The women wrote: "Woman! Without her, man is nothing."

YoU wiLL neVeR KnoW if YOu Can...

if you will never try.
Last night I was busy blog hopping. When I liked the post, and felt like leaving something valued ideas about the post I would leave some comments.
I have seen this many times, but I don't know how to install it in my blog. So last night, I tried to put something on my comments page. Above the comment box in some blogs, you see like this: THANK YOU FOR LEAVING COMMENTS. I was wondering how could I add it. So, I opened my dashboard and clicked settings, then comments tab. There on the comments tab, you see COMMENTS FORM MESSAGE. So, I tried to write something like this: THANK YOU FOR SO MUCH FOR TAKING TIME TO READ! and it worked not only that, I also wanted to add my other site. But I don't know how to add my other site. I want when somebody clicks the name of my blog, he will be directed to my blog. I need to have HTML tags. I really don't know how to make html tags. What I did, I went to the dashboard again, open POSTING tab, and create new post. I wrote the name of my blog there, put the link, clicked EDIT HTML which is located at your upper right hand beside Compose. So, I made the html tags. I copied the tags and pasted it in the box of COMMENT FORM MESSAGE. That is what I have learned yesterday. I tried it first, if it didn't work then that's the time I will shout and ask for help from other blog experts.

My kids on the billboard

As what I have posted in my other blog that learning is a continuous process. I will keep on learning. I keep on looking for new things. I want to post something new in my blog to show the things I have learned and share to my visitors and readers. What I have learned yesterday, was to put effects on the photos. The photos that I have displayed in my previous posts were boring.  While surfing in the net for fun photo effects I came across this site picjoke. You don't have to have funny pics to look funny. But because of the effects, your pictures look funny and amazing. I showed the website to my kids. They chose the photo effects they wanted and were amazed the result of their pictures. We were sitting behind the computer for hours trying different pictures and effects. They were very excited. These fancy photo effects give extra magic to your pictures which fascinate the viewers. You will be having fun experimenting different pictures and effects.

The program is very simple even my 8-year old daughter can do it. She chose this effect and the picture too. Just upload your pictures and select amazing effects in less than one minute. What  fascinating is, they make EVERY DAY - NEW PHOTO EFFECT. Thus, you can change the effects every now and then. I am so excited to try more photo effects. I cannot wait to post other pictures with different effects. I am really having fun and I think you too. Visit the picjoke to make funny pictures. Choose something weird, HAVE FUN!

HeaLThy aFTeRnooN SnaCks

This year I encourage my kids to eat more fruits. So, I prepare every afternoon slices of frutis like kiwi, apples, pears, melon and banana. They eat more fruits if I do it in this way. My hubby buys fruits every week. We put them in the fruit bowl but they don't even care to get some. The fruits will just rotten in the bowl.

Try to slice the fruits and put them on a serving dish. Just leave it on the table. They just come and pick some. They are more attracted to the fruits when they are peeled, sliced and served.
You don't need to have apples or imported fruits. Just have banana, chicos, mangosteen, durian, or any local fruits  will do. Stop giving junkfood and candies.
What is your afternoon snacks?

Stylish Bath Robes and Bath Towel Wraps

Looking for a different kind of gift then you can find it here, gifts for her and him, babies, kids and for everyone.
After having a refreshing shower or bath, you need a thick and terry bath robe to make you warm. This bath robe is made of 100% cotton, triple sheared, terry cotton velour fabric.

I like this waffle bath robe. The 3/4 length sleeves, mid-calf length, two patch pockets, double belt loops and a matching belts attract me so much. It is lighter because it is made of 60% cotton and 40 % polyester woven waffle weave fabric. If you do not want bath robes you can have bath wrap. It is available in three sizes and nine colors. They have kids, teens and adult sizes. You can design it. You can put your name or monogram it for a perfect gift like birthdays, graduations, etc. You can bring the towel wrap in a laundry or duffle bag which looks very stylish.
All these you can find at Posy Lane. You can design your own bath robes and bath towel wraps. Isn't it great!

KeVin on the SLeigH

Last Sunday afternoon after lunch Kevin and I decided to take a walk in the park nearby our house. Since the snow was still thick, he asked me if we could the bring the sleigh. So, we brought the sleigh with us. Annabel did not want to go out. She stayed at home, playing her toys. I took pictures of Kevin on the sleigh. We were out for 2 hours. When we were home I immediately drink coffee to warm my cold lips. Kevin had a cup of hot chocolate. We had a great afternoon.
