My snow angels

We got a lot of snow this week and the kids love it! It was pretty cold outside but it didn't stop them to have fun and enjoy the snow. We make a little hill in the backyard from the deck down to the ground and its just right for the little one like them to sled and they love it! I couldn't get myself to lay down in the snow and make snow angels but the kids can! hehe :-) Love this photo, they are so adorable!

security software

Once in a while I scan my computer for viruses. I trust our security software here and so far we didn’t have a problem for virus. Virus is really bad, when you get a virus attack in your computer, you need to re-program it again. It takes a lot of work and if you don’t have back up for your files, I am sure you will lose all of them and need to start all over again. That’s why it is important to have a security software in your computer because we never know that all those website we search and browse have a deadly virus.

my zumba boy

When I got this zumba fitness wii game, I am not the only one who play and dance with it. Me, my husband and my two kids is also dance with me and its nice to do it as a family. We try to work out 30 minutes to one hour a day. But the kids and my husband can only last about 15-20 minutes, but its okay at least they tried. This is a picture of my 6 year old son, having fun on this zumba fitness, he has about 4-5 favorite dance move and it makes him feel good when he earn stars.

pool heaters

No one doesn’t like to swim in a cold swimming pool. Do you? I used to swim in a cold pool before when I was in the Philippines but when I came here in the US, I always use hot water for my shower. Hot spring is also popular in this Valley so usually me and my friends go their once or twice a year. It depends on the weather. When we go travel, we expect that the swimming pool at the hotel is warm because if its cold, we won’t go on swimming and the kids doesn’t like it anyway, its way too cold for them, good thing they also have a warm tub so in case you get cold in the pool then you can spend the rest of your time hanging out in a warm tub. Anyhow, I wonder if some of them use the raypak pool heaters from, they have great products when it comes to pool heaters.

Ear and nose specialist

We will take Dustin to an ear and nose specialist this afternoon to make sure everything is okay. Dustin still have this stuffy nose and it affects his ears. The last time we went to the Doctor, the Doctor said he has a little bit of an ear infection. He didn't give him an antibiotic instead he can use the nasal spray until his nose cleared up. Yesterday, I am kind a worried because when he woke up in the morning, his right side of his neck below his ears is swolen. So I was thinking maybe because he lays down on that side more that's why he got the cramps. When I was checking it, there's a little bump in it, he has swolen glands. So before lunch after I went grocery, I went to their school to check him out and see how his doing but he seems fine. He said, he feel okay and not feel the pain at all so I guess its not that bad. So today, the kids still sleeping and I will wake them up in about an hour and will get ready to go to the doctor for Dustin check up at 11:00am.

Potty trained

I'm glad my 3 year old daughter is completely potty trained now. She always told me whenever she wants to go potty. She did pretty good though but sometimes she had one accident in the afternoon especially when she is playing. I let her wear big girl underwear but seems like she doesn't like it. She is not used to it and she likes the training pants better than her big girl underwear. We bought her the one she likes but until now she is not wearing it. She prefer the training pants better. Maybe it takes a while for her to get used to a big girl underwear but I'm still happy that she go potty in the bathroom now by herself. She is a big girl now!


My 6 year old son was excuse today at school because he never had enough sleep last night due to his cough. His been coughing a lot last night and he had this cough for more than 2 week now. We get him an appointment next week Wednesday to see a specialist. We took him last Monday to the Doctor because his cough keeps coming back. We though it was whooping cough but the doctor said its not. So its a big relief to us that his cough is not that contageous. This cough is been around in this Valley and I am sure many of the kids and adults right now in different areas here in Colorado suffer this illness. Wish my son will get over this cough so that he won't miss school. He loves school a lot and he doesn't like to get sick and miss school  but what can we do? He needs to stay home and rest and wait until he gets better.

Yesterday, he went to school because he said he is fine but he still coughing in the morning. I went to their school around lunch time to check on him and the teacher said he is not complaining for anything. He seems fine but when he gets home and started coughing a lot again and last night, he had terrible night, he couldn't sleep right because of his cough. As a parent, we are worried about him and its hard for us to see him suffer this cough. Hope he will get better soon.

