Winter In Texas – Snow Today ( Momimhar posted on January 6th, 2017 )

Collecting snow for a snowball.

We got a bit of snow this afternoon around 1:00 P.M. here in North Texas.  My darling daughter kept telling me since this Tuesday about the possibility of snow because her teacher said so.  I checked the weather forecast and it was clear all week and the freezing days are Thursday to Saturday.  I found no chance of  snow or rain whatsoever.

We lit up the fireplace yesterday because it’s freezing.

But when I was entering Walmart store to buy a pair of mittens for K close to one o’clock this afternoon, I saw flurries falling from the sky.  I thought it won’t last long.  As soon as I got home, the flurries turned into snow.  So when my darling daughter arrived from school,  we put on our winter coats, winter boots, and mittens then went outside and play in the snow.

The water in the bird bath got frozen.

Throwing snow at me. 🙂

You know children are naturally curious individuals.  They always check on little things wherever they go, and whatever they do they will always ask  questions.  And we should be keen and ready to answer their inquiries.  One of the things that amazes them is snow.  What is snow made of? Why does it snow?  We know that snow is composed of snowflakes.  So K was checking the snow and saw snowflakes formation.  She said to me,

“Mommy, snowflakes have different shapes right?

“Yes,” I said.

Naturally formed snowflakes differ from one another through happenstance of formation. (Wikipedia.org)

She found two and pointed at them so I can see.  I won’t even see them immediately, those tiny little snowflakes on the plastic chair. 🙂

We had fun playing in the snow.  K’s most favorite thing was when she found two beautiful snowflakes.

Zootopia Movie Date With Na-Na And Cousin #Zootopia #DisneyMovie ( Momimhar posted on March 7th, 2016 )

It is another birthday celebration this month.  It’s Mom’s birthday.  Since we didn’t come over last weekend, K and I drove this afternoon to Tyler to visit our beloved folks.  And also to be with the family since K and I will be traveling and will be gone for eight weeks for our vacation.  We had a pretty nice plan during our visit and birthday celebration.  First was watching Zootopia with Mom and a cousin JA. He’s already on Spring break.  K was looking forward to this movie since it’s first trailer show when we saw the Inside Out movie last year.  Cousin SR had gone to Dallas with her mom and dad, cousin P was in school, and Paw-Paw was busy installing the new microwave oven he bought from Lowe’s, so only the four of us went to watch the animated movie from Disney.

We watched the Zootopia movie at Studio Movie Grill.  It’s one of those cinema chain where you can dine inside the theater.  We ordered popcorn and a few drinks for us.  To me, I rate the service 3 out of 5 stars.  Because it took a while before our orders served.  Well, I understand the busy work because there were so many viewers in the theater.  But you have to really watch it when you order drinks especially for your kids.  I ordered Strawberry Icee.  I did repeat the order more than twice to the server.  When it was served, it tasted different.  I am pretty sure it was not Strawberry Icee.  I don’t know if there was a mess up with the orders or what, but I am pretty sure that the drink they served wasn’t the one I ordered.  So Mom complained about it.  They took off that particular drink from the bill.  I suggest that you should take the first sip of your kids’ drinks when you’re at the movies.  It’s dark in the theater you know.

Anyway, my daughter liked the movie.  It was funny and thrilling.  My favorite funny part was when Officer Hopps and Nick went to the DMV where sloths are the employees.  You have to see the movie to find out why. 🙂  Okay, second in the plan was to let K play with her cousins.  That’s always in my agenda whenever we come visit. Lastly, was to spend the night so we have more time with Mom and Dad.  K loves being with her grandparents.

Bad weather started coming this morning – thunderstorms, heavy rains, and strong winds.  There’s a Flood Warning everywhere until Friday.  It was raining hard when we got out of the cinema.  It’s getting nasty so we will just go home tomorrow.

Double Birthday Celebration Was A Blast ( Momimhar posted on March 5th, 2016 )

It was a very fun evening I had few weeks ago.  My best friend NJ and I had a double birthday celebration at her house in Forth Worth.  I am still cannot find the words how enchanted I was of how beautifully the party was planned and put together very successfully.  We both had not idea how the party would be like because there was no tiny hint.  Not one little bit.  Our dear friends were very good in hiding clues.  Would you believe that they did a Casino Themed Birthday Party? NJ and I like going to the casinos. 😀  We don’t do it very often but we enjoy going.

Anyway, it’s my 40th birthday and I can say that this was it was a big celebration to date.  NJ is in her late 20s already.  The last time we celebrated our birthday together was in 2009 when we were neighbors in Fort Worth. We went Downtown and had fun at the disco and karaoke at City Streets (now closed). Those were good times, I tell ya.

Lots of food. Yum.

The party that night was a blast.  The decorations were amazing and the food was abundant.  Thanks to the guests who brought delicious American and Filipino foods.  In addition, NJ’s hubby and friends had set up a red carpet and casino.  NJ and I had a wonderful night on our birthday party.  They were very thoughtful with donating to my feeding program next month.  NJ, her sister, my daughter, and I are flying together to the Philippines for a vacation this month.  And one of the things in my agenda was having a small Thanksgiving feast for the children in my neighborhood.  I am excited about it.  It won’t be long and we will be in the Philippines.

There’s a lot of stuff went on at the party that evening – karaoke, disco, and games.  Oh how fun.  Thanks to our wonderful friends who made our birthday party celebration very successful and amazing.

New Playground Equipment at The Park ( Momimhar posted on February 26th, 2016 )

New playground equipment.

New playground equipment.

We cannot wait for this new playground equipment to be installed completely at the Olde City Park in Wylie. It is about time to have the old ones replaced since they were old and damaged already.  They were putting more slides, I can see. Spring is just around the corner and hopefully the play park will reopen very soon.

I am looking forward to this year’s social events in the town.  One of my favorite event is the City Night Out.  There are so many vendors and fun stuff for the kids.  Also, the fireworks display is awesome.
