[Summer Fun] — Canada’s Wonderland

When was the last time I ever step foot in Canada’s Wonderland? I think over 13 years ago! Crazy much? It was nice to be back! We visited Canada’s Wonderland late July with our two kiddos. Munchkin#1 was overly excited even before we got in. Munchkin#2 behaved so well even after an 8 hour day out. I serious could not complain!

We stayed at the kids’ area and with eight hour we had. It was just not enough time for all the rides plus the park was so busy and so much to do too! Definitely worth getting the season pass!

We had to literally bribe & drag Munchkin#1 out of Wonderland! He loved it and is constantly asking to go back. He sure doesn’t know how fortunate he is to be enjoying all these summer activities. Sometimes I feel like our kids have life so good. For sure Wonderland will be a place to be back. Till next time!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Easter Sunday Dinner With InLaws

This dinner concludes our last event of Easter 2017! What an eventful and fun Easter we had this year! We ended our Easter with a lovely dinner at Monte Carlos hotel with the inlaws. It was a yummy four course dinner.

Munchkin#1 was busy with his dinner while Munchkin#2 kept busy with watching cartoons and somehow let his parents enjoy their dinner. What a bonus right?

The kids got really spoiled with surprise eggs as gifts from their grandparents. When I got home – I had to quickly hide them! Surprisingly till this date – Munchkin#1 does not remember receiving it! I’m just not a fan of my kids having too much sweet. The egg on the right – that size will last Munchkin#1 up to a whole year. Happy Easter to you all!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Celebration] — Kids Easter Party & Egg Hunt 2017

What a fun day we had with the kiddos! There were about 15 kiddos all together – we had lunch, the kids got to play together, and than we ended with an Easter egg hunt. So much fun! The mommies got to sit, eat, and chit chat too.

Of course – this mama gotta capture the moment. The kids had a lot of fun with the egg hunt – I believe it’s most of their first times.

Even Munchkin#2 kept busy on his own. Touching everything and crawling everywhere.

Can’t wait till next Easter. Munchkin#2 will be walking by than and he’ll join in the fun of hunting for eggs next time! Too bad it was rainy – otherwise it be much more fun hunting for eggs outdoors.

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[DIY] — Easter Favors & Easter Baskets 2017

Easter is around the corner – how could I not shop for Easter right? Since my friend is hosting a kids Easter party at their place – I’ve decided to put together some Easter favor boxes for the kiddos. It’ll be a huge play date with some Easter activities.

I went to two places to pick up these items; Walmart & Dollarama.

These Easter favor boxes is almost complete – still need to add the small little egg chocolates in.

I’ve decided to pick up four of these Easter baskets for my kids god-siblings and cousin.

This is how it looks like after it being filled. It was a lot of fun putting everything together. This is also my first year doing Easter festivities. Stay tune – I’ll be sharing with you what I did for my kids Easter basket this year!

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Chinese New Year 2017

Celebrated Chinese New Year with the relatives on January 28th, 2017- a Saturday this year.

We wanted to get Munchkin#2 a new Chinese New Year outfit but nothing is as small as one years old size – so we opted to re-use his big brothers’ old outfit. Still pretty brand new to me! It’s Munchkin#2s’ first Chinese New Year this year & look at my two boys – very festive!

Family photo is of course a must – gotta capture all those memories right? Look at the three cousins. I bought Francesca her Chinese New Year outfit when I visited Hong Kong last March. I am glad it fits her so well – she can probably wear it again next year too. All 3 of them look so cute together.

We had lunch at Ding Tai Fung to celebrate the upcoming year. Wishing everyone amazing health and happiness the year ahead and forever! May all your wishes come true! Stay tune for more updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Love] — Cayden’s 1st Santa Photos

Took our Santa photos on December 4th this year. It was Cayden’s first Christmas – so of course Santa photos were a must! He wore the same onesie that Munchkin#1 wore for his first Santa photos too!

I didn’t want to take our photos that late. Well to me it’s late because it took about over an hour wait. Thank goodness there were a lot to see and explore.

I took advantage of the one hour long wait by snapping lots of photos on my Iphone. How can I not with such beautiful decorations? I went a little overboard but there are never enough photos.

