Busy December & January

Who in the Philippines is not busy during December? I dont know anyone. Or I was sooo busy to even notice that. With all the preparations for Christmas and my hubby's arrival I wasnt able to blog much last holiday season, so let me give you a glimpse of what happened.

Dec 21st - had a wonderful time with my handsome date for the whole day.

Tree by tessa prieto with barbie dolls may live barbie pa ehem ehem

Dec 24 - before the gift giving and before thea doze off we had a fun pic with our santa hats!

Dec 25 Before the programme started we went up the stage and ask Bim for a pic. Right after Thea had tantrums na hehe.

Dec 28
Twas Kean's birthday and Ate Mai treats us to "Ocean Park" Yey! Double Yey if thea didnt hesitate to go inside the Park.
Dec 29 reunion with Highschool friends FOA was reunited

Jan 4 We went back to Ocean Park this time with the Regalado Family

January something (i forgot) date with bestfriend who I havent talked to for hmmm 7 years ba? whatever, it was great to see her again!

2 Nights before daddy leaves they became an item. Dont they look cute. I love this pic sooo much. Mwaaah kagigil

When Alvin left I was busy with my Valentine project. These cookies are a pain to make. Kneading is very traumatic especially when you refrigerate the dough and hasnt put shortening liberally. Plus decorating them takes too much time. Thus taking these cookies out of the valentine goodies.

Jan 13. Out of the blue came the LBC guy with flowers for moi! Ayiy!!! Doesnt need an occasion to receive flowers.

me hoping you had fun looking at our pics. hope you had a blast last Christmas too.

Hello 2011!

Hi! As much as I want to post everyday and keep this blog updated my life as a Stay at Home Mom prevents me to. I mean yes, I could but no I wont because I feel guilty when I miss something about Thea. I am sooo into her, oh well I bet you know naman na that by now.

Anyway here are my views for the coming year. Madame Nyem sees that this year would be quite life changing =) Georgraphical, Toddler Development, Business, Career, Baking, Relationship, Parenting and Family.

Here are Madame Nyem's predictions:
We'll be moving out stuff again in a major way. :D
That Althea will start to wow us more.
A business will bloom this february!
Dadda's career will burgeon more in 2011.
I will be the Baker Queen, more Heny Sison lessons will be taken.
Love will flourish, a date by the beach is forthcoming.
That we will be better parents, children and siblings this year.

These are the stuff I am hopeful to see this year. The stars and position of the sun arent really involve here. As they are very peculiar. You see now we have a different set of zodiac sign. Well I am not bothered really. I am not really into signs.

But just so you know here are the new zodiac signs. Isnt it nice to know that they changed? Making them more unbelievable?
from Time Magazine
Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16.
Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11.
Pisces: March 11-April 18.
Aries: April 18-May 13.
Taurus: May 13-June 21.
Gemini: June 21-July 20.
Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10.
Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16.
Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30.
Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23.
Scorpio: Nov. 23-29.
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29-Dec. 17. (Yep, this one is new)
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.

So there you go friends. Your thoughts are stronger than these signs, you can really turn them into things. The only things you need are faith and lots of prayers. And that will work a hundred percent.

have a happy new year everyone.

Much love,
