Christmas Day

We really had so much fun this year, Patty is more on Santa , the gifts and she said its Jesus birthday. I woke up Patty and then she asked me Mommy did Santa drink the milk and eat the Cookies ? I told her i don't know so she went in the living room to check if Santa stop by to bring some presents but the first thing she notice was the empty plate and the empty glass , He was here and dropped me presents..

Patty was very good so Santa brought a lot of presents to her, She got Princess Cash register, Baby Alive, Boots , 2 sets of make-ups real and a fake one, A trunk full of dress up gown like a princess, A StarStation with 2 microphones that we can hook up on our tv, Her Princess vanity table with a chair, A thick Princess Story Book, A large Coloring Book with all the Princess Characters, Her look and find Princess book, A diego games and many more

I got home 11:30 and i woke up Steve so we could bring all our presents upstair...Tomorrow morning i cant wait her expression by the time she saw the milk and cookies were gone.. well tell you more guys in my next blog Merry Christmas To all

Cake and Cookies

I was so happy to see my hubby and my daughter today at work, everyone said my daughter is precious and beautiful they even said my hubby is handsome, i was like walking between cloud 9 hearing all those comments about my daughter and my hubby..The reason why they went to work was to bring us the lumpia i made earlier, everyone like my lumpia they said i am a good cook (sorry guys i dont have a picture of my lumpia)..While im away at work hubby and Patty made cookies and cake too..

Having a birthday isn't complete without a birthday cake, Since we are celebrating Jesus birthday , My dear hubby and Pattylu bake this cake for Jesus and cookies to share with my co-workers... they did a good job for baking tonight i am so lucky coz hubby knows how to cook and bake...Love you Dad... here's the picture

Favorite card of the year

Christmas is one of the best time of the year to send cards to everyone you love and care about..I am very picky whenit comes to Christmas cards i want my card that says Merry Christmas not a Happy Holidays..The reason why we are celebrating Christmas? is the birth of our Christ.. This year i got cards from family and friends most are religious type of greeting but my favorite of all is from Our friend The Peterson Family. A very unique card and written by their eldest son John.. If i were his parents i would be proud too for coming up a nice meaning for christmas..
C = Christ was born
H = he was born in Bethlehem
R = Read the bible to learn about him
I = Is the only God
S = Showed the blind how to see
T= Took away all of our sind
M= Made us come alive
A = Always tells the truth, He never lies
S = Saved the sick
Good job John David...Hooray

A Dinner With Jim and Marriane

red wine, cheesecake, turkey, sweet yam, Patty's favorite greenbeans, green salad mashed potato and gravy and biscuits too

We had a simple dinner at our house tonight with Jim and Marriane our neighbor next door. They are always nice to me ever since i got here in Ohio..They are like Pattylu's Grandparents since my hubby's Parents died a couple years ago and mine are still in the Philippines hoping that one day we could be together here..Hubby prepared a turkey dinner which is really good...Oh man my Fireman knows how to cook. Gotta love having a fireman

Patty With Ben and my Pinay friends

Ang Mga Bata nga Ulit og snow

It was saturday when we had our chirstmas party among my pinay friends, the forecast that day was a crummy weather with snow then ice and rain but we still managed to go even if its snowing so hard..As always we really had a good time with Ate sonia's place, we ate a lot of Pinoy food and sing karaoke.. then around 2 we had more snow and bigger flakes so we decided to go outside had a picture taken with patty and ben and the rest of my pinay friends..i felt so bad though because i thought that i already talk to ate sonia about watching patty that evening , but she was surprised when i said we better go ate for a dinner with steve's friends . So i bought Ben an ornament as my sorry offering for what ive done... From left Arlene, ate Lyn, Myself and Joy.