Get over it...

I'm glad that my kids is feeling better now. I guess my 6 year old son get over his cough and runny nose. Just me and my husband still had it but hopefully we'll feel better soon. It's first week of December, time came by so fast! I can't believe that Dustin will be 7 years old next two months from now, this coming January 2nd and my little girl will be 4 years old this coming February 26. My kiddos are growing so fast. I am still looking forward for our vacation in the Philippines, hopefully next year or maybe next two years. Will see how much money we can save  next year. Hope we can save enough for our vacation. :-) Happy blogging everyone!

My sleeping beauty

My sleeping beauty is knock out! She is way too tired because she didn't took a nap this afternoon. She played so much with her friends. I'm glad that she just sleep on her own and not getting grouchy when she's tired. As long she had her milk bottle then she will be fine ;-)


When we moved out here in San Luis Valley, my son was kind a upset because he doesn’t want to leave his friends at school and his teacher but that time, my husband got a job transfer and we need to move not before January. So that’s what we did, we say goodbye to some of our friends and we will surely be okay moving here in a small town. When we settled everything, instead of enrolling my son on the nearest school here in the area, we decided to wait until September to enroll him. For the mean time, he continue his studies online. Home school is not that bad though, he can do his school whenever time he likes, as long he finish all the activities and assignments that needs to be done. He really enjoy it as well as my 3 year old daughter.

Since my 6 year son go back to school this year, we cancel his account and just keep the one for my little girl. She finished the kindergarten lesson and now she is proceeding to a first grader lesson. So if you planning to do home schooling for your kids, you might like to try the Bridgeway Free Learning Style Assessment, you can visit their website and see how their programs works.

Keep in shape

I am raising 2 wonderful kids and I love being a parent. When I am doing my zumba fitness workout, my kids always there for me, they dance and work out with me. We are having fun! We try to drag daddy to join us because my 3 year old daughter like it when her dad carry her while dancing. This is one of the best thing you can do as a family, this will help family to get more closer together. Well, I been doing my workout for 8 days now and I am looking forward for the results after 3 weeks. It's nice to keep in shape and healthy for myself, my husband and for my family.

play pretend

When I was young, me and my friends like to play detective spy game. We pretend to be a detective trying to find a clue, but the spy gadgets we use is just made of wood, plastic and anything that we can use as long its usable. We just do it for fun and if we get tired of it, we still have a lot of games ideas to play. It was fun in my childhood and I miss those moments. Talking about spy gadgets, if your looking for this type of products, look no further and visit, they have all spy gadgets you need for a very affordable price!

Kids wearing daddy shoes

This kids are getting silly here. They love to play daddy shoes and walk around the house wearing those big boots and sandals. I keep remind them to be careful because they might fall and hurt themselves since those shoes are way too big for them and they are heavy shoes especially daddy's work boots.

florida house rentals

Wouldn’t be nice to go for a week or two vacation and get away in the City for a while? I am sure many of you think that way. Working a lot in a busy environment seems very stressful. Its nice to get away for a while and pamper your self with a very luxurious, enjoyable vacation. How about going to Florida? Well, Florida is one of the place I really wanted to visit. Since my husband always talking about Florida Keys and the white sand beaches out there. Makes me think about my hometown. It’s nice to live closer to the ocean. Hearing the ocean waves makes me feel at ease. It helps me to feel better whenever I am not in mood. Well, if you feel like you need a break then try the florida beach house rentals from, they have a lot to offer. You can choose the one that is more comfortable that meets your budget. Have fun!

