My husband and I can't help but to get really excited of the thought that we might be moving back to Washington, a place where we felt we really belong. We decided that if we move there, we wanted to buy a small house in cash and although it may not be as nice as any of these homes for sale nags head nc but we're going to have a big land too that I can do a lot of gardening. The thought of not paying our monthly mortgage is so awesome! I can't wait to start our new family life in Washington but whatever is God's will or plan for us, we are definitely be obedient to Him. After all, God knows what's best for us.
I would say that this week is really a wonderful week for us. First of all, our friends from Washington came over here in Arizona and we had a chance to meet them. It was like a big reunion for all of us! Last Saturday, we had dinner with Jodi and her family after her college graduation. Yesterday, we went to Scottsdale and met another friend and her husband. It was a lot of fun meeting all our friends. We felt like we're on vacation too while we're with them. This week also, I will have my appointment at the INS office for my Biometrics. Another good news is that we paid off our land in the Philippines. My husband got a sub contractor job that he can just work at home. We also received a letter that our application for medical insurance has been approved. Also, this week, we'll have about $600 or more for food...what a blessing!!! God is so so good. We can't stop giving him all the honor and glory!

I am so frustrated right now that we can't find that very important document! My husband told me that he put it in our safety envelope but when I checked, its not there. Ahhh...This happens many times already and luckily, I can still be able to get a copy of it but of course, it costs money too. I definitely learns a lesson and I realized that we do need something like these kenneth cole briefcases to store all our important documents. We can also use it to keep our laptop safe. I told my husband that we should get it as soon as possible, especially now that we are moving to another state.
Miriam Joy and Miriah Faith are our greatest treasures here on earth! Our little artist Miriam is always busy with anything that she can create of and her little sister Miriah is always there to support her by simply appreciating her work. Every time the big sister is busy with something, the little sister is curious and would want to try it out too. Not too long ago, Miriam was painting and Miriah grabbed the paints and started using them with the paintbrush and of course, the big sister was not happy about it. There was a moment though that the two just listen and learn from each other and I was very lucky to have caught it with the camera. Take a look at the picture above, aren't they sweet and adorable? I just love the facial expressions of my two lovely girls. What a treasure!
We went to three stores last night to look for a burlap draperies but we didn't find any and so we just went back home and there I found them online! I ordered a pair for our kitchen. My husband asked me why I really want this kind of draperies and I simply answered him they reminded me of our house in the province when I was just a little girl. Aside from that, they just look so naturally gorgeous and he totally agreed. :-) Our kitchen will look so nice with it.
Last weekend, we're suppose to meet my filipino friend in Grand Canyon but because of some inevitable circumstances, sad to say that we didn't get a chance to do so especially that her group was at the west rim which is so far from us, plus we heard so many bad reviews about the trip to go there and the skywalk. My husband said that if we're only meeting them at the North rim then it shouldn't be a problem. I wish I planned this trip better because I really do want to see her. It's been about 10 years since we last saw each other in college in the Philippines. Anyway, my husband and I decided to go to Flagstaff and Sedona, instead. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery a LOT! We were so amazed of God's handiwork! It's simply breathtaking! We are planning on going back there one of these days. It was indeed a fun weekend for all of us but I miss my friend so bad! Maybe next time, we will be able to meet here in the states during her next visit. She's from UK.
Anyway, enjoy the photos I shared!
Last night we had a very successful fellowship again with our friends and the kids. Indeed, it's a blast praising and worshiping Jesus. The food was great too! Everyone was satisfied and enjoyed having each other. Truly, its a real blessing when brothers and sisters in Christ gathered together, honoring the Creator of the universe!
One of our friend's daughter is having a sleepover here in our house. Later today, we will be going to a birthday party also. The fun just wont end, right?
I better keep going and get ready for later. God bless everyone! Happy Weekend!
My husband and I were talking about spending one weekend somewhere where the kids can enjoy a lot. One of the places that we thought would be a nice place is at Grand Canyon. We haven't been there before and we always hear nice things about it. I suggested to my husband also that instead of using our own car, it would more fun also if we consider car rental, just like we did before. We rented that cute and very nice car that I so really love. My husband told me that it's a very good idea especially now that our car is having a problem and we don't want to get stuck in the road when it breaks. That would be a real disaster and would ruin the trip. When you rent a car, you don't have to worry about things like that because everything is taken cared of which is a total peace of mind.
For the last 3 days, my husband and I were having lots of fun babysitting our friend's kids. She has 2 girls (ages 6 and 2) plus our girls is equivalent to a full house of fun, indeed! We took them to a birthday party at the Polar Ice where the 2 older girls, Miriam and Vanessa had fun ice skating. On the other hand, the other 2 little ones were also having lots of fun just roaming around the place, giving us a great work out hehehe...My husband and I didn't have a chance to ice skate since we forgot to bring our socks. We're planning on going back there this summer and we will definitely be prepared for it. I can't wait.
Anyway, here's a cute photo of the kids:
I've been watching this show on tv about these defiant teenagers who at a very young age of 10 started smoking and drinking. I felt so sorry for them and for their parents. There's got to be a very huge reason why these teenagers are like that. Their parents were asking help from experts about their teenagers. They are so afraid that if they are not treated right away, they will end up in jail or worst, killed. This drug rehab los angeles
can really help them and I am so happy that they will stay there for recovery. These kids are very smart and they still have a big and bright future ahead of them. I've known so many people who went to these treatment centers and the results are amazing! There are so many health experts, guidance counselors, psychologists and many more who can really help these kind of people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol.
