Vintage Toy Collection

I have slowly been collecting vintage toys over the years.

Even before I knew I was pregnant with Sophia, I have adored vintage toys and wished that I could find more reasons to buy and collect them!

And now that Sophia is in the picture, I am sure this small collection of mine will continue to grow, not just for her but for me too ;-)

And apparently, I'm not the only one loving these vintage toys!

Some of these are now being marketed again for this generation.
Fisher Price in particular is doing so, just take a look at these "re-runs"...

You can buy them thru AMAZON
... all sold at new 'vintage-looking' condition at a fair price!

In fact, Sophia got one of these for her birthday ....

How about you, do you have a favorite vintage toy you'd love to see again or even play with again?
Any toy you consider an heirloom perhaps?

I think these are truly timeless since my daughter is enjoying all these as much as I think I did back then!

Have A Great Fall Weekend!

Evolution of a Boy's room

Since we are all still 'recovering' from a very busy weekend after Sophia's birthday party, this  post, will be short and sweet.

Now that my son is off to Highschool ( I feel like it's college since he will live in the school dormitory ), I wanted to look back and remember how our "little" boy's room has evolved thru out his time in our home...



Makes me teary-eyed just looking at all the changes.

 And yet, here we are with more changes - in his life for that matter!
  Hoping and praying that this decision we all made together would turn out to be the best for him in the end. 

I MISS HIM TERRIBLY ALREADY!Why do kids have to grow up so soon?!!!

Have a Great Week!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...

PS: THANK YOU ALL very much for your words of sympathy and comfort with regards to my grandmother's passing. Words are very powerful and what you conveyed was truly helpful and comforting to me and to the rest of my family.

Flamingle Party Prep

Ok, like I mentioned the last time, I wanted to share with you some details of the preparation I'm doing for Sophia's first birthday!

The theme as you know, is FLAMINGO!

Since it is her First birthday, mommy gets to decide since she can't tell me yet what she wants her theme to be! ;-)

Let's start with her invite...

And since I was so pleased on how her invitation turned out, I ordered the rest of the party stuff from the same store as well!

Like this Birthday Poster
I love how I can print as many as I want with all the stuff that you get to order online.
Digital designers at the tip of my finger! LOL! ;-)

Cupcake toppers

Water Bottle Cover

Welcome Sign Banner

I plan to have an Ice cream bar and also a candy/dessert buffet where kids (and adults) can fill the goodie bags I made for them!

Here's a sneak peek
I got the idea, instructions and templates from OH HAPPY DAY.COM (HERE)
Thank you Caitlin and Stephanie for such a fab idea and for sharing it with us!

So, what do you think?
I know, I know, I go overboard, but can you blame mommy?

Hope to share with you the actual party soon!
Wish us luck and praying for NO RAIN that day!

Have a Great Weekend !

P.S. It's a bit ironic that we'll be celebrating on this Saturday here in the U.S. while in the Philippines, my grandmother, who passed away on Monday, will be buried. I have mixed feeling right now but I know my Lola Mila (Grandmother) will understand our joy in her great grand daughters milestone celebration. I pray for Lola everyday and thanks to "e-burol" I am able to attend her wake everyday until her actual funeral day. I will remember and love you always lola, you've given us so much and asked nothing in return. I know you are happy now with Lola in heaven. I know you will watch over all of us everyday.
