My Favorite Non-Animated Christmas Special

Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy

My favorite non-animated Christmas special is one that has been around for about 25 years. It isn't a special per se, it is a movie. When Christmas Eve and Christmas Day comes though, it turns into a special on just about station that it appears on. TBS has a 24 hour special of this movie and it is none other than the classic, A Christmas Story.

There is no better feeling after opening Christmas presents or after Christmas dinner, turning on the Best Choice TV and watching A Christmas Story. Everyone knows the classic line from that movie: You'll shoot your eye out! Little Ralphie wants a Red Ryder BB gun and gets his wish. He goes outside and sure enough, the BB ricohets and breaks his glasses.

There are just too many memorable scenes from this movie to count. The boy getting his tounge stuck to the lamp pole; Ralphie fighting the bullies; his first cuss word helping his father change a flat tire; eating out after they burn up the Christmas dinner. This movie is one that touches the heart and certainly is one that depicted life at that time. A Christmas Story is definitely my favorite non animated Christmas special.

Last Minute Shopping

A friend and I will be out in the mall doing some last minute shopping. We decided to buy something for our girl that can be useful for her school. For poor people like us, it's kind of expensive but hubby and I agreed to get one as a Christmas present for her.

Yesterday, I was so tired after eating so much in a friend's house. I went to bed @9;30 PM and woke up at 7:30 AM. Now, I'm so refresh and fully charged to start my day in the mall.

I know, going to the mall means spending money but that's how life on earth. It's up to us how to budget and buy the needs that we want.

Thank you, Lord for all the provisions, health, peace and love in our family. Thankful for our family in Pinas for keeping up of what they have.

The Snow has Finally Come!

Guest post written by Jeramy Sparks

The first snow of the winter is always so exciting. When I was a child, I would look forward to the first snow for weeks. My brother and I would ask my dad about the weather forecast nearly every day in November, waiting for that special day to arrive. If we heard that snow was on the way, sometimes we were so excited we couldn't get to sleep.

If it was a weekend, the morning of the first snow was always joyful and hurried. My brother and I would rush through breakfast so we could get outside sooner. On school days, we were always disappointed about having to go to school and put off playing in the snow until the afternoon. But, as soon as we were able, we would bundle up and run out into the snow to play.

Usually, my brother began building a fort while I attempted to make a snowman. After making our creations, we would go sledding on a hill behind our barn. Sledding was always so much fun. After a few hours of play outside, we would come indoors to warm up. My mom would make us steaming hot chocolate, and then we would watch a few children's shows on our Direct TV to relax. The first snow was always such a fun time for my family and me.

Gray Hair

Glad that our girl knows how to pull my gray hair now. Yesterday, she pulled 30 of them and she's so proud announcing the news to her Dada.

Before, she has a hard time using the puller. She keep an eye when her Lola used to pulled my white hair though. She even buy her own puller.

Last night, she promised me to pull more. Thank you, girl for such a big help to your Mama. You can be stubborn sometimes but overall, you're such a joy in our life. Your kisses and hugs are so special.

I'm sure Santa will climb in our Chimney on Christmas and bring your one and only present that you wish for.

Christmas Is Giving

Making a difference in someone's life is a blessing. There's so many many ways to share and impart what we have.

I do believe in give and take/vice versa.

Happiness and joy is what we feel, right?

Merry Christmas!

My Well-Rounded Babies

Posted by Hyman Weeks

Janna and Jenna are the lights of my life. They are 3-year-old twins that could not possibly be any different. Janna is the quiet, introverted type while Jenna cannot ever seem to get enough attention from anyone in her sphere of influence. They do share a strong bond and are always ready with a smile.

Luckily, I am a stay-at-home mother. The time not spent at a job is spent nurturing their personalities. I make it my business to educate them as best I can as I do not believe in leaving all of the responsibility to the school system. I get plenty of help from Nickjr.

