Happy birthday to ANDREA, a cute baby girl who is turning two on December 1, 2007. The birthday bash is scheduled at 3:30 at Pines and Palms, Claytown area, Daro.

Hmmmmm.....what to give the girl? I think a book with large colorful photos? A colorful pictionary? I am sure the two-year-old will enjoy the huge colorful pictures.

went to the carnival

Last night after feasting at a friend's house, my grandkid and I proceeded to the carnival where everybody usually stops to complete the festive feeling. We first rode the roller coaster which I did not really enjoy for I was more like worried about the sturdiness of the ride, afraid that it might just break or crumble in the middle of the roller coaster commotion. It was noisy and rickety and I had to give a signal to abort the crazy round and round motion because it was making me dizzy and fearful of my life. Our next stop was at the horror ride which was supposed to scare us some more as the small shaky vehicle went in and out of a dark cave where moo-moos and some people in halloween costumes were to meet the riders and boo-boo them. Well, it was the same old trick we had last year and I wonder why our five-year-old kid still wants to ride that. We got into a duck ride, still sounding and moving like it's going to snap anytime but which the kid enjoyed, then paid another ten pesos for another shooting game in which the kid was happy to shoot or hit two toy pigs out of 12 shots.

We went home very tired.

December birthstone---tanzanite, zircon or turquoise

birthstone for November---topaz or citrine

Jewels above show citrine or topaz, birthstone for November.

the carnival

November is fiesta month in our city and today I could hear the noise at the carnival or circus as the city welcomes the fiesta which is happening the day after tomorrow. From the outside when I passed by the carnival I could see the various moving attractions and the beckoning invitations of circus people.

No wonder our five-year-old kid in the house would not let me sleep unless I promise to her that we go there first thing tomorrow, to which of course I nodded.

The traditional ferris wheel, merry-go-round, kiddie boat ride, roller coaster, octopus ride, horror ride and a lot more rides fill every kid's heart with joy. Adults are forced to go to carnivals because of kids in the house. Otherwise, without any child in the house, no one bothers nor cares to even look at carnivals.

what to give a five-year-old this X'mas

We have a five-year-old kid in the house who loves to paint. Whenever we go to a department store she'd always look for stuff she could use for painting and would always ask us to buy one for her. The bad thing is, it makes our house messy. She uses a lot of paper and water that she mixes with the colors and this activity creates dirty colors everywhere----in her hands, face, legs, sofa, floor, etc. So definitely we are not giving her anymore of those stuff. Which leaves us with a problem. What do we give her this X'mas that she will appreciate?

Dolls seem to be temporary favorites of hers and they never last as their torsos and extremities seem to be bound to be broken or detached. Clothes do make her happy but after that she'd still look for toys, like clothes are not supposed to be gifts. She used to have a dollhouse complete with all the furniture which got lost after a while.

A toy computer? Hmmmm.....could cost much, but we'll see.

Christmas is for children

We always hear people say that we celebrate Christmas because of our children or because of the child in each of us.

Why? Don't adults deserve to have some Christmas celebration too? Truth is, no child's Christmas will ever be that fantastic without the adults who make everything fun for the little boy or girl.

So let us make this Christmas a happy one not only for the children around the world but also for those with wrinkled faces who too were kids once.

Starting today, I am going to write a little something about Christmas, like maybe some gift ideas to give to our loved ones.

ABC Learning Center reaches 20

How swift indeed time flies. It seems like only yesterday when my kids went to ABC Learning Center to get their first taste of school at 4 and 3 years old. Now, 20 years after, ABC Learning Center has branched out and has grown from its first batch of 22 pupils to thousands.

The school's 20th foundation anniversary starts on November 15 to 18. Parades, dances, shows, and exhibits will create an atmosphere of fun for everyone. The annual search for Prince and Princess as well the search for the school idol will highlight the celebration.

ABC Learning Center turns a year older

One of the pioneering kiddie centers in our city is celebrating its anniversary middle of November and for the kids in this school it would mean loads of fun and surprises. A colorful parade will wow the city after which a fun-filled program follows at the gym.

Details of the said event will be given in my next blog.

In the meantime, let me greet the school a "happy, happy birthday!"
