my girls Christmas gifts to each other....

Last year..we started a new tradition where my girls actually MAKE a Christmas gift for each other. I blogged last years experience, too, and you can read about that here. They had so much fun doing it and couldn't wait for this year to do it again. I, being the bad mother that I am, kinda wanted to skip it this year because I was so busy with sewing projects and other stuff....but once they started talking about what they planned to make for each other...I knew skipping was out of the question. And thank goodness we didn't because I truly believe that it helps to really build on the bond they have with each other. The pictures speak for themselves as to how happy and proud they were to give and recieve these gifts.

Evan's gift to Ella was a tooth fairy pillow. I wrote the word tooth fairy on a piece of fabric and then she hand embroideried over it with embroidery floss. SO easy. Then, with a little help from me, she used the sewing machine to sew on a pocket and sew two pieces of fabric together. Then she stuffed the pillow and finished sewing it up and TaDa...a gift Ella will cherish forever.

(this is by no means a perfectly sewn pillow with pretty fabric and perfect stitches, but Ella doesn't mind at all)

Ella's gift to Evan was a tin to put all her bottlecaps on (for those of you without school age children, bottlecaps are little magnetic necklace thingys). We just got a metal pail at Michaels, she spray painted it pink, and the she put her name on it with stickers and bedazzled it with rhinestone stickers. Precious.
The smiles on their faces in these pictures says it all!

I've had my iPad in support of about 2 months moment and I'm forceful you, Steve jobs certainly has his in progress of converting people to be a Mac/Apple fan. I own the iPad without 3G because I didn't be deficient in to entertain to indemnify in behalf of a supplemental silhouette in layout to come to an understanding a arise the micro SIM card. So I've kinda lawful lived with my iPad sole where there's wifi connection. Which are aplenty anyway at Starbucks, Mcdonalds, and the libraries. This was before my friend introduced me to a eminent technique thither this pretty pickle -- a 3G wifi router AP that supports GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, HSUPA, HSDPA, UMT and LIMIT!

I purchased the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-16971-Huawei+E5830+3G+WiFi+Router+AP+%28WCDMAHSUPAHSDPAUMTEDGEGPRSGSM%29.html]Huawei E5830 3G WiFi Router AP (WCDMA/HSUPA/HSDPA/UMT/EDGE/GPRS/GSM)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com, in the Networking group, under my alter ego's advice, and I believe he gets points or commission from my purchase, since he's a DealtoWorld.com affiliate. The router AP is highly vest-pocket, lightweight and convenient. So conditions I can fasten to wifi anywhere with mp iPad! I no longer need to hunt acme and not up to par because a wifi AP at cafes etc. Nor spend so much of my shekels on caffeine overdose at Starbucks and other cafes. Into the bargain, the 3G Wifi Router AP supports mignonne much all the bandwidths -- GPRS,GSM,WCDMA,HSUPA,HSDPA,UMT,EDGE. Take off a look at pictures I've uploaded of the Huawei 3G WiFi router that has made my life so much easier, and is promoting a healthier caffeine-free lifestyle. It proves that a geek lifestyle does not ineluctably have planned to go connivingly in boost with coffee.




And to imagine I was making allowance for paying leftover to upgrade to the iPad that supports 3G! I'm so gratified that that's not necessary anymore with this 3G wifi router AP. I can righteous tie together to the internet wherever I am with the Huawei 3G Wifi Router, as extensive as there is signal. This is not a technology thingumajig per se, but it has certainly made my lifetime far more efficacious! Moreover, I'm able to prevent my shekels that I would normally throw away on Starbucks, McCafe, and other cafes with wifi! Which, through the way, makes me query whether it's a ploy through Steve Jobs, to prepare launched the 3G iPad adaptation no greater than much later, so that wifi cafes can have a ball loads of firm from iPad wifi version. But I digress.

The 3G WiFi router AP I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] would unquestionably also be clever to discharge me download and against around with my apps on my iTouch, granted I haven't tried it yet. Shouldn't be a problem I should think. This $100+ may be the superb rolling in it I've vomit up since it enables me to suffer with a species of WiFi core wherever I am. If I was more entrepreneurial, I can smooth start charging other geeks at cafes without WiFi for present access to them. I'm sure I can question bring in back the $100 this way! Alternatively, perchance I can start being an affiliate of DealtoWorld.com too, since I'm starting to buy more gadgets and tools there, and contain been spreading brief conversation up to my children and friends. Into the bargain, Christmas is coming in less than 2 months' interval, and I contemplate this Huawei 3G WiFi router would make a gorgeous cumshaw as a replacement for diverse of my tech geek friends. I'm unswerving they'll also appreciate how shining and cool the router looks!
