Boys Should Play The Violin

While girls should play the piano , I think boys should play the violin.  So when I see boys playing the piano , I prefer seeing them play the violin.  I’m pretty sure that  violin prices  are a lot cheaper than buying a piano, so why does moms and dads put boys in piano classes ?    I asked my aunt about it and they said , they couldn’t find a violin teacher in our small town , therefore my cousins had to take up piano instead.

While girls looked exceptionally good playing the violin and can play both the violin and piano , I think boys looked better playing the violin than the piano.  What do you think?  I want to learn to play the violin just for fun if we can find a violin teacher in town.

Pro Audio System

As many of you may already know , we moved to our new store some 8 months ago , last summer and since we are an entertainment store , dad needs some pro audio system for the store.  He wants to hook it up to the gaming consoles and the tvs we have in store , to show our customers what they really look and sound like when they bring them home.  So we shop at http://guitarcenter.com/  where one can buy affordable or most professional audio system depending on what your budget is.   People mistake that the guitar center is all about guitars but it’s so not true , they sell more than guitars.  I love shopping online with dad as we get to pick and choose and read reviews together.

A Banjo On My Knee

Christmas parties with family are always fun because we always have lots of musicians in the family and so are our friends.  One of our family friend plays the banjo and he said I could learn from him if I wanted to .  He uses   Musician Friends banjo  and mummy was going to get me one too.  But I think learning the banjo may be harder than learning how to play the guitar , so for now , I’m going to stick to my piano and maybe when I’m older, I can learn how to play the banjo .

Birthday Present For Daddy 2015

00

Daddy birthday is in early December and even though I don’t have a lot of money saved up for his birthday, I think I can afford to get him this trigger guitar for his jamming sessions with his friends. I know that daddy needs a new one and this one looks really good and isn’t that expensive either. Mummy checked the reviews for this and she said everyone said good things about it. I’m very happy with my present for daddy , I know he is going to think I’m the best kid!

Closing Cottage For Winter

 IMG_3060

Mom & dad are getting ready to close the cottage for winter and as you can see, we do not have any  Royal Teak Furniture | Home and Patio Decor  for our outdoor furniture, we have to bring everything into the cottage for the winter.  So last week, we cleaned up the outdoor furniture , wipe them down from the summer use and all the dirt and grass as well as bugs that got stuck onto them and brought them all into the cottage for storage.

Mom had wanted to invest in teak furniture as they are supposed to be good for all kind of weather and you don’t have to worry about rain or the sun ray that might damage the outdoor furniture.  Mom said teak furniture are very expensive but you pay for what you get because teak furniture are made from the best kind of wood and they last up to 70 years.  When mom was a teenager, she said that only the very rich people can afford teak furniture and they have it at their pool as lounge furniture for suntanning and benches for picnics.  But now, one can get them as dining set and even Adirondacks like the ones we have above but made of teak wood.   The ones that we bought were handmade as well and they are made out of cedar wood but mom said she didn’t think that cedar wood are as good as teak.  Cedar wood is not rot resistant mom said but one can use water repellent like we did with ours but teak wood is much better.

So for next year, mom is going to invest in some Royal Teak Furniture, and mom said  the cottage will be mine when I grow up, I can always use them and so will mom’s grandchildren and great grandchildren.  I think this will be money wisely spent, like mom has taught me all my life.

Shopping At Frenchy’s

Daddy and I had been doing our bear shopping at the Frenchy’s.  I figured instead of spending tons of money at Build A Bear for my bear’s clothes, I should get some baby’s clothes at Frenchy’s, washed them and dress up my bears.  Now isn’t that smart of me and really good with my money.  Mom and Dad are so proud of me that I came up with this idea.

I looked for my bear’s clothes on my own as you can see here because mom just don’t know how to go through the bins.  I think she just doesn’t like it but Dad searched for my Halloween costume because I want to be a minion but we didn’t have any luck with it.

I managed to find 3 pieces of clothing for my bear and it’s not even $10 – I think I only paid $7 and mom made dad give me back $5  – hahahah! I have the best mom !   I loved Frenchy’s shopping and I’m sure dad is willing to drive me to Frenchy’s whenever I want.

Shopping For Guitar Strings

 We were up in the city to get daddy some  black nylon guitar strings  .  We can’t find any around town and usually daddy orders his online but since we were out shopping in the city and daddy had nothing to do , he went to see if he can find something similar for his guitar and music room.

Finding guitar strings are pretty easy if you order them online because the place that daddy orders them, they have just about everything and anything related to music.   But sometimes, when mummy is shopping and daddy has got nothing to do , he will go window shop for the prices and do comparison.

My Very Own Backpack For Vacation

Our summer vacation is just round the corner, we are going to Toronto for 10 days and then Disney World after.  Mom said that these  personalized kids backpacks  will be good for me since I need to have at least one carry on to put my bears and knick knacks that I might need for my few hours of flight on the plane.  Mom is going to put my name on one of the biggest one, that way , I won’t lose my carry on back and if I do lose it, I can easily identify it too.  I’m so looking forward to my vacation and also carrying my new personalized backpacks.

Shopkins Finally

006

So we finally got to Halifax and I finally got my shopkins ! woohoo !  I was ecstatic and bought a few things that I wanted badly.

007

This was in Showcase in Halifax and their prices are more expensive than Toys R Us but I couldn’t wait no more , so I bought some from here and some from Toys R Us but a day after we returned from Halifax, Sandy’s gift store had some too.  I bought some more from Sandy’s because I had a gift voucher from Sandy’s and we had asked Sandy’s to bring in some.  I hope they do sell all of them quick too.

008

More shopkins everywhere – for those in Yarmouth, don’t forget to get them at Sandy’s gift store on Main Street.

013

Here is the set that I got for myself.  I will show you those that I got from Sandy’s in another post.

Our New Car

032

Well, we finally bought a new car for dad, so that the old car can go into the garage and get an overhaul.  And once it’s done, mom can drive that car or this new one since it’s automatic or I can have it as soon as I can drive – daddy said.

We chose this car because it has a huge trunk and it has a sun roof as well.  This is a Lincoln and I loveeeee it !  Even thought it is not new , new – it’s still new to us and the best part of it all – daddy paid everything for the car, once again, we lived within our means.  If we can’t pay up for something , we don’t buy it as we don’t need it.