Pajama day at school

This photo was taken last month of September. I just got a chance to post this online. Dustin always ask me why does he need to wear pajama to go to school and I said that all the kids going to his school will wearing pajama because it is pajama day at school and the day after tomorrow it was Mismatch day so he needs to wear a mismatch clothes. He wear his favorite pajama with the football and soccer ball print on it. He was so cute!

window replacement

I remember when we're still in Grand Junction when someone brakes the window of our truck. That was terrible and we even don't know who did it. Our dog woke us up in the middle of the night, he keep barking but we just ignore him and when we woke up in the morning, we find out that the left window was already broken. I don't know how those people enter the yard, maybe they throw rocks and accidentally hit the window or maybe they do it in purpose. Good thing we never had that kind of experience here in the new place where we moved. Anyhow, talking about window, if you live somewhere in Virginia and have problem on your window and needed to replace it, you can rely at the window replacement virginia beach. If you have any questions about their service or want to know the price. You can visit their website or call this number (757)499-7165.

Dress up game

This photo was taken last couple weeks ago at our friends house. The kids was doing a dress up game. This is Leanna and my 6 year old son. They play pretend that they are Isralites. They look so cute! :-)

wall aquarium

I love having an aquarium in the house. Just watching the fish, helps me to feel relax. The kids loves it too! We had a small aquarium but my husband wanted to get a bigger tank and maybe buy a salt water fish because they are look nice than the fresh water fish. But for me it doesn’t matter, either he wanted a small or a bigger tank as long we have an extra budget. We still have a bigger space in the house and I guess the wall aquariums look nice too. I will consider to have a wall aquarium even though I am not sure what my husband will like but whatever he like, I won’t mind it at all.

Crazy hair day

Last week, September 17 - Dustin going to school with a crazy hair. It was a crazy hair day at school so when Dustin woke up, I didn't brush his hair and just let it go because he always have crazy hair like this when he woke up in the morning. Some kids put color and crazy ponytails in their hair. Then on Tuesday its a Pajama day at school!

archipelago botanicals

 I love the scent of the flower candle inside the house. It's nice to smell those flowers and feel like you are in the meadows with full of pretty, beautiful colorful flowers. I usually carry candles and other scent in the house and whenever we have visitors and friends, they always notice the smell. I also like to give candles as a gift to a friend or maybe relatives. My mother in law love candles and I also have friends that collect different candles just like the archipelago botanicals smallflower at, they have the most popular candle for men and the most popular archipelago candle scent. Not only they carry candles but they also have body wash, lotion and cream. So if you are interested, visit their website and try one of their products and see if you like it.

vacation in Florida

I been wanted to go to Florida one day and spend a week or two vacation closer to Tampa Bay or in Florida Keys. My husband been talking about that place and he told me that he will take me there someday and he will show me some beautiful place in Florida. It would be nice if we can experience riding the limo service tampa too. I never tried to ride a limo and I am looking forward to ride it one day. Just like a friend of mine in Vegas when they have a ladies night party, they got a chance to ride the limo and she said it was really fun. I am looking forward to met my friend in Florida too, her family is a witness too so its nice if we can visit them while were in vacation. I am not sure when but will see in the future.

Not feeling well...

Since last night Dustin was not feeling well, he keep coming back to the bathroom and he had an accident in his pants at night and I need to clean it up the mess. Since we had a get together party tonight, I might need to cancel it and postponed it for tomorrow or maybe next week. Dana feel the same way too this morning when she woke up, she woke up crying and she said her tummy hurts. I felt bad when the kids are sick. I can't bare to watch them feeling unwell. Hope they will feel better soon, if it gets worst, i might need to take them in to the doctor and see what's going on.

Got our family Portrait!

We just got our family Portrait last Monday and I am so happy with the outcome. All the pictures turn out really nice. I got 13 pictures for $150 so its pretty good deal. If I got all the 19 photos plus the CD, I will pay $250 and without CD its $200. So its pretty much and that time I don't want to pay that much for a photo. I would really love to get that huge canvas photo that looks like a painting but the price is kind a pretty high is about $600 and we don't have that kind of budget for that canvas print. So far were  happy for the photos we got and we will just buy a nice frame so that we can start hanging this photo in the wall.

cigars for less

I remember what my friend say before way back in the Philippines that once you try smoking, you will start longing for it more that‘s why I am kind a scared to give it a try. I‘ll just let some of my friends do their thing and I don‘t care if they like to smoke if that‘s what they want. Couple weeks ago, I talk to one of my friend who’s dad is a smoker and she ask me if I knew any website who offer cigars for less. I told her that I will look up to it online and see if I can find one so I decided to share him the website at, he might find the cigars that his father like.

