Jacob at school....

Lunch time at school after their Halloween activities today where they have the chance to wear their costumes for a short time. They were having fish fillet burger, green beans, peach and milk for lunch and the foods were very good! I am glad to be able to be there to help out with activities; they were dismissed early today because of Halloween celebration :-)

Teaching Dragon to Spell SuperZ 2

Dragon Naturally Speaking is a software created by a genius man named Brett Bumeter. The software would be a great help with the computer users especially to a blogger like me. It will make typing easier and better without using hands. You can Type 150 Words per minute for $99! by just talking. Isn’t it amazing? If you want to learn more about this new technology, watch the video above and then go to the website at www.softduit.com

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Standard

Press Release:

The video above was created by a blogger that goes by the name, SuperZ. I couldn't write that name before using Dragon NaturallySpeaking until I trained Dragon NaturallySpeaking to recognize the name SuperZ.

I mention that because I'm using Dragon NaturallySpeaking right now to write this article (notice Dragon new when I said the words right now that I meant the word right and not the word to write).

I've been writing articles and reviews about Dragon NaturallySpeaking for close to two years. I've had a lot of experience with the software, and I wanted to reach out to other bloggers and see what they thought of the software.

SuperZ tried out the software and as you can see from his own video, the results that he's getting after having used the software for just a week are pretty amazing. His computer is keeping up with just about every word that he says, and typing those words out for him in text.

Well frankly that's exactly what Dragon NaturallySpeaking is supposed to do these days and it lives up to its claim of achieving 99% accuracy and I've clocked it typing faster than its claims of 150 words per minute.

That's right you can type 150 words a minute with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. You do have to spend a little time editing from time to time, but you type so fast that editing doesn't take that long. You get the typing done faster and the editing is a breeze because you only have to look at the way that you phrased words. Dragon NaturallySpeaking almost never makes a spelling mistake. It types out the entire word based on the vocabulary that has stored in the machine. So it really can't misspell a word it's pulling the word straight out of a dictionary.

The only exception might be the case when you run into a name like SuperZ, which is not in your dictionary yet. When you run across a name like that, all you have to do is add it into your dictionary and train the software to recognize that new word or name. It just takes a second and after that you'll be able to say SuperZ all you like and Dragon NaturallySpeaking will know exactly what you are talking about.

Sincerely,

Brett Bumeter

Softduit Media www.softduit.com

PS this article includes about 381 words that I wrote with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10. It took me about 4 minutes to write and 4 minutes to edit this article. The writing time included the short amount of time it took to train dragon to recognize the name SuperZ. Editing took 4 minutes because I’ve been working all night and I’m not reading too fast!

Those were the days....

This picture reminds me of my grade school days. I have a best friend named Julie; she and her family were very nice to me even though they were wealthy. She and I often talked a lot and also played a lot. I was often invited to their house whenever there is an occasion especially her birthday. I felt sad when we graduated from elementary school because even though we went to the same school, but we went to separate classes. We are still friends, but not that close as we used to back when we were young.

Warning in the Kitchen!

A friend of mine sent me this email and I was alarmed after reading it. I better make sure that I've checked my pancake mix before serving it with my family. Don't want the same thing happened with members of my family. I also think that expiration date will aslo be checked in all the boxed, canned, bottled and all sort of packages foods to ensure safety and health of our family.

Please read on:
A student at HBHS had pancakes this week and it almost became fatal. HisMom (registered nurse) made him pancakes, dropped him off at school and headed to play tennis. She never takes her cell phone on the court but did this time and her son called to say he was having trouble breathing. She told him to go to the nurse immediately and proceeded to call schooland alert the nurse. The nurse called the paramedics and they were therein 3 minutes and worked on the boy all the way to the hospital. He cameso close to dying. Evidently this is more common then I ever knew. Checkthe expiration dates on packages like pancakes and cake mixes that have yeast which over time develop spores.

WARNING ABOUT Pancake Mix (and other boxed mixes) (maybe you already know this, I DID NOT !!) Talk about frightening. ... Throw away ALL OUTDATED pancake mix you have in your home, PLEASE! Ifyou don't believe me, read this article and then follow the 'Link' below to SNOPES. Sorry to be the Grim Reaper of bad news, but I would rather have you ALIVE, besides a $2.00 box of pancake mix is NOT worth your life.

