[Summer Fun] — Chuck E Cheese

Chuck E Cheese for these two munchkins was a bonus treat for them. Well minus one that was mainly napping. My girlfriend suggested a fun day out at Chuck E Cheese for the kids. Aren’t they lucky or what?

Glad they got to have fun and bond. We didn’t get to see Layla much this summer because of her full day pre-school. Till next time!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Exploring Downtown Toronto

What an experience! I don’t think I ever explore Downtown, Toronto even though I live in this city. We drop by here and there but never walked around to view the buildings. It was nice bringing my 2 aunts for some sightseeing. Too bad we didn’t have enough time that day – otherwise we drop by Ripley’s Aquarium too.

We walked around for over four hours and settled at Earls for a sit down dinner.

Glad they both get to enjoy the downtown life. See buildings and kind of soak in the culture a little bit. The weather was beautiful that day too!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Sixth Year Wedding Anniversary

Sixth year wedding anniversary with the love of my life was somewhat relaxing but with a day of kids activities. Before our anniversary lunch – we headed to Munchkin#2s first swimming lesson. He loved the water and was very comfortable in it.

After the swimming lesson – we headed to Good Catch for lunch. I ordered a cocktail to share with the Hubby. Ordered my first Spicy Salmon Poké and my thoughts? Nothing really that special. Not sure what the hype is about with everyone? Hubby loved his lobster sub.

After lunch we headed to Munchkin#2s’ baptism class.

Quite an eventful day for sure but we got to spend the rest of our day at home. Six years – 2 kids & a home. What more can we ask for? I am forever blessed with my family. I am content where life is & all we need is more time to spend with each other. Can money buy time?

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Organization] — Kitchen Snack Cabinet Bins

g0283

Here’s my little haul from Kitchen Stuff Plus. Since these Ashley storage basket was on sale for $7.50 each – I decide to re-organize my son’s snacks. The little aqua blue jar is for my son’s hot lunches for school.

g0284

My son doesn’t snack on much variety of snacks – he has always enjoyed gold fishes, cheerios, and bear paws. Occasionally I’ll give him a bag of chips but only once a blue moon.

g0285

All organized! I wish my cabinet was a little wider – so I can add 2 extra storage baskets. But overall – very satisfied with these baskets – very sturdy and you can stack them up to however many you want. Do you have them? Love them or hate them? Comment below & share! Stay tune for more organizational ideas & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

Have a GREAT day!!!

[Celebration] — Hubby’s 34th Birthday && Christmas Eve

This is how we celebrated Christmas Eve slash Hubby’s 34th Birthday. Our friend Dana and her newly Husband came for a visit during the afternoon. It was so nice catching up with them and seeing how they love their married life.

I had some time to take photos of my 2 boys in Christmas outfit. As you follow my blog long enough – you would know I love taking photos! Hahaha. These photos will be memories for us to look back to. I love it!

Look at my two loves!

We went out to Loblaws to pick up a birthday cake for my husband. Munchkin#1 got to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to his daddy. It’s also Munchkin#2’s first time celebrating his daddy’s birthday. Aren’t they cute or what?

Yes – mommy took a selfie too! Look at those chubby arms? I shall do something about it soon! I love my pink Santa hat!

At night we headed out for dinner at Baton Rouge. The restaurant was packed and good thing I made reservation! Otherwise – it’ll be a super long wait. Had my fave baked potato with steak. Everything was yummy!

 

Baked some cookies for Santa. Apparently – Munchkin#1 was suppose to help me but he walked off and wasn’t interested. I think he just didn’t want to touch the cookie dough. He’s a little OCD just like his mommy. We put out cookies for Santa and carrots for reindeer. Yes water for Santa too because we ran out of milk!

It was so much fun because it’s Munchkin#1’s first year understanding that Santa and reindeer are coming and dropping us gifts! Love it! It’s so magical!

Here’s our Christmas Eve night time outfit. Our matching outfit which I bought a couple months ago. The outfit where we open Christmas gifts in the morning! There goes our fun and eventful Christmas Eve & Hubby’s 34th birthday. We love spending it as a family and at home. No need to attend to other people or places. Just some peaceful moment for us.

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Jayden] — 4 Year & 10 Month Update • First Christmas Concert

This Munchkin is turning 5 in a month! As I always say – time is flying by so quickly. It makes each year’s birthday as special as ever. I’m already planning for his birthday party & he’s so excited about it.

His first Christmas holiday break as well. I remember when I was a kid – I look forward to it. We didn’t get much done because we were all sick. I wanted him to have a more eventful break instead of being home. I guess next year? But it was still amazing because we had fun with our next door neighbor for the last week of his break.

I still count my special days with this Munchkin – it was his fifth Christmas this year. This year is a very special one because we introduce him Santa and the reindeer’s. He believed they did come and left him a present under the tree! It was so special and magical for him. I love watching him ask questions and wait for Santa by the window! How amazing right? I want him to experience everything I didn’t as s child. I think this coming year I’ll be doing elf on the shelf with him.

A few firsts from last month. He had his first Christmas concert on December 19th 2016 on a Tuesday. It was rescheduled because of a snow storm. He was quite funny because he didn’t sing at all. Funny how he’s just like his daddy. I sort of expected that he won’t be singing because of all the people looking at him. Hahaha. Very expected.

Anyways enough of Christmas stuff. He’s a lot more independent lately with taking baths, dressing himself, putting cream on himself, dressing himself before school and etc.. although a lot more independent. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t frustrate me. He’s a little bit rebellious and know exactly how to push my buttons. He can drive me up the walls at times.

I have to admit it isn’t easy juggling my time with two kiddos now but I try my best to snuggle and give him tons of kisses when I can.

He still loves to snuggle and kiss his baby brother. Finds him quite annoying when he cries. Protects baby brother when others try to hold or kiss him. He feels like he owns his baby brother. Which is so cute!

Can’t wait to create more amazing memories with this Munchkin. That’s the updates for December 2016. I wonder what’s in store for this Munchkin in 2017? Stay tune for that!

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!!!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

A bit late for this blog post – just found these photos on my album on Facebook – so had to share. The outfit on the left was for my son’s Halloween outfit. We bought it quite early. Picked up 7 photo albums, kitchen spoon, rain boots, kitchen towels, and a organization basket. All were at amazing prices. When you visit Winners HomeSense daily – you can sure go bankrupt because they have new stuff daily.

Here’s a close up – I visited 3 different Winners HomeSense to find 7 photo albums. These photo albums are for my kids photos. I need to find a couple more but so far out of luck right now.

[Kids] — Fantasy Fair at Woodbine Mall • Kids Fun

g0207

We visited Fantasy Fair located inside Woodbine Mall with our friends on October 22nd, 2016. It was basically 3 families with 2 kids each. A total of 6 kids and 3 sets of parents. We had free tickets to play rides and boy the line ups were long! It was packed with people too! My advice to you is to go on weekdays instead!

g0208 g0209

What I love about this place is that it’s an indoor playground! Perfect for the cold season where you don’t want to go outdoor but there’s still a place for the kids to have fun. Kids will have fun while the adults can go shopping or have a meal. PERFECT! The unlimited rides pass is very inexpensive too – between $16-$18.

 

Overall – it was our first time there and our son loves it and wouldn’t want to leave. We had to drag him out even after 5 hours of fun! My foot was killing me by that point. Definitely recommend this place to you all! Have you been here? Your thoughts? Comment below! Stay tune for more daily adventures & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!

 

Have a FABULOUS day!!!