My little artist

Look at her, she is very serious doing her watercolor painting. She did good on coloring and painting for the age of 3, and I'm so happy to see her enjoying it. More practice and she will be better in no time! :-)

Kids new bed!

My little girl pinky bed with the slide

Dustin's new bed with the slide!
We just got this two twin bed at Walmart. We ordered it online. The kids love it and they love the slide and the secret hide out a lot. They both sleeping now in their own bed. They slide many times before going to bed. That will help them to sleep good :-)

Dustin's first day of school!

Today is Dustin's first day of school. He was very excited and happy about it. I wanted him to feel that way so that when he get to school he won't have hard time, he's not a shy type at all, he said he will be fine by himself so he told me to go and will pick him up in the afternoon after class. He is in first grade now, he's a grown up boy now and hope he will learn more in school that he will be one of the top students in their class. :-) I am so happy for him!

my new favorite outdoor adventure

I love doing outdoor stuff like camping and hiking and guess what? I have a new favorite one to do with my family on weekend and that is Fishing. I thought fishing is boring but it change after we see all the fish we caught. We caught not more than 20 fish on our first time fishing but we all let the fish go since we are not sure that we will catch that more that day. But the second time we went on fishing, we took it home and have it for dinner. It was fun though and will surely bring our Stanley thermos next time since we forget to bring it last time.

What I like about Stanley food and drink containers, they are build tough and you can bring it anywhere you go either at work or doing stuff outdoors. We can keep our food and drinks fresh and cold. When everyone gets hungry, we stop fishing for a while and have a snack. It was fun and I am sure many family out there are doing the same thing we do. So if the weather is nice, so get a chance to get out and spend time with your family, going fishing, camping and enjoy the scenery in the mountain and appreciate God’s creation.

Went Fishing!

We go back to Echo Canyon last Saturday to go fishing. The first spot we went to, there's not so much fish in there so we decided to pack up and go to the little Island in the middle of the lake. We saw some people fishing in there and they seems did pretty good, they caught some in there and we can't wait to catch some too. Look at Dustin at this photo, he caught a fish right away and me too! We caught a good size bluegill. That's our first catch and we catch some more on that day! We caught 18 bluegills and 3 bass! It was a nice day though and we're happy to take the fish home for dinner!

"When to see the Vet: Common cat health problems that need medical attention"

Cat health problems are often overlooked by their owners as normal cat behaviors, and some owners try to
improve cat health themselves. Some cat health problems can be treated and prevented at home, but some very common cat health problems should be looked at by a vet.

If your cat refuses food for more than 2 days, it is suggested that you take the cat to the vet. While many pet owners assume cats will eat when they are hungry – this is not always the case. Though it may seem like your cat is just a picky eater, cat anorexia can be a symptom of an underlying problem such as anemia, bacterial infection, diabetes, and heartworm to name a few.

We all expect our cats breath to be a little stinky, right? They eat a lot of fish based foods and treats, which are smelly, so it only makes sense! If your cat’s breath is still foul hours after eating, you will want to get her to the vet sooner than later. Bad breath in cats can be a sign of kidney disease, liver disease, diabetes, and other medical problems.

Some common cat problems can turn serious if left untreated. Diarrhea for more than 12 hours, excessive sneezing, increased thirst, or excessive scratching should all be checked out by your vet.

If you notice any bleeding, burns, or difficulty breathing you should take the cat to the vet immediately. Cats cannot tell us what is wrong when they are hurt, and what may seem like a minor injury to us can be fatal to your cat. When in doubt, call your vet or an emergency vet in your area. Many vets are more than willing to answer questions over the phone, and will let you know for sure if your kitty needs to be brought to the vet!

