Weekend Activities

To keep your children  from doing ornery things, give them something  to work on. My husband had a  lot of   homework this weekend so we couldn't go  anywhere.  We bought a cupcake  mix and made it on Saturday morning.  After we got done with the cupcake project, I gave my children  some homework.
Mr. Burrito work on his  Kindergarten  book while Ms. Burrito  continue to write her short stories.
I hope you guys had a great weekend just like we did!

Poppin Movie Snacks

Oone of the gifts that Mr. Burrito got during his birthday was a set of "Poppin Movie Snacks" playdoh.  Both of my Burritos love  playing with playdoh so it is always a sold out.
During our breaktime with  home lessons, Mr. Burrito's favorite  thing to do is  this.  I preferred activity like tyhis more than watching TV.  It  brings out their creativity.
When we were done, he gave me some snacks too.

Happy 5th Birthday EJ!

Oh boy, time flies fast really. My son just turned five years old today (1/15) and he doesn't want to becalled baby anymore wahhh. My little man is growing up and he is slowly slipping from Mommy's  hands.  A special thanks to my SIL Chris for making a beautiful and yummy cake!
We had a  small get together yesterday attended by close friends and family.  My husband  drove to my FIL's home so he could attend Mr. Burrito's party yesterday.  He doesn't drive when it's  late  because of his vision.    
Another year  is another blessing for us with my FIL still around.  He will turn 90 in a few months and I am so glad that  my  children can still enjoy his company!  We love you Dad!
Thanks everyone for coming and for the presents.  More pics coming up later.

Live, Laugh, and Love

Live healthier, laugh more often, and love the people who cares about you, that's our New Year's Goal.
The photos were taken after we  attended the  evening  mass during Christmas  eve.  The kids were in the mood for some grooves and  wanted to entertain Daddy!
While we are waiting for the new year, we are munching on the veggies I cut up, a healthy way to   welcome the  year of the Dragon.
Best wishes  to all of us  for the year of the Dragon!

Youngest Sister

Of all my siblings, my youngest sister  is the only one with a different letter as a start for a given name. My parents picked the first letter of my father's name which is R,  so all of us 8,  have names that starts with letter R. When my mother got pregnant at 40, I suggested to break the tradition and  I suggested  a different name.    It's  an out of this world name and you probably never  heard of it before but it's unique and no one has it but her lol.  Her name is Zilreen Mae.
Hubby and I are trying our best to support her  finances in school.  She is now on her Junior year of her Elementary Education course.  She is working as student assistant in school.  She was first assigned at Elementary department but now transferred to the President's Office in the college department.  I wish you all the best my dearest sis.

Traveling With Kids, the Easy Way

Traveling with kids is a challenge but if you  are equipped with things that they can do during the travel, it's alright.  We bought our daughter  one of the kids luggage when we were still overseas so whenever we travel, I use it to put  their stuff like crayons,  drawing book, and other stuff.  Above is a photo of our son carrying the kid's luggage when we went to Disney World last year.

After the Mass on Christmas Eve

We were not able to attend the get together at my FIL's home on Christmas Eve because of the  mass but we visited him later that night.  The kids were delighted for the gifts that were waiting for them at Dad's.
Thanks  Titas for the  gifts!  My NIL Jen  gave the kids this Nok Hockey set and Ms. Burrito seemed addicted to it already.  Thanks Chris, Gail, Jen and Jim, Lee's family, Michelle, and Dad for the  gifts!

On Christmas Day, we brought the bike that my son got from "Santa" and both of the Burritos rode it in front of my FIL's house. Ms. Burrito wished that she could have ask for a bike rather than green machine. We did bought her a bike after Christmas but it was broken so we returned it to the store.
The last couple of days   was very cold but today, we are in 40s so it is  a little better. Link your favorite color through Color Connection every Friday at Ms. Burrito's blog.
