Partners in Crime . then and now.

The first photo was taken before we went to Korea, they both want to climb on this corner piece but they got reprimanded hehehe. The second photo was when we were in Korea, they both love to color.
The theme this week at Mommy Moments is Before and After. I actually had a little bit of hard time choosing which I should share hehehe. I came up with the partners in crime, then and now. Well, they certainly love each other, love to hug each other, love to torture/pick on each other, and sometimes love to do things together.  Now that they are growing up and has each own preferences, most of the time they  argue with each other wahhhh.

Rainy Days

Good morning everyone, how's your day going?   I just got done vacuuming the floor and now running the washing machine.  My tummy is grumbling hehehe so I have to eat something.  I made  my daughter and husband  some hamburger helper for their lunch and  I am going to eat what's left.  EJ wanted waffles so that was what he ate.  Sharing this picture that I took of him last Saturday at my FIL's back porch.  Just to make the rainy day brighter hehehe.  Have a nice day everyone!

Hair Styles

One of the things that me and my daughter disagree  sometimes is combing/brushing her hair. She is very sensitive that she always think, I am pulling her hair out whenever I brushed it. One time I asked her if she wants a short hair so I won't have to deal with crying every time I brush her hair and she said she want it long. She absolutely get that from me because when I was a kid, I always want my hair long and one time mama hire someone to cut my hair very short, I cried for days lol.  The only difference of me and Rye is that I don't ask my mother to comb it for me, I id it alone.
Anyhow, here are some hair styles that I always do to her hair.  Messy pig tails, braiding it, tie the entire hair into one, or just tie half of it.
I love it when my son's hair is short like this.
I always have a long hair ever since.  I only cut it short once as advised by the priests when I was in college.  They told me that I am so skinny with long hair and that it makes me look so mature.  But when I met hubs, he likes long hair so I grew it back lol.
Hubby love his hair like this but I love it when he cut it very short, very masculine ang dating hehehe.
I am off to bed now folks, thanks for visiting.  Will try to visit you back tomorrow.


Hello everyone, sorry if I wasn't able to visit your blogs today. We were a bit busy, right now, I am still trying to finish my laundry hehehe. Below are the photos of the kangaroos I took when we visited the zoo in Pittsburgh.
My daughter call them Kanga & Roo.
It was my first time  seeing kangaroos.  Watching them closely was fun!  Thank you so much for visiting and for commenting.  Tomorrow will be another busy day for us.

We Want...

The topic for this week at Couple's Corner is the things that we want for each other. With seven years of marriage, I can say that I have found the perfect match for me. Conflicts with our preferences arises sometimes but it is not major that we can't handle. Just petty thing s and that is what makes and gives our marriage a thrill.  If you would ask my husband, I think he would like me to be more intimate hahaha.  He also want me to  play more with the kids.  He is always the one playing with them whenever he is home but when he isn't of course I played with them too.  He also want me to be more "maalaga", I am not that type kasi ( I need to work on this).

If you will asks me, I just want him to stay as sweet, supportive, loving, faithful, and supportive as he is now. I hope that he won't change till death do us part.  Cheesy lol!

Progress Report

As I have mentioned on my previous post on my other blog, our daughter had a satisfactory rating in all fields so that was a big relief for me. I am actually very proud of her because even though she did not attend pre-school, she is doing pretty well.  She can now read  sentence with three to five words in it.
For the whole month of September, she  received green light.

Last week, the school  sent  a permission letter for a physical check up to each student.  I was bummed out when the result came because her BMI is only 15 and according to their standard, our daughter is underweight.  How could that be though?  Just a couple of months ago, she also had a complete physical check up from the doctor and the result say that she is healthy.  Hmmnnn.  Our daughter love veggies and fruits and that could be one factor why her body mass index is low.
The photo below was taken at our back patio, we were laying down on top of their sandbox and watching the sky.  Have a great week ahead everyone.

Happy Birthday!

My baby brother turned 20 years old a couple of days ago. I miss you Nick, Hope I am there and be with you guys.  May God bless you with good heath and good life all through out.  When I left home  five years ago, he was so small like a kid (photo below) but when I came back last year, he was so tall and  big (second photo).
Looking at this photo makes me miss my family, our place, ahhh am being nostlagic lol.
My mentor in blogging, Malou of The Journey is celebrating her special day today.  Thanks dearest for introducing me to this wonderful  world of blogland.  If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't know blogging  and won't meet good friends online.  I owe you this enjoyment bru!
Dena E of Dream Doodlers blog is also celebrating her birthday today.  Thanks Dena for always sharing us the  good news from the Bible.