Swimming at the clubhouse, Michigan

One of the thing we always do when we go on vacation, its swimming! Kids love to swim and its a perfect day to swim and feel refresh at the pool. This was taken last month when we visit my mother in law in Michigan. It was such a nice vacation and its nice to see my husband's family.

swing sets for the kids

Would it be nice to have a swing set in the backyard that way the kids won’t think about going to the park on weekend. Having your own park in the backyard is a good idea, they can play whenever they like! They can invite their friends and play with them. Just like last Monday, we invited some kids in the house, since we still don’t have a swing set, they are just playing water balloon and golf. Myy husband and I really wanted to buy a custom swing sets, I am not sure how much that cost but we saw a nice custom swing sets richmond va online, they been designing and building backyard playground since 2005. I saw some of the photos and they look so nice. That 4’x 4’ wooden playset in Apex will be perfect in the backyard. So hopefully not before winter, we can buy a swing set for the kids.

Lawn Sprinkler Systems

When we move to our new house, the first thing we do is to make sure everything in the house is working alright. The lights, the water, the irrigation supplies, all the sprinkler system in the front and back of the yard and more. I guess we hire someone to do the inspection that way we don't need to worry if we moved out. If there are something wrong then we can fix and replace a new one right away.

I like our lawn sprinkler systems here, once in a while in the afternoon the kids can play in the backyard when the sprinkler is on; they just love to play in the water. So when the sprinkler is on, they will just run around and make themselves wet. Just have a little problem in the front yard though, because I notice that the sprinkler heads are sticking up even though the sprinker is already off, So I need to go outside and give a little push in it. 

But so far we are happy to live in this Valley, we meet a lot of friends in the congregation, we can do a lot of outdoors adventure on summer and fall like hiking, fishing and camping. We saw a lot of camping and hiking trails in San Luis Valley so we are really happy about it.

Kids get together

Yesterday after service, the kids are looking forward that afternoon because their friends will come over to the house and play with them for couple hours. One of them bought a water balloon, they really had fun playing with it, they get all wet and hearing those little laughs makes me happy. It reminds me of my childhood. It takes only few minutes to used all those water balloons after they done, they go back inside and play the wii games. Dustin showed his friends his new wii games the "Wipe Out". At first, the second player doesn't work but the more they try it in a couple times then they get a chance to work the second player so they having a blast yesterday for that game. When their parents arrive, we invited them to stay a little longer and have dinner with us. We just had a hamburger and a chili dog. It was sooo good!

poly sheeting

We did paint our 3 bedroom before when we live in Grand Junction. It was fun to paint but at the same time its very tiring. We need to move all the furniture in the bedroom and cover the floor with the poly sheeting. The poly sheeting helps a lot, we didn’t get any paint spot in the floor. All the paint drip goes to the sheet so its kind a neat. That’s what happens too when we moved here in our new house in San Luis Valley. The moving company use plastic and poly sheet to cover the floor to make sure they won’t get any dirt and snow inside the house while their bringing all the furniture in. So when it comes to poly sheeting, you can buy them online at

Kids caught fish!

We went on fishing today at Echo Canyon around noon. At first we didn't caught anything because we are not using the right bait. We pack our stuff and leave the area for awhile and went to the fishing store at Pagosa Spring to get some worm for bait and come back. We didn't go back to the same spot, we transfer to the other side of the lake and when Dustin throw his fishing pole, he caught one right away! That was a quick one! and look he is so happy that he caught his first fish! Same as Dana, she caught one too! What a nice day to go fishing and see the smile on my kids face! :-) Will do this again next time, maybe next weekend. Next time, we'll make sure we will take the fish home and have it for dinner! :-)

sterling silver necklace

I remember when we went to San Francisco, I saw this very nice sterling silver necklace at one of the jewelry store, I was thinking to buy it but when I look at the price, it seems very expensive so I decided not to. I didn't even told my husband about it, I don't want to spend that much in our vacation, rather buying expensive jewelry, its better to spend it more to our vacation because we still need to go to Monterey after few days in San Francisco. I will just wait for our anniversary then. Anyhow, if you like this type of jewelry, you can visit, they have great selections of sterling silver necklace and bracelet.

