The Joy of Being a Parent


Having two very energetic kids is a joy and exhausting at the same time. The exhaustion however is always overshadowed by the joy you feel when you see them laughing and giving you hugs and kisses and tell you that they love you.  The joy of being a parent is magical.
Sometimes, you wish that they won't grow up, that they could just stay as young as they are  for us to cuddle and hug all the time.

Dead Critters

If you ca still remember, I have featured "the Grinny" that my father-in-law had in his porch. We visited there that night  and I saw the Grinny  in the middle of the road in front of my FIL's yard, dead. Somebody hit him hard.  He was just a  chipmunks but we were all saddened with his death because he was Dad's pet.  My FIL scooped him up and buried him at the back of his house.
We also saw this dead bird on the  road when we went for a walk.
I apologized for these depressing photos folks.  I don't want to ruin your day but I just had to share it here.

Poppies

We went for a family walk the other day to give all of us some exercise while enjoying the beauty of the environment. We passed by this house with pretty poppies blooms in their yard and I couldn't resist not to take a few snaps.
We will be out for a party today. Thank you for your visit and comments! Will try to bloghop tonight.

Carnival

As I have mentioned on my other blog, we took our kids at the carnival yesterday but we were too late because they were packing out already lol.
Oh well, it's money saved hehehe. The price of the tickets for games and rides are ridiculously high anyway.
I just don't understand their timing because they set it up when the rain was pouring continuously then when it finally  warm up, they left, whew!
I took the photos while we were  driving as we left the area.  With so many photos  in my archive, I am planning to order some photo books soon.  I have order some printed ones on my  other photos so I will be arranging it  I am just waiting for my daughter's vacation because she love to do that kind of stuff with me.

Wishing Well

One of the thing that our Burritos love at Robinson Mall is the Wishing Well. They love to throw some coins and make wishes there.
I asked them what they wished for and they wouldn't tell me but they said that Santa knows!

Elegant WP Themes

I noticed that a lot of bloggers I know had transferred their Blogger platform blogs into WordPress.  They said that it is much better with WP  compared to the former platform.  I had a  short experience of having a WP blog but then I had to give it up because my IP address was being blocked and I couldn't access it.  I think it was due to the   hosting provider being down and I did not want to fool with it so I gave up.  Besides I had too many already that I couldn't keep up anymore, it was a nice experience though.  

What I liked about it is that there are  certain  websites that provides  elegant WP themes and you have so many options of  choosing the design of your blog that would  suit your blog's theme.  In fact I have  came across wpStyles website that offers  an in-depth review of the different kinds of designs webmasters  and blog owners.   They have a gallery where you can find  Word Press eCommerce themes, magazine themes, personal blog themes, Word Press Portfolio themes, and a lot more.  So if you are looking for an elegant  WP themes, try to check out wpStles, you won't regret  taking time to browse their site.

Spic and Span

I mopped our kitchen floor last weekend using Spic and Span cleaner. The kids love this big bubble that S&S created when I splashed it on the floor.
How about you, what do you use to clean up floors?

Birthday

My daughter's teacher gave Ms. Burrito a little treat. She brought some free snack last week. She wanted Ms. Burrito to have a mini birthday celebration with her classmates so even if it's not her birthday yet, they celebrated it.  Thanks a lot Mrs. Runkel!

Hair Transplant

As man's age progresses, there are certain things that affects his physical  attributes such as hair loss and other stuff.  Some  guys losses their hair as they  aged so they use hair restoration products to  help their hair regrow.  My husband is very lucky because he has a very thick hair, I don't think he would ever have to  worry about hair loss but you can never tell.

For those who are battling with hair loss, you can check out the hair transplant experts at DrPistne Restoration.  They can give you a new hair which would bring you a new life that you would love more than ever.  Choosing the right surgeon that  will perform hair transplant is a big factor if you want to achieve a satisfactory result.  By consulting the hair transplant experts at the above mentioned website, you will be able to  out the  best one for you.  Why face the  uncomfortable feeling of  having  baldness if you can get it through a hair transplant.

PC Tools

A couple of days ago, I thought  my  PC was infected with a virus again because it will just hang for no reason but thanks goodness that it was  the wireless  mouse that had a problem.  It gave up on me so my husband had to install the  other mouse (not wireless)  in my PC.  I am a little paranoid when it comes to  computer viruses after   my PC crushed    a few months ago so every time my PC is acting up, I would immediately assumed that it is infected  with a virus.

Having a good protection  for our computer unit is a must especially if you are visiting too many websites a day like me.  I am glad that the  computer technician who  fixed my PC recommended this good anti virus protection to us.  You can find the easy to use speed up tools  by visiting PC Tools website, just Click Here to  learn more about it.  PC Tools offers an Internet protection with their advanced anti virus and malware protection  software.  They also  provide  Windows tools that  could boost your PC's speed and optimize it's use.  For more details, please visit the site  through the link provided above.

The Grinny

This little chipmunk is a regular visitor to my FIL's front porch. My FIL always buys a bag of nuts and give this little critter his food.
Dad calls him Grinny because he is always grinning, he says.  Who wouldn't grin if someone gives you food everyday hehehe.  
This grinny is Dad's  special pet.  He said that sometimes, when he is sitting in front of the porch, the Grinny will come out and just stare at him  ust like saying "Hi, aren't you going to give me food?" Lol!

Apidextra

Would you like to read a real review about apidextra?  Check out the link and read the detailed information gathered and provided by the website about the said product.  You will also find out the best price that you can find online through their site.  With so many diet pills and other  weight loss supplements available in the market, it is nice to have  some company that provides reviews about  different products.  So be sure to read  articles first before buying  one.

Robin's Eggs

The Robin that is occupying our back porch only has two or three eggs every year but the one that is occupying our front porch, she always has more.
When my husband  mowed the grass the other, he saw this  empty shell  laying around in the yard.  I am not sure if one hatched already or the mom tried to  bring one egg somewhere and it broke.  I don't know lol.

New Blog Badge


I want to thank the talented  author of the blogs above fro tweaking the badge of this blog, thank you so much Rhe!.  She actually owns  multiple blogs which she recently moved to  WordPress.  I admire   people like Rhe and Dhemz for  having a  talent in designing blogs as I  don't have that skill at all.  For them, changing layout is just like changing clothes lol.  For me, it's  a impossible job to do.  I am glad that I  am surrounded with very nice friends who are willing to lend  hands and shared their talents.  Thanks guys!

Below is my old and new badge for this blog.

Candlesticks

Blomus is the main manufacturer of the stainless steel products that you can find at the Stainless Steel Store.  They make blomus stainless steel, mailboxes, fireplaces, outdoor decor and other stuff.  Then if you want to have a relaxing evening, you can use those stainless steel candle holders that they have.  There are so many things that you can find  in that store that if you are one of those people who love stainless steel, you wouldn't leave the site without buying  a product or two.

Blomus Stainless Steel Matte CandlesticksI like these blomus stainless steel candlesticks  that they got, it reminds me of the  hotel where we stayed in when we went island hopping in Korea.  We stayed  three nights at the said  hotel for our  Memorial getaway  at one of the most popular island in the land of the morning calm, the Jejudo.  How I wish, we could visit the beautiful island again in the future.  We have so many fun memories during our short  getaway.

Godmother's Gift

These are the gifts that Mr. Burrito got from her Godmother last year but I wasn't able to blog about it. Thanks a lot Ate Agnes!
This was  given to him on December 2009 but since it was a little big, he waited till last year to wore it for the first time.
Some outfit and a cheque were  the gifts Mr. Burrito received from the same person last year.  Thanks Tita Ninang!
