Pages, PAGES and pages....

After my finals and school commitments of my two boys, I finally felt my ME time! Two weeks ago, I had to control myself not to get near my papers and scraptable or else, studying will be my less priority. I always tell myself that happiness will come after a little sacrifice and I am always right! So for the past few days, I had my hands and heart playing again... this time there are NO rules, NO challenge or contest to meet,or NO materials or sketch requirements. I just scrapped, SCRAPPED and scrapped!

These pages are for my family in US... for Dionne, Mike and little Quinn, Donna, Seth, Graham, Sadie and Gracie, and for Reggie, Marilyn, Matmat, Matthew and Maggie. I had FUN scrapping your photos!

Your Smile...

Our Family

I Only have Eyes for You
Silly Boys

Holy Week starts tomorrow and we have no plans on going away for the holidays, hmmm them maybe I can play some more! Hope you guys can also create some crafty things this coming holidays. Have FUN and be SAFE everyone! TFL!

This was the first thing that came across my mind, it was like a relief! 10 months or 2 semesters of studying went a little fast and now, I have finished 18 units on BS Education major in Elementary Level. I have studied the Foundation of Education, Non-formal Education and Livelihood, Teaching Strategies, Child and Adolescent Development, Teaching as a Profession and my favorite, Assessment of Student Learning or Statistics. I maybe ready for teaching in a couple of months, but I am not sure if my kids will be ready to have a working mommy.

I don't know if I will be needing to complete the 30 units requirement for the board exams. But I decided to keep my summer FREE! I'm gonna miss my classmates, specially Frietzy and Rose who are both unit earners like me, my professor Sir Bats who always challenge me with his tricky exams, that stupid guard who always tells me to wear my ID, and I'm gonna miss wearing white top and black pants for my uniform. It's such a great feeling to be back to school and eventually have those brain cells working again after some time.

Don't ask me what's next for me!... all I know is that I want to relax, have fun with my kids, baby Garrie and my family, read the Secret book, scrap, SCRAP and scrap!

TTFN... tata for now, sabi ni Tiger!

Lorenzo turned 6!

It was a Monday when I gave birth to this little boy and the worst part of it? There was a nationwide transportation strike. I was due for three more weeks but my doctor discovered his breech position, so I was wheeled to the operating room and this precious boy came out to meet the world at 4:37 in the afternoon. So many stories about how my little Chuy was conceived, it was a very difficult pregnancy actually. That's why I cannot miss celebrating his birthday...

At first, Dodo and I decided not to have a party because next year will be a little big because he's turning 7. So since its little Chuy's day, we let him decide for his own celebration. He asked for a Gameboy and some Toy Story dolls. His school never encourage children to party in school, so we just packed some food and candies for his classmates. Then, Mommyla and Uncle Jay cooked Pancit Bihon, bought cakes, ice cream and lechon manok. His Ninang Janice and Ninong Buggy, Tito Jonjo, Tita Maan, Mamita Cora and cousins DK and Garrie were his guests... and we called this a party already!

It's not yet over! There's another celebration this coming weekend... hmmm somewhere up north and he is excited again!