Like a turtle

We just bought Cocao our Pitbull his own dog bed but instead of the dog laying on it, the kids are having fun playing with it. They pretend to be like a turtle, like Dana at the first photo, she thinks she's a turtle hiding in her shell. She so silly, and she's riding Dustin's back too and they keep laughing. Now stop playing that dog bed and give it to Cocao that way Cocao can sleep and rest in it. Silly kids... hehe :-)

Battery charger

When we went to Michigan last 2 weeks ago, I thought I forgot to bring my Battery charger for my cellphone and the charger for my laptop. It freaks me out! I don’t want to buy a new battery charger then when we get back, we have a double charger for my phone. I’m glad my husband bring his battery charger and he also put my charger in his luggage. When I found out, I feel relief and happy. Next time I need to make sure that Battery charger is on my vacation list and guess what? I need to buy rechargeable batteries for our wii controllers because one of them already run out of batteries.

Family time - Hiking

This photo taken last week Friday, July 20, 2012 at Big Meadows Trail. The last time we went for a hike is when Dustin is about a year old. That was 5 years ago. We still used the bag pack carrier that we used for Dustin and now Dana is the one riding in it. The view are fantastic, the lake look very nice and clean. We saw some people go on fishing at the lake, we might go on fishing next time but first we need to buy some fishing stuff. The hike was very nice, it was 3 miles walking around the lake. We saw some wild flowers, we hear the woodpecker very loudly in the woods, the beaver house, the waterfalls and we really enjoy the view.

Options for infertile women

Thank you, Melissa, for contributing this guest post!

After trying time and again to try to conceive a baby, I finally paid that dreadful visit to the doctor to learn that I am indeed infertile. At any age, this can be a traumatizing truth to a women. At age 25, I was mortified. I started questioning just what it was that I had done throughout my life that made me this way. Had I ate one too many late-night cheeseburgers in college? Gone out drinking too much and exercised too little? What if I had quit smoking just a year earlier than I did? I eventually learned that blaming my former-self sure wasn't helping my stress levels, which in turn was damaging my body even more!

So how did I come around and choose help over self-deprecation? Believe it or not, it started with a simple Google search of “infertility help” when I came across Resolve. Upon my reading I slowly began to realize that organizations such as this one wouldn't exist unless there were plenty of other women like me! So I continued my searches by seeking out these women on forums. God bless the Internet, because not only has it connected me with women whom I can relate to, but its sources provided me with all the options which I eventually weighed to give me the beautiful baby I have today.

And just what are some of these options? Well, I personally began with some of the “less extreme” options. Taking fertility medicines along with intrauterine insemination, or IUI, proved useless, as did in vitro fertilization, or IVF. Adoption, of course, was a consideration of mine. The process, to be honest, was its biggest put-off. And surrogacy, as much respect as I have for women who become surrogate mothers, seemed a little strange for me. This is when I decided to try an egg donor. There are plenty of egg donation centers to be found. My Egg Bank is one such location and is considered to be one of the top egg donation facilites in Atlanta. My egg donor gave me a child, saved my marriage, and saved my life. I am forever grateful to this anonymous donor and have the utmost respect for any woman who has the right stuff to become an egg donor.

Mike and the kids

Look how sweet this photo is. The kids are all over their daddy. Dana is jealous because Dustin get a chance to ride on daddy shoulder. She wanted to ride too. I was just busy shopping and picking some dresses to try it on then suddenly I saw them like this so I grab my photo and take a picture of them. It was a nice photo, love it!

Holiday Inn in Kansas

This is the second night going to Michigan. Instead of driving another 16 hours, we decided to drive 9  hours and will do another 6 hours tomorrow. Will surely be there in Michigan Monday afternoon. We had great time, Mike check their indoor pool and it was very nice. The water temperature is just right. We're just the only one swimming that time, we left when some family came. This are one of my favorite photos.