Rain Storm

We had a pretty hard rain storm yesterday. We were still at my father-in-law's house when the heavy rain poured. The electric power was going on and off while the thunder and lightning are roaring. I've visited a blog today that shows a picture of the first snow fall, wow, that early? I believe it was in Wyoming.

Jump Shots

Hey there everyone, it's time to have fun with Mommy Moment's theme this week. Jump shot is very hard to catch especially if you have a slow camera like me lol. But if you have high reso and fast camera, you will get the perfect jump shot that you want. Here's our share.  Here's EJ jumping on the trampoline.
Here's me when we visited my husband's Aunt down in  New Milton West Virginia.  Hubby took this picture.
Here's Rylie's attempt.
Goodnight everyone, Lady Red is bugging me with her partner, dysmenorrhea wahh.

Cotton Balls in the Sky

I took these shots when we went to the Steubenville Mall last weekend.  The sky was covered with cotton ball-like clouds. For the past days, the weather here is  weird, one day it's rainy and then the next day, it's sunny.  One day it's cold and the next day it's warm.  No wonder people are getting  cold because of the sudden change in temperature.

Magic Towel

We went to the store last weekend and  EJ wanted something  He grabbed one pack of magic towel and thought that it's something that he can play with.  He and Ate had fun with it for a while when they started to soak it in the water lol..

Do today what you can do for Tomorrow

My mother taught me a very good lesson when I was growing up.  She always does things  in advance.  I remember asking her once, "why can't we just do it tomorrow?"  She told me that we should always try to do the things that we can do  for today instead of waiting for tomorrow.  I am like that when lazy bug is not with me lol.  With hubby, he is a work ethic man so I never had any problem of procrastination with him.  But all of us I guess have moments where we doesn't feel  like  doing anything.  Sometimes it is better to put off the things that we can do today  especially if we like we will screw things up.  


Good morning/evening everyone! How are you all doing? My son and I just finished eating our breakfast. Hubby and daughter are in school.

Lately, our daughter has this attitude whenever she gets home from school and hubby and I are getting worried about it. We talked to her yesterday and told her that if she doesn't quit doing that, we will have her take some time off from school. I am not sure if that's the right thing to say to her but it seems to work. Before she left this morning, I told her that there should be no more attitude when she comes home from school and she promised that she won't do it again.

I am torn about this because I feel like I am failing my job as a Mom in teaching my kids the right things. I don't want to think that her peers in school have some kind of influence to this attitude because I talked to the teacher and she said that Rylie is doing an excellent job in dealing with other kids. So I don't know where the problem lies. Is it from us? Your honest opinion is greatly appreciated!

Box Tops Education

Hello there everyone, how's your day today?  We had a rainy day today but the day just passed by so quickly.  We wnet to the courthouse so hubby could cast his vote and we visited Dad for a couple of hours.
Anyhow, you might be wondering about the photo above.  I am collecting box tops labels from  the boxes of cereals, cake mixes, brownies and other  stuff  that offers box tops for education.  My daughter schools participates to this so I am  supporting them.  If you guys want to  help out, you can cut out  BT labels and send it to me, as the box says "it pays to be passinate"  hehehe.  Need to go to bed now folks, lady in red is killing me wahhh..

The Bakers

Here's my SIL Chris and Rylie whipping up some dough to make cookies.  How I wish that I have their passion in baking cakes and cookies lol. Baking is not really my thing, it is always hubby who makes cookies and cake at home.


Would you freeze if you are swimming in the ocean and you see one of this going towards you?  I think the  fear would  drown me instantly lol.  Good thing, this  giant baby was in the aquarium when I saw him hehehe.  How about you?

Halloween Paraphernalia

My SIL brought some Halloween paraphernalia last weekend at my FIL's house.  We tried them on and we had so much fun.  Our little Gracie wasn't too fond about it, she cried a couple of times  with some of the displays like the big spider.    Here's the geek hehehe.

Teen Titan Costume for Halloween

We ordered our burritos  their Halloween costume online.  They love the Teen Titan show so  our daughter would be a Raven and son would be a Robin weeeeee.  EJ wasn't wearing the shoes on this photo.  I am now exhausted everyone, thanks for the visit.  Will try to bloghop tomorrow.  Good night!
