ET and EJ

EJ was drawn to this ET  statue at Kennywood.  He find it fascinating.  He remember the movie we watched with ET,
 His fascination would not be complete with a document so here it is.  He tried to imitate  the smile of the ET but it doesn't look like it lol.
Going to amusement park is fun but tiring.  No matter how tiring it is though, the kids  does not want to leave,  They are full of energy when it comes to exploring things to do for fun!

Knowing when you Ovulate Key to Getting Pregnant

These set of photos were taken in Guam on May of 2006, our friends there gave us a farewell party before we flew to the mainland US.  I was 7 months old pregnant with our  first baby when I came here in the US.  I remember, hubby would come to the Philippines to visit when it is time for me to ovulate.  It took him a lot of  vacation back and forth from Guam to the Philippines but I finally got preganat after  over a year of trying.  It was hard for us since we were  miles apart but with God's grace and  perfect timing, it happened.
Most women want to get pregnant and become the proud mother of a child. But, every year millions of couples are having difficulty in getting pregnant due to several factors. In a situation like this, it can bring physical and emotional stress. At times, getting pregnant becomes a difficult task for both men and women. If you're one of those who are just really eager to get pregnant, or maybe you want your baby's birth to happen at a specific time, first thing to consider is knowing your cycles. 

According to , the biggest secret to getting pregnant faster is knowing when you ovulate or when you release an egg from your ovary. Think of the egg as a bull's-eye and the sperm as arrows. One of the arrows has to hit the bull's-eye in order for you to get pregnant. You can figure out when you ovulate using a few different methods, like ovulation predictor kits, a BBT chart, or ovulation calendar.

Thanksgiving 2014

After a couple of years of not participating to family gatherings, we decided to go this time.  My husband  did not want to go but I told him that we don't know how long  Dad will still be around and also for the children sake, we need to just deal with  whatever  made us stayed away. 
 We got to patch up things with the rest of the family.  It's been really hard for me that we did not communicate with  some of the family members because they are my only family here and I feel alone that we don't get to spend time with them.
 I asked these guys to smile and they made these faces lol.
 My sister-in-law Jill is doing  okay  now  despite the   chemo that she has been getting.
 Dad was a little drunk when we got there but he is doing mighty fine for his age.
 The siblings, Chris, Rick, and John.

  I am glad that  we did because the kids had so much fun.  I hope that this could be the start of a smooth relationship between the families again.

It was Not Meant for Us

One of the houses in our neighborhood was put up for sale.  I asked my husband if we could look at it as I like the  look of it from the outside.  MY husband didn't like how the  house was designed but we went anyway.  Neighbors said that this was built by a priest and it  was pretty solid inside.
This is a four bedroom house with three  full baths which impressed my husband a lot.  Although the rooms are smaller but it would have accommodated the need of our growing family plus it is in our neighborhood so  transition would have been a lot easier.
Hubby also liked the fact that it has a double car garage which our current house lacks.  
The  downsides of this house was  the yard and the smaller  kitchen and  living room.  There is no yard at all which would have been so difficult because we have pets.  Nevertheless, we made an offer  and  prayed that it if it meant for us, we will get it but if not, our offer will be turned down.
Our bid lost to a higher bidder  which hubby and I thought that the house is not really meant for us.
 The kids did not really want to put the dogs for adoption.  I  I am kind of relieved that our offer did not  go through because  I would surely miss gardening.  I won't have a space there to put my flower and vegetables.
 Our pets are a big part of the family so  it is  also a deciding factor whenever we are looking for a house.  It would be nice to have a bigger house with bedrooms that would accommodate each of us.
For now, we are planning to just  expand our house.  Put some money to it and fix it sop that the kids will have their own room.
