Kids, You've Been Good This Year! Personalized Books from iSeeMe #ProductReview

Our kids have been so good in school.  We are very happy that they are  thriving so well and have good grades.  I can say that being a stay-at-home-mom really help them a lot because  hubby and I guide them through.  My kids are like night and day.  My daughter love to  sit and study but my son is  the opposite.  I used to  be strict on him but I realized that  all I am doing is  damage his confidence so I let him do whatever he needs to do and  not worry about it.  The result is amazing even though he doesn't study as much as his sister does.  It's not as  perfect as his sister but still a straight A student so I am so proud of both of  our kids.   
To reward their  best efforts in school, I am putting up a good Christmas basket for them fir all the hard work they do in school.  One of those  nice things I am including are personalized books from I See Me.
For our daughter, I got her the  "Night Before Christmas"  and for our son, it's the "A Christmas Bear for Me".  MY kids love anything personalized.  They always say that they will keep and take good care of it so they can pass  it down to their own kids someday.  That always makes me happy that they think that way.
My son has always something in his  hand when he goes to bed.  Things that he likes like car or his favorite Lego that he build or stuff like that.   I think that this book,  A Chrsitmas Bear for Me, will be perfect for him because it came with a little soft bear that he can hold on to when he goes to sleep. 
I really love iSeeMe's books because of the personalization.  You can customized it with names and dedications.
The illustration on these books are awesome.  Nothing can make  a child very happy to see their names on the book, people that they know and care about.
This would really make my son very happy.  To be able to see his name in every page of the book is magical.  
He would flip to see this  note from Santa Claus.  He will think that is so cool.
I know that my  daughter is a little older for this kind of book but she always   appreciates  this things.  She loves customized gifts just like her brother.  They are both like me as I love personalized gifts as well.  My Night Before Chrsitmas book would make her day.  It has the names of her friends ans I included her photo with her  guinea pig, Dunkin on the first page.
I really love that you can customize these books.  You can  put your place,  your pets, friends., and family
I wish I have  these kind of books when I was a kid.   would have been thrilled!
If you want to consider giving these  great books for your children this Christmas, now is the time to get them.  You can enjoy a 20% discount  through using coupon code IMAGINATION at the checkout.  

The school is celebrating Spirit Week this week so they get to   enjoy  days without wearing uniform depending on the them  for the day.  Today is Disney It Up day so they wore their Mickey and Minnie Mouse shirts.  My son actually has no Mickey mouse shirt so what I did is print out  a MM image and  put it in his shirt  with the little help from labeling supplies.

My Husband's Childhood Home

This is the last picture I took of Dad with my husband and  kids at his house.  He no longer lives at his house because   he was getting to the point where we can no longer trust him living alone.  It makes me sad to see  Dad  go downhill that way.  He  is such a great father-in-law and I miss that about him.  I am not sure what condition he has but he can't remember who we are anymore.  He think and act like a child most of the times.
 My husband suggested to his  sublings that they should put him in a home but  my SIL did not like the idea.  So now that Dad can no longer live alone, she is taking care of him now at her house.  I commend my sister-in-law for doing because I would have done the same thing if he is my Dad.  In fact, I  wanted to do it  but  they did not let me.  .
We feel so sad on Fridays when we take our kids to piano lessons in Marland Heights.  We used to visit him at his house on that day but now, we no longer  go to his house because  it makes my husband really sad to see his childhood  home where he grew up, filled with emptiness.  I am not sure what they are going to do with the house but I think my niece in law will be living there now that Dad is living with my SIL.

Rockboard Scooter is a Great Exercise and so Much Fun! #ProductReview

For the past couple of weeks, our weather  wasn't very pleasing.  I wanted to share w about this Rockboard RBX SCOOTER  that I got for review but I couldn't do it earlier due to  weather.    There came a point where I said, I was just gonna save this  as  a Christmas gift  and not show it to kids for now.  Luckily, we had a great weather  this weekend and  we were able to  use it finally.but it's not happening. 
This rockboard scooter is very easy to assemble.  I even did it with a very little help from DH.  He keep telling me to read the manual but  I am the kid of person to  just look at the stuff and put it together especially if it's a simple thing.  Most of the times I messed up but   sometimes I get lucky lol.  But anyway, this is packaged so well and the instruction is  very easy to follow (I finally looked at it when I put the  top part backwards, lol).  
DH was very busy with his  homework but I told him that  we should let the kids  ride  the scooter while the weather is nice and so we did just that and the kids were truly  surprosed and pleased with it.
They picked it up right away, I thought they will have a hard time with it but I was wrong.  It hel;ped that my husband is there because I get to document them riding it.
I love that the propulsion is achieved with each rock, wasting zero energy and allowing the scooter to reach speeds up to 10mph. This is really a great exercise for  the body.  You get to work on your balance, flexibility, and core  strength.  The kids said that  this is better than the green machine that they have because they are  standing and it's fun to rock it back and forth.
This is appropriate for ages 8 and up.  My husband  was very excited to show the kids how this works because he said that he had fun  riding  one when he was a kid.  He rode it forst and show the kids  how it works, took a picture of him but he didn't want me to  post it, lol.  This scooter can be ridden by adult not exceeding 220 lbs so my husband's weight   which is 181 lbs is still great for this.
I hope I can save  for one more so I could get my daughter one too so they don't have to switch using one.  Right now it is on sale for $159.99 from its original price of $179.99.  Hopefully this will still on sale right around Christmas so I can buy another one.
The Burritos really had a great time.  We took them at the college  campus near our  area  because there were no cars there and there's lot of room for them to  explore  with the scooter.
My son did not want to stop riding.  He really loves this and so thankful that we got  them one.  Thanks to Rockboard for giving me a chance to work with them in featuring this  rockboard scooter in my kids' blog,  Rockboard totally rocks!
The patented Rockboard RBX Scooter is built to handle large adults who are kids at heart!  See who is riding below? Lol, the kids  challenged me to get on it and rock it so I did.  I tell you, this really  makes your legs work great.  Rockboard Scooter  rocks!  We truly  love our  new mini  machine!
Thanks to DH for  taking a break from writing his papers and helping us out and being part of the fun.  We  let them rode it again yesterday after we  pressure washed our fence.

You can watch how fun it is to ride a rockboard through the  short videos I managed to record