P. S. You might want to tell this to your children, grandchildren,nephews, nieces and anyone else who keeps pancake mix in the cupboard.

WARNING - READ ON. AND CHECK SNOPES TOO. http://www.snopes.com/medical/toxins/pancake.asp

Sneaky Foods That Can Make You Fat

Some foods that seem healthy can be just as fattening as their obviously indulgent counterparts. Here are six that may be sneaking up on your waistline.

Perhaps you've tried to cut calories by replacing regular soft drinks with diet sodas or by switching from subs to salads, but you haven't noticed any weight loss. You might be surprised by how quickly sneaky extras, such as lattes loaded with whip cream and bleu cheese salad dressing, can add up.

1. Diet drinks. Artificial sweeteners may cause you to overeat by making it harder for your body to naturally count calories and disrupting its ability to gauge the relationship between food intake and weight, according to researchers at Purdue University. Try drinking water instead.

2. Salads. A garden salad with vinegar and oil dressing has only 93 calories and 5 grams of fat, but a chicken Caesar salad from Chili's has 1,010 calories and 76 grams of fat more fat in one seemingly healthy salad than the average woman should have in a day. Choose vinaigrette dressings over creamy dressings, like Ranch or bleu cheese.
3. Natural snacks. Chips and munchies labeled natural may not be as wholesome as they appear. For example, a single serving of Multigrain Tostitos has more calories than Tostitos restaurant-style chips and has more sugar (1 gram) than any of its Four Wholesome Grains,' charges the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Light chips are usually healthier but only if you can eat just one serving, which averages 11 chips.
4. Cocktails or beer. What do you drink when you head out for happy hour? If you treat yourself to an apple martini, which is loaded with 235 calories, prepare to jog an extra half an hour to burn off those calories. Mixing apple-flavored vodka with soda water gives you similar drink for less than half the calories.
5. Coffee. Your daily coffee break could add up. A 16-ounce grande Caffè Vanilla Frappuccino from Starbucks contains 430 calories, more than most cheeseburgers.
For starters, get rid of the whipped cream; it'll save you more than 100 calories. Or switch to a more basic coffee, such as café au lait, which contains only 110 calories.
6. Hidden sugar. Yogurt and granola are healthy choices, but watch out for added sugar. Some types of granola bars and yogurt cups are loaded with sugar or candy pieces, detracting from their nutritional value. Look carefully at what's been added.

So sad...

Am I weird or what? Every time I see dead animals dead in the middle of the road while driving, I can not help but wish that animals would be smart enough not to cross the street or road when there is car coming; and that would save them from being killed. I am not really a fan of animals, but seeing them dead makes me feel sad. Yesterday on the way come from church, we saw at least like 3-4 animals lying on the road dead. So sad, really sad!

Jacob can write his name now!

I have been waiting for my son to learn to write his name, at least his first name. I though it would take long. I was kind of getting impatient teaching him to write it lately, but out of nowhere while I was in front of the computer, he asked for a pen and paper and said he wanted to write his name by himself; and so I gave him what he needs. I was surprised when he showed me the paper with his name written on it! I grabbed my son and hugged him telling him that I am so proud of him! He was happy and gave me a kiss.

Black Friday Shopping

I like saving money and I am a frugal person aslo. Even’ though I love to shop, I just don’t go to the mall or store and shop; I shop for a bargain or clearance sale to save. I also get up early in the morning just to shop after Thanksgiving Day. My husband thinks that I am crazy! Getting up early is not a man thing that is why. I don’t care what he says, I still go for best buy sale. While browsing the internet, I came across iblackfriday.com, where you can shop online without getting up early on black Friday to stand in the line. They let you build the lists of items you want to buy, too. They let customers in advance to view the 2008 ads weeks in advance. And also show you how you can buy these items online on Thanksgiving morning instead of having to stand in line on Black Friday. This is great! I can shop and save without leaving early.

