Kids love opening gifts and my son is one of them. The moment he saw gifts underneath the Christmas tree, he would ask me whether he could open it even before Christmas.

He also loves to help decorate the is one his ornaments.

Every year we go to the Santa's Village where he had fun visiting the North pole, eat Mrs. Claus cookies, have photo with Santa and more.

Flavor of Christmas, Pinoy-Style

Puto Bumbong and Bibingka are two native holiday treats that are bound to the pre-drawn Misa de Aguinaldo, which starts December 16 and is held everyday for nine days until Christmas Day. In the city, even well-dressed matrons buy them dripping with melted butter and sprinkled with niyog to get them going for the nine dawn Masses.

The number of street stalls serving these delicacies has dwindled through the years, as has the number of church-goers during the Simbang Gabi. But there are still a few restaurants in town that serve the faithful who attend the dawn Mass.

The Christmas Tree Test

Posted by Cecile at Friday, December 18, 2009 0 comments

You Are Meticulously Precise

During the holidays, you take celebrating very seriously. It's like a job for you.

You make sure that every stocking is hung and that every Christmas card is sent.

You believe it's your responsibility to make sure that no one is forgotten. You have the longest Christmas list of anyone you know.

You can relax once everything is taken care of. You tend to start your holiday planning and shopping early.

Pulling Sticks and Yellow Notes!

Posted by Cecile at Wednesday, December 16, 2009 6 comments
It's been awhile since my son last pulled sticks at school and we were so happy for that; but last week, he pulled two for two consecutive days because he wasn't listening to his teacher and was talking so much! Yesterday, he pulled one again and it is not good. I just don't understand why he wouldn't listen and stop playing when ask to! He knew I don't like to see a "yellow note" inside his backpack that is why he's been hiding it from me lately. The thing is, he wouldn't show it to his Dad! My son is a good little man, he is just playful, but when it comes to school work, he always get 100% on their test and even gets stars, smiley faces, stickers and stamps on it. Any suggestions how to deal with his playfulness when at school? What about listening? We always tell him to listen to his teacher, be good and don't talk when the teacher is giving lesson...but somehow, he forgeo it every once in awhile, thus bringing me a note to sign and return the next day. I love my son so much and I am worried for him.

I Need This Wool Shirt Badly!

Posted by Cecile at Monday, December 14, 2009 0 comments
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Ramblers Way. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have always wanted to wear something I can wear any time of the year, but I couldn't find one. When I go shop, I can only find one that can be worn for a certain season like clothes you wear only on summer, or something for winter. Nope, I am not that picky either, just a simple shirt with long sleeve just like the one photo I have posted here.

While checking online for long sleeve top, I have found Ramblers Way, an online website that sell an all-purpose garment that is made of wool. Yes, you read it right! The great thing about this garment is that it is so sleek, sexy, and soft! I love that itcan be worn as a soothing baselayer during the day, for almost any activity, or during the night. It absorbs odor, thus making you feel fresh as if it's just come out of the dryer. You can wash it on machine without shrinking, thus retaining its normal shape and size. I think this Next-to-Skin Women’s Cross Neck top would be great for me. I like that it will protect during summer; I am 65% prone to skin cancer because of the medications I am taking.

Do You Spread Holiday Cheer?

You Spread a Lot of Holiday Cheer

During the holidays, you represent the true spirit of Christmas.

You give freely, and you enjoy this special time of the year.

There's a good chance that you spread cheer every time of the year... not just during the holidays.

You're kind, upbeat, and generous. Anyone who crosses your path is lucky.

Mommy Moments: Some of the Precious Moments with My Son

It's Friday once again...amazing how time flies so fast! It is Mommy Moments once again with the theme: Your Mommy Moments!

Just like every mother/parent, I love spending time with my son; and I miss it when he is at school; but I have to accept the fact that my son is growing so fast...and that he needs to be away from me to gain education. I am not a perfect mother that is why I feel guilty sometimes when I nag him when he doesn't put away his toys and makes mess all over the place I keep telling myself to loosen up and let him be...just like my husband said. Anyway, here are some of the moments I cherish most with my son.

We love reading book together...and Jake won't sleep without reading before going to bed.

Jacob got this thing from me...he won't be able to sleep without me by his side...just like me without hubby.

He still likes giving me a hug and kiss without any reason or being asked...
