Cold and Flu...

Yes, one of my kid got cold and flu and it last for a week. Thank God it didn't last that long unlike other kids got sick for the whole 2 weeks or more! Cold and Flu is very common in the Valley and its going around. My 8 year old son seems got it from school. He woke up in the morning with a really dry annoying cough. So I called the school to excuse him for the day. Then he got 100.8 fever at night. He start throwing up and have diarrhea. We give him a lot of fluids, pump him up with green juice, vitamins, cod liver oil and the sugar pill for his sinus. Lot of rest and I also give him massage on his back, foot and leg. I used my favorite essential oil "White Flower", its made in hongkong. I got them online. I been using this white flower since I was a kid and I'll tell you its really works. My son sleep good at night but there are days that he really had a bad night. Cough keeps waking him up, it wake us up too. Good thing he feel better now. We didn't take him to the doctor, we just keep it home safe and warm. Give him lot of attention, lots of love and care. Give him all the vitamins that his body needs and I think the green juice helps a lot too. I like to use warm and honey lemon for him to drink and that helps his cough. 

We don't believe in flu shot and we try not to get a shot because of all the weird ingredients they put in it so we don't want to put that in our body and even in our kids body. We research a lot about vaccines and we are not happy with the results, so we decided to avoid vaccines. I never get flu shot too and I don't get sick that much. I try to watch my diet and try not to over eat any kind of wheat products, dairy and sugar and also not to forget to take all my vitamins, drink a lot of water, exercise two times a week, control the stress, have enough sleep, be happy and have a healthy spiritual routine. That's what I do to have a healthy lifestyle :-)

mother and daughter moment

It was so fun when we took this pictures. My daughter keeps hugging and squeezing me so I decided to take a picture of us together. She likes to be in the camera, she is not afraid to show her pretty smile. Look how happy she is at the picture, me too I'm so happy and proud to have her as my daughter. This is such a nice photo of us together and I always keep it in my heart. Love you my sweetie pie! Your the best!

Winter Breaks at School!

Kids are so happy and excited that they have two weeks vacation for this month of December. Its their winter break! That means, we don't need to wake up early in the  morning! Its hard to wake up when its too cold outside. Good thing we didn't get a lot of snow yet unlike last year, we got a lot. This morning it was pretty cold its about 20 degrees. So hopefully this couple weeks will be a good weather. We're looking forward to spend more time with our kids this two weeks!

Pretty Sunset of San Luis Valley

This are the photo I took when my husband took me for a ride around 10 minutes away from where we live, we got a chance to see the beautiful orange sky. We really didn't see the sun going down but the view with the orange sky is so beautiful. I really appreciate God's creation and this view makes my day! Thanks bebeeh! Love you lots!

Kids tea party!

My two kids are very excited because they are invited for a kids tea party at one of their friends house. So that means, my husband and I got a chance to be alone together without the kids. They will be gone only for 2 hours, so my husband and I went to go out and eat then we went for a ride to the mountain for a little while to see the sunset. It was pretty nice, its quite a nice ride actually. It was sweet of him to take me for a ride to see the sunset. Then we pick up the kids after two hours. They seems pretty happy and worn out of course. They got all sugar rush because of all the sugar threats they had and they are look tired when they got home. My 5 year old girl fall asleep right after we came home. She lays down on her daddy's lap and fall asleep and my 8 year old son is busy in his game. He looks tired too but he seems pretty happy because he is the only the boy at the party :-)

5 Year Old Fil-American girl singing "Ako si Takure" Visayan version of "I'm a little tea pot"

She practice this song in 3 days. Visayan language is kind a hard to learn but she is a fast learner. I try to teach her tagalog and visayan language and sometimes she got confuse on two language. But when I teach her to sing this song, she started to like it and not only that, she is also learning how to sing head shoulder knees and toes in Visayan version. She is such a cutie and I am sure she won't have hard time learning another language on her early age. My son, seems having hard time pronouncing the word and he doesn't like the language that much. My son is not interested that much on Visayan language but hopefully he will learn too like her younger sister.

