The plant that I have in front of our house has no leaves now but it's full of fruits. I am not sure what kind of tree is this but they are really pretty. The leaves and the fruits makes it so perfect for Ruby Tuesday.

We went to Sears last Wednesday to look for a new Christmas tree. Hubby got tired of our white x-mas tree so he said that we need to buy a new one. We chose this Twilight tree with LED lights because it is suppose to be an energy efficient.
We let our daughter decide which one should we buy and that's what she picked. We all liked it so we bought it.
We decorated it today. I'll post the photos next time.
For the last couple of days, I spent my time decorating our humble abode for the holiday. The kids helped me decorating our newly bought Christmas tree. Please disregard the big bow on the tree, it doesn't belong there lol..
While my daughter and I were busy decorating the tree, my son was also busy doing his own thing lol. He was playing with his holiday train given by his Aunt Chris, thanks Tita.
My sister in law, gave us her Santa Ski Slope which you can attach to your Christmas tree. Since our tree is rotating, we did not put it there. We did however assembled it just so the kids can play with it. This activity somehow give them the sense of going to ski resort hehehe. They watch and play with this ski slope over and over again. If you will come to our home today, you will see how happy my son playing with this ski slope.
I wonder if he would be interested with this kind f activity when he is grown up. Steamboat ski rental delivery would be the best solution if that time comes. Good thing there are places where you can rent ski stuff.
For some, it's just an ordinary steps, but for us, it is a big part especially with my kids' milestones. We used to live in this house, so part of their memories was created on this house. They learned how to climbed here.
So every time we visit Pap, we always find time to play in these steps.
You can tell that my kids can't sit still. Our photos are blurry lol..

Photos were taken at the Pittsburgh Zoo. Enjoy the different kinds of snakes.
Of all the critters, snake is the one I am scared of. I had an experience of being chased by a snake when I was still a kid. My faher used to take care a huge rice field and he would take us every time he works. One time he asked me to check the scare crow and I saw the top the rice plant's leaves moving. When I investigate, the snake hisss at me and I ran and yelled for help. Luckily, Papa was nearby and he killed the snake with his machete.
November 15 - 19 was the celebration of CAtholic School Awareness Week. They celebrated it through showing their SPIRIT and LOVE for their school by having a "Spirit Week" filled with different ways for both teachers and students to show their charisma and excitement!
MONDAY was a SILLY SOCK DAY - They wore silly, unmatched socks with their school uniform, it was just plain silly.
TUESDAY was a CRAZY HAIR/HAT DAY - Since St. Joe's is no ordinary school, they show their craziest hair or funniest hat. Some students colored their hair and some wore big hats. I braided Rylie's hair the night before and brushed it up in the morning.
WEDNESDAY - WE ARE THE BEST!! - Showed that they are the best by dressing to IMPRESS! They wore their Sunday's best which means that no jeans or sweatpants. They stepped out on their finest!!!
THURSDAY - BOX TOPS - to show that they are at the top of the list of "Best Schools". They brought all the box tops labels they have collected. Each class has a goal of 35 pieces but Rylie brought 51 pieces alone. Thanks for the contribution of Jen, Chris, and Dad in clipping and collecting their box tops labels.
FRIDAY - SCHOOL SPIRIT DAY - Go all out in their favorite St. Joseph apparel. Free Dress ... Rylie worn her school hoodie, it's a bit big for her but that's the smallest size we can get. She can't even wear the sweatpants that matches the hoodie. She didn't want to wear this, she said that it's not fashionable lol..
Have a happy Thanksgiving day celebration everyone!

Some of you might have read the article I posted about our washing machine which kept having problem lately. My husband and I browsed for some solutions about the said problem online. We found some answers to the same problem we had. Thanks God for the Internet as it saves us money. Hubby fixed it himself through the suggestions online.
When we bought our washer and dryer, we decided to get an HE or high efficiency set because it is suppose to be a high end. What it doesn't tell you though is that there is a manual at the bottom of each machine to tell you want to do just in case of malfunction. I think this is one strategy from the retailer so that they could charge you a whopping amount just in case of malfunction.
Please don't mind my goofy pose there while doing laundry hahaha.
Anyhow, we thought we couldn't fix it so we made some window shopping at Lowe's that day and was mesmerized by this set lol.Ruby Tuesday everyone!