I will definitely go to Best Buy to shop for a gift for my husband. This is going to be a surprise for him; they have a great deal on Blu-ray which is what he wants for Christmas. On top of that they also have huge selections of electronic gadget, HDTV, laptops and more. Amazing! Plus, BestBuy also has weekly great deals on electronics and promotions like free shipping on selected items. Holiday gifts shopping is never been easier at iblackfriday.com; you should try shopping there.

What is Love?

I love the meaning of love here, so I decided to post it here. I totally agree with everything stated here about LOVE. For me, they are so TRUE! Do you agree?

"Love is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day."

"To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven."
"A love song is just a caress set to music."
"Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit."
"Love is like a violin. The music may stop now and then, but the strings remain forever."
"Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence."
"In the final analysis, love is the only reflection of man's worth."
"Love doesn't make the world go round, love is what makes the ride worthwhile."


"To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving.

Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer.To be happy is to love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down."

Legend of the Seeker


I love watching television shows especially epic fantasy series like “Xena” and “Hercules.” In fact I was a fan of them. I have found the trailer of the "Legend of the Seeker” at http://www.comingsoon.net/ and it was very well done movie. I feel like I was watching the trailer of The Lord of the Ring movie. It was amazing! A show like this one is a perfect for general viewers esp. when it is a combination of fantasy, adventure, magic, mystery and romance. I especially like the main character role of the movie, which by the way did a very good job in portraying his role. He was perfect for it. I will definitely watch and follow the show every week after the two- hour special event the weekend of November. “Legend of The Seeker” is from the same studio networks of the hit network “Lost” and “Grey’s Anatomy” the ABC Studios. For more information about this show visit http://www.legendoftheseeker.com/ and you can also find the area where you can watch the making of a Legend local showtimes which is hosted by "Xena" herself, Lucy Lawless.

6 Dirtiest Foods in America

Take heed—these common foods could ruin your dinner by making you sick.

If you've ever been struck with diarrhea, vomiting, fever, or abdominal cramps after dining out (or in), chances are that you were just one of the millions of "dirty food" victims that this country sees every year.
Foodborne illness, or food poisoning, is the result of consuming food or beverages contaminated with parasites, viruses, or bacteria. Most of these infections are undiagnosed and unreported, although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 76 million cases of foodborne disease occur in the United States each year. In fact, it may result in as many as 5,000 deaths each year.
Although food poisoning is usually unexpected, it's no secret that some food items are definitely dirtier than others. Here, a look at some of the dirtiest foods that are most likely to make you sick, according to the CDC.
1. Raw Oysters.
These mollusks have been said to have aphrodisiacal properties, but that's assuming that they don't make you sick first. Large outbreaks of the norovirus (one of several viruses responsible for the stomach flu) have been linked to raw oysters, so you might want to think twice before you slurp.
2. Ground Beef.
In everything from hamburgers to tacos to chili, the average American consumes over 66 pounds of ground beef each year. Unfortunately, although any food of animal origin can harbor bacteria, when meat is ground, it's even more exposed, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Listeria, salmonella, E. coli, and staph, which are invisible to the eyes and nose, are just a few of the harmful bacteria that could be lurking in your meat.
3. Alfalfa Sprouts.
If you're on of the many Americans who piles on the sprouts at the salad bar, you may also be getting a heaping pile of food poisoning. Oregon and Washington recently recalled a large amount of alfalfa sprouts after the USDA confirmed that they were likely linked to 13 cases of salmonella typhimirium infection-at least two individuals were hospitalized.
4. Milk.
It does a body good-but if it hasn't been pasteurized (put through a process that kills harmful bacteria through heating), it could be dangerous. Milk and milk products contain a wealth of nutrients, but according to the CDC, they can also contain salmonella, E. coli, and listeria. More than 800 people in the United States have gotten sick from drinking raw milk or eating cheese made from raw milk in the past 10 years.
5. Raw Eggs.
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods on earth, but if your mother ever yelled at you for trying to eat the leftover cookie dough or cake batter, she had good reason. Raw or even undercooked eggs can carry dangerous salmonella bacteria, one of the most common causes of food poisoning, so the Hollandaise sauce or Caesar salad dressing might not be the wisest decision.
6. Poultry.
If you're weary of beef but not quite ready to jump on the vegetarian bandwagon, chicken is likely your protein of choice. And why not? It's simple to prepare and easily integrated into a healthy diet. But of course it might be too good to be true-a study published in the December 2001 issue of the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology found that nearly 40 percent of the chicken samples taken yielded E. coli.