My kids drawing

This is such an adorable drawing of my two wonderful kids, Dana and Dustin. I thought I could post it here as a remembrance because I am sure they will erase it after. Look how happy they are in their drawings! I'm glad they feel that way and they enjoy each other as a brother and sister. So proud of my kids!

My Pumpkin Treats!

I made this pumpkin bread! it was delicious! We use einkorn flour, organic xylitol sugar, organic egg and cow share organic milk! All of the ingredients are mostly organic, its healthier than any regular flour and sugar. That's more my family like it! 

My Pumpkin Cookie! I put chocolate kisses in it and cut it into little pieces, it was delicious!

My muffin turns out really big, It looks like a cookie on the top and muffin in the bottom. Lolz :-) but it doesn't matter, my kids and hubby loves it!

a 5 year old drawing

This is a drawing of my 5 year old little girl. She gave it to me last night and it really touch my heart. She spell mammy instead of mommy but that was okay. I love the happy family that she made. It was beautiful and the sun is happy too! Isn't that sweet? We love our little girl and for us, she is very precious and we are so proud of her. :-)

a health insurance quote

A friend of mine from NC was so worry about her health insurance. I am not sure if she’s happy on her insurance or maybe the insurance company just giving her problem. Or maybe she is paying so much and not get enough coverage to it. She thought about getting a new one but she never find one that she really like. She ask some of her family and friends too. She ask me one time what type of health insurance we have and I told her that my husband is the one who has the health insurance from his employer and that I got covered with it too together with our two children. They took it out from his paycheck every month but we never had problem with our health insurance. So, what I did, I told her to give it a try a health insurance quote and maybe she will find the one she’s looking for. Getting a quote is a good idea to find out which insurance that is right for you and affordable. So will see, hopefully she will find the health insurance that she is happy and satisfied with.

Pumpkin Night

Today, I received a big huge pumpkin from one of our friend. She got 2 huge pumpkin at their house and she doesn't know what to do with it and she doesn't want to waste it. So she gave me one and this is what it looks like now.

I cut a big square in it and use it for tonight. I did a lot of baking today! That's a lot of work! I made a pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffin and a pumpkin chocolate cookies! Yummy! We use einkorn flour and organic sugar. It's more safer than the regular flour and regular sugar because they are GMOs, better to be safe than to regret it later. :-)

I also help them, but so far, i was sitting in the shade and wait til the sun is down before i go swimming with them. It was so hot that day and i dont want to get sun burn right away so it would be better to wait for a little while. The trip to Paradise Island was awesome. We went there 3 times!

Making them lunch for school

I always prepare my kids lunch everyday and take it to them at school. Its a lot of work but I am getting used to it. It's nice to make their favorite lunch and make sure they will eat the food I prepared for them. They prefer to have a hot lunch and they doesn't like the food at school. I usually make them choose what they like and sometimes I make the choices too. I add fruits and vegies on sides and meat too. They like it when I eat with them. Last year, me and my daughter always visit my 8 year old son at school and eat with him at lunch time and also play with him after lunch. Now that my little girl is in Kindergarten, I made 2 pack lunch now. They went on different school so I drop off the lunch for my son at 11am and went to my daughter's school to give her lunch at 11:30, eat and play with her after. I also like to stay for a little while and see how she's doing. She's happy when I am around. Happy to be a mom! I am a busy mom now :-)

she's back to school!

