Seam's Revirsible Dress #ProductReview

It's awesome when you can find a very high quality garment for your children. I got my daughter this Grace dress from SEAM Collection.  Seam Collection has a great  selection of   very cute and well-made  dresses and outfits for  girls.  I love that the designer really understand what is easy and comfortable  clothing  for girls.  
I always admire when I receive  a product that is well-packaged as well.  It shows that they really care for their customers.  This  Grace Dress is a completely reversible dress.  It has three inch grosgrain ribbon that can can be tied as a bow in the back or a knot to the front. 
My daughter is  very petite for her age compared to other kids.  You can tell that this garment is made in the US from the stitches to the  material that they used which  is 100% cotton.  Sometimes, I get disappointed when I order something  online and when it arrives, the quality is not  satisfactory.  With SEAM Collection, you can be assured that  everything is well three inch grosgrain ribbon can be tied as a bow in the back or a knot to the front.-made.  You will get the value for your money.
The dress is still a little big for her body which is fine because this would be perfect to wear  on Spring next year.  I love the design of the dress and the design of the fabric.
I love getting my  daughter   new outfit because it's fun taking pictures of her.  She is always game for  every photo shoot.
You can buy this Grace Dress by visiting the link.  I highly recommend this  if you want something that is stylish and comfortable for your little lady.
There are so many selection that you can choose from  in their website.  They even have  outfits for  grown women.  
Here's how it looks at the back.  You  either tie a bow at the back or  do a ribbon in the front.
Her photo shoot buddies are always game as well.  Si I took a couple of shots of her with them.
I would love to  thank Cindy, the  designer and owner of SEAM for a very smooth transaction we have had in selecting  the product I   love for my daughter.  I  told her that I need a size 10 but she was very  honest and told me that it runs a little big so she suggested  the next size would be perfect.  I wish, all business owners are like her, she is very accommodating and down to earth.  
Disclosure: The owner of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review.  I was provided with the product/s mentioned  to help me  facilitate this review but  opinions are my own.

Growing Up so Fast

I can't believe that my first born is becoming a little lady already.  She is now 10 years old and think that she knows everything lol.   
 Rye Bean is not  interested in doing any kind of sports although she plays with us most of the time. She is scared to try out for any sports because of her size.       She is so petite compared to girls  of her age.
 She wanted me to take some pictures of her by her tree.   We planted this tree when she was 2 years old.  This is tree.
 The tree has grown and so is she.
 I am glad we were able to salvage this tree from those killer net worms.
 Both of our kids are physically strong.         We make sure that we involve them to  our  fitness routines.
 Here she is doing pull ups.
 And here she is showing her gun lol.     I AM proud of you kiddo!
Happy Natuional Daughter's Day Anak, we love you verymuch!

High School Football Game

There was a home game for the Madonna football team on August 28. We decided to  watch after the kids' piano lessons.  Madonna played against Bishop Donahue's team.
 Bishop Donahue brought their  cheerleaders. They occcupied the other  side of the  Jimmy Carrey Stadium.
 The Madonna "BlueDons" cheerleaders were outnumbered by the other team.
 The Mayor of Weirton came to support the game. He was an alumnus of Madonnna High.
 The Madonna team was doing great  at first but they got rattled when the other team scored.    From then on, they got lousy.    
We did not finish watching the game because it was already late. We never found out if they have recovered or not. I hope that I could watc my son play footballl when he is in high school.

Paper, Paste, and Paint: Arts and Crafts for Young Children

With schools cutting their arts budgets right and left across the country, families are searching for ways to help their kids channel their creative talents and practice their arts skills by doing crafts and projects at home. Using your printer and basic craft supplies, your children can create some imaginative artworks that are sure to inspire in them a love for the creative process.
Cherry Blossoms

Japan is famous for its cherry blossoms. You can infuse a bit of geography into this lovely project. You'll need to print a black and white photo of a Japanese setting you find attractive. If you're running low on printer cartridges, you can order them at for an affordable price. Then, take a neat little twig and glue it on your photo. After, glue small scrunched-up wads of bright pink tissue paper to form cherry blossoms. This pretty mixed media work can even be framed for the wall.
Merry-Go-Round Centrepiece

For this project, you'll need a circular block of Styrofoam or florist's foam to create the base of your merry-go-round along with a handful of popsicle sticks. On your computer, locate colouring pages of carousel animals. Print them and have your child colour and cut them out. Glue each one to a popsicle stick and then push each stick to the foam. You can embellish your merry-go-round with a central pole (a cardboard tube works well) and any other supplies you have on hand like ribbon or glitter.
Button Tree

Find a colouring page of a beautiful tree in and print it out. Have your kids colour the base of the tree and any other areas of the picture. Then, glue some inexpensive plastic buttons in multiple colours and glue them throughout the tree foliage. Your kids will have fun gluing and choosing buttons for their special tree.
Custom Stationary

Ask your kids to make your holiday cards this year. They can print out vintage Christmas scenes for instance on cardstock. Have them print in black and white and then they can colour elements of each scene with coloured pencils for a cool retro look. They can even personalize the insides of the card with a message or special holiday greetings.
Decoupage Blocks

If you have old wooden blocks that no one builds with anymore, you can turn them into decorations for your home. Have the kids print out cute seasonal scenes sized to the sides of your block. Then, they should cut out each scene and paste it to each side of the blocks. Using Modge Podge or another clear sealer, coat each image two to three times. Make sure that each side is dry before turning the block and don't apply a second coat until the first is completely dry. You can even do this by using photos instead of seasonal scenes.
Be sure to tap your printer to add to your creative fun. You'll find lots of other fun printer projects when you search online. Your kids are sure to enjoy craft time and these projects will certainly enhance your quality time together.

Music 101 with my Daughter

The other day, my daughter was  telling me some stuff about music that she learned over the years of taking piano lessons.  She  showed me different  notes that are used for piano, guitar, and other  music instruments.  I thought that was pretty nice although I can hardly remember them all now, lol.  If you ask me about audio sample rate, I wouldn't know  a thing but  my kids would probably know  it.  I appreciate the  music 101 that she taught me.