He Died for Us....

Take a look at this picture and see how much you Jesus suffered for us and our sins. He died for us that we might live again with God, the Father. He was a perfect example for us to emulate. I don't know personally how will I pay HIM for all He did to me; He is my Savior, Lord, Redeemer and Advocate to Father in Heaven. I love HIM so much! This also reminds me and the responsibility placed before me to share the gospel, even the "Plan of Salvation" to all mankind.

Perfectly Made Suits for You!

Storefront_logo

When my husband and I got married, my brother in-law was wearing a very nice suit. We were surprised because he was not used of wearing suit. He told us that his wife made him wear it because it was his brother’s wedding and she bought it for that occasion. Anyway, He told us that it was made by a tailor in town near where they live. It was a custom made that is why he wore it, and was the only one in their closet that fits perfectly on him. Made to measure suits are way much better than those you can find at the retail store in the shopping mall. The great thing about it is that custom suit is made according to the style you want, fit perfectly, and the kind of fabric you have chosen in their selections. My husband and I like the three buttons jacket style and the flat front pants. My Suit.com has been in business worldwide for over 40 years and still leading. You can rely on them when it comes to mens’ suit because they only sell made-to-measure suits at close to off-the-rack prices. If you want to buy a suit that fits perfectly for you, go to mysuit.com and make an appointment for measurements in their store and have your tailor made suit in just two weeks. Isn't it great?

In love, you express your emotions through actions.
Taking care of someone is how you love them. And you do it well!

At work, you do well in a structured environment. You complete tasks well and on time.
You would make a good interior designer, chef, or child psychologist.

How you see yourself: Competent, dependable, and detail oriented

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, dominant, and stuck in a rut

Believe it or not this my exact personality descriptions. I like it. Some people find me boring because of my personality. But I don't care what they think of me; as long as I am happy with what I do and that I am doing it right that is all I care about. By the way, I have no idea what ISFJ is. Anybody can tell me the meaning of it? Thanks!

Missing my friends...

This picture reminds me of my life in the Philippines when I was still single. My friends and I used to hang out together doing nothing, but chat, eat, watch T.V. and just watch the setting of the sun. I sure miss those days. It is different now, for one thing I am far away from them now and we are all married and have kids now, so time is very limited when we meet when visiting my family. I hope that someday, we would spend more time someday with our respective families. It would be Great! Now I am thinking about organizing one when we go visit my family again.

Here's how to make fresh Pumkin Pie...

~The best pumkin for this is a pie pumpkin (called sugar pumpkins in some regions).
~The best way to cook it is to roast it, like you would a butternut squash.
~So cut it into halves or quarters (depending on its size), scoop out the seeds (save those for toast if you'd like), and put the pieces in a roasting pan with about half a cup of water, and roast it in a medium-hot oven till it's really tender.
~Scoop it out of the skin with a spoon once it's cool enough to handle, then puree it in a food processor or blender to make sure all the stringy bits are gone.
~One pumpkin should give you about two cups of puree, which you can then season and use for pie, ravioli, risotto, or simply as a side dish.

I just thought of sharing this if anyone of you wants to use fresh pumpkin for your pie. It is very easy and the pie would be very delicious; my son loves it fresh.

One for the Porch, One for the Plate!

When you grab a pumpkin for your fall porch this year, grab one for your plate, too.

Why? Two really good reasons: Pumpkin makes an incredibly rich and flavorful base for all sorts of soups, stews, and desserts. And it’s absolutely packed with blood-pressure-friendly nutrients.

