Winter And Cold Weather Essentials ( Momimhar posted on March 6th, 2015 )

Snow on the porch and backyard.

I was the one who got excited about this snow storm that went on overnight last night.  I didn’t get to sleep until around three o’clock in the morning.  Isn’t that crazy? 🙂 Once in a while I opened the window blinds and looked outside to see how big the snow fall was and how much snow we’re getting. I also was glad I had contacted Style by Carden Exteriors Inc to keep my roof in tip top shape and I knew if the snow had damaged my house they had great storm damage defense to keep my home safe and secure.  In short, I was super excited that it was snowing. 🙂

When I woke up this morning, I quickly looked out the window and saw so much snow on the porch and backyard.  My dear husband already left for work when I got up.  He borrowed my car today because it has better front brakes.  It was so bright and quiet outside.  As usual, my darling daughter didn’t wake up until around eleven o’clock in the morning.

Here’s our snow girl. She’s bigger this time. 🙂

As soon as we finished eating brunch (breakfast/lunch meal), my daughter and I put on our winter coats and boots.  In cold weather like this, it is highly recommended to wear think winter clothing, cold weather accessories, and footwear like snow boots if you want to stay outdoors for an hour or so.  You would want to feel warm and comfortable while playing in the snow so you have to bundle up.

Winter Clothes 

  • coats
  • heavy jackets
  • sweatshirts
  • leggings
  • thermal pants
  • sweatpants

Cold weather accessories

  • scarves
  • head band
  • leg warmers
  • thick socks

  • winter boots
  • snow boots

Winter storm in Texas 3-05-15

My daughter and I built a snowman.  Actually, she wanted to call it a snowgirl.  This time it’s a bigger one.  It was a wonderful time playing in the snow.  We got about 4 inches.  That’s a lot.

This last photo was taken a day over seven years ago.  It was two weeks after my arrival here in the US and it snowed in Texas.  That was my very first snow experience.  Yesterday’s snow storm was a day early seven years ago.  🙂

Nice Day To Fly A Kite ( Momimhar posted on September 10th, 2014 )

It’s a windy day today.  Nice day to fly a kite.  So after my darling daughter rode her trike and bike, we flew her kite.  She got to fly the kite first but the wind just blew it away to the bushes in our front yard.  So she let me do it.  I was flying the kite under the shade of our tree.  Then she said she’ll catch the tails of the kite.  We had so much fun.  K laughs and giggles every time she catches the tails and the kite itself.

It is close to 100 F outside but the strong breeze helps beat the heat a little bit.

Fascinated With The Two Princesses Of Disney’s Frozen ( Momimhar posted on July 12th, 2014 )

The Disney movie Frozen was a hit and children have been very fascinated with its characters – Princess Elsa, Princess Anna, Olaf the snowman, and Kristoff.  My little girl loves the two princesses.  She even wanted to have the dress up gowns.  How I wish I can buy her the gowns for dress up.  Right now they are still kind of pricey.  But I am keeping my eyes open for good deals.

Yesterday, we visited my friend F.  It’s the regular play date for our kids.  I didn’t know that my friend prepared a big lunch for everybody because besides me and darling daughter, our two other girl friends came over.  In addition, I was also meeting someone at her house to discuss an employment opportunity for me.  That person happens to be my friend’s new friend.  🙂

Anyway, our kids enjoyed playing at their outdoor playground set.  When it got very hot outside, they ran into the house and sang karaoke.  It was nice that F and her husband have a karaoke system with songs downloaded in it.  They have Disney’s Frozen soundtrack downloaded in the system.  Man, the girls were like having a concert yesterday.  🙂

Play Date And Birthday Party ( Momimhar posted on April 24th, 2014 )

We went to a play date again at my girl friend’s house this afternoon.  I didn’t know that she was celebrating her eldest daughter’s birthday today too.  So my daughter and I went to the store and bought a birthday present and a greeting card for the celebrant.  I advised my friend that we will be a bit late because we will be coming from the library after the story time.

My cousin and her two girls were already there when we arrived.  The children were very glad to see DD.  They headed toward the playground in the backyard immediately.  My darling daughter enjoys playing with her cousins and my friend’s daughters.  Sometimes she asks me when she can play with them again.

I told my husband that we have to buy a play set for her so she can play in the backyard in the spring, summer, and fall.  I think our daughter is big enough to enjoy a backyard play set.  And, I think, it will save us time and gas to drive to the play areas in the mall or to the playground in town.  If we do want to go to town, it will be once in a while.  I haven’t received a confirmation yet.

Anyway, it was a great party.  As usual, DD didn’t want to go home.
