Do you play the keyboard instrument?  I don't!  In fact, I can't play any instrument.  I am not musically gifted.  When I hear my daughter play some music instruments and sing with tune, it makes me smile because she may be musically gifted.  Of course I am not sure about it but who knows.

Anyway, should my daughter be musically gifted, I will not hesitate to buy her a Korg keyboard. I know this type of keyboard is somewhat expensive but if my daughter will use it and take care of it, I will find a way to buy it for her.

I love to do little things that will surprise my wife.  I used to order flowers from my favorite florist and have them deliver flowers to my wife while I am at work.  Sometimes, I just buy her cards for no reason or sometimes, I just leave her notes.  She also does things to me that always gives me a smile and make me feel loved.  That's how our married life is.  We always do something for each other that will spice up our lives and to keep our married lives exciting.

When it comes to flowers, sending flowers to your loved ones is very easy.  You can go to any grocery store and get it yourself or you can call the florist to do it for you.  But lately, one of the most common is to order it online.  Ordering flowers online is very easy, plus you can see the flowers and arrangement that you want to buy.  If you are looking for a reliable place to order flowers, you should check out serenataflowers.  Serenata flowers have a variety of choices.  They have flowers for any occasion.  You can even have the option of the time of delivery.  They deliver flowers to your home or work place.

A good friend of us gave this toy jeep to Andrea.  Her daughter has outgrown this one but still in very good working condition.  She asked my wife if we want to accept it.  Of course, we gladly accepted and it was very nice of her to give this toy.  Andrea enjoyed driving it around!

Every child should go to Disneyland! That's what I believe. Well, since we live in Alabama, Disneyland is far from us. At 4 years old, our daughter hasn't been to Disneyland yet. One of our plans is for her to experience a trip to Disney. We are very sure that it will be a great experience for her if we will bring her to Disney. I am positive that she will be awed meeting her favorite Disney characters. I can just picture the grin in her face and the giggles.

There is so much to see in Disney that we have to plan it carefully should we visit it. I know that one day will not be enough. There is so much planning to do including finding a good deal for the airfare, affordable yet safe hotel to stay in and of course, disneyland tickets.

One of the things I learned when I visited Disney years ago is to purchase your tickets ahead of time to avoid the long line. Besides, it is also good to purchase your tickets ahead of time so that price increase can be avoided. Just be careful though, as tickets have expiration dates.

Maybe our next travel destination will be Disneyland South California. I wish this plan will be realized this year as my wife and daughter are really excited about the idea.

My wife is Filipino and she is born tan which I really like. Being natural tan, she doesn't need to visit any tanning salon nor we need to buy any tanning supply.

Most Americans that I know envies those girls with natural tan. I know that most of these Americans will dutifully visit tanning saloons and spend quite an amount of money to get the tan skin that they always wanted.

Nowadays there are now indoor tanning and lotion that you can buy easily. There are also tanning resources that are available if you want to learn more about proper tanning.

My daughter is very sweet. Lately she is into "two heads". It just basically means you have to put your head together to make two heads. Sometimes she will just squeeze me tight and say... "Let's make two heads daddy".

The simple joys of being a father.
I don't have any musical talent. I can't play any instrument nor have a good singing voice. My daughters have potential. My eldest daughter she got her talent from her mother's side. She loves music and she can play an instrument. When my eldest daughter was young, we encourage her to develop her musical talent. I remember buying her an acoustic guitar for her to play. Now that my youngest daughter is showing some musical potential, I thought of buying her a taylor acoustic guitar. I am not sure though if she is old enough to take care of it.
Summer has always been hot in Alabama. I am sure that it is hotter in Texas. During summer, plants in our lawn and garden needs water to survive. Having sprinkler systems houston will help you take care of your lawn easily. Watering all your plants and other stuff can be exhausting if you will do it manually. If you have sprinkler system this will make the job a lot easier.

Don't sweat on how to take care of your lawn this summer, have a sprinkler system that can do the hard work for you.