Halloween Help for Your HeartPumpkin flesh is crammed full of phenols -- a type of health-promoting antioxidant that’s found in many plant-based foods. But pumpkin phenols may have particularly body-kind qualities. In cell studies, phenols from pumpkin flesh put a damper on the same enzyme that some blood pressure drugs target to reduce vascular tension. In other words, the phenols in pumpkin may help keep blood vessels relaxed, which means better blood pressure and better heart health.

Save the SeedsWhen you scoop out your pumpkin, save the seeds so you can roast them. Pumpkin seeds are rich in alpha-linolenic acid -- a healthy fat that also helps protect blood vessels. No time to cook fresh pumpkin? No problem. Use canned pureed pumpkin. It’s precooked, tastes great, and is just as good for you.

BTW, cooking pumpkin seems to enhance its phenolic properties.

I love Pumpkin seeds and so as hubby and Jacob. We also love Pumpkin Pie; my son is addicted with Pumkin Pie as long it is cooked the old- fashioned way. I like it with cream chesse.

I Love Grilled Foods

My family loves to eat, and so I cook a lot, that is one of my passions. I especially love to eat a healthy food that is why I only served healthy foods for them esp. my hubby who is trying to lose weight. In the country where I was born, raised and came from we hardly eat foods that have quite a bit of oil; and I am used to eating foods that are barbequed, boil, baked and steamed. Barbeque is one I often do with meat and fish. A barbeque grills is very useful to me; it makes it easier to barbeque unlike when I was growing up, we only use the old fashioned way , like when you go camping. Anyway, here is one of my favorite recipes.

Greek Lamb Barbeque

1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons dried oregano
4 teaspoons olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound lean lamb, trimmed of fat and cut into 1 inch cubes
16 cherry tomatoes
1 large green pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large onion, cut into 1-inch wedges

DIRECTIONS:
1. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, oregano, oil and garlic. Set aside 1/4 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate. Pour the remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the lamb. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
2. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread lamb, tomatoes, green pepper and onion. Grill kabobs, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. Baste with reserved marinade. Grill 8-10 minutes longer or until meat reaches desired doneness, turning and basting frequently.

If you love to grill and need barbeque grill and stuff associated with griling, ibuybarbeques.com is the best place for you to buy them. Go check them out!

Nice dinner...

Last night I made a Filipino dish called “Caldereta" (will post picture later). It was my own version for the reason that I did a little twist on it by adding chick peas (garbanzo beans), Lima beans and a little bit of banana ketchup (hot and spicy), pimento and a pinch of red pepper flakes. It was so good that hubby and I have to run to the kitchen for the left over :-). Our son loves it, too especially the beans. I am glad that Jake loves Filipino foods and veggies. He eats whatever I prepared now, than before; doesn’t need to make special meal for him at mealtime.

Are you looking for a missing person?

Some people like I do have lost touch of their friends or relatives and don’t have any idea how to contact them again. I have tried the best I could but still couldn’t find my long time friend whom the last time I knew was living in Utah. Now, they’ve moved because of his job and no idea where he and his family now live. People Finder has helped me find them. I just typed the name of my friend on the search box and instantly find his whereabouts even their new telephone numbers. The peoplelocatorservices.com are the best resources on missing people because they and have huge database of public records where we can find missing person anywhere in the U.S.

Jake wants to have pet....

He wanted to play with our neighbor's dog, but the dog couldn't because he was tied up. I am glad that Jacob stated to like animals and some bugs now. Before he wouldn't go near them; once he sees any animals walking or bugs creeping near him, he would just cling on my leg afraid he might be attack by dog or cat. He loves to go to the Zoo 'though and feed some animals like goat. He wants to have cat or dog, but I don't think he is ready for any responsibility associated with having pets, so I just pass that on for a while till he is old enough to take care of them.

Finding Unknown Phone Numbers

Almost everyday, I get calls from an unknown phone and cell phone numbers who never leave a message or just hung up when I try to answer it. It is very annoying especially when I am in the middle of something very important. Good thing there is this National Phone Registry where I can find unlisted phone numbers and cell phone number information who are unlisted on the data base. They have powerful tools that can help us with finding prank calls and their service is proven very effective and easy to use. Next time you received a prank call or unknown phone or cell phone numbers, try using nationalphoneregistry.net.

