Thinking of a unique giveaways

My brother is getting married this year.  The long wait is over for us because we have been praying for them to decided to finally tie the knot.  They are not getting any younger especially my brother and they have been living under one roof for almost three years now.  It is time for them to make it legal.  We are so happy for them and wishes them happiness always now that they are expecting their first baby.  Yes, my future sister-in-law is two months on the way.  This will be one of the happiest years of their lives.

We are preparing for their big event.  We want it to be memorable to the both of them.  They have already decided the place, and the church.  The date is not yet set, and while waiting for the date to be decided, we are thinking of the unique giveaways to their guest and visitors on their wedding.  I have to ask the brother first of their wedding motif and the giveaways that they like.  I hope to find a simple wedding giveaways that suit to the couple and will represent them.  Have to decide soon so we can start making the giveaways.

Had her first earrings

The five months old niece is the new apple of our eyes.  She gives us happiness every day because she is so bubbly little angel.  She grows real fast and I am sad thinking that I won’t have a baby to carry in my arms.  Each day with her is a treasure.  I always took a photo of her because she smiles a lot.  I do not want to miss any details so I took photos as the remembrance and to show to her parents who missed this moment because they both are working.  I want to keep them posted even on photos.

Recently, the niece has her first earrings.  Her mother decided to have it this early because if we will do it, later on, it will be very difficult.  We have experienced before on the daughter of my older brother, the baby cried a lot.  It seems like she knows what is going on, and she felt pained.   The sister does not want that to happen to her daughter, so, she decided to have ear piercing early.  Good thing the niece does not cry, but she is shocked.lol!  The niece is more pretty now and so adorable with her new earrings.  We bought the earrings at the mall with free ear piercing because going to the pediatrician is a bit expensive.  It was a good decision because the store is on sale. We saved a lot I must say.

What I want for Christmas

Christmas is indeed fast approaching.  I can feel the spirit of Christmas in our village, in the city and in the malls.  It is time for gift giving and receiving.  And I like the latter part…haha!  Just kidding!  I already have my list but not sure if I am able to buy it this Christmas.  I have to consider my budget, and consider saving money for the rainy days.  My nephews and nieces told me the gifts that they want to receive this Christmas.  I just give them my sweet smile.  I told him, I will try but not promise anything.  One thing that I can surely give them is my love, care and prayer.  It is for me and priceless.

Few days ago, I am surprised by my nephew.  He is asking me what I want for Christmas.  And said that he will give me a present this Christmas.  I am so touched because at his age, he thought of giving me a gift.  The nephew is six years old by the way.  I did not answer him right away because I am speechless.  Surely the nephew is sweet.  I never thought he would asked me that question at his age.  Anyways, thank you nephew for the thought.  Also, I already told him of what I want for Christmas and he run to his mother and said, Mama, Tita (aunt) want this for Christmas.haha!  We’ll see if I get what I want for Christmas.  Thank you JC!

My sister gave birth today.  She will give birth via C-Section, so we already know when will the baby arrives.  While waiting for the grand arrival of our little princess, I started getting things ready for her.  I washed the old baby clothes my niece will be wearing, also the new clothes she bought since she will be having a baby girl.  oh yeah, the sister will have baby girl and she is the happiest mom in the world.  Answered prayer so to speak.  She has been praying to have a baby girl since she already have two sons.

Back to the preparation I did, I am done preparing the babies personal things two months before her arrival.  Yes, that is how excited I am.haha!  In fact I am becoming impatient for the niece’s arrival.  Oh, by the way her name is Allysa Lianne.  Sweet name, isn’t it?  Anyways, today the long wait is over because baby Lianne is finally arrives.  And she will be home in three days.  So, I am making the final preparation this morning.  I washed the comforter baby Lianne will be using, and the mosquito net.  The house is so ready for Lianne.  Hope that the sister will regain strength fast and baby Lianne will be released from the nursery room so we can go home and enjoy watching Lianne and touch her finally.
