Minion Theme on EJ's 8th Birthday

 My baby turned 8 years old on the 15th of this month.  We had a small get together with close friends and family.  When my kids started going to school, I stopped  doing birthday parties. We usually go somewhere to celebrate their birthdays rather than having a party.  This year however,  Mr. Burrito wanted to have  party at home,  That's what  kept me busy last week, cleaning, organizing and cooking.
We only invited our  closest friends in the neighborhood and the Burritos  Aunt.
 Up and below photos with Lolo Don and LOla Ruth Fancher.
 With Ate Sarah, one of the Howells' ladies.
 We played   scrabble and  monopoly and we all had so much fun!
 We had an ice cream cake  that we bought at Dairy Queen.
 Here's the birthday boy enjoying his  presents.
 Daddy to the rescue with the not so kid-friendly packages hehehe.
 We all agreed to idea of doing this kind of gathering more often because it's fun and brings us all closer.
 The Howells, having a serious time  doing monopoly with the Burritos.
 It's fun watching them.  I played scrabble with Lizzy and Nanay Ruth, we had a blast!
I decorated  the house   on Wednesday after I cleaned then I  prepared the food early as well.  Yesterday, I only have to do three things  rather than doing it all together, it was  stress free.
  Great to have neighbors that really cares.   Hope we could  do this again soon.  Hopefully!

Special thanks to Wholesale Party Supplies for the birthday in a box sent to me for review.

Confident

I have never tried deodorant - petal pushers but got curious upon stumbling it online.  I mean having a reliable kind of deodorant  is important especially if you   are attending  important functions or gatherings.  Let alone if you are going on a date, you don't want be sweating out  right?  If you are one of those people who doesn't want  parabens, propylene glycol, aluminum,alcohol or triclosan,  Petal Pusher's creations might be the one for you.  Being confident    is important  when you want to  have a lasting first impression.

Christmas Presents for the Kiddos

After attending the  mass last on Christmas Eve, we went straight to   Dad's house.  Everyone was  gone except my sister-in-law.  Dad was sleeping when we  arrived.   Chris told us that  EMTs came to the house and checked on Dad because he wasn't feeling well,  The kids  received some beautiful gifts from  Titaa Chris and Gail and Jen's family.  Thanks guys.
 The little Miss was  pretty excited of her new art supplies.
 The little man loves his presents as well.
 The Burritos woke up  before six on Christmas day so we ggot up  early as well.
 Wishes came true, thanks "Santa".  I feel bad for Santa, he is now broke lol.
 She loves this notebook that her cousin Jen gave her.  It lights up!
 Titas Chris and Gail spoiled her with new art supplies!
 Ms. Burrito made this in her Art class and gave it to us for Christmas!
 Here she is trying her new  toy.  She got what she wished for, a keyboard.
 The little man  got his wish as well, an iPod.  Thanks a lot Santa!
Here is a video I recorded of her.

Missing my Mom on her BIrthday

My Mom's birthday  is coming up in  two weeks.  Oh gosh, thinking about it makes me miss her so much.   It has been  5 years since we last  went to visit and  that is a very log time.  I was looking at joyjewelers.com for mothers rings and they have tons of selection.  I know that my Mom would say that she's rather see us  rather than  material things but  we can't really afford to  go home because of  financial constrains.  I wish that y Mom just live nearby so we could visit her often.

Christmas Party in School 2014

Let me  post this one before the  new year comes so I won't have to forget about it.  December 19th was the last day of school at St. Joseph the Worker.  IT was also the day where classes  had their Christmas parties.  I am so glad that my husband was off that day and he went with me at school.  Thanks to the homeroom Mom for inviting me over to the second grader's party.
 Our son got sick before he went to school so he was afraid to eat in fear of  throwing up again.  We served  pancake  fro,m Eat n' Park.  There were also a bunch of sweat treats from the homeroom Moms and from their teacher.
 My son's class is  very small.  There's only eleven of them  and one  was absent that day due to pneumonia but she later  came to see all of them before the Christmas breal.
 EJ was trying his best to enjoy the moment with his friends although he was feeling a bit under the weather.
 One more  shot with his friends.

One of the Moms from the First Grade share the precious first gifts to Jesus. by the three kings.  I thought that was very nice that she went around the classrooms and  tell a story about the gits.
 Oh my golly, my husband captured all the wrinkles in my face hahaha.  Oh well, part of  gettingolder is int it?
 It is so nice to be able to attend our kids gatherings and activities in school.  It makes them very happy to see their parents  getting involve of what they do.
 My son has beautiful classmates and they are akk pretty good kids.
I decided to crashed into the fourth graders' classroom and took some snaps of them.  Rylie's class  is big.  They are 19 in the class after one of their classmates transferred to other school last month.    

Showing interest  to what children does  gives them that confidence that  you truly care for them,  I am sure that they would remember it for the rest of their lives.  It is also a great example that they can use when they are grown up and have their own kids.