An Apple a Day

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Apple in the morning - doctor's warning.
Roast apple at night - starves the doctor outright.
Eat an apple going to bed - knock the doctor on the head.
Three each day, seven days a week - ruddy apple, ruddy cheek.

This poem by an unknown writer highlights the health benefits of eating apples. Apple season is here and now's the time to enjoy juicy, delicious, nutritious, and very portable apples.

Apples are low in calories and high in fiber, especially soluble fiber, which has been shown to lower blood cholesterol levels. As the poem reveals, apples can be eaten raw or cooked.
Apple juice and apple cider are widely popular and mulled cider is a fall treat!
Apples belong to the rose family and while there are about 2,500 varieties grown in the U.S., 8 varieties account for about 80% of the apples produced in the U.S.
Apples can be grown almost anywhere in the U.S. but most are grown in the northern states. Buy local varieties, if possible, for maximum flavor.

What are your favorite varieties and what's your favorite way to eat apples?

I love the Gala Apples and I can eat it anyway you serve it. My son on the other hand loves the apple sauce with cinnamon and also when I peel it, slice and sprinkle a litle bit of white sugar and cinnamon. My hubby is the same with me. The poem itself tells us the benefit of eating apples 3x a day, and it will indeed keeps the doctor away!

Unique Halloween Gifts

Every year I look forward to celebrating Christmas; and in the country where I grew up Christmas decorating starts on the month of September; it is really a big celebration, lots of decoration, gifts and foods, not to mention long celebration that ends on the 6th of January. Now that I live here in America, Halloween is the next one most celebrated holiday next to Christmas. I do a lot of decorating. I also send gifts to my loved one here esp. my mother in-law with a halloween gift and she likes that especially fresh flowers. I always make sure that she gets gifts I bought from 1-800-flowers.com. They have flowers and cookies for all occasion. Who says you can not send gifts on Halloween? It's not true! Halloween is not only for kids but also for adults. So why don't you spread your love or cheer one up by sending them gifts this Halloween.

Siesta Key Rental, Great and Affordable

My Family and I together with my Aunt from California when to Florida four months ago to visit our relatives there who lives two hours away from the beach. We planned to go to the beach, but things didn’t go as planned. We kind of little bit disappointed. So my family and I decided to go back there next year for our annual summer family vacation. We especially want to go to Disney World for my son’s 5th Birthday. I am now saving for it. As we all know, it’s kind of expensive going to Sunshine State. Hotel rent is very expensive on top of foods, gas and ticket to go to Disneyland.

Vacation Rentals by Owner or VRBO.com has thousands of Florida vacation rental homes, condos and villas in and around Disney/Orlando area. The Florida Keys, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Navarre Beach and many more. They have something for everyone! They also have rental options which fraction of typical hotel costs, some money will be spent for theme parks, shopping, snorkeling, parasailing, jet skiing and more.

Aside from saving money from vacation rentals, you can also get extra room if you need to for family members or friends. You cannot find the amenities they offer in any other rentals around like private pools, kitchen that are fully-stocked and game rooms I really like
Siesta Key rental; because they have Private Homes which we like. Sieta Village Vacation rentals have a Deluxe Townhouse with large private poll/sauna and private yard across the beach; it has 3 bedrooms, sleeps 6 persons and 2 bathrooms; and it only costs $1500-2000 /week. Or Sandy Cove Vacation rentals with 1bedroom and 1bath; sleeps 2-4 person for only $1000-$2500 a month. Aren't they affordable?

If you want to experience the great benefits of staying in a vacation rental like
Siesta Key rental and reserve the rental home that fit your needs.

Excited for Halloween...

Finally bought my son his costume for Halloween; and he loves it! He wanted Spider Man, but that darn Wal-mart doesn’t have the size that fits him. So, I bought the Batman instead, of course with his approval. Oh, boy! He couldn't wait till it's Halloween; he wears it everyday after school. Right now, he is wearing it and would like to sleep with the costume on. Funny, but cute I think :-) Anyway, hubby and I still thinking to whether we will buy costume for us :-).