My little girl was so excited to be back at school. She was excused for two in a half weeks because we have a family trip in the Philippines September 1st to 17th. So I'm glad it went well, we came home safe and everything is back for good now. Dana my 5 year old daughter can't wait to see her teacher and classmate again. So she was at her class last September 22nd til now. I'm so happy that she likes her school and that she really into it now. I never had hard time raising my two kids. They are such a good kids and I am so thankful for the both of them. Having such wonderful kids makes my heart very happy and proud. I am one proud mama of my two little children, one is 8 years old and my youngest is 5 years old. They are growing so fast. I can't believe I already have a kindergarten and a 3rd Grader! That's a fun for being a full time mom :-)

Just wanted to share the trampoline tricks that my kids did last couple weeks ago. They are having a blast! My 5 year old little girl just learn how to do somersault. Its not that bad for a 5 year old to learn it :-) its funny when she said, she can't believe it that she did it :-), she is funny! but me and my husband really enjoy watching them both.

Outdoor Swing

This is our new outdoor swing, we made it last week. As you can see the outdoor in each side of the swing and we really save on this swing. My husband bought the swing set for $98.00 i guess and we provide those big wood, we had it before in the garage and good thing we are able to use it now for the kids swing. Kids love their new swing!

Our family pics

This is our new family shot for this month of july 2014. Love them all!

Our new Swing Set

We love our new swing set! my husband bought the swing set but we made the swing stand. We painted it white and me and the kids paint our favorite cartoon character in it and some other stuff that we like to add an artwork to each side of the wood. It was nice, we did a lot to it and we finish setting them all within 2 1/2 hours. It was a lot of work but it was worth it, kids love it and every afternoon, they play at the swing and spend time playing outside in their trampoline too.

cable ties

While me and my husband was cleaning in our garage, I saw about 2-3 boxes full of cables in it and it was a mess. I am not sure what those cables are from or if we could still use it or not. My husband said, we can still use those cables but first we need to organize it. He ask me if I can get some cable ties but I don’t know where to get it. We have tons of cable ties before, we got it at buy heat shrink, they have all the cable ties we need in different colors. I guess we used them all when we moved because I couldn’t find them anymore, or maybe we put it in the other boxes. I need to find them or else we need to buy another set of cable ties online or maybe at the nearest hardware store here in the valley.

bought a bike for her

I have about four nieces and 3 nephews in the Philippines. Whenever one of them talk to me online, they usually ask for a present. Last time I bought two of my niece a cellphone and the rest, I just sent money for them that way they can buy new clothes and shoes for their school. This time, one of my niece ask for a bike instead of cellphone because she broke the cellphone we bought her last time, it feel in the water and it wont work anymore. Its not her fault though but still, its her responsibility to taking care of it. Its been couple months since she's been asking for another present, she always feel jealous in one of her cousin, she thinks, we favor her much than her. But honestly, we dont do any favor to all of them. I told them I can't please them all and I cant afford to buy expensive things for them especially whenever they ask for it. If i have a lot of money, I will absolutely buy anything they want, but we have tons of bills to pay and my kids also have needs and I can't give anything they want if they ask for it. This morning, we decided to send my family an extra allowance and buy her a bike that she likes. Hope this makes her happy, next time I'll buy something for my other 2 nephews, they just need to be patience and wait til we have enough extra money to share.

contract disputes

I work before in a small company and we never had problem with our customers and clients. I also never sign any contracts when I started working. Some of my friends does, when they apply a job, they usually end up signing a contract which is they can work for a year or two or maybe for 6 months. I never heard anyone of them having a problem with their contract but its hard for them to find another job after their working contract is over. Anyhow, talking about contract, have you experience contract disputes matters? Are you involved with this or are you looking for a lawyer to resolve this case? Then look no further, might help you find the right lawyer for this case. You might like to check their website and see if they are located near you.

Its been a while

It's been awhile I didn't update this blog. I am kind a lazy to update it. Last 2 months I am involve in a pionerring in our congregation and I really enjoy it a lot. I also try to spend less in my computer and go out more on service with our fellow brothers and sisters. Kind a busy spending time with my family. Its nice to be back! Blogging is kind a slow this past couple weeks, not so much assignment coming in and I dont know what to post anymore. But this time, I'll try to keep this blog updated and hopefully I can start earning money again through blogging. So happy blogging everyone and have a great day!

