Because of my surprise the hubby explained that it was supposed to be my 40th birthday present for 2012 that was not finished on time. So he decided to make it our 10th wedding anniversary present earlier this year. Hubby was about to cancel purchase but seller was finally able to finished design for today. Wonderful, Funtabulous, Merry Christmas to all!

Last night, hubby went to get the newspaper came back with nothing.
hubby: did we pay our newspaper bills, we don't have delivery today
me: we did not receive any bills yet, but its been a while.
I know, we can sign up for autopay and it will be our family Christmas gift.
Vyn: NOOOOO, that is boring

We've been having single digit temperatures and Bandit decided to find a new place to hang out when we are not around. His basement bed is not as cozy anymore. Caught him a couple of times snuggled on the kids' beds these past few days.

The Turkey basketball tournament.  The boys are learning how to play the game and handled the ball better.  More fun watching the game this year than last year.

PANEM (Philippine Association of NorthEastern Michigan) gala.  This is my second gale with the association and the hubby decided to join us this year.  It was a fun night with the whole family and Filipino friends.
November 23, 2013
My friends and I held a fundraising event to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan/ Yolanda which hit the Visayas region of the Philippines.
It all started when my mother in law called saying she wanted to donate her handcrafted jewelries to a fundraising event.  She called me on the 13th of November and then the ball just started rolling with friends willing to help in any way possible.
So proud of my friends who made this possible.  It was a successful event even when our area was hit by a storm days before the event and some friends have no electricity for a couple days.  It was also a cold and snowy day but still people showed up to support the cause.  A Great Thank You to Eveyone.
We are able to send funds through UMCOR of First United Methodist church, given some funds to a friend in Michigan whose family is directly affected and some of the funds also went to my friend in Cebu who is directly buying necessities and going to affected areas to help.

Vyn: How old can a person live?
Me: depends if a person don't get into accident, don't get any serious illness and take very good care of their body, then 80 to 100 maybe if we are lucky.
Vyn: Can a person live till 900?
Me: not that I know of.
Vyn: how about in bible days?
Me: don't know
This goes on for a few minutes, me insisting it is impossible to live till 900 and he insisting there is.
Vyn: I have proof, then he went to his bedroom and came back with the bible with the proof page open for me to read.

At karate this afternoon with other parents. While talking about vacation plans and pros and cons of camping.

A: What do you prefer, country life or city life?
Me: I like it both, but I miss city life because I like people watching, the street cars, buses, subways,every restaurants and conveniences all in walking distance.
M: (walking into the room ) Lots of rude people in big cities, drivers thought they own the roads
A: drivers like that are present here.
M: Midland is a big city.
 A: No, it's a little town with an attitude.
