First stop is the giant Christmas tree at Pusan Airport. Can you still see my burritos amazed by the big tree?
A big duck carrying four kids. Imagine if there's a real duck this big hehehe.
Looking at the different scenario, she think she's big enough to do everything and when Mommy sys no, she puckers up and do this..
Lastly, it's nice to have a big and strong husband because he can carry you when you want to play like a big baby lol..

I asked my husband to buy me some marbles at Dollar Tree for my Christmas project at home and he found this pack of Christmas decor.
We borrowed three more paint brushes from my SIL so we could all paint. Thanks Chris!
We hanged them at our new Christmas tree today.Parenting Tip of the Day from parents.com.
How do you teach qualities such as responsibility and compassion? Try little games to illustrate honesty and healthy communication as each player finishes the sentence “I was scared (or happy or sad or surprised) when …” Good-Behavior Games for Preschoolers
Thanks for visiting dear friends and for leaving your thoughts.

Hello memory lane travelers, are you ready for the next Nostalgia yet? Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US, I am posting the Thanksgiving we had in Korea a couple of years ago.
It was memorable to us since it was our first time hosting one and we were in the Land of the Morning Calm. We only invited our Korean friends since most of the people inside the base had their own parties too.
Below is a turkey my daughter made. Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone. Be thankful of what you have even if it's just small. Thank you once again for joining and for being a good online friends with us.
We bought five boxes of Christmas lights last weekend to put all around our gutter in front of the house. We had a good weather yesterday so hubby tried to put it up, he wasn't able to finish it though. He said that he would finish it after Thanksgiving, hopefully we will still have a warm day.
This is how the male burrito hides whenever he wants to play hide and seek. He gets mad when you say that you found him. He wants you to pretend too lol.. The knee in front is not his, that's Rylie who was pretending to be searching for him.

Our daughter brought the shirt that they are going to wear on their Christmas Presentation this coming December 15th. Her part is to sing alone in some part of the musical presentation. I asked her to try it on before I washed it and she willingly did. I then asked her to smile for me and this is what she did.
I showed her the photo I just captured and she started laughing so hard. I want to record her laughter on video but then my camera was already set to photos so I just click click click.
Children's laughter can melt your worries away.
Being a parent is the most wonderful experience that God gave us. We are lucky to have His most wonderful gift!
When hubby came home from taking Rylie to school today, he told me that Rylie's teacher praised her for doing so well in her part to the presentation. She told my husband that Rylie exceeded their expectations. Compliments can make our hearts swell so big, I am gad God made me a parent!

Champ and I were playing outside my FIL's house when EJ decided to join us. He kicked the ball for Champ then when he got tired, he laid in the yard full of maple leaves.
"Mommy I can see the moon and the stars!",
"Make a wish Anak"
"I wish that Santa will bring me a lot of toys this Christmas"
"Nice wish anak, can you wish something for me Mommy?"
"What is it Mom?"
"Tell Santa to bring Mommy more online task."
"Okay Mom, I'm done!"
"But you didn't say it"
"I did Mom, just in my mind. I think Santa will hear it."
Oh how wonderful it is to have children!

Before we visited my FIL during the Veteran's day, we decided to make a trip to the small museum in downtown Weirton. The place was so small but we learned a lot of things about the town through the pictures and demonstration by the man who work there. Too bad, taking pictures is strictly prohibited so I wasn't able to get any documentation hehehe.
Here is how the town looks like back in 1905. (Picture was taken from their website at weirtomuseum.com)
We also learned that there was an existing airport here in town back in 1950. My husband don't even know that it existed. This is airport is now a shopping plaza where big stores like KMart and other establishments are located.
Another interesting note is the former name of this town, it was formerly Holliday's Cove but then a rich guy who started/founded the steel mill changed it into Weirton. A woman named Elin Nummi who lived here in town was a TITANIC survivor. It is so nice to go to the museum as you learn a lot of things that you don't know. There are so many old stuff there that are preserved for future generations that is why taking photos are not allowed. The place was so small though, I hope that someday, they would find a big place for the museum because they have so many pictures to display but there is no place to put them.
Anyhow, we proceeded to Dad and we caught him raking leaves in the backyard so we took some pictures.
A shot of these two ornery burritos who were in the mood to pose for us.
Thanks everyone for dropping by. If you are interested on how our town looks like, you might want to visit the url that I provided above. Thanks to your comments.