I so wish that we have enough funds so that my family can travel all over the world without worrying about finances. But this is not the case. Whenever we travel we have to save for it and plan for it so that we can enjoy it to the fullest and so that those trips will not end up broke.

I am just glad that our family was able to spend a vacation in my wife's country early this year. It was great for my daughter to spend some time with her blood relatives in her mother's side. It was a joy to see her spending quality moments with her grandparents, uncles and aunts and her cousins.

Our trip wouldn't be possible if we didn't find a great airfare deal from Orbitz. We were that there were Exclusive Orbitz Coupons that my wife has found. It was a great help for us.

The biggest expense on our trip was the airfare. The second was the hotel. Combined with all other expenses day to day, we realize that it will take a couple of years before we can go back to Philippines again. We need to save again for another trip.

One way of saving is using coupons when we go shopping. Whether we shop for groceries or clothes or other things online and in store, we always check for coupons that we can use. One great place to check for coupons is the Have you checked this site? They have varieties of coupons. From travel coupons to food coupons to clothing coupons they have it all. They even have lists of Online TMART Coupon. Those deal and discounts are really awesome.

Back to planning a trip, if you want to enjoy your vacation to the fullest, plan your trip ahead. Be sure to have extra money for unexpected expenses. And of course, don't forget to scour for deals and discounts online.

It doesn't just take anything to bring in a dog off the street and make it easy to live with. I remember that after we brought in a stray dog when I was a little girl. It was a tough time but he ended up becoming a beloved pet after a little bit of training. Well, I'd like to do the same with my family, but I'm not brave enough to take in a dog straight off the street. We're going to do it from an animal shelter instead.

Now I've done my fair share or researching on adopting a shelter dog and so has my husband. In fact, he was doing some intense pet adoption research one night when he came across the site and showed it to me. One reason we're considering a shelter dog is because of our current financial situation, so we looked over that website and I think we're going to use them to help us help ourselves.

We've finally mentioned pet adoption to the kids and they won't stop talking about it! I'm glad that we didn't talk about it before we started getting serious about it or else we'd really be paying for it right now!

Last week when my wife spent her days at the hospital, it was such a blur for me. I was constantly worried of her condition and I so wish that I can stay with her in the hospital but I can't. I have a job to do and I have Andrea to take care of.

I have realized so many things having to keep Andrea without her Mommy. I realized how hard it is to take care of a child. Andrea tells me that I don't do things right and I don't do things like Mom does it. It was a struggle and a learning experience.

I had to work and leave Andrea to my Mom while I am at work then get her back do fatherly duties and on top of all of these, worried how Lulu was doing.

I couldn't have done it all if not for Mom and Dan who willingly took care of Andrea. Thank you so much to both of you.

Lulu was finally released from the hospital yesterday. I picked her up and told her to spend the day and the rest of the days to recuperate and rest.

One less thing to worry about, Lulu is home.

I have always dreamt of having and owning a Mercedes-Benz. It has always been in my bucket list and till now it still remains on the list. Although I know that having a car is a necessity and not a luxury but for now, getting a new one means a new expense and with upcoming expenses like my daughter going to school soon, I might have a hard time paying for it.

So for now, I will just content myself with the Mercedes-Benz on display at They have used Mercedes-Benz vehicle and even a wide selection of new ones. The website has been referred to me by a friend who lives in Dallas and they have also bought their car from the dealer. The Dallas Mercedes-Benz website and dealer company has also been awarded the Best of the Best Dealer Recognition Award for 2011. This just goes to show that they offer quality service and their team is dedicated to cater to all their customer’s needs. Their professional experts will guide the buyer every step of the way till the vehicle is purchased. Their customer service is exceptional and with just a call, customers are assured that they are there to help them.

Should the time come when I am able to buy one of my dream cars, I would definitely visit the website again.

Lulu was rushed to ER last Friday. She stayed in the hospital since then. I now have to do everything she does with regards to taking care of our daughter. It is a tough job but I am learning.
