DIY Fun Photo Shoot @ Home

I am enjoying taking photos using my phone only. It’s very handy and I can easily upload it right away.

Last Thursday I decided to take photos of Isabelle. The plan was documenting her growth on a monthly basis.

But I have to say that this can be challenging the boys wouldn’t sit still, they just wanted to play with the magnetic letters and Inigo will throw them everywhere. I had to tell them that I will allow them to watch Disney Channel if they will let me finish. And it works! Thank you Handy Manny and Agent OSO for the help!

Anyhooo, Sending you good vibes on a Sandy Saturday!

Letter to Jelly Bean @ 1 month old

My sweet and beautiful little princess…

A month old already. I can’t believe I have had a DAUGHTER for a month. My goodness, you have brought so much love into our home, and I have absolutely loved getting to know you better during this last month. You are so darn cute, you started to gained weight.
You look absolutely like your dad and I am consistently having to remind myself that you are his girl version. That’s why we are calling you ” little angelina” derived from your daddy’s name.

You have no idea just how much you are loved already… not only by us, but so many people we are fortunate to have in our lives.

I love our time when I am breastfeeding you. You have been a good eater and latched on right after you were born at the hospital, and I am so grateful for that.

You have had somewhat of a stuffy nose, which has made it a little more complicated for you to eat and sleep sometimes… but you are such a good girl when we have to suction you to help.

Your daddy and I have had several conversations we can’t believe that we are now a family of FIVE… including a li’l princess! I am excited to see how our relationship flourishes and grows in the coming months and years. I look forward to having a very special bond with you. I will always be here for you… to support you and love you unconditionally.

Love always,

Mommy

Sharjah Dining Out- Chinese New Year @ Chopsticks

And because it’s Chinese New Year we tried the Chinese restaurant in Sahara Mall. Nope we’re not Chinese.. umaarte lang!

While taking our orders they gave us their complementary chicharon with 3 different dipping sauces ( chili sauce, soy sauce and the sweet and sour). I don’t know if we are just hungry but we asked for another serving kasi masarap siya. hehe

For starter we sampled their Shrimp Dumpling and we did enjoyed this dish. Di siya tinipid sa shrimp and it’s very tasty.

For mains we had Chicken Cashew, Crispy Beef and Garlic Rice. The Chicken Cashew does not blend well with our choice of rice pero carry na din but the Crispy Beef is the best. So yummy and even without rice pwedeng papakin.

Wednesday Activity – Melted Mini Bundt Cake Crayons

We have a bunch of broken crayons I have been saving, but can’t find any way of how Kuya Angelo can still use it.

Then I thought it would be fun to try to recycle the crayons. And come up with something he will surely love.

The first thing I did was to pulled out the mini-bundt -shaped baking tray I bought from Day to Day.

Then we remove all the paper and break the crayons up into small pieces. We tried to fill the molds up so they were pretty full but without having any bits hanging over the edges of the shape.

Next place baking tray in oven until crayons melt. (About 15 mins.) I watched them closely until they are completely melted.

Remove tray from oven. Let cool for a few minutes, then put into the freezer until they harden.

Place baking tray on counter, turn it over and pop it out.They should fall out easily.

Aren’t they gorgeous?
