Many people out there would like to have very unique wedding bands for men and women. A couple of rings that’s distinct and special. While some couple would prefer traditional metal rings or designer rings like guy harvey jewelry from Reeds.com, others are more adventurous that they would go for alternative ones. Alternative wedding rings don’t necessarily pertain to metal rings crafted into a unique or bizarre shape. One type of unusual wedding ring is a wooden band similar to the rings above. These bands are special and unique in a sense that it reminds you of nature. They are fashioned from wood and are eco-friendly. Another option is a mix of wood and metal to create a balance of classic and modern fashion.

Asher was so sad when he got sick and had to miss their Talent Day last year. He caught a viral infection so he had to rest and recuperate. He was ordered to stay home so he wouldn’t spread the bug among his classmates as it’s highly contagious. I heard that the Talent Day was so much fun. Some kids shared their talents..a few sang, recited a poem while some danced. If Asher was just well, he was thinking to either showcase his talent in drawing Plants vs Zombies and dancing. He may not have those smooth dancing moves of a dancer but he certainly loves wiggling, jumping and whooping it up. Even just a short loud upbeat music from a new sE Electronics Pro Audio at musician's friend, he’d right away strut his stuff. Anyway, they’ll have other activities in the upcoming months that he could join. We’ll just make sure to keep him healthy and unsickly so he won’t miss them again.

A few months ago, I posted a picture on Facebook that made a lot of my Facebook contacts smiled. It’s undeniable that Ashley has gotten his Daddy’s looks. Absolutely no need for a paternity test to prove that. Whenever I post pictures of Ashley, friends would always comment that she is actually her Daddy only with a headband. So last week, I made Daddy Paul wear Ashley’s headband and took a picture of them having the same angle. She’s a photocopy of him, no doubg! Some has even given Ashley a new monicker..they’re calling her Paula. The girl version of Paul.
Speaking of Ashley, she’s starting to be greatly interested with music these days. She dances a lot whenever she hears lively music and even sings lullaby for her baby doll. I won’t mind buying a fender modern player for her in the future if she decides to become a musician. I’d be delighted if she develops interest in music actually.
Pre-school centers usually offer a career day for their students. This activity lets children know various jobs in the community and expose them to different workers. Some schools even invite real-life firemen (sans the custom fireplace mantels) and policemen for example to talk about what they do. What I love about this activity is that it doesn't just happen in one day. Most of the time it is integrated with community walks and field trips.
A friend shared how her kids' school took the students to a fire station so that a fireman can talk about safety equipment and how to prevent fires from happening. Then they went to a pizza restaurant where they were taught how to make pizzas. Now, that's fun and interactive learning.

I just posted about Ashley’s “look-a-like” and we’ve established from who she got her looks. Now let’s see who Asher looks like more.
No doubt and no DNA Testing is needed, this little boy is indeed our son. It's just hard though to determine whom Asher looks like more in this picture. Although, when I posted this ages ago to my Flickr gallery, online friends commented that Asher got more my features. But, I don't know, there are angles and features of him that I think are more of his Dad's.
Nevertheless and either way, I just love the result of our genes' combination because Asher is one handsome little boy. And I like how he looked so cool in this picture. He got the looks of a mischievous young man and the angst of a rocker (sans his m - box pro tools at guitar center). And yes, it’s a Throwback Thursday today in this blog.

One of the greatest advantages I see from having the digital age invade even the photography industry is that it is easier to take better pictures with a less expensive option. Parents in the 80's heavily invested on film camera and mores in printing pictures. These days, life can be more documented with smartphone cameras, digital cameras and digital SLRs. And you can have thousands of pictures in just one event without having the need to print them all. You can choose one from among the many first. You don't have to print it right away since sharing them has been easier - with e-mail and social media networks.
Storing pictures are easier too. You need a computer or an external hard drive. It is advisable you format hard drive with iolo.com first.
