Can't Do Anything When He's Awake

It is truly irritating sometimes when there are so many chores to do around the house but can't do any of it because someone is preventing you from doing it. I am talking about my little one. When he's awake there's not a whole I can do around. He is now in the stage where he will get into everything, I mean literally everything! So I have to keep an eye on him at all times. 

And then when he'll finally go to sleep, he wouldn't stay asleep for a long period of time, probably about 30 minutes at the most. I'll be lucky if he'll go to sleep for an hour! I hope he'll go to sleep soon so I can start my chores, this day is almost gone and I sure would hate for it to be over without anything done!

Our Christmas Tree Is Up


It may be a little too early to have the Christmas tree up but everybody else is doing it. Heck, even the stores are already selling Christmas stuff before Halloween was even here. So I am just like everybody else who's excited for Christmas! LOL! Well actually I am doing this for my boys. Even if I didn't feel like getting the Christmas tree from our messy storage, I just had to d it for my boys. My oldest son always looks forward of having a Christmas tree. I guess it makes him excited everyday knowing that toy day is fast approaching. And my youngest son who just turned a year old a week ago hasn't really seen the Christmas tree because he was just over a month old when he celebrated his first Christmas. 

And I tell you what, after I got done decorating the tree and turned it on, his whole face lit up and that look of curiosity sparked and at the same time look so delighted of what he was seeing because he has never seen it before. That to me was just priceless! And another priceless moment was when my oldest son came home from spending the night at his nana and saw the Christmas tree all lit up and decorated. He told me how beautiful it looks and how beautiful the ornaments are! I was sure happy to hear those words knowing that he appreciated my work! I could not thank GOD enough for these two beautiful boys that he blessed me! They will always be my Christmas presents!

Thanksgiving Play!

My first grader's class had their first Thanksgiving play today at their school library. I am just so glad that I was there to witness it. Too bad I didn't bring my camera. I wasn't really sure if I was gonna stay to watch the play or not because I had a doctor's appointment too the next hour. But I am so glad that I got to watch it because they all so cute and adorable and I thought they did such an amazing job executing the first Thanksgiving day.

Anyway, I feel really bad that I didn't stay for the feast after the play. I feel really guilty to leave my son their but I was running really late on my appointment. I did explained to him why I couldn't stay and eat with him and he seemed like he understood me. But as I was leaving, I just had that heavy feeling and almost went back. I just hope he enjoyed their Thanksgiving feast!

Happy First Birthday To The Handsomest Little Navy!

My youngest son turned one year old at 10:19 this morning! So it has been a year ago since I have given birth to him. How time flies! I feel so lucky and for sure very grateful to our GREAT LORD ABOVE for giving me this wonderful moment and this chance to enjoy this day and hopefully more and more to come with beautiful and wonderful people in my life! I couldn't ask for anything better and I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world!

Anyhow, the birthday celebration went really well. The celebrant had so much fun although he didn't know what was going on. All he knows was that he was getting all the attention and we were singing, he was opening presents, got to mashed and tasted some cake which were not an everyday occurrence, all he knows that it was so much fun! I am truly grateful that all that hard work that I did these past few days to make his 1st birthday a very memorable one was a success although it wasn't your typical birthday party! The main thing is my son enjoyed every minute of it!

Haven't Done Anything!!

I am just so frustrated right now! The day is almost over, my first grader will be here in less than an hour and I haven't done hardly anything! Been so busy these past few days running errands for my son's first birthday tomorrow and today is my only chance of cleaning the house! I had a full intention last night that after my first born leaves for school to start cleaning right away because there is a lot that needs to be cleaned but what did I do? Went back to bed instead! I don't know what's up but I felt so tired this morning that I just collapsed on the couch right after my oldest son left and of course the little was fighting sleep and didn't want to go back to sleep! 

Right now, I am trying so hard to put him to sleep so I can start again. The only thing that I got to do was changed the curtains and washed dishes and there is still tons that needs to be done! I am not so optimistic right now that I'll be able to finish these chores before tomorrow! I guess this feeling of exhaustion is the result of the past days of being so busy running errands. Oh gosh, I hope my little one will take his nap soon!

