handmade calendar

I just joined a yahoo group for scrapbookers here in Manila ... so many wonderful ideas that I'm getting from their own sites. Here's one ...

It's a handmade calendar and I believe I'll make one as well but not exactly like this. This is just an inspiration to guide me.

I know it's not a scrapbook thing but it's just so cute. Here are some more craft stuff that this person made.

a grandfather

Someone who loves you unconditionally,
and spoils you whenever he can.
Someone who'll scold your Mom and Dad
whenever you do wrong,
because in his eyes, you just can't.
Someone who'll do whatever he can
to make everything all right
and keep you safe all day and night.
For in truth he's your guardian angel
on earth sent by God
to watch over you, protect you,
and simply love you.

take time mommy

Take time to hold me on your lap, to joke with me and make me laugh. Take time mommy, this time will go so fast. Take time to give me extra hugs, to teach me a nursery rhyme or song. Take time mommy, I won't be little long. Take time to tuck me into bed, to read that story you know by heart. Take time mommy, soon these days will part. Take time to excalim over what I color, to admire the things I make from clay. Take time mommy, I'm growing up and away. Take time to imagine or make believe, to play some childish or silly game. Take time mommy, soon it won't be the same. Take time to let me help you work, to teach me the many things you know. Take time mommy, enjoy me as I grow.

B's New Crib

My son is INCREDIBLE HULK incarnate. He actually broke his old crib ... yes, he did. Mind you, it wasn't some cheap crib that we got but as someone said, maybe he had an incredible hulk moment and managed to tear it apart.

So we got a new one and the one we bought is no longer elevated ... it lies flat on the ground and is big enough to fit even one of the parents.

This is B looking a tad bit miserable since he can no longer gnaw at his crib (clothe doesn't taste that good.) He does love the fact that he gets to really roll around now more than ever.

Twin's Senior Ball

Last night, APril 6, marked the Senior's Ball of my brothers, Karl and Kirk. Kirk won Best Dressed Male! Yipee!!!! Fashionista!

Here are some pictures ...

This is the four of us in the balcony of the Manila Peninsula, one of the most expensive hotels in town, if not the most expensive.

This is Karl, posing for the pictorial. Handsome no? =) He's wearing seagreen suit which complimented his dark color. He hates photo ops by the way. This is Kirk, the one who got the best dressed award. He was the only one who wore a light colored suit with a turtleneck shirt instead of the typical polo. My husband helped pick this ensemble. Cool no? And here they are with their childhood friends, Jillan and Mark Louie.

*tears* They're all so grown up now.

For more pictures ... go here.

Build Me A Son

Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is a afraid; one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.

Build me a son whose wishes will not take the place of deeds; a son who will know Thee-and that to know himself is the foundation stone of knowelede.

Lead him, I pray, not in the path of ease and comfort, but under the stress and spur of difficulties and challenge. Here let him learn to stand up in the storm; here let him learn compassion for thoses who jail.

Build me a son whoses heart will be clear, whoses goal will be high, a son who will master himself before he seeks to master other men, one who will reach into the future, yet never forget the past.

And after all these things are his, add, I pray, enough of a sense of humor, so that he may always be serious, yet never take himself too seriously. Give him humility, so that he may always remember the simplicity of true greatness, the open mind of true wisdom, and the meekness of true strength.

Then I, his father, will dare to whisper, "I have not lived in vain.
