The little man has been recording sound effects in his computer when he gets the chance. He has used the different sound effects on his keyboard and is now looking for other instruments to use. He asked for his recorder last night and used that the whole time. He then wanted to know where his tambourine was and his old kiddie drums. It gets loud sometimes but I let it be because I do not want to curtail his creativity. If he could only see the musical instruments like dw drums at guitarcenter.com he probably will pester me into buying him one even if he knows I will not get it. He definitely has different things he likes to do and it may not seem normal to others but I have gotten used to his antics. As long as he does not do anything bad I will just let him do what he wants. Maybe it will be useful one day.

The little girl received a guitar for Christmas. She kept on playing with her brother's guitar so
we Santa decided to giver her a guitar for being a good girl for most of the year. And it is pink! Her favorite color, of course. I had to look hard and long for that guitar because we wanted something that will last abuses and mishandling. Let's face it, she is a kid and kids have this tendency to tear things up without thought for its value. We wanted to buy something that is durable but at the same time affordable. We were lucky to have found just that. There were a lot of options at guitar center music stores but we got her guitar closer to home. She loves it! We were glad about our choice. She plays with her guitar while watching Taylor Swift on Youtube and it is just so cute! Maybe we will have a musician in the family after all.

Pretty much like her brother at her age, the little girl is into music and musical instruments. She loves to "perform" in our living room. She plays a guitar while daddy holds a flashlight for spotlight, her brother plays the drum, while I am the audience. Nobody can give as convincing an adulation as a mother, you know? Lol! If she can, she would do it on a daily basis but her backups sometimes hide when they know she is going to put up a performance. Daddy wanted to buy her a keyboard for her Christmas present but I said no because one keyboard in the house is enough. Besides, if she really wants to she could use the little man's keyboard. But she is into guitar at the moment. I teased the husband to save for a musicians friend mpk, just in case she will not stay in the "wanting to play musical instrument phase". He said he will worry about it when it happens which I think is smart because per experience, this phase will soon be outgrown.

We should have been in Florida today. Or maybe Virginia Beach. We have talked about it. Weighed our options and planned about it. In the end, we are home. We cannot go anywhere. The husband is sick. The little girl is sick. Now I am afraid that the little man might be sick as well. This Christmas should have been spent on a holiday somewhere away from home. But it is not meant to be. So, here we are. I am not even sure if I will cook. I have ingredients for a sweet salad. We do have turkey and ham, uncooked. We still have to figure out whether or not to celebrate with food. I just hope that my people are gonna get better and soon. It's just not right to be sick on a holiday as special as Christmas. On the up side, the kids have presents under the tree, to be opened on Christmas day. We will try to be merry and hope that everybody gets better so we will not celebrate the coming new year with ill health.

Today, the husband and I bought a new Christmas tree. We have had one for years and although it is still in good shape, it is just too big and bulky to decorate anymore. I wanted a smaller tree. The husband wanted a real tree. We ended up buying a plastic 5 foot tree that was not just small but cheap as well. I know this will be our tree from now on. It was so easy to decorate. We did it in mere minutes. We did not plan on having a tree this year but the little girl wanted a tree and she has been so excited about Christmas we did not want her to get disappointed. And the effort and expense was worth it. Her face lit up when she saw the little tree in our living room. She thanked daddy and gave me a hug for getting the tree. They are in the living room right now admiring it. Have we had music and friends over, it would really feel like Christmas. We are glad that she is happy. At least we have one child who gets excited over the holidays. The little man, ever practical and smart, does not believe in Santa anymore. Until he gets what he wants from "Santa". :D
