Thanksgiving Holiday

Hi guys, I'm back! I know I've been completely hiatus from blog hopping lately. Pardon me! Life has gotten extremely and ridiculously busy during the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Plus, we are in the process of moving. I hope I can keep up with you guys. Thanks for dropping your footprints on my blogs. Much appreciated! Anyhow, we celebrated our first Texas Thanksgiving holiday at my BIL's house.
We drove miles and miles to get to their place. It was a long drive going back and forth but it's all worth the trip.
A big yummy! Thanks to Bryan and Kelly for hosting.
 Akesha and her cousins. I was not able to take a lot of picture. Everybody was busy helping in the kitchen.
It was a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with lots of foodies! After dinner we watched a movie. Then after the movie, the adults played cards while the kids played a wii game.

Got the Keys!

 Weeeeee... After an hour of sitting at the closing table yesterday, we finally got the keys! Due to my excitement, I asked hubby last night to drop us (Akesha & I) off to our new house. Am glad he agreed. So we got up super early this morning and drove over there.
 The house is brand new and spotless. So there's no need to worry about cleaning our abode, which is great! I am SO PROUD of our new home. I think I have so much pride in it since it is "OURS". Sure, the condo in California is ours too...but owning a house is a BIG achievement for us.
I thank the Heavenly Father for all the Blessings HE have given me and my Family over the years. Thank you GOD!

Cheers to My Mom & Dad!

Happy 30th Wedding Anniversary to my parents! Ma and Pa, you have set an amazing example of what marriage and partnership are all about. You have allowed us to see you celebrate life’s joys and mourn its sorrows, and you’ve shown us what it means to work together through the hard times, knowing that there is always another good moment just around the corner. Your commitment and dedication to our family and to each other are awesome and inspiring.
Thank you for teaching us what it means to love someone, for sharing your wisdom and experiences with us, and for never failing to offer that piece of advice or insight. As I look forward to celebrating my 6th anniversary in a month, I can only hope that we will succeed in making our marriage even half as full of life and love as you have made yours. Cheers! Happy Anniversary both!

Wii Games

Who wants to play? One of my family's favorite past-times these days is playing the Wii. We started playing this game since January. Hubby got addicted to buying wii games. It's ridiculous because each game he bought cost $24.99 -$59.99.
I've been trying to lose weight by using some of these games, but I get lazy sometimes. It works though. I lose a few pounds but when I stop doing it, I gain back the weight I lost...hay buhay, parang life!

BM: A Well-Spent Weekend

How was your weekend everyone? I hope y'all had a wonderful one! Our weekend went mighty fine. Last Saturday we visited the San Antonio Zoo again and after our zoo adventure, hubby dropped me off to Burlington Coat Factory. Then Sunday we played wii games and spent the rest of our Sunday afternoon at the mall. Time was well spent. How about you?
Our 4-year old daughter is totally obsessed with animals. So last Friday night, father and daughter had a conversation:
Akesha: Papa, can we go to the Zoo tomorrow?
Papa: We already went to the Zoo. Why don't you ask mama, and see what she wants to do tomorrow.
Akesha: Come on papa, can we go to the Zoo tomorrow?
Papa: I said, you have to ask Mama!
She did not ask me because she knew I will say "NO". But we went ANYWAY!!
I feel like it's still summer! It is! Summer in November. Sounds weird isn't it! I thought it's time to bundle up but not yet. My sweaters and boots are ready for some action!
