Polax Express Experience at School ( Momimhar posted on December 20th, 2017 )

Polar Express at school

I subbed in Kindergarten few days ago, and it was a Polar Express Day.  The school’s PTO organized this event for the students every Christmas season.  The children loves it.  They get to wear their favorite pajamas to school and bring their favorite pillows or stuffed toy (lovey for the younger ones).  Then they get to watch the Disney animated movie Polar Express while eating popcorn and having some chocolate milk delivered room-to-room by the PTO members.

It was indeed a special event for the students.  Their excitement was to the roof.  In fact, almost all of the children in the class I subbed kept asking me when will the Polar Express gonna start. 🙂  They’re so adorable.  They can’t wait for Christmas.

Kids Christmas Party 2017 ( Momimhar posted on December 18th, 2017 )

Christmas presents.

K and her friend Z.

Cheers! It’s Christmas time.

We had a great time at the Christmas Party at my dear friend R’s home first weekend of this month.  We all agreed to have it early this year because one of our friend was leaving for Singapore and won’t be back until the week after New Year’s.  Though we had to rush a few things a bit, everything went according to plan.  Our theme this year was Great Gatsby.  🙂 It was a potluck and all the party needs and party supplies were bought from Amazon and Party City.

Black, gold, and silver balloons. The decorating crew was busy.

Gift wrapping crew.

The children had a blast.  The games were very exciting and entertaining.  Every child who were at the party was given a Christmas gift to open on Christmas Eve.  Of course, grown ups exchanged gifts, too.  We played the White Elephant Exchanging Gifts game and it was a lot of fun.

Darling daughter enjoyed the company of her friends as well. She said it’s one of the best days ever.  I am glad.  I want her to have great memories with her friends, too.  Another thing is that, I want my daughter to learn the concept of sharing.  In fact, she is now learning to let go of her old toys, outgrown clothes, and books and donate them which is good.

A Blessed Happy New Year To You – It’s 2017 ( Momimhar posted on January 1st, 2017 )

Fireworks at our place. K and guests.

We had a blast celebrating New Year’s at our humble home.  Two of my dear husband’s co-employees and their families came over to celebrate with us.  They bought fireworks and we had fun shooting fireworks in a cold New Year’s Eve. The kids had fun dancing with Just Dance on Wii U. We’re supposed to do Just Sing Karaoke too, but for some reason the CD didn’t play.

It was a great New Year’s celebration.  We missed a few family and friends but they were sick and my brother-in-law and his wife already had a commitment ahead of time.

Happy New Year to you!  Wishing you all the best of 2017.

Merry Christmas to You and Yours #Christmas2016 ( Momimhar posted on December 24th, 2016 )

Have yourself a Merry Christmas.

It’s amazing how time flies these days.  It’s Christmas time again. Are you traveling to see family and friends and spend time with them this holiday season? Or, are you staying home and host a big Christmas Party? Whichever it is, I bet it’s going be a wonderful event for everyone.

As for me and my family, we are celebrating Christmas Day at my parents-in-law’s home in Tyler.  While making this post, my dear husband is currently prepping the brisket to put in the oven in a few for tomorrow’s Christmas Day dinner.

This Christmas Eve, we attended the church service at 6:00 P.M.  When we got home after church and had dinner, we started the party.  The children could not wait to open their Christmas presents.  So after dinner, we head on and started the Christmas Party. They started opening gifts from the youngest kid to the oldest.  Boy, they were so excited and anxious!

Opening Christmas presents.

So, the young ones had a great time opening their presents.  I think everybody loved the stuff they got from the family.  K was so excited to see if Santa will give her nice gifts for Christmas.  We brought the reindeer food she received from the class Christmas Party at school since we’re at the grandparents’ house.  We had to make sure Santa will stop by and drop off her presents.  🙂 Na-Na helped her scatter the reindeer food in the backyard.  (FYI: Reindeer food is a mixture of oatmeal and glitters or sparkles.)

After the kids’ unwrapping presents, it was adults turn to open gifts and play the White Elephant Gift Exchange. We missed my brother-in-law and his wife in this year’s family Christmas Party because they’re both sick.  Nephew M is in Florida and niece M and her family will be coming over tomorrow, Christmas Day.

It was a fun evening. So thankful for family, love, time, and the blessings we received all year.
