Our 2nd Visit at Camayan Beach Resort

We found a place to stay at Tiara Hotel, the only hotel that has rooms still available. Looks old, but it's okay, we just spent the night there then headed down to Camayan again.
We just rented a cabana since we'll be staying till the afternoon. It was still drizzling when we went there then later on the sun came up!

"Thank you Lord, for the good weather"..

Oh, this was Andi's request for her coming birthday on September 2, she's turning 4! :)

lovin' the sand!

1st Quarter Assessment 2011

We’re so excited for the first quarter assessment of the kids..  Oh well, scared and excited, we’re not sure of what to expect..  I just hope I won’t hear their teachers complaining about my kids.. 

We started with Andi, we’re not really expecting anything..  But her teacher told us her rank at school..  She’s number 1!!!!!!!!  Hubby and I were teary eyed for we’re not expecting that, a good conduct was okay but number 1?  We’re on CLOUD 9!!  J  Her teachers are so proud of her too, we didn’t even heard anything unpleasant from her teachers, she’s so different at school compared to how she is at home.  She’s not shy, she always participates at school, dances well, gets along with her classmates well.  We’re so PROUD!

After Andi, we went up to Kian’s room.  1st Honor!!!  (We we’re kinda’ hoping for that, but no pressure for Kian).  Her teacher told us he’s her assistant, like Kian always tries to finish fast with his seatwork and then asks his classmates if anyone needs his help,There’s just one problem, Kian’s starting to speak Tagalog more often, and his teacher relies on him to get his classmates into speaking English.  His teacher said that it’s like he’s trying to let everyone understand what he’s trying to say, so he speaks Tagalog, but changes into English when asked to.  Awww.. so nice..  So PROUD! 

After their assessments, we went to Kumon for Kian's exam, waited for almost 20 minutes.  He got a perfect score!  He'll be taking the Free trial for two weeks, hopefully he'll like it so we can enroll him.  He's lovin' math.

Seeing the results of my kids at school makes me feel fulfilled as a Mom, we won't put pressure on them, we'll still let them enjoy school and support them all the way! :)

Happy Birthday Mama Mary!

September 8, is the birthday of Mama Mary.  It is the feast day of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus.


Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we turn to you, O Virgins of virgins, our Mother. To you we come, before you we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, do not despise our petitions, but in your mercy hear us and answer us. Amen.

Immaculate Virgin, Mother of Jesus and our Mother, we believe in your triumphant assumption into heaven where the angels and saints acclaim you as Queen. We join them in praising you and bless the Lord who raised you above all creatures. With them we offer you our devotion and love. We are confident that you watch over our daily efforts and needs, and we take comfort from our faith in the coming resurrection. We look to you, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. After this earthly life, show us Jesus, the blest fruit of your womb, O kind, O loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death Amen.

Andi's 4th Birthday

We already had an early celebration of Andi's birthday, we granted her birthday wish to go to the beach.  But of course, it's not a celebration if you don't have the cake (or cupcakes), food, balloons and loot bags (as to our kids!), so we gave some loot bags to her classmates as her school doesn't allow parties in the classroom, and we had a small gathering at our house with some friends and her cousins.

I made her cupcakes!  "Kikay" themed of course! 
Me: Andi, wag malikot, I'm gonna fix your hair para pretty kasi it's your birthday.
Andi: Eh pano pag di ko birthday? pag birthday ni kuya? pag birthday mo? pag birthday ni daddy?
♥♥ hehehe oo nga naman..

the birthday girl!
We ordered food from Boy Ching Woo Restaurant (our all-time favorite!), we had Pancit Shanghai, Mr. Woo Fried Rice, Battered Chicken, Lechon Con Tokwa and Beef Broccoli.  
Hubby had to order again, buti na lang you can place your order in advance and just pick it up in 15-20 minutes.  Takaw namin! :)

family pa lang namin party na! :)

Happy Birthday Andi!! We love you soo much! :)
