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
  • gloves
  • 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.  🙂

Celebrating 4th Of July 2014 ( Momimhar posted on July 4th, 2014 )

It’s 4th of July again.  As usual, we are hosting the celebration of the America’s Independence Day at our humble home with fireworks and hamburger sandwiches.  My dear husband’s parents came over.  His brother and sister-in-law did, too.  Some our friends including my darling daughter’s Godmother and her daughter also came to join the celebration.

We bought fireworks from the fireworks store located just about a mile away from our house.  It was about 9:45 in the evening when we began shooting fireworks because it doesn’t get dark until then (in summer season).  My husband and I agreed to get a few sparklers for DD.  She had fun holding the lighted sparklers until the ‘booming’ of the fireworks in the sky scared her.  It was too loud for her so my sister-in-law and DD went inside the house and they played dollhouse in her bedroom.

Some toddlers like DD are scared with loud booms.  Excessive exposure to loud noises can lead to a hearing problem.  In special occasions like this, it is better for them to stay inside the house and enjoy playing with cousins, aunts, or other kids.

It was nice to see family and friends gathering on special events like this.  My parents-in-law stayed for the night and, of course, my darling daughter was very happy.

Love From West Virginia ( Momimhar posted on September 8th, 2011 )

There’s a surprise in the mail box. Not an unexpected bill, no. It is a package from my friend in West Virginia arrived in the mail. She is my baby’s Godmother. We haven’t met yet but we communicate through the blogosphere and social network. She sent us a Christmas card last year with a picture of her family.

It was so nice of my mare to send a pretty infant clothing like this for my daughter. I cannot wait to see her in this outfit. When I showed them to my baby, she jabbered “tah-tah-tyeah-teess”. I think she said “They’re pretty.”

Heartily thanks to you Mareng Rose, Kids e-Connection, for this beautiful gift. The postcard is so cute. My husband said you are a thoughtful friend. Yea, I hope we can meet in the near future. Bless your heart. ‘Love yah
