Picture of me a few months ago
As a bear
Which Chloe took for me
Made me think
I need to be a mother
Who is not goofy all the time
But a little bit more serious
So I went to get a new pair of glasses
From our lovely friend Amy who opened her new practice
I almost never wear glasses
But keep a pair with me just in case

Our children believe
All the kids with glasses at school
Are smart kids

Now you know where I am going with this
I can look smart
With glasses on
Without stressing myself out to be serious :)
At least in my children's eyes :)

Now their mommy looks smart
And serious ;)
With new glasses on
I finally got my small white Christmas tree this week
But I went to a lot of thrift stores
Before I found one at Wal Mart for $35

I know myself
I might not see the small white Christmas tree after this Christmas
Until many years later
When I decide that will be the tree again

So I went to a lot of thrift stores
To save some money
Not knowing a small white Christmas tree was waiting for me
At Wal Mart
For $35
But in the meanwhile
I bought stuff
...Many stuff

Here are some of the stuff now in my possession :)
Old silver cake tray...$3.99
Glass Cover...$1.99

I even baked cookies Wednesday night
To keep some in there
Just like those all American families in magazines

...But I am a good cook
...And have problem of
...Stopping myself from eating too much sweets
...So by Thursday morning
...they were
...all gone

...I really need to grow up

Happy Friday!!
And stay warm :)

Happy Birthday

Today is my lovely husband's birthday

My favorite Japanese book said
Birthday is special
Because it is the day your special someone was born

So it is the day to thank
"Thank you for being a part of my life"

Because without the day of him being born
My life would have been less special

So this day is very special for me
....Not because we get to eat out :)
....Or we get to eat a cake without feeling guilty :)

But gives me a chance
To stop
And appreciate
My life

Happy Birthday!!

I found lovely taxidermy on Etsy
I've always had fear of taxidermy
Because we had one at home
When I was little
It was displayed at our foyer
And it really scared me
Every time I opened the door
But some people are just so creative
Even I who is scared of taxidermy
They are so lovely :)

Turkey and Christmas Decorations

We will be eating turkey all week
Because my lovely husband wants to practice every year
If I let it happen
He will practice every day
And he will sneak out to buy more turkey at night

I think
He might be going through mid life crisis
....Since his mid twenties :)

In the meanwhile I am testing out Christmas decorations
To see what should be out this year

I am leaning toward
White, silver and green
And different shapes of Christmas lights

Can't wait to see your Christmas decorations...
Keep warm!!
And wish you a nice holiday tomorrow :)

Looking For A Small Christmas Tree

I was looking for a small white Christmas tree during the weekend
I don't feel like having a big green Christmas tree this year
I want something simple
So I went to many stores to look for a small tree
And ended up buying a lot of things
....but a Christmas tree :(
But I am deciding on what to give for our girls for Christmas
I am making a matching aprons for them and for their dolls
So that they can start learning how to cook
So someday we can all be in a same kitchen
Cooking together

I can just picture
Me as a boss of the kitchen
And them three as disgruntle workers :)
And I will make blankets for their dolls, too

Because I've been questioning
About the amount of toys they have

My lovely husband thinks there is nothing wrong
With three gigantic mountains of gifts on Christmas day
And when I say gigantic

But I am the one who takes them to donate a few months later
And it makes me feel like
I'm failing
...In teaching them something very important in life

I need to go
Because Lauren is playing in the bathroom
And I have bad feeling about
What she is playing with

Happy Monday!!
And stay warm :)
