Setting up Braidens LEGO took us a long time, Braiden has an extensive collection of LEGO. Braiden has been collecting his LEGO since he was very young.

We used to put his unused and loose pieces of lego into small plastic tubs, although it kept his room clean and tidy it wasn't very efficent. Braidens LEGO people/mini figures were all in seperate tubs as the tubs didn't have any organisation.

So... we decided to come up with a plan and organise all of his LEGO.
Get my husband to build Braiden a desk/storage area for all of his lego and drawings.
Then we would organise all of his LEGO, we used tackle boxes and ziplock bags.

This is a photo of when my husband installed Braidens desk, the shelves to go above it weren't yet finished but would be installed in the next few weeks. 

Here is the finished desk/storage area.
These are the shelves, they provide a lot of space. Space for assembled LEGO and sets on top, and underneath all of his LEGO mini figures which are set up in categories. (e.g Batman, StarWars, etc)

Here is Braiden at his new desk, I hung 2 photos of stormtroopers above his desk space.
Braiden enjoys reading, watching, drawing and playing with his LEGOs at his new desk.

If you want any desks or bench tops done you can enquire Joe DiBella at Able Bench tops located in Sydney Australia:

Snowy the Silkie

This is SNOWY  , she is a Silkie and our new pet , she is very timid but loves posing for photos , I can just dress her up or place her somewhere and she will just sit there.  
Unfortunately the other day she fell ill and I have to rush her to the animal hospital and she stayed there overnight . I received a phone call informing me that Snowy did not make it , she had a severe gastroenteritis and had septicemia .
I miss her so much , she was a cute lil Silkie ....

From Australia with Love....

Wow, Christmas is only 27 days to go as of this writing and I'm already excited. Our Christmas tree at the storage room together with other Christmas stuff will be out again very soon (maybe this weekend) so I can start decorating. You know, it will take at least 3 or 4 days before I finish all the decors that I have in the house. Yes, I sometimes go overboard but that's me. I love decorating during Christmas as it is festive and it makes my family especially my kids. They usually help me decorate the tree and they always have fun with it. I'm torn between a colorful Christmas tree versus the traditional one but I'm sure my tree is fab again just like last year.

I have started my Christmas shopping too, bought some gifts too that I can include in the box for my family back in the Philippines. I know they are excited to receive some goodies from year and I have to make sure that they will get some if not this December or early January. My eyes are also featsin with all the jewleries that I saw at and hoping/wishing atht I can get another piece for myself. It may seem selfish but hey, I also deserve a gift for myself. I sure hope my hubby gets a clue haha.

The kids are all doing well and Christmas will be a time to make them more happy. Last year, we spent our Holidays in the Philippines and we had a blast.

Concerts in Australia

The last concert that my husband and I watched last year was at Michael Bubble's concert and we always have a blast watching him all the time. I can't recall anymore how many times we have watched his shows and it certainly shows that he is our favorite. I certainly hope that we can watch another concert of any foreign or local artist this November as a birthday treat to myself. I would not mind being deaf for hours because of the powerful jbl eon 515xt speakers that might be installed in the venues.

I'm not sure whom would I like to watch next but any 80's band or singers are just exciting.

Christmas at the Land Down Under

Oh wow, Christmas is fast approaching already! Last year my whole family celebrated our Holidays at my native land, Philippines and we have a lot of fun. Our clan had a reunion and it was so wonderful because we are all complete, of course except for my dad.

This year, we have no plans of going out of the country. I'm not sure yet when to get my holiday decors out from our storage room. I have tons of Christmas decors so it will take around a week to complete all the decorating. Oh yes, I have the habit of putting decors all over the house to make our house more lively and inviting for Christmas.

I found personalized christmas tree ornaments online while browsing for some new decors (yes, I'm looking for new ones!) and they all seemed so cute and will match the theme that I have in mind. We'll see what color theme I will use for our house this year.

Gift giving will always be a tradition so I have already started to buy some gifts for some friends but I need to find gifts for the kids soon as well.

Bonding with the Family

Lately, my family are having so much bonding times and they are priceless! Even the dinner out in a small resto in the neighborhood can be considered something to remember for a lifetime because not all families can eat out all together sharing laughs and good conversations coupled with a nice wine and kid meals. Apart from eating out, we watch movies, go shopping and watch documentaries in a big gobo projector that my hubby's cousin has.

Kids get to spend quality time with us playing, reading, watching sans the video and computer games. Although they are allowed to use gadgets, we encourage them to play outside and feel the sand and dirt in their hands. Some kids don't play anymore outside as they are so pre-occupied with their games on their gadgets.

Busy in the Land Down Under

Oh wow, I have neglected my blogs for a while. Been too  busy here lately.

Work, home and some other stuff keep me busy all the time. Wish I have lots of time to do more things that I can accomplish but hey I am not complaining for I am enjoying my life as a mom, wife, entrepreneur and care giver all at the same time. Not everyone can do that so I feel accomplished, proud and blessed with what I have right now. I know there are ups and downs in life and I am open arms to accept them for that will make me strong and even wiser.

I usually have my "me"time at night before I go to sleep and have done my chores for the day. I get to browse my fave online shops for cake stuff while I also enjoy online shopping and also seeing all the ddrum packages while surfing.

My kids are growing so fast too and wish they will have a great health and life.