Look at my Munchkin#1s face. He’s never serious anymore when I tell him to smile. He purposely does these faces too…

Here’s our Santa photo this year after over an hour wait. To be honest – the packages they have is so overpriced and not worth the money. But it was Munchkin#2s first Christmas – so it was obligated to take it. Now I have both my boys 1st Santa photos. No more buying these expensive package photos! Have you taken yours yet? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more daily reviews and hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!

Have an AWESOME day!!!

[Home] — Christmas 2016 Decorations

It’s the most wonderful of the year! Christmas is the best holiday to decorate for because everything’s so sparkly and cute! Plus I can leave them up for 2 whole months!

Our new set of Christmas stockings from MerryStockings.Com

It’s the most wonderful of the year! Christmas is the best holiday to decorate for because everything’s so sparkly and cute! Plus I can leave them up for 2 whole months!

Got this new glittery banner at Dollarama

I love decorating! Most importantly my son loves looking at all these festive decorations too. It lights up his face when he sees it. I love watching him learn all the Christmas-ty stuff!

Favor boxes filled with candies, 2 new nutcrackers, and a silver Christmas tree from dollarama

I didn’t get a lot of new stuff this year. Every year I get a few pieces of new decors to add into my collection and that’s it. My theme this year is red, green, and silver. I decided to take a break from my Rilakkuma bears and pink ornaments. Just wanted to change it up.

Here’s how our Christmas tree looks like this year – it has silver cross’s on it too but you can’t really see it on the picture. I have box on each of my doors – that’s about 6 bows total. I had to get 4 extra this year because of course everything’s got to match in my world right? 😉

Yes – I did decorate my switches by putting these glittery shapes on each set of switches. There’s snowman and Christmas trees as well. I love decorating! I think next year I can get my 5 year old to help with the tree decorating. He’ll be old enough but that’s it he wants to help though. Haha.

I take photos of my yearly decoration because I’ll know what I have and what I’ll be using for the year. When do you usually decorate for Christmas? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Haul] — Christmasty Dollarama Haul

Here’s a little Dollarama haul for my Christmasty stuff. I love checking out what Dollarama has every year because they come out with new stuff every year. What I don’t like every year is their prices raise! It’s up to $4.00 now!

Look at all these cool stuff I picked out. I love picking up a few new things each year to add to my collectioin. Soon I’ll need a bigger storage just for my Christmas decors!

Their stuff is just too cute! Can’t wait to use all the food stamps! I can be lazy at making my own food stamps this year! Hehehe. What are your Christmas hauls? Comment below to share!

[Review] — Personalize Stockings at MerryStockings.Com

Ordered these beautiful personalized stockings on MerryStockings.com after checking our many different websites. If you are looking for personalized stockings – it can be pricey!

Since we have a new member in our family this year – I decided to get a new set of stocking. Well let me rephrase that – since I cannot find a matching stocking for my last set – I decided to get a new set instead. I searched over 30+ websites for it but no luck.

I stumbled upon MerryStockings during my Google search. The price looks right and so I decided to just place an order. Until I checked in – I realized they were charging USD. I didn’t want to bother with looking at anymore stockings – so I just paid for it.

Shipping took about 2 weeks long. Thank goodness I ordered them early! But there’s a surprise when it came in the mail – custom fee! I don’t even want to remember how much it was.

The shipment came in a grey bag. After opening it – each stocking was packaged in a clear bag.

The material of the stockings were very nice and soft. Love the name stitching too.

I’ll be using this set of stocking for a very long time. So if you ask if its worth it – I say yes. I love the personal touch of it. What I didn’t like was that the website should place USD next to the price because I seriously had no idea. Would you shop with MerryStocking? What are your thoughts?

Have a PERFECT day!!!

[Kids] — Christmas Gingerbread House 2016

We decided to do our annual gingerbread house at home this year since I couldn’t find a class at Loblaws for it.

We bought a kit at No Frills for $10 bucks. The pre-built ones are more expensive but since we can never keep the house up – I decided it’s best to get the pre-built ones. Just easier for us.

We had fun decorating – Munchkin#1 helped with decorating the roof while we did the rest. Munchkin#2 helped by just watching and not crying lol.

Look at how concentrated he was! I have to say that this year he is more excited and enthusiastic in all these Christmas activities!

I think we’ll just buy the kit every year – so we can spend family quality time at home. Maybe next year Munchkin#2 can help too! What kind of festive activities did you do with your kids?

