My eldest daughter enjoyed her Halloween celebration this year because not only she joined a contest but she almost filled her pumpkin with lots of treats! Anyway, she wore her vampire queen costume and asked me to paint her face to make her look scary and intimidating. She asked me not to forget to paint a red stain near her lips to make it look like a blood. It was indeed fun to look at her and other contestants. Some of them were so creative and I just could not help but admire their painted face. Even adults joined the contest and if I were the judge, I would really have a hard time choosing a winner. My daughter did not win but she still had fun because all of them were given goodies.
Recently, it just occurred to me to search on the net for a nice face painting. I found the site bounceowny.com and checked on their samples. The kids look so cute and how I admired the artwork because it was neatly done. I would so like them to make me look like a fairy. If you happen to live in New York and want to throw a party to yourself or to your kids, you can hire face painters Long Island to keep your guest busy and entertained. You need not worry of the result because you will be provided with professional face painter so I'm sure you will admire the result. But I guess it may be best if you go to their site and contact them for further information.
Or you can hire their services for your Christmas party, too. Even adults like to have their faces painted so I bet including this in your program will add fun to your party. So, better decide now so you can book them as early as now.

My daughter Chloe, who is currently in Grade 3, got these 2 gold medals today. She won 1st place in Computer Paint where she draw an Aquarium with different kinds of fishes. I wish I have a copy so that I can also see her winning piece. The other medal was won by her group (there were 4 of them) for T-shirt Design Contest for their Math Subject. You can see the shirt on the 1st picture posted above and Chloe even modeled it after they were finish painting the shirt. Luckily for their group, they were declared champion.
They celebrated Information Technology Week last week so Quiz Bee for Math and Science were also conducted. But winners for T-shirt Design and Computer Painting were only announced today. I really wish I have a copy of Chloe's computer paint but I have yet to ask from her teacher. She loves to draw and paint so much that I'm glad her God-given talent was noticed.
So, to my dear daughter Chloe, congratulations and I will always support you!
Oh, to give you an example how Chloe draw on the Computer paint, here it is:

I never thought that wishes do come true. Well, after reading some entries of my blogger friends about Fairy Hobmother, I was hoping that someday he'll visit my site, too. And now that he visited, imagine how happy I was to receive an email from him even though I know how busy he is. Ever the generous, Fairy Hobmother's ultimate mission is to grant every blogger's wishes and glad I was included in his list. His fairy overlords include items at http://www.appliancesonline.co.uk/ and I will be very happy to own a Washer Dryer. I am a full time housewife, a stay-at-home mom and having a washer dryer will surely help lessen my chores at home.
If you want Fairy Hobmother to visit you, just leave a comment here. You'll never know you might be the next person to receive blessings from him. And don't forget to follow Fairy Hobmother's Twitter account. Good luck!

Come to think of it, it was exactly 18 years ago today when my hubby and I started a relationship. We became boyfriend-girlfriend until 7 years later, we got married. Comes January, we will be celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary. We are blessed with two beautiful princesses and with that I am grateful. I just can't believe I've known my hubby for 18 years and still we're as if in getting to know stage. We are still adjusting and still trying to understand each other. Well, since we promised to stick together for better or for worse, we have to keep our vow sacred.

This picture was taken last November 1. My family and I visited my dad's grave and we stayed there until 10 pm. Earlier that evening, the view of the moon was so clear and beautiful that I asked my sister in-law to take a picture of me thus the result (see above pic). I love the result because it looks like the moon was just within my reach :)
Winter season is around the corner and I guess some of you have plans during your spare time. Perhaps you thought of going on a ski with your family or friends so just don't forget to bring necessary items to keep you all safe and warm. You might want to check ski jackets at PeterGlenn.com because they are currently offering trendy items on a very low price. You can browse for different designs and sizes. So, better check them out now while they are still available!

I often brought my eldest child, Chloe, with me on a weekend just to bond. She's now a tweenie and I just can't believe how time flies so fast. I used to cradle her before she went to sleep and now she's already a school girl who always excel in her class. Anyways, we went to Bigby's and ordered our snacks and we decided to have this Snack Platter. It has chicken strips, french fries, shanghai roll and quesadillas. Although it was quite expensive, it was still worth it. The food was really superb that I don't mind going back in there and order the same menu :)