Having DirectStarTV has been a godsend. Nickjr really is like having a personal pre-school for tots. They love shows like Little Bear, Franklin and the Fresh Beat Band. Dora has taught them a number of Spanish sentences and Kai-Lan has brought the Chinese language into their lives.

I am proud to have such accepting and well-rounded girls. Television programming has helped me achieve that. Heck, even I have learned a thing or two!

Best Reader Medal


The minute she hopped in our car, she showed to me her medal hanging on her neck. According to her, she's one of the best readers in their class and the teacher was giving out medals.

I looked at the medal, there's #1 number engraved on it. Ang if you flipped the other side, it said, winner!

When we got home, I called her teacher just to make sure that it is for real. Indeed, the medal was intended for her.

Thankful from Above that our child is so eager to go to school. They told me that somehow. someday, she will eventually changed. I mean, she will get bored in going to school. That would be sad...:)) That is why, I'm enjoying with all these precious moments of her life.

The Steamer Team Company

Once a year, we shampooed and steamed/cleaned our carpet. It's a matter of making our carpet clean from all kind of dust, pollens and our shoes that carries dirt from the outside. We hired someone to do it for us for better cleaning and result. For me, it's worth it to pay someone than us busting our butt to the maxed.

Well, this steam team people has their own deep cleansing process that combines the use of chemicals and a high-pressure blast of hot water and steam to remove dirt and grime from different materials and surfaces. Various types of steam cleaners are employed for the task of cleaning with steam, depending on the specific application. The end result is a carpet that is clean and will dry in a matter of minutes in most climates.

Well, a friend of mine who is living in Austin, Texas just bought a house. They were the second owner since they like the old type of house than the brand new ones. One of the agreement during the buying session is to clean the carpet really good. The owner lower the price a little bit so they will be the one to take charged or hired someone to clean it. So they made a deal and did a closing to the house.

My friend don't want her family to move right away not unless everything is neat, clean and organized. She's bugging her husband to hire a commercial carpet cleaners austin. She's a nurse and very clean person to begin with and I would say most women like clean house though. She wants deep steam cleaner austin for their great service and do a dog odor removal austin since the previous owner has two dogs. Aside from that she wants urine odor removal austin to work on the dog urine smell inside and outside the house.

I told my friend and asked her if she's really sure that it is the kind of house she's looking for. Her answer is yes! She fell in love with those Victorian houses and for sure after years of staying everything will be taken care off.

Diamonds Are Forever

Love is a many splendor thing...as what the song has continue to lingered over the many years. It's true and really, really true!

Last month was our 12th years anniversary of being husband and wife. How does it feel? I feel so blessed and happy that we've gone this far through thick and thin. Life is good, indeed without any reservation at all. Glory and honor be with Him for binding us together in sickness and in health, for richer and poorer and 'til death do us apart.

Last week, was my friend's big day, a wedding day and our family was invited. Sad to say that we didn't make it since it's an out of state affair. Our girl is in school and Hubby don't feel like going somewhere far.

Preparing a wedding ahead is the best thing we have to do and that was what my friend did. She has a year planning for everything. Her and his fiance were engage like 2 years already. She told me about a surprised diamond engagement ring that her lover gave to her in front of her in-laws during a Thanksgiving gathering. She was in tears that finally her fiance is proposing her.

She was giggling talking to me that night after their Thanksgiving dinner with regards to the engagement. Her fiance even told her that if she didn't like how the ring was being designed, she can have her diamond brought back to the jewelry store and she can have an engagement rings design your own. Well, my friend was happy and content of what she got and thankful that someone gave her diamond and that someone is her husband now.

As for their diamond eternity rings, they both went to the jewelry store and look for their own designed. She showed it to me via facebook and I was so impressed of how the stone sparks so real and genuine.

They always say, "Diamonds are forever!". True love is ever sure, ever lasting and ever strong. A diamond eternity ring is a tribute to the unfailing strength of love. A constant reminder that love is the steadfast center of our universe and the foundation on which all things rest.