[Lifestyle] — 25 Christmas Books • Starting December 1st

g0206

I was so thrilled to find 25 Christmas books at such affordable prices! The most expensive one was $3.50 and these are amazing quality books! Hard covers too! I’ve wrapped up all 25 books and starting from December 1st – my older son will be unwrapping one book a day until Christmas. I want this to be a tradition in our household. I’ll probably use these books for a few years – I don’t think he’ll remember it after a whole year right? I’ll be replacing a few books here and there but overall – it’ll mostly be the same ones.

g0200 g0201 g0202 g0203 g0204 g0205

Just for a little self reminder – I took pictures of the 25 books – so in case I shop for a few new ones – I won’t get duplicated. I can’t wait to do elf on the shelf next year as well. What are your family Christmas traditions? Comment below to share with us! Stay tune for more daily adventures & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time. Thanks for dropping by!

[LifeStyle] — Operation Christmas ShoeBoxes 2016 • DIY Projects

g0122\

Christmas is around the corner and the first time I think about is these shoeboxes for the kids in 3rd world country. We live a pretty privilege life with clean water to drink, a roof over our heads, and food on the table every day. The kids in third word countries might not even have 1/3 of what we have! I did this project with a girlfriend, her kids, and my son last year – you can check out the post here. We had so much fun wrapping up the shoe boxes, shopping for toys, and putting it together. The most important thing is the meaning behind it – teaching our kids to give back. This year I’ll be doing this project with my 2 son’s and husband – a family thing.

g0123 g0124

I wrapped these shoeboxes early October and did the shopping later on. The date to donate these shoeboxes is the third week of November this year. I wanted to wrap them early and put them together early is because when November hits – it’s like crazy busy for us! It’s always nice to plan ahead to avoid unnecessary stress right? I always say this but its so true! It’s such a busy season – I want to relax and enjoy the moment! I wrapped up 10 shoeboxes this year – for each shoeboxes – we need to donate $7.00CAD on top for shipping and handling. If your interested – check this website out for more information.

g0177

I had a bag of 100 balls laying around and I didn’t want to open it for my son to play with. So I had this idea of wrapping up these balls as part of the gifts for the shoebox project. It was so much fun wrapping and they look so cute too. Don’t they look like candies?

g0179 g0180

g0210 g0211

These are a few of the stuff I included in the shoe boxes – mostly toys and some are sanitation products. We could not include any liquid items or toothpaste – so I had to be thoughtful to what to get.

g0212

It’s a family affair and I love getting my kids involved. Well for this year – one kid involved. We try to explain to him why we do this and how some kids don’t have toys or anything to play with in other countries. I don’t think he quite understood that but we’ll try again next year.

g0213

Our little helper that helped put everything inside each box – he listened to instruction quite well. Except when he saw cars… He wanted to be playing with it instead of helping. Haha. But he did do a great job this year! Last year he did help a little bit but I did most the packing.

g0214

Here’s a shoebox for a girl. Which includes some toys, jewelries, crayons, coloring book, tissue, and band-aid. Have you given back this year? If not – start searching on how you can give back! It’s the season in giving back – although I believe giving back can be any season! Stay tune for more daily reviews & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[LifeStyle] — Family Time at Whittamore Farm 2015

c225

It’s the Fall season already?? Summer was way too short and I’m missing the longer daylight already! Fall is here and that means – we are ready for some Fall family activities and Halloween activities.

c226

We visited Whittamore Farm again. Last year we visited was near Halloween and it was on a weekend – meaning it was SUPER busy!! This year we visited the farm on a weekday – so there were barely any people. I kind of like that there weren’t as much people. The entrance fees on weekdays are cheaper at $8.00+HST per person.

c227

It was another mild cold day the day we went. I totally forgot to bring mitts! We stayed about two good hours for Munchkin to run around like a crazy monkey. He loves it!

c228

Last was the wagon ride! We all loved the wagon ride minus the freezing weather! It’s our families second time on the wagon together. Click here to read our first Whittamore Farm experience!

c229

Looking forward for next Fall to return again! Stay tune for more daily life events & updates – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Canada Day 2015

canadaday3

What a relaxing Canada day! I didn’t even bother taking photos or perhaps I forgot about it lol. Had a couple of friends over and we just chilled. Catch up, movies, and pizza. I opted for fireworks this year – we didn’t want to take Munchkin out too late. Overall – one word “relaxing”. How did you spend your Canada day this year?! Comment below to share! 

Have a GREAT day!!!
