[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!!!

[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!!!

[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?

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[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!!!

[Life Story][Festive] — Prepping For Chinese New Year 2015

364

Keeping all my decoration for Chinese New Year simple this year. If you noticed the pictures – we’ve moved! More updates on that on another post – stay tune for that!

365

I bought these “fai chun” at One’s Better Living and love how these Rilakkuma bear matches with my bears. We even bought an extra outfit for Munchkin. We still have his first outfit that he still fits in it. But since we are visiting his Godfather’s family too – he’ll be going “bai lean” twice – he can make use of two outfits. Are you ready for Chinese New Year too? Share by commenting below! Have an AMAZING Chinese New Year!

Have an AWESOME day!!!

[Life Story][Celebration] — Christmas With Families & Relatives

It was a CRAZY busy Christmas day for the Cheung household but I wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s truly a blessing getting to spend time with both sides of the family. I’m grateful and blessed for that.

222 223

We started the day waking up around 10:30AM and picked up food from City Hollywood Café to bring over to my Stepmoms’ place for Christmas luncheon. Spent two hours there and Munchkin was wearing his Santa costume all day long. Took some photos and that was it.

224 225 226

Headed home around 2:00PM to start preparing for Christmas dinner with the relatives and in-laws. I made Alfredo Tuna and Spinach Pasta & Mashed potatoes. Took about two hours to prepare.

233232

In between – Munchkins’ Godfather came for a visit. Love how he squeezes in time out of his busy schedule for us.

228 227

231229

An amazing dinner plus time spent with relatives and in-laws. I love having people over for such festive occasions.

235

230234

Munchkin celebrated his third Christmas with families this year. He even opened his own presents with the help of daddy. I can’t believe how fast time is flying by and soon he’ll be three years old! I thank God and my mother from above every day for this life. This is yet another amazing Christmas we had. May this year be the same as 2014 or even better. Wished you all had an amazing Christmas! This will end my Christmas posts. Stay tune for my daily blog posts – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Life Story][Celebration] — Christmas Play Date & Christmas Crafts

164 165

We celebrated Christmas with the kids early this year on December 14th 2014 – due to everyone’s’ busy schedule. It’s actually my very first time hosting a craft party too. I thought it would be nice to have a little festive craft fun with the kids.

166 167

The most important thing is for the kids to bond and parents to catch up. I’m glad everyone had fun.

168 169

It was our Munchkins’ first time crafting too and he helped with one of the tree ornaments. His patience with crafting was only less than five minutes. On the other hand Zachariah had a lot of fun and loved it. I think I’ll be hosting something like this every year for the kids – it’s a fun indoor activity and they get to explore their own creativities. Do you love crafting too? Comment below to share!

[Life Story][Christmas] — Christmas Present Wrapped & Ready

617 618

All wrapped and ready to go! That’s right – I know I am early but I am early every single year. Reasons? The biggest reason is to avoid stress and crowded mall. I don’t think anyone in this world enjoy crowded malls and long line ups! Especially me – I get light headed or a huge headache! Now that the present shopping is all done – I can focus on planning Christmas parties!

619 620

I feel amazing when things are done way in advance – it gives me extra time to plan other things too and spend family time with my two loves! Are you like me too? Love to plan way in advance?

[Life Story][Hobby] — Christmas Home Decoration 2014

621

It’s that time of the year again! My favorite season MINUS the snow! The best part of this season is that I could decorate the house up and down! Just #LOVELOVELOVE!

622 623

624 625 626

So far – the house is done decorating and I love it! The most exciting part of decorating is putting up my beloved white Christmas tree with the Rilakkuma, pink and purple theme! How perfect right?

636 637

638 639

Im not trying to spend a lot of money on Christmas decorations this year – I’ll probably do the after Christmas sales. One thing I really want is the huge nutcrackers! I’ve wanted those got a couple years now but it was just out of my budget. It’s about $30 to $50 each and I want two of them. We’ll see if I can find any this year and on budget.

[Life Story][Celebration] — Halloween Celebration 2014 With Kids & Parents

455 456

Such a fun night with kids and parents! We should definitely do this as a tradition from now on. I enjoy watching the kids interact and play with each other. It’s always precious in my eyes to see every one of them grow.

457458

We parents had a great time also. Dinner started around 7:00PM – to make it extra festive – I added some spiders and eyeballs on top of the food. Cute idea right? Wasn’t going to make a lot of food that night but since I had extra time – why not right? It was a potluck dinner – so everyone brought over something yummy. I made garlic bread, devil eggs, mini quiche, and bacon wraps.

   459460

Overall – super fun. It was Munchkins’ first time experiencing handing out candies to the trick or treat-ers too!! I caught that on video – so you can check it out there! We wanted to go trick or treating but due to weather again… It’s been cold and rainy the past three years we’ve wanted to go – so we couldn’t. Praying that next year will be better. I’m just not up for the kids being sick after a couple hours of trick or treating. It’s just not worth it right? Anyways – here’s our Halloween celebration of 2014 with the kids. How did you all celebrate Halloween this year? Comment below to share! Meanwhile – stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Life Story][Festive] — Halloween Cooking Class For Toddler at Loblaws

400

We had such a fun time as a family at our first festive cooking class at Loblaws over the weekend! I think Hubby and I were enjoying a lot more than Munchkin did because he was sort of shy with people he doesn’t know around him. But he did help us put sprinkles on the pumpkin cookie.

401

I can’t recall if this was my first time carving a pumpkin or not. But let’s call it my first time. I loved how the chef carved the top opened and cleaned out all the seeds! That’s like the dirtiest job of pumpkin carving! Well it’s messy!

402

Hubby and I took turns carving the pumpkin – his idea of the mouth and my idea of the eyes! I’m not too happy with how the eyes came out though but oh well – I’ll do a better job next year!

403

At the end of our fun festive class – Chef Chris hands out Halloween treats to all the parents and kids. For sure we’ll make it a tradition to come back every year. It’s festive and fun for both parents and kids. I even signed up for the Gingerbread house class already!! I highly recommend you all to join these fun classes with your kids! The price-wise is reasonable too! This Halloween class was $12.00+HST and the Gingerbread House class is $18.00+HST. Pretty reasonable. But the most important part is for the kids to feel the festivity and have fun! Have you been to any of these classes before?? If so – what’s your thoughts? Comment below to share! I’ll be posting our Gingerbread House experience here too but that will have to wait till December – so stay tune for that!

Have a HAPPY & WONDERFUL day!!!

[Life Story][Hobby] — Halloween House Decoration 2014

331

Here’s my Halloween home decoration post! Every year I would take pictures of what I decorated around the house to remind myself what I have. There are too many boxes of Halloween decorations to go over and sometimes I do forget what I have.

332

333

I enjoy shopping for decorations every year after Halloween because everything is automatically 50% to 75% off!! When you know there are sales like this – it’s very hard to buy things at regular prices.

334

335

One of the finest hobbies I have is decorating and making the house festive! This year we kept the theme kids friendly and nothing scary. Munchkin learned quite a bit this Halloween too. From owls, spiders, ghost, pumpkins, and etc.

336

337

Christmas is coming up – that is one of my favorite holidays!! Because I go crazy with decorating! Stay tune for that. How do you decorate your home? Comment below to share. Meanwhile – stay tune for my every day posts – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time!
