Product of Creativity

Remember the Bliss Meltaway chocolate that was sent to me by a kind blogger, Jann?  She included it in the box when she shipped the prize I won from her giveaway.  Anyhow,  a couple of days ago, me and Ms. Burrito were doing her homework at our kitchen and I ate one of it.  I thought of making the wrapper into  a flower and it looked nice.  Ms. Burrito even asked me to put it in her ear lol.  
Here's the product of our creativity.

Gemstones and Minerals

One of the most favorite things that Ms. Burrito did at the farm last pumpkin season was  finding rocks and minerals.  There was a stall at Janoski's Farm  where you can   sift through the sand and water and find these gemstones and minerals.  The fee is $5  for each small bag of sand.  It was a big hit for the kids.
The rocks they found at  the sand is not really worth  the amount you paid but the JOY that  the child feels when they are doing the  "Finding Treasure"  was well worth it.
Ms. Burrito's friend  screamed "I am  a millionaire" when she found the  false or fool's  gold lol.  I was glad that I let her do it because  now she has a little knowledge about certain rocks.  She even   brought her collection  in school for show and tell and the teacher complimented her for that.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Gifts Delivered

Cheesecake Trio & Full Half Dozen Gourmet Dipped Fancy Berries
We will be getting the   chocolates that we ordered  from a company that sponsors the  latest  fund raising at my daughter's school.   Am sure the kids will have a blast delivering   the items again at our neighbors.  I like this idea that grandma gifts delivered is offering online.  Their selection of sweet treats and other    gift items are  very nice so if you are looking for some to be given away as gifts, check out the site.

YoYo

We bought our son a big Yoyo from the  store a few weeks ago.  He is very proud that he can  toss it back and forth now.  Before , he was just rolling it on the floor and we showed him how to use it and he was  very happy that he knows how to do it now.  He broke the string of it already so I am looking for a replacement at the   yoyofactory online and  surprised to see different kinds.  My son would love these selection for sure.

Family Picture

They say that  Ms. Burrito looks like me but when you look at my husband's baby picture, the little Miss looks  just like her Dad.  A lot of people also say that  Mr. Burrito looks like his Dad but  he actually looks like my youngest brother  but with fair skin and hazel eyes.  What do you think?

Building  puzzles is so much fun.  Daughter and I love  crossword and Jigzaw puzzles.

Shopping for St. Patrick Celebration

We went to Fort Steuben Mall last weekend to find Ms. Burrito an outfit for St. Patrick's Day. She will be reading during the mass which she is very proud of because she got the long part of the reading. Her teacher talked to my husband yesterday and told him that she is very proud of our daughter for having the confidence and for doing great in school.  It warms our hearts to know that  our daughter is doing  good in school.
Before we went shopping, we let them play for a while.
Aside from the  clothes we bought for Ms. Burrito, I also found this pretty pink  house slippers.

Precious Moments with Dad on Hubby's Birthday

After we devour on the food that my kids and I prepared for hubby's birthday, we went and visited my FIL. We went for a walk at Marland Heights so our fur baby, Champ, will have some exercise outside.
Ms. Burrito is fascinated with this big ice cream cone display hehehe.
Champ had a ball  playing with Dad and Ms. Burrito.
Dad likes Champ, as you can see  the latter is sitting comfortably in his lap.
"How pleasant it is for a father to sit at his child's board. 
It is like an aged man reclining under the shadow 
of an oak which he has planted."
Dad is turning 90 years old in few moments and I am glad that  we have precious moments with him while he is still able to  enjoy our company.

Great Weather for Biking

We are so grateful that we have a  week-long of good weather this week.  The kids have been riding their bikes everyday after school. My husband and I are planning to buy us  bikes too so we could all  ride a bike.  If we would   all have bikes, we  want to go to panhandle trail and ride our bikes there.  To carry bikes  in the  vehicle is not hard if you have  kuat bike racks  that you can attach at the back of the  vehicle.  I hope that hubby and I will be able to afford each a bike so we can all ride this summer.

Enjoying the Flight

Here's  my daughter just relaxing inside the plane enjoying our  smooth transit  from Korea to Japan.   We as parents worries when we travel especially if it's a long flight.  I am glad that I am blessed with two good travelers.  They  never cried nor complain during our 18 hours flight from South Korea to United States.

Travel Plans

Hubby and I  were talking  about our summer plans  this year.  He  wants to  go for a wee vacation  somewhere here in US but I suggested that we should just explore what we have here in West Virginia to keep the budget low.  We have   bills to pay off this year and   going for a big vacation won't help.  I told him that  when we can save enough money, maybe we could go outside the country.  We never know if you can find deals like cheap holidays to egypt or somewhere in Asian countries.  I love traveling but we have to consider our finances as well.