Picnic time!

Picnic is fun for the family and everyone in the family can do it especially to those people who love outdoors. We did picnic today at the Stoney Creek Metropark and it was really nice. We let the kids play around at their play area, they have pretty nice playground for the kids and I really enjoy watching the kids playing. I also feel young like those little kids playing at the park. The weather is nice, we have 82 degrees. The water at the lake got perfect temperature and that is my first time swimming at their fresh water beach. Anyhow, I saw some guy wearing an mma shirts, that was pretty cool! When we get home, I look up online for mma shirts and I found the one that I am looking for. I bet those guys got this shirts online or maybe not. But you know what? We all got worn out for all the swimming and playing we did and I think I'm kind a need a nap right now.

At Mom's backyard

We're here in Michigan for our 10 days vacation. We arrive safely to my mother in law house. It was 6 years ago since the last time we visited Michigan and were glad that we made it this year. The kids really had fun! they are so happy to see their Grandma. This photo taken at mom's backyard, they have a little play area out there so I took my camera and take a picture of me and the kids, daddy is watching us at the sliding door. :-)

Went to Detroit Zoo!

We went to the zoo today, it was really fun. The kids are all excited to see their favorite animals. My 3 year old daughter wanted to see Giraffe's, flamingos, lions and tigers and Dustin like the birds, penguins, sea otters and Rhinos. They have fabulous area for those big animals and the gorillas and chimpanzees are pretty cool! Anyhow, we rode a train first all the way to the back of the zoo and start from there to front. It's a long way walk but it was fun though to see all those different kinds of animals that I've never seen in the Philippines before. I only seen those animals on TV and its really amazing to see them personally. We finished around 3 o'clock and before we headed home of course we stop by to their zoo gift shop store. They have all kinds of animal toys, large plush animals to small one, animals jewelries, t-shirts and other souvenirs from the zoo. Me and Dana got a pink detroit zoo t-shirt, she also got a bush baby stuff toy and Dustin got a Safari big zoo transporter. Thanks to daddy for taking us to the zoo today!

Just got back...

We're just back from our Convention in Pueblo. It was so nice and such a very heart warming talk they give. We stayed for 4 nights at the Marriot Hotel and the kids really had fun swimming at the pool. We got a chance to eat at the Bingo Burger and last night we had our dinner at Golden Coral. The kids love that strawberry dip in a chocolate waterfall and also that cotton candy. It was fun and 2 weeks from now, we will going to Michigan for a 3 weeks vacation to visit my mother-in-law. It was a long ride but it was exciting!

Dustin jump!

I took this photos for fun. He likes to jump and the first photo is the one I like the most. I think I captured the perfect jump. We just mow the lawn and look how pretty the lawn is! Love our lawn and the kids love to play in it!

ceiling fans

Here it goes again, I saw that Casablanca ceiling fans that I really like online. I would like to replace our old ceiling fan to that ceiling fan I saw at That will be perfect in the living room. Well, if we can’t do that, we can still put ceiling fan on the kids room since they don’t have ceiling fan installed in the kids bedroom. That’s why my 6 year old son doesn’t want to sleep in his bedroom because he sweat a lot and he doesn’t like it when he don’t have the fan on. We try to put the electric fan to it but he still doesn’t like it. He prefer to have ceiling fan that’s why he always end up sleeping in our bedroom.

birth defects lawsuits

To all pregnant women out there, you need to be careful on what medication you are taking, they might have a bad reaction and side effects to it for you and your baby. It’s not safe for you and your baby to take drugs, drink alcohol and take over the counter drugs. It’s better to make sure that all you eat are all healthy food. For the sake of your health and the health of your baby, be sure that the medication you take are safe.

We don’t want to end up regretting it after right? I read some of lexapro, celexa side effects and the effexor birth defects online. Its nice to be aware on this kind of medication because we don’t want something happen to our baby. Sometimes other people is not aware of such things that’s why a little research can help. If you hear this type of medication, be aware of it. If you already experience the side effects to it, then you need a professional help from They will help you with this matter.

