Pics of Keisha and Nicole

Here are some pics of Keisha and Nicole that we took earlier today. They're still in their pajamas since they just woke up.

Pics of Keisha with the GE A735

As we promised, here are pics of Keisha (and some that she took) when she came home yesterday.

Coming Home

Keisha's over at my mom's place since yesterday and she's scheduled to come home today. I miss her already, but I used yesterday to do the laundry and other stuff so that I'd have today entirely with her.

I'm also excited to take pictures with her with the new digicam, since I haven't taken pictures of her yet. I'm also excited to take pictures with her, Nicole, Henry, my mom in law, and me. I guess something sort of like an informal family picture of sorts.

Her dad is also busy finishing chores like cleaning our electric fans, so that when she comes here she can rest for a little while and then we can go to the church for the Sunday mass.

I guess being away from Keisha just made me miss her terribly.

A Trip to the Mall

All of us are getting ready right now to go the mall. We're going to do some grocery shopping for Christmas and other stuff like bath soap, toothpaste, etc.

I forgot to mention that we bought a new ref, and now we need to put stuff in it - lol. So there, got to sign off guys, as I need to take a bath and get the kids ready.

Christmas Party at School

Today is Keisha's Christmas Party at school. I hurriedly went home from work so that I could make it home early as Keisha's party starts at 10am. I got home, got her dressed, and went to school with her. I also bought for her a meal from Jollibee, the one that has chicken and spaghetti in it.

Keisha also carried her gift for her classmate, the one she picked out of the pool. I hope her classmate likes it but more importantly, I am hoping Keisha gets a gift she'll like.

December 12 was a Success

I'd have to say we celebrated my mom's birthday with a bang. Although she already knew we were coming over, she was still surprised that we did come. Since I work at night, sometimes on weekends I promise her I'd drop by her house, and then find myself hours later magnetized on my bed and refusing against all reason to get up.

Keisha spent the evening with her Aunt Elena, my dad and mom, and me, my mom in law, and Nicole. Henry called while we were there, since we wasn't able to come with us as he had work. We bought a pancit malabon and a big chocolate cake, which unfortunately the icing was ruined and Keisha and Nicole's names were erased as it stuck to the top of the box.

It was so obvious that my parents missed the kids, and they were so surprised to see how big Keisha and Nicole had gotten. Remembering the evening we spent puts a smile to my face, although I ended up not being able to wake up for work and just rendering a half day's worth of work, it's so worth it.

Happy birthday mom! We love you.

Tomorrow's the Big Day

The surprise birthday party we've been planning all month is finally tomorrow. It's my mom's birthday, and I am really looking forward to it. I haven't been able to visit them for quite some time, and I'll be visiting them tomorrow with my mom in law, the kids, and hopefully Henry can join us as well.

Our presents are all ready and wrapped, and all we need tomorrow is to pick up the cake and the pancit we ordered. Keisha is also really excited about seeing her grandparents and her aunt. Hope everything goes well tomorrow!

Planning a Birthday Party

Leslie, Keisha, Nicole, my sister in law and my mom are busy planning a surprise party for my mom in law this Friday. Leslie already bought a present for her mom, and my mom is in charge of the birthday cake and the pancit, which is my mom in law's favorite.

Unless Keisha has already spilled the beans, my mom in law has no clue that we're having a party for her. They're planning on going over to their house right after Keisha's school on Friday.

I just hope that I won't be assigned to any work on that day, because I would love to go with them, especially since I heard my sister in law Elena plans on cooking lasagna on that day. Yum!

I know Keisha will have a great time on Friday as she'll get to visit her grandma, her grandpa, and her aunt. She likes staying there and they like having Keisha over as well. Hope everything turns out well on that date!

Marky Cielo Dies at the Age of 20

I'm sure Keisha will be sad when she hears that her favorite teen actor Marky Cielo, is dead. She's sleeping right now while I'm busy blogging and watching TV. The news report I heard is that he was found dead earlier today, December 07, 2008 by his mother who was trying to wake him up for a charity event around 6am but he never woke up.

As of now, the cause of death is still unknown, but there are reports that say he died in his sleep.

Our family would like to extend our condolences to Marky Cielo's family. He will be missed.

A Magic Wand

Henry and I went to my office to get my Christmas present for him and when we went home, we stopped by a tiangge selling all sorts of stuff, one of them being a battery - powered magic wand with sounds and lights.

I showed it to Henry, haggled with the price, and bought the said wand for Keisha. She and Nicole were still asleep when we got home, and Keisha was so happy to see the wand. She can't stop playing with it and is not yet done showing it off to everyone. Keisha is also very busy playing fairy godmother granting all of us wishes - me to be thinner (lol), her dad to have more hair (wahahaha) and her grandmother to be sexier, too.

Of course, pictures are still waiting to be uploaded as my USB cord to my cellphone is still missing. I would have also loved if you guys could see the pink crocs we bought for Nicole - she also hasn't taken them off yet - save for when she took her bath.

Choosing a Christmas Present

I wonder what Christmas present we should get Keisha this year. The problem with Keisha is that she easily gets tired of her toys and ignores them afterwards. Plus, she already has a lot of toys, so I really don't want to get her that for Christmas.

I am thinking of buying an easel for Keisha as she does love art, and can spend hours and hours writing and drawing. Plus, it will help her hone her art skills. I am just not sure where to put the easel in the house, but I guess when the easel's here, we'll figure something out.

All of us - Henry, my mom in law, Keisha, Nicole, and me went for a walk to look for nearby apartments. We thought of moving, as our current house can be hot during days since we only have 2 windows. While we were going home, we stopped by a store to buy ice, and Keisha bought a watercolor set. Henry and Keisha are busy doing watercolor art, and I took pictures but the USB cord to my phone is still missing.

I am beginning to think that Keisha is really inclined towards art. She can spend hours and hours with pieces of bond paper, pencils, and crayons. Now she has a watercolor set, I'm sure she'll be spending hours on it as well. I wonder what art Keisha will paint.
