fire men wearing pink shirt hehehe.
Me and my husband was invited to attend a meeting by the principal of our children school in order to discuss a possible special program for gifted children. Our daughter was recommended by her teacher because she see a potential in her. She was impressed when our daughter showed her some of her articles and drawings that she did at home when she is off from school. I am so glad that our daughter is doing so good in school.
It is my son that I am concern about, although he is doing good but doesn't take it as seriously as his sister. That is why I focus my attention in helping my son with his homework at home because I know that he needs it most more than his sister. I am also glad that I am a stay at home mom and I can teach my son at home. Some Moms who need to work has no other option but to hire a tutor for their kids.

Sibling rivalry is very common. My daughter was only nine months old when I got pregnant again. She got used to being our everything so when our son was born, she wasn't very happy. She was only 18 months old and it was very hard for her to accept that she had a competition to our attention.

The trick or treat event here in Weirton was rescheduled last Saturday. Even though it was a bit cold, we accompanied our Burritos to go treat or treating so they could have fun.

The photos below were taken at the pumpkin patch at Janoski's Farm. We bought three pumpkins, two small ones and one medium white one.
Squash is the only thing that I saw at my country so when I see the different varieties of pumpkins here, I was amazed. I like the pink pumpkin the most .
Going to a pumpkin patch with my kids is so much fun! Presenting our outdoor fun to you. Thanks for visiting!
I showed these photos of my kids to a colleague and she said in disbelief "You let your kids play in the leaves? Do you know how much dust is in it?" I told her that my kids enjoy it and that a little dust won't hurt them. What matters to me is the fact that they can enjoy what mother nature has to offer. I personally think that this is better than letting your kids just sit in front of the TV or playing games. This is a good exercise for them both physically and emotionally.
