Yesterday was spent at home with three sick children so a lunchbox was out of the day plan.

Today being a day for FilipinoMomBlog.com’s Tuesday LunchBox Meme, I thought about featuring the food I prepared for the Field Trip we had at the La Mesa Eco Park last November.

Over at the FilipinoMomBlog.com, we are having a Fab Holiday Finds meme that I am sure those who are anticipating Christmas will enjoy writing posts about and sharing their finds.

Finds can range from the latest in electronic gadgets, to the most delicious ham ever tasted, cookies and cakes to die for, bargain Christmas trees and decors and even Persimmon trees for New Year luck, the tastiest lechon to the coolest places to where one can have these things and more. What else did I miss?

I have decided to make personalized Christmas gift tags. It was supposed to be done with the kids but they had other things in mind so I ended up starting the gift tags myself.

I enjoyed doing these even if when I came to, I realized that spending¬† time doing these as well as spending MORE than I intended to, I could have said I shouldn’t have done that yet I know I made the right choice.

Here is a closeup/link of one of the personalized Christmas gift tags while below is a photo of some of the personalized Christmas gift tags I made:
