We have been taking it easy since the pandemic hit. Though it was quite difficult to not roam around in town much, my family definitely kept being active outdoors. We mostly hung out in parks and drove around town sometimes.
Now that it is back to school once again, our schedule was modified a little. Plus, the holidays are just around the corner. Most activities we have now been school-related and extracurriculars. The schools were focusing on health and safety since the COVID-19 pandemic. Regular cleaning and sanitation is in full swing. Which, I think, is very important right now. Our kids’ safety is the priority.
Speaking of the holidays, we are almost done with October, you all. Thanksgiving is going to be here before we know it. Christmas, on the other hand, is peeking through. Aren’t you all excited? 😀
My darling daughter asked me one day early in September if we can put up the Christmas tree already. I was like, “you have to ask your dad”. She did. Then my dear hubby said “not until after Thanksgiving”. Well, we did not want to argue, so we will just wait until then. But, I thought of the small Christmas tree we had been keeping in the attic for years (which is a fiber optics one). I told my daughter we will just put it in her bedroom. She was super glad about the idea.
I took darling daughter to NorthPark Center (in Dallas, TX) to see an exhibit created from canned goods built by the talented local teams of designers, architects, engineers, and contractors. It’s called CANstruction. The main purpose of the exhibit is to gather food donations for the North Texas Food Bank.
The structures were skillfully and intricately built. Darling daughter and I were so fascinated. We even played the Guess How Many game to find out how many cans were in each structure.
Hello everyone! How have you been doing lately? Are you staying healthy? That’s good to hear. I am glad that you all are able to keep your cool in these times, especially, the school is out and the children are home. 🙂 It is quite difficult for some of us parents, but with understanding and helping hands, we can survive.
Days pass by so fast. It is June already. Can you believe it? Have you been to the home store recently? Believe it or not, there are Christmas decorations on display already. I was super shocked for a little while. Though Christmas season is my favorite time of the year, still I couldn’t comprehend why stores are putting out Holiday decorations this early. *sigh*
Now it makes me feel that I need to create a list of Christmas gifts. Well, I like doing that, for sure. My darling daughter and are good partners when it comes to Christmas shopping–in store or online. One of the nicest things we thought to give as Christmas presents this year is kids’ pajamas. Every child loves to own a pair of soft, cozy pajamas, especially in the wintertime. You can’t go wrong with that. Wearing those snug and comfy family matching Christmas pajamas while opening the presents on Christmas Day is quite a sight, don’t you think?
These fun Christmas pajamas are available on www.lazyone.com. If you haven’t checked them out yet, you should do so now, so you will have ideas on what to gift your loved ones this coming Holiday season. Made with 100% combed cotton with snug-fitting feature, these surely are perfect gifts. There are many designs and colors to choose from and sizes from toddlers to adult sizes.
My darling daughter and I picked the Cabin Moose Kid’s Long Sleeve PJ’s because we liked the style and the color combination. We are into the fair isle design. 🙂
