My ?0th Birthday

I turned 40 last week and to celebrate my four decades of life on earth, and while Ate is still on a school break, I took a  two-and-a-half-day leave from work which when added to the weekend and a holiday became a 5-day break. Not bad eh!

When I came home from work before my leave, the eve of my birthday,  MyGirls surprised me (again) with a "sweets and treats buffet".

There was a multi-flavored cheesecake. It's when you can't decide on a flavor so you take one slice of every flavor. It was awesome! There were also chips, cupcakes, Ferrero Rocher chocolates, and Root Beer! Thank you girls. :)

Ashrie and Lia made birthday cards. Ate gave me a Teddy Bear Snow Globe and Jane gave me a new mailbag.

We also attended an after church Pinoy gathering. It was a Boodle Fight! The dining table was amazing, take a look!

And we actually did a staycation in one of the boutique hotels in the city (my hotel review will be in a separate post).

So, that's it for now. Until the next one!

Father's Day 2017

Happy Father's Day to me and to all awesome dads!

MyGirls surprised me last Saturday afternoon (after work) with an early Father's Day greeting. They say Sunday mornings will be very busy because we will be preparing for church. And that's so true, so I really appreciate the gesture that they did to kinda slip this greeting into our busy schedule.

Thank you my dearest girls. I love you very much!

Sunday was church time in the morning. Evangel gave each dad present a jar of Janice Wong's cookies and the kids made a Father's Day craft. We had quick lunch at McDonald's Causeway Point. We bought Ate new pairs of shoes and a new Peppa Pig scooter for Lia.

When we reached home, it was cleaning day. And of all days, I thoroughly clean the vacuum cleaner! It was a day well spent, to say the least, because hen I have a productive day, I am happy and contented.

To all dads, a Happy Father's day from Me&MyGirls.

Carton Playhouse DIY

Kids love the latest toys (and they can be a source of most of the clutter at home. It creeps from the Kid's Rooms to every inch of your floor space if not contained well. They can even be very expensive. They say the best toys are free. And it's really true as we all know from experience.

Here's a very easy DIY (blogged by Ashrie), completely free and I'm sure your kids will surely enjoy playing.

We had a big, old carton box  that Mom creatively turned into a playhouse. Mom did all the cutting and designing while Lia and I did the decorating. Just take a look at how it turned out!
If you want to make a house like this, you will need:
A big-sized carton box
Markers (optional)
Plate (if you want circle windows)
Cutter or scissors
A pencil
A long ruler
A smaller box (optional, for the chimney)

Lia and I really like our playhouse. Especially when we get to draw inside. We drew many things inside our house like pretend food, jewelry, clothes, some scribbles and even ourselves!
