We were glad the boys sat the whole time while watching Dolittle though my eight-year-old was a little wiggly for minutes. But, he finally settles down when he moved to another empty seat. I guess he wants to be on his own, lol, he is a little independent. And about the movie, we all enjoyed it! It’s a perfect family movie, especially for the little ones ♥♥♥.
Our dog’s name is Daisy. Half Havanese-half Schnauzer breed. She is a rescued dog. Sean’s niece, Hayley, rescued her. And now she’s with us for more than a year. And we are so happy to have her. Now, we may have spoiled her a little, hahaha. Daisy is a sweet and very loving dog. She loves to go outside to play fetch and to check for squirrels. She loves belly scratch, neck massage, and use me as her pillow most of the time. And most of all, very protective of us-her humans. She might be little, but she is feisty!
We were speechifying this morning whether we should go to the Boardwalk in Shreveport, eat at Joe’s Crab Shack, or have lunch and take the boys somewhere closer. Maybe, if the weather were a little warmer, it would have been a big yes going to Shreveport. But with this nasty and windy weather, kids don’t enjoy much (I know them very well, lol ). So, we decided to go to the mall and get some food first before heading to Tilt Studio. Of course, when they heard that we are taking them to Tilt Studio, they couldn’t wait for long, hahaha. We want them to have fun, plus they love this place (Tilt Studio) very much! Seeing them having fun and enjoying every moment of it is everything for us. We had a perfect Saturday!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! Last week, we were finally able to check the house in Branson, Missouri, that’s on the market. Sean and I had been browsing homes in Branson online, but we always come back to this one house that we checked last week. When we first saw this house posted on the market, we both looked at each other and, at the same time, said, “Oh, this house is beautiful!” We’ve been praying for this house since we saw it on the market, and we are still praying continuously for this specific house.
“When you pray for something, be specific.”
When we were at the house location, we were almost speechless. Built-in 1978, this gorgeous home is ready to move-in. Very well taken care of, and 90-95% completed. Even the basement is fully functional. It has an open space inside with lots and lots of storage cabinets — at least four bathrooms. The master bathroom size shocked us the most – it’s like another master bedroom size, golly! We fell in love with the antique vibe of this house. I think the only words that came out from my mouth the whole time were, “oh, my goodness!”And, so as Sean. Well, see what’s going to happen next. We will continue to pray and let God do the rest.
We eyeballed that house for an hour. After the house viewing, we went to the boardwalk and had fun for a little bit. It was a great day for us!
I want to be honest with you all; I don’t know all of the 50 U.S states abbreviations. Seriously, guys, my 8-year-old son knows all the States’ abbreviations more than I do. He learned all of it just by watching the weather channel many times every single day when he gets the chance to have the TV-controller. He and his big brother are so obsessed with checking weather temperatures not just in our area but also in other states. Sometimes, they are also reviewing other countries weather temperature. We don’t even have to check the next day’s weather prediction, because of the boys telling us “oh, it’s going to be a little warmer tomorrow, and we don’t need to wear a jacket.” Or they would say, it’s going to be partly cloudy all day today or tomorrow with a 30% chance of rain.” They are both very observant, and they are really into it. Perhaps, watching the Weather Channel helps my little one learned all of the 50 states’ abbreviations. Aside from the States abbreviations, he also knows the capital cities and what state each capital city located. I’m shocked! You can ask me about it, and my answer would be, “I don’t know!” Hahaha! I might need to watch the Weather Channel too, lol.

Before, I used to talk to myself when I’m all alone in the house. Whenever Sean works in the office, and the boys are in school, I’m home all by myself; and I talk to myself most of the time. But since last year, when Sean brought Daisy (our dog) home, everything changed. She is so sweet and such a mommy’s girl. Daisy loves to sleep on my lap whenever she can. She will compete with the boys and always wins ♥♥♥.

Wow! Where has the time gone? It seemed like it was only yesterday that I had an emergency C-Section when I was 25-1/2 weeks pregnant with my eldest son, who then weighed only 1lb-7oz, and stayed 4 -1/2 months at the hospital. And now, he is 11-years-old? No wonder why my knees are hurting, and my bones are cracking. Oh my, I’m old! Tsk..tsk..tsk. Although I’m feeling old, however, I’m so blessed to have two angels in my life!
His birthday was yesterday, but we celebrated it on Sunday so everybody ( friends ) can come and celebrate with us after church service. My son was so happy! He was smiling from ear to ear the whole time. He even said, “Mommy, I’m so happy today!” That was just a touching moment for me. He used to be quiet and doesn’t give his birthday a big deal. On that day, he was so expressive of his emotion. He had a blast!
Thanks to everybody who joined us celebrating my son’s birthday. You made him very happy too! Thankful to some of my friends who brought dishes and dessert. Also, to those who cooked and even washed dishes and clean the kitchen. You guys rocked! Glad to see everybody had fun, as well. God bless you all!

Hi all, I have been MIA for days on my blog. I had been a busy and exhausted mom for days. School is out for Thanksgiving break, and you (parent/parents) know what that means. My boys are like “mommy, mommy, mommy all day long.” Especially my little one, he can talk all day long for sure. The only time I have a break from them is when they are napping and when they are in bed at night, hehe. But I love them to the moon and back.
Anyway, last Saturday, I had so much fun capturing my dear friend and her daughter’s Christmas mini session. You can check this session here. The location I chose was the Dilliard’s store. It was a perfect location for this session. Dilliard’s has a wide variety of lovely Christmas decorations throughout their store. It was just perfect!

Have you ever heard of the Nygard brand? I’m wearing Nygard denim pants. When it comes to pants, I have been a Nygard’s biggest fan for 4 years now. I love every Nygard leggings and pants that I have. So worth the price! You should try this brand. I highly recommend this brand.