It's so amazed how this young kid can easily memorize songs especially if they hear the songs many times. Like my 5 year old daughter, after she watch the movie Frozen, she started to like the "Let It Go" song, he want to see it over and over again. Wherever we go, she always sing that song and it was so adorable. So i took a video of her last night, i still need to download it that way I can show it to her two Grandma's. I am sure they would love it!

Reading almost every night help my 4 year old daughter to learn how to read. I can't believe she can read her favorite book now. She memorize every word on that book. She has more than 4 books that she always read every night and whenever we lay down on bed at night, she complains that she will not go to bed unless we read her a book. It was nice that she take interest to read books and she also love her homeschool the abcmouse. She is so excited that she will be in school this Fall! She will be in kindergarten and I'm so happy for her. She's growing fast and hope she will enjoy being in school. I am sure she will! :-)

kids tuxedos

We went to Pueblo last week to pick up my husband’s motorcycle but before we did that we stop by at the mall to buy some few things for the kids. I was looking for a toddler dress for my baby girl and a meeting clothes for my 8 year old son. My kids grown up so fast and even my son tuxedos wont fit him anymore. We also look kids tuxedos at the mall but we didn’t find the one on my son’s size. I am checking them online too and see if I can find tuxedos for my son and hopefully I can find the one I like before March. We will have our assembly on March and having a nice tuxedos for my son would be nice and of course a pretty dress for me and for my daughter would be great too.

My little Astrid and Hiccup

I'm glad my kids are happy to wear the Astrid and Hiccup costume I made for them a month ago. This photo taken last month and they look so adorable at this photo. They love to play dress up and I'm glad they get along well together. We bought them their individual dragons and that makes them both happy too.

ice skating!


This is the second time when me and my kids went to ice skating with friends! It was fun but it was pretty cold that time. We stayed about almost 2 hours. The kids did pretty good! they learn so fast! It was so fun to watch my little girl playing hockey by herself. My little boy still practicing, he fell many times but he keeps going because he really wanted to learn how to skate. I learn a little bit too, I try not to fall so I keep it slow :-) well, we might come back again next time and do more practice that way for next year we will be able to bring daddy with us to go ice skating!

play dress up...

My kids love to play dress up game. Just like what you see here on this photo. They are playing pretend, my little boy is hiccup with his little dragon toothless and dana my little girl is astrid holding her little dragon stormfly. They like the movie "How to train your Dragon" and they are into it. While I was sewing elbow pads for our dogs, my little girl ask if I could make her an Astrid costume and here it is! she is wearing it right now! its not really the same outfit that Astrid wear on that movie, but I did my best and use whatever fabric I have, same as my boy, he got jealous and wanted me to make him one also as look like his favorite character on that movie hiccup. Look at them now, they both happy and they love to play pretend :-) Pretty amazing how this kid use their imagination.

I dont know so much about medical terms and other names of medication and this oxycontin is something new for me. So what i did, I make my own research and find out that oxycontin is a controlled release form of oxycodone prescribed to treat cronic pain and if it used property, it can provide pain relief for up to 12 hours. Kind a interesting isn't it? My husband been suffering with back pain and I guess he took some of that kind of prescription and it really helps him. How about this rapid detox for oxycontin? have you ever heard about this one? well if you want to find out, you can take a look at their website, they have a lot of information about this matter. You'll learn about the difference between this and other rapid detox centers, the meaning of rapid detox and how safe rapid detox for opiate addiction and so on.

Back to school!

Two weeks holiday vacation is over and now it's time for my 8 year old son to go back to school. He is kind a excited but still he wants to stay home today. But I told him he needs to go to school and say hi to everybody. Its pretty cold outside and we did pretty good this morning. I wake him up the same time I always wake him in the morning, have breakfast and get him ready. We might stop by at his school and have lunch with him. But will see...
