Fi Turns 3


 Our Felicia turns 3! Three years have flown by so quickly. The once toothless girl is now full of silliness, goofiness, and everything that makes us laugh. I call her the "sunshine" of our home. Simply because she fills our home with laughter.
She woke up this morning calling, "Oh Mama!" But daddy hurriedly ran to the bedroom and picked her up :) She got surprises of presents and balloons from daddy.



 
Mama baked her cinnamon rolls for breakfast. It's her personal choice for her birthday breakfast.





I made her Star Wars cupcakes (designs courtesy of Pinterest). Star Wars will be her birthday party theme. I thought she will choose R2-D2, but surprisingly, she chose Princess Leia, and later munched Darth Vader. Overall she had an awesome birthday!!! :)

Star Wars Crochet Hats Made With Love From The Philippines

So shock (yup, not just surprise) that the Star Wars and Patriotic crochet hats I ordered from a friend, Fe, in the Philippines arrived today. She mailed it on Monday and arrives Wednesday! There's two Padawans in the house that are so happy trying and wearing them.


I ordered R2-D2 hat for Felicia. She can wear it on her birthday (if she wants to) to complete her R2-D2 dress that I made for her. This R2 hat is so cute, the buttons look real :) The fit is just perfect for her.



Stormtrooper (supposed to be) for Evie. However, the size is too big, it would look like a helmet. Fe told me about the size. It will therefore be for me or for hubby. But Evie still likes it a lot, she wants to wear it.



I ordered patriotic hats for us three girls. Perfect for the 4th of July. Everytime Fi sees the colors of the flag, she always sings "Three Cheers For The Red, White, and Blue." These hats will keep her singing.


Fe sent a bonus Minnie Mouse hat! It is so cute and fits perfect on Fi (Evie too)! Love, love, love all of her works! Will order more! I love the fact that we have something that are made from the Philippines! :)

Graduating With Flying Colors

Evie in her graduate robe and cap.
Today, we hit another milestone. Our Evie graduated in kindergarten. Where has
time flown? She used to be just a teeny-weeny baby, oblivious of what was going
on around her. But now, she just achieved her introduction to the world of academics.

Well, not only did she survive her months in school, she also ends the school year
with flying colors. She's one of the few students in her class who received the Principal's Pride 
Honor Roll certificate of excellence. Whoa! How would you feel if you were her parent?
I am so proud of her. She worked so hard and right at the end, she earned and reaped the fruit of her labor.

The graduation ceremony was full of joy. All kids in both classes did awesome job
with their little presentation of singing.

Evie will surely miss all her friends in school and her teachers. At the same time, she
looks forward for a time off with academic stuff.





We later took her for some treats. Her daddy let her choose a toy at Toys R Us,
have two rides in the carousel, and get some ice cream.


I will have my little one with
me 24/7 again until she goes back to school as a first grader.

God has been so awesome and good to us. He kept Evie safe all the time while
she's in school, helped her with the things that she needed, protected
her heart and mind, gave her a wonderful experience with other
kids, teachers and staff. To Him I give all my praise! To Him be all
the glory! I am so sure, He's the proudest of His little one named
Evie.

Mummy

One of Fi's favorite things is stickers. This morning, her love
for stickers is satisfied. She peeled the remnants of shipping
labels we used and joyfully wraps them around her leg. Looks
like a good idea when you want a mummy costume for Halloween! :)

Mother's Day

Handmade with love.

It's that time of the year again --Mother's Day. This year
my kindergartner took home something special she handmade from
school. A beautiful watercolor painting of flowers in a jar with a cutout
picture of her.


This morning, they surprised me with garden stuff (a beautiful bird bath, and a Tinker Bell solar lantern), and a handmade card they
made last night (with daddy). Nothing beats handmade cards. I love it!

Sick Little Fi

I woke up in the middle of the night because of the feeling against my skin of something very warm. I touched Fi and was sure she had fever. She had a fever of 102° and gave her Tylenol. Right after I gave her medicine, she was talking a lot. So I decided to take her to the living room. She wanted to watch a show. I offered her popsicle and pretzels. She hadn't eaten much yesterday. She did not eat her lunch and dinner. She only had a banana in between. I thought she was just too tired too eat because she did not take a nap. Now I know why she didn't have appetite yesterday. She's feeling something inside that causes it. We don't know the cause. She does not have a cold or tummy upset.

I claim her healing in Jesus' name!

"I Spent Time With Jesus"

Daddy was in the bathroom, Fifi and Mama in the kitchen, Evie in the playroom yesteday morning. Few minutes later, Evie came out and told me, "I spent time with Jesus," with a smile on her sweet face. Awwww....I honestly didn't know how to respond. I was speechless. I was not sure if I'd tell her "good girl!" or something that makes her feel good inside. Instead, I just hugged her tight for few seconds. Then I whispered, "You're beautiful." When I finally got my composure, I asked how she spent time with Jesus. With so much glow in her eyes, she told me that she prayed to Jesus that there will be no fighting between her and sissy, that she will be a good girl, that everyone will have a good day and away from harm.

What mom wouldn't be touched of what her daughter just did? When she ate the candy with milk the other day, I told her that whenever something wrong happens, she must always call Jesus for help. I told her that Jesus will always be there to help. We just have to call His name and He will always, always rescues us in any trouble. She nodded.

The world we live in is dangerous. Danger looms. Evil creeps and sneaks around. My daughter will be exposed to such as this. But she wears her armor whenever she goes out by herself. The ultimate weapon that my daughter can use whenever she faces predicaments outside our care is in the name, "Jesus." That is why it is very important to me for her to know the power of the name and what He can and will do when we call Him.

God protects her all the time.