Like lexapro, this is a prescription drug used as an antidepressant and anti-anxiety medication and lexapro taken by women who are pregnant, the drug is associated with a risk of birth defects. Some of the problems that have been linked to lexapro include, spontaneous abortion, heart defects, cleft lip and other septal defects, clubfoot and symptoms of drug withdrawal. Then if your baby has this birth defects, you can rely on lexapro lawsuits from For more details visit their website and know your legal rights!

Dustin second loose tooth

Look how happy he is that he pulled his loose tooth all by himself! Its been a month since he got his loose tooth. The adult tooth already coming out in the back of his baby tooth and I keep telling him to keep wiggling his loose tooth and don't wait until the other one comes out. That way he don't have two tooth in one place. Anyhow, I keep his second loose tooth and will put it in my scrapbook that way he can see it when he grow up. It's nice to keep memories from the kids and family then in the future we can look at those pictures with a smile in our face. :-)

work uniform

I’m so glad that my brother find a new job. He is still working at the bakery in a new management and I am sure he can’t wait to wear his new work uniforms. I like their uniforms because its all white and it looks really neat and clean. He is very good on all his white clothing. He is the one who wash it and of course his wife is the one who iron it everyday. I remember the time when I work at the CafĂ© and wear our new work uniforms. Too bad I quit early because I got pregnant that time and my husband doesn’t want me to work anymore so I gave my work uniform to my co-worker. I have a lot of memories at work and I miss sitting down in my computer and do all the typing job.

Nice day...

It's nice to play in the backyard when the weather is nice as this. It was sunny, blue sky and its not really windy. Unlike this past few days, the wind are terrible. It was blasting and a lot of dust in the air. The tomatoes and peppers that we just planted couple days ago, it frost and it died. I don't think we will buy tomato plant and peppers again. :-)

trucker gps

A friend of mine ask if I have a gps in my car and I say No. I am not sure if we need it but if we does, I guess we can get one. Her husband bought her a trucker gps for their trucking business and she used it in personal use too but she’s not sure if she got the right one. She might need to replace it or get another one that way she doesn’t need to use her tracker gps on her personal use. I recommended her the trucker gps available online at since they offer a very affordable price. This might be the right one she need, but I am not sure, she might need to look at it and see for herself.

Your legal seeker

Taking over the counter drugs is not good to your health even though it is prescribed from your doctor especially if you are not taking it right. Your health is at stake when you take as much as it prescribed. Like when you are pregnant, you can't take any strong medication because it might affect the health of your baby. Some medication have very bad side effects. So we really need to be careful with that. Like me, I don't really take pain killers especially if I can still take the pain. If I can't bare the pain anymore that's the time I will get the medication or go to the doctor.
Anyhow, if you have the problem like this, like you wanted to file a case for lexapro birth defects, effexor side effects, you can contact the legal seeker. They will help you with this matter. You can rely them also about the celexa lawsuits and get the help you need. If you are one of those people who take celexa, effexor and any dangerous drugs while you are pregnant and had the bad side effects on your baby then call them now. Visit for more information about this subject.

They play pretend that they can ride the rake like a horse. They just want to ride on my back. It was a nice day to play in our backyard. The grass is green and nice and the kids really having fun :-)

fleet gps

Is it that worrisome when your teenager kids drive the car and you don’t know where they are? I am sure many parents have the same problem like this. But you know what? If you really worried that much, you can get a real-time mobile tracking from, I think that’s what they called fleet gps. We never have this one yet since we don’t have teenager living in the house but if we did, we will surely need this type of tracking device, that way we can track the kids and we can have a peace of mind and know where they are.

Family Bike Ride

Mike just bought me a new bike so both him and I have a new bike. The kids are so happy when we all ride a bike together as a family. Dustin just learn riding his bike without the training wheels. He made up his mind last week to take off his training wheels and a few days later, he already figure it out on how to ride his own. Now he had fun riding his bike and every afternoon we get a chance to ride a bike while waiting for daddy to come home.