"Criminal Minds" Is Now One Of My Shows


When I find a tv show that is really interesting I tend to get addicted to it easily. Just like the show "Criminal Minds" on CBS. I have seen the commercial many times and it really never caught my attention until a month ago. I watched one episode one time right after the new season of Survivor and I really liked it. 

It is such a very interesting show. Every week they always haves different episode and that's one of the things that I like about this show. Unlike any other shows where one story it will be continued on the next episode. So now I look forward to this show every week!

Busy Preparing His Birthday

So busy this week preparing for my son's 1st birthday. Don't know why though, it's not like we're having some big party with a lot of people attending. It is just us and a few close friends. I am fixing some of our favorite Filipino dishes and that's what have been keeping me busy these days. For the menu it's gonna be, bam-i or stir-fry noodles with veggies in it and a little meat, lumpia or eggrolls, Escabeche or fish in sweet and sour sauce and veggies, sweet and sour meatballs and I am fixing Lechon kawali or pan-fried roast pig but won't be cooked in the pan, instead, it'll be broiled in the oven. Can't wait to taste that, it has been a while since I had some Lechon! Just thinking about of a whole pig roast in an open charcoal for how many hours just makes me drool! I wish I am able to purchase a whole roast pig or lechon but if I can, it will be dang expensive for sure! The lechon kawali is like a mini version of the lechon but cook in a pan but like I said this is gonna be a different version of the lechon kawali. 

One of my friends on facebook made a no-fry lechon kawali, she broiled hers until the skin turns brown and crispy and left in the overn in 400 degree heat for how many minutes and it sure looked so dang good!! That's why I want to try it out! Hopefully mine will turn out good! Anyhow, I am almost done buying all the ingredients that I am gonna need for my son's birthday. But I still got a few more things to get such as ordering his cake, get some paper plates, utensils, cups and all of that. I still got to clean the house, get rid off some stuff. I am not just doing this for my son's birthday but for Thanksgiving as well. I want this whole dang house straightened out before his 1st birthday and Thanksgiving and hopefully we can keep it clean until Christmas and New Year!

He's In The Cub Scout Now!

So my first grader is officially in the Cub Scout now! I said officially because he's got uniforms and everything that a Cub Scout would need or required! Thanks to my mother-in-law for being so generous and purchasing the uniforms and all, they weren't cheap I tell you!

Anyhow, his first Cub Scout trip was last night. They went to the Nature Center and was studying about wolves which I thought was very neat. My son said he enjoyed it. I am really glad that we decided to signed him up in the Cub Scout because he can learn so much stuff from this, not to mention the socializing with other kids and other adults because he is really lacking on that. He will learn so much things from it, not only physical but also how to respect and value other things! So I am really looking forward for more activities that they are gonna have in the future!

So Let The Countdown Begin...

This handsome little man in the picture above is about to turn a year old in 10 days! I have mixed feelings about it, happy, sad, excited which I think is perfectly normal for parents to feel. Since I don't have anymore plans to have another one in the future, I am really sad that he has grown so fast but yet happy that he is as normal and handsome as he can be. Every time I look at his baby pictures, it is just amazing to me how much he has grown, even his hair! LOL! When he was born he hardly have any hair and now he has a lot of it now! Oh how much I would miss him being a baby! :(

Anyway, as far as the birthday celebration goes, there is not gonna be a big party or things like that. Just a simple celebration with family and some friends like we usually do. For the menu, I am fixing Filipino dishes. I am thinking of getting him two 1/8 sheets of cakes and I want one of the cakes to be a picture cake. So I am gonna have to take picture of him to print out so I can give it to the deli when I order his cake. I mean I am really excited for him to be turning one but I can't help it to be sad as well. This is just one of those things that are inevitable wether I like it or not!

Fall Festival

So yesterday was my first time to be at my oldest son's annual Fall Festival which was held at their school. Last year when he was just in the kindergarten I didn't go because I was so pregnant with my second child. My mother-in-law took him and said that it was a lot of fun. And I got to see yesterday how fun it truly was for the kid that is. I had a good time just watching the kids enjoyed the inflatables and participating on games that were there. Too bad my son weren't interested on the other games or activities, he was only interested on jumping on the inflatables.

Anyhow, I had some pictures taken which half of them weren't really good. But it doesn't matter, at least I got some decent ones that I can print out later for keepsake. Anyway, pictures below are some that I took from yesterday's event...
